(This isn't Tassey, the dog in question.) (Shutterstock) (Newser) – A Florida man was taken to the hospital yesterday after his dog ran him over with the man's own pickup truck. Christopher Bishop, 43, made the mistake of putting his Ford F-150 in neutral as he got out to check for oil leaks, the St. Petersburg Times reports. As he checked under the front, Tassey leapt into the front seat and knocked the truck into gear. The truck rolled over the left side of Bishop’s body. He managed to get up and get into the truck to stop it. After several hours of intense pain, he called an ambulance and was taken from his home to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. He said he’d waited so long because he doesn’t like doctors.
