We all know drunk driving kills.
Yet some people still get behind the wheel while impaired by alcohol or drugs.
Earlier this week, RCMP in Manitoba may have stepped in just in time to protect people, property and one very cute dog by pulling over a suspected drunk driver.
“This poor ‘ol boy was just along for the ride yesterday morning,” RCMP tweeted Monday.
The dog’s owner, the driver of the car, was stopped for impaired driving.
A 36-year-old man blew way over the legal limit and is now facing charges.
The dog was taken to animal control and is safe and sound.
And the driver’s vehicle was impounded.
This poor ‘ol boy was just along for the ride yesterday morning, when his owner was stopped for impaired driving on #MBHwy8. 36yo male driver was arrested, facing charges (he blew 230mg% 2x) & lodged in cells. Vehicle towed & impounded. Pup cared for by animal control. #rcmpmb pic.twitter.com/PPkH7uyDKK

People are applauding police — and are relieved for the pup.
Omg good boy alert doing his best to talk driver out of driving. Risked his life getting in car to try and convince driver to pull over. 12/10 doge.

I hope there’s a charge for endangering the life of a salient being. If there isn’t @BrianPallister bring Manitoba up to date with science and therefore legislature that views animals as more than property.

Pupper in the silent partner just doesn’t look right. Great work getting another boozer-driver off the road! 👏👏
