Driving Miss Doggy


The question you woke up asking, how competent are dogs behind the wheel?

A Lakewood, WA man was arrested Sunday on March 29 after leading troopers on a high-speed chase, according a spokesperson for Washington State Police.

Hitting two cars, speeding along on a high speed chase, traveling over 100 miles-per-hour, after blocks of erratic driving, state troopers couldn’t get the car to stop.

Troopers were only able to force the driver to stop using spikes on the road.

When that finally happened, they discovered an old man in the passenger seat and a dog behind-the-wheel.  The passenger and dog’s owner reportedly  explained that he was just teaching his dog how to drive. And yes, he had a bit too much to drink.

The good news s that no one was injured in the chase.

Naturally, the man was charged with reckless endangerment, hit and run, driving under the influence and a felony of eluding law enforcement. The dog, described as a “very sweet girl,” was taken to a nearby animal shelter where she will hopefully find a more sensible owner. The dog was not arrested.

If you think this is made up, this is video of another dog behind-the-wheel, but under a different circumstance.
