Dogs Gone Wild

Oscar, a Lawrence, Mass., K-9, accidentally fired a gun into an occupied home during a police chase in March. He’d pawed the trigger while digging into snow where a fleeing suspect had tossed his gun. (No one was injured.) In March, a dog left inside an otherwise unattended, engine-running car accidentally kicked it into gear and pinned an unidentified pedestrian, knocking him unconscious. He was taken to a York, Pa., hospital and revived. Gregory Lanier, 35, driving his dog in a truck in Sebring, Fla., in February, was shot in the leg, though not seriously hurt, when the dog stepped on a .380 caliber pistol. o
