Topic: "Pit Bull Revenge"(4)
Some time ago Frodo remarked about Mick, the Wonder Dog, and his unending joy as a passenger in Frodo's motorcar. Recently, in Pryor, Oklahoma, a 70-pound pit bull did him one better. He served notice on all the world that he was fully prepared to navigate himself, and that should give special pause to Michael Vick, should he ever again become a pedestrian.
Joe D'Plummer was washing his motorcar at a commercial car wash while his dog waited patiently inside the vehicle. For whatever reason, the dog suddenly jumped on the dash, and the car somehow was shifted into reverse. As the automobile backed out of the car wash bay, the dog stood guard over the steering wheel and seemed to be in total control as he looped out onto the highway and circled back to a safe stop at an automated car wash lane.
Pryor police officer Brent Crittenden reported that the vehicle was impounded because neither the driver nor the owner could provide proof of insurance. Because the dog was properly registered with the City of Pryor however, he was not taken into custody and Joe was allowed to walk the pooch home. A court date has not been set.
The dog's name, you ask? Would you believe Dale Earnhart?
