Dog drives car into store

By Amanda Jackson CNN

(CNN) -- Yes, you read that right. Man's best friend took a car for a short joyride on Friday.

Two pups were left alone in a car while their owner ran into a grocery store in Wayne, West Virginia. The woman left the car running so the dogs could stay cool, but they had other plans.

Once she was in the store, the dogs somehow switched the car into gear and went rolling straight for the store.

The joyride didn't last long. The car came to a halt when it rolled into a concrete pillar. Shoppers ran to the runaway car to make sure everyone was all right, only to find a dog in the driver's seat.

Witnesses told CNN affiliate WSAZ the scene played out like a cartoon. On Monday, surveillance video of the incident was released.

Since the dogs weren't available for comment, it's unclear how their cruise came about.

Both the car and the store had minimal damage and no charges have been filed against the woman.

The dogs got home safely with a human behind the wheel.
