Hit And Run
I'm thinking Swedish dogs don't read English. If they did they would have learned a lesson from the story the other day about the Pit Bull who drove the car through the car wash.
This incident was so unnecessary, had those dogs ordered an English course from Rosetta Stone this tragedy could have been avoided.
A miniature Schnauzer and its Chinese Crested friend were fingered as the culprits in a Swedish runaway car incident, police said.
The canines were found curled up in the backseat of a car that had smashed through a fence and ended up in the yard of a home in the southern Swedish town of Skurup Friday, the Swedish news agency TT reported.
The homeowners initially thought the culprit had fled because no one was behind the wheel, but on closer investigation found the dogs on the backseat, uninjured but very frightened.
"The dogs had presumably managed to knock the gear box and put the car into neutral on a downhill slope while their owners were paying a visit to friends," Calle Persson of the Skane police told TT.
Two important things to take away from this story. Dogs like to visit with friends too and don't appreciate being left in the car. And for the dogs...remember to buckle up, not only is it a good idea, it's the law.
