A shaggy dog story

The emergency dispatcher must have done a double-take at this one: The frantic caller said that a vehicle carrying two dogs — and no humans — had just gone through an intersection and struck a tree.

Were the pooches behind the wheel? Were they escapees from some pound making a getaway? Robbers on the lam after knocking over a butcher shop?

None of the above, reports the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

The dogs were passengers in the car. Their owner parked her car at South Richmond convenience store and apparently didn’t put the brake on.

The car rolled across a parking lot, through an intersection and hit a tree. When cops arrived, the dogs were OK, which was good news for the owner. More good news: The cops won’t be filing any charges against her.
