Dog-gone it, my truck's gone. Police say Charles McCowan parked his pickup truck in front of an Azusa mini-mart Wednesday, leaving his 80-pound Boxer named Max in the passenger seat.
When he came out, the truck and Max were gone.
McCowan called police, assuming it had been stolen.
When officers arrived, they found the truck across the street in a
fast-food parking lot, but had no idea how it got there.
In security video shown Thursday on KCAL TV, the truck can be seen rolling backward out of the store lot, across the street, threading its way through traffic and out of view.
Police say after McCowan left the truck, Max knocked the vehicle out of gear and sent it rolling backward.
Max's driving skills are better than your average dog.
Both he and the truck emerged without a scratch.
