    Charlie the Black Lab Drives Owner's Car Into River; Tow Druck Asks Owner to Hold Dentures


    <!--IE-->
    The Associated Press


    Bad dog. Charlie the black lab is in trouble after driving his owner's car into the Pend Oreille River. Owner Mark Ewing had just returned home from picking up a pizza Wednesday evening. As he walked to his home, Charlie jumped into the car through an open window, and apparently knocked the vehicle into gear.

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

    Wonder if there was any odor of alcohol on the dog? Could have been a DWI

    My 18-month-old dog Dakota is 1/2 black lab, 1/2 border collie, and I could so see him doing something like this, he is very smart and very hyper.

    Are there any pics online of this mixed breed? I'm in the market for a new puppy.

    Very nice. It reminds me of one of those frisbee dogs that can do crazy jumps. I bet that dog would look great in a bandana tied around its neck. Very cute.

    Beautiful dog. I have a black Lab (the real Opie) and I would not put something like this past her. I always say her enthusiasm for life is exhausting to be around. A border collie mix would probably do me in. lol

    Thanks so much, Dingo...he is a mess! We call him "Kotybear" sometimes b/c we think his face looks so much like a bear's face.

    LOL...thanks, Opie!! I think Dakota would flunk out of obedience school but he needs to go...

    By the way, if any of you haven't read "Marley and Me" by John Grogan, you MUST!!!!

    I have the book, but am afraid of the ending, as my Opie is not very young...
