Insurance job?

Well thought out, genius. How does the dog lodge an insurance claim?

Sounds like someone is barking up the wrong tree…

My dog, a beautiful Cavalier King Charles Spaniel almost brought our 2 storey house down.
Managed to jump on the accelerator as I slowed down to drive into our garage and the car shot forward and hit the centre pillar. Roller doors crashed onto the car bonnet!
When I rang the NRMA the operator said “Who was driving?” When I replied ‘The dog”, she nearly died laughing.
They paid the $5000 repair bill 🙂

Are you serious? What retard does not control their dog in the car? In fact they are supposed to be restrained are they not? Do you star in the “parking style” pics as well?

Yep that’s sorta what my partner said! And yep that’s me in ALL the parking style pics (we have dozens of cars).
Actually the dog jumped in the car when I stopped on the driveway to pick him up. He was running up towards the slowly moving car in our gated back yard and I was terrified he would get run over. Opened the door of the stopped car, called his name and like a good dog jumped on my lap but accidentally slid off on to the accelerator.
You are right Poetix. He’s a killer and because of his killer instincts he wears a muzzle, a massive chain around his neck and is tethered to the seat belt when he is allowed in the car. A sign on our gate says “Beware of the killer dog”. Haven’t been burgled once.

You still have not told us how the dog lodged the insurance claim yet. Genius.

Yeah, have to agree with this – Nobody would’ve been laughing had you hit and killed/injured a pedestrian.

I’ve always thought those dogs were too cute, with their long hair and constant tail wagging. All the time, they’ve been planning to kill us.
