Mug Shot: Toby M.
I know we've previously discussed the pitifully feeble Seattle Chihuahua…
But apparently the Chihuahua à la Spokane is a different breed altogether.
These pint-sized powerhouses will not be stepped on, pushed around, or kicked to the curb.
They take matters (and steering wheels) into their own hands… er….paws.
Case in point —
Tabitha O. was waiting for the light to change at a Spokane intersection, when a car came “out of nowhere” and rammed into her.
“I looked up, and there was no one in the car — just a little dog up on the steering wheel peeking over looking at me,” she said. "I was shocked. I didn't know if I was crazy or if this little dog had taken a joy ride."
Clearly, Tabitha was perfectly sane.
The little joy-riding dog was Toby M. who was booked under suspicion of driving without a license.
At the station he did indeed produce a valid pet license.
Apparently, he was unaware that his nifty little jingle tag did not, in fact, come with driving privileges.
He was let go with a warning.
PROMPT: Writing time flies when you anthropomorphize! Pick your critter — canines with cars, cows with guns, cats with Facebook privileges, or some such — and go hog wild today!
