Just because dogs aren't eligible for a drivers license doesn't mean they don't want to drive.

According to NBC Washington, the owner of a Yorkshire terrier put his dog in his Chevy Silverado after it encountered another canine near Branch Lake in Maine

While in the truck, the terrier wasn't content to sit still and bumped the pickup into gear while his owner was busy talking to the other dog's owner. According to police, the truck rolled 75 feet into the lake.


A family friend swam out to save the half-submerged truck, which was later deemed a total loss. The terrier was unharmed.
