Canton, MA -
A Massachusetts man is blaming his dog for his car ending up in a pond.
He told police in Canton, Massachusetts his five-month-old German Shepherd, Rosie, got her leash tangled in the gear shift. When she was trying to break free, the puppy fell onto the driver's side floor and hit the accelerator, sending the car into the pond.
The master and his dog were both in the car as it floated about 30 yards offshore, before it sank.
A witness rushed into the pond to help get Rosie safely out after the driver had to untangle things to free himself.
