Twelve-week-old German shepherd puppy Rosie is clumsy and not entirely in control of her faculties: She accidentally "drove" her owner's car into a pond near Boston this weekend.
Police, too, were confounded by the 911 call Costello made asking for help. "I've never heard of a puppy driving a car into a pond," Officer Robert Quirk of the Canton police said.
Frightened, Rosie retreated to the back seat of the car, where Costello and a kind stranger in the park that day were able to rescue her before the car was submerged in the pond.
The car, which is actually Costello's daughter's, is totaled.
