When a rolling car bumped into a Walmart in Wayne, West Virginia, on Friday, witnesses probably didn’t expect to find man’s best friends behind the wheel.
The owner of the car says she left her two dogs in the vehicle while she went shopping. She left the car running in order to keep the pups cool, WSAZ reports.
Big mistake! The dogs shifted the car out of park and took a little joyride.
Confused shoppers watched as the slow-moving vehicle collided with the building.
The incident is yet another lesson in why it’s a bad idea to leave your dog in a hot car, even if the air conditioning is on.
Witnesses said the car owner appeared to be in her late 70s, according to WSAZ. The station reported that the dogs were fine and that both the car and the building sustained only minor damage.
Now, if the dogs do decide to take another shot at driving, perhaps they should first visit New Zealand, where a very talented pair of canines completed a driving test in 2012 on live TV.
These West Virginia dogs could learn a thing or two about checking your blind spot and making a left turn.
