Trigger-happy dog shoots owner
A woman is recovering after being shot in the foot – by her dog. And the dog’s name? Trigger!
Indiana conservation officer Jonathon Boyd says 25-year-old Allie Carter, of Avilla, laid her 12-bore shotgun on the ground without the safety on during a waterfowl hunt at a fish and wildlife area.
Jonathon told Fox 26 News that the chocolate Labrador retriever stepped on top of the shotgun and pressed the trigger.
The woman was shot in the left foot at point-blank range, suffering injuries to her foot and toes. She was treated at two hospitals and released.

Jan has dogs in stitches
A 52-year-old woman from Sunderland has knitted more than 300 sweaters for greyhounds, spending more than 4,000 hours on the task.
Jan Brown told the Mirror she does it because she likes it and because the dogs need it. “I can’t think of anything I would rather do than knit woolly clothing for dogs. Making coats and jumpers for these dogs saves the rescue homes a lot of money that can be better spent saving more dogs off the streets and feeding them.”
“I stitch a small heart on the back of my blanket coats in honour of the dogs who don’t make it to rescue,” she said.
