Dog Drives Owner’s Car Into River

CharlieCharlie is one mischievous dog. He knocked his owner’s car out of gear and drove it into a river in Idaho. Charlie must have been aching for a joyride.

Charlie’s owner had just returned home from picking up a pizza. When he was walking into his house, the black lab jumped through an open car window. When the car started going downhill, Charlie jumped out of the car.

“He doesn’t know what he did,” said Mark Ewing (Charlie’s owner), who watched as his Chevy Impala sank in the river.

“He somehow got the car into neutral,” Ewing said. “My car just went boom, down an incline and into the drink.”

“There’s nothing weirder than looking at your car cruising down your driveway when you’re not in it and seeing your dog jump out and then watching your car go splash,” Ewing said.

More about Charlie’s daring ride after the jump.


For Ewing, things became more bizarre when the tow truck driver came.

Before the driver dove into the water to hook the car up to his tow truck, he asked Ewing to hold his dentures.

Said Ewing, “My car’s in the drink, I’ve got dentures in my hand and this guy – Keith from Clyde’s Towing – goes swimming.”

No more driving for you Charlie until you turn 16.
