Breed: Chihuahua or Chihuahua mix
Encountered: At a stoplight in Tillamook, Oregon
Backstory: I’m not sure what this little dog was so upset about, but when I pulled up alongside, he or she barked away — right up until the light turned green.

An Oregon man is recovering from being accidentally shot over the weekend when his dog jumped into a boat and set off a shotgun.
Matthew Marcum was shot in the legs and buttocks on Tillamook Bay Saturday. His own 12-gauge shotgun fired when his 3-year-old yellow Lab, Drake, jumped into his boat, according to Oregon State Police.
Marcum’s father, Henry Markum, confirmed that the dog set off the 12-gauge, but said neither he nor Matthew are mad at their pet. He added that Drake is a good dog and the shooting is “just one of those things.”
