Dog Accused Of Shooting Owner

Yes! You read that headline right. Here's the story:

A Great Dane in Memphis is in the doghouse. Investigators say King George apparently got so excited when friends came to pay a visit to his owner, that he knocked a small caliber handgun off a table Tuesday.

The gun went off, shooting King George’s owner in the back. The owner was taken to a nearby hospital in critical condition. He is expected to recover.

Does it beg the question, 'why did the owner have a loaded gun out on the table?'

Maybe the dog is not that one that should be under investigation. Just a thought.

I agree with Sandra. Why was a loaded gun sitting out on a table like that, apparently with the safety clicked off?

That's just careless and certainly not the dog's fault.
