What are the chances, he just happened to have no insurance and no license.

I think God was sending him a pukey message... there's a reason Dog is God backwards.

What they didn't report is the dog saw a billboard promoting ObamaCare and he was worried he wasn't covered!

I guess the dog found his brownies in the car.

People that drive with their dogs anywhere near their laps drive me insane. Cant leave little precious alone for 20 minutes while you drive?? Now I'm puking too!

Reminds me of my garbageman days when I came upon a car in the ditch. I asked the man what happened and he said it was this new kitten that he just picked up and the thing was so friendly it was crawling up his shirt and got in his face. He couldn't see and drove into the ditch. He said he was so mad that if I didn't take the kitten he was going to kill it. Well, I didn't want that to happen so I did take it and the kitten rode around with me in the truck all day. I couldn't keep it either so I took it to the Humane Society for adoption by someone else that didn't mind friendly kittens. (Yes, a true story)

Now what kind of idiot drives around with his dog in his lap without a DL or insurance? Must be parentless, as his father forgot to kick his butt about ten years ago.

Yeah, this will keep the DFL busy for awhile "no dog puking while driving"! How well is that law about driving without a license and required insurance doing?

I hope the poor dog wasn't hurt.

Let this be a lesson to this young man:
1. Have a DL.
2. Have insurance.
3. Get a harness and back seat tether for your dog, and use it.

He's lucky he didn't hurt anyone. Whatever this accident cost him was cheap tuition.

First of all...It wasn't his dog. He was asked by a friend to bring the dog to their daughter's school for show and tell. So, he was just trying to do a favor for a friend.
Secondly...The owner of the dog didn't have a harness and he didn't have a back seat as this was a pick-up truck.
Lastly...We're just glad that both he and the dog are okay. He has definitely learned his lesson the hard way.
