Believe it or not, this is the second time in the past few years that I’ve posted a story about a dog that shot his owner by stepping on his shotgun.

Anyway, here’s the lastet, from the San Francisco Chronicle:

One California hunting dog apparently takes the term a bit too literally. . . .

The Merced County Sheriff’s Department says [a] man and a partner had been hunting near Highway 152 in the Los Banos area Saturday. The man set down his shotgun to retrieve some duck decoys and his female Labrador retriever stepped on it, causing the safety to disengage and the gun to fire, sending a shot into the hunter’s upper back.
