Dogs “Drive” Away With Owner’s Pontiac Vibe…But The BIG Question Is…

http://www.motorauthority.com, Road-Test.orgWere they driving faster than the average Vibe owner? Answer: Probably.

A pair of dogs decided to go for a bit of a joy ride when their Yarmouth, Nova Scotia owner walked away from a car they were in. A few onlookers noticed a Pontiac Vibe slowly rolling out into traffic, and saw not human drivers at the helm but rather canine controllers. One onlooker managed to snap a picture of the pups as they rolled past.

According to CBCNews, the owner accidentally left the car in neutral and walked away for a moment. Gravity took hold, and the car began to slowly roll away.

Man’s Best Friend, Shouldn’t He Wear A Seatbelt Too? – Road Test And Beyond

Road Test And Beyond… Special Report

Every day, people all over the world load their dogs into their vehicles. The trip could be short, or long, to the vet or off to the local park for a bit of exercise. People take their dogs everywhere – they visit friends, and they visit the dogs’ friends too.
