My GSD boy would jump into the driver seat the minute I got up. I have a photo of him sitting there as if he were ready to drive. So when I heard this story first I laughed and then I thought, it can happen!

Florida authorities responded to a vehicle spinning in reverse around a Port St. Lucie suburban cul-de-sac and found a a lone occupant inside: a black labrador retriever named Max.

Police said the dog’s owner had stepped away from the running car and the pet then knocked it into reverse. One neighbor, Anne Sabol, said she watched as the car took out a mailbox and a trash can.

Police stopped the joyride by punching a passcode into the driver’s door. No one was hurt. And Max was in high spirits after the rescue, police said he “jumped out of the car, wagging his tail”. I am so laughing right now!! ~grace
