As cute as Chihuahuas are, they make terrible drivers. Jason Martinez found that out the hard way recently when he left his car and his Chihuahua, Toby, for just a few minutes to go into a store in Spokane, Wash. Martinez had no reason to think his dog would use that short time to take a joy ride, but for some reason, the car started rolling down the street, the Associated Press reported.
While this was happening, Tabitha Ormaechea was stopped at a red light when Martinez’ car came out of nowhere and bumped into her car. “When I looked up, there was no one in the car, just a little dog up on the steering wheel peeking over looking at me,” Ormaechea told KREM-TV. “I was shocked, I didn’t know if I was crazy, or if this little dog had taken a joy ride.” Martinez was also surprised by what his dog. “I didn’t know what to think. Someone just ran into the store and asked if anyone has a gold car and I said, ‘Yeah, me. Why?’” he said, according to the Mirror, adding “[Toby] must have knocked it out of gear and the car rolled out.” No one was hurt by Toby the Chihuahua’s wild ride and the damage to Ormaechea’s car was minimal.
