According to Sanook, the owner of the dog turned out to be the driver of the pick-up truck. The owner said he’s a builder and his dog follows him to work regularly. He claimed that he never taught his dog to stand on the pick-up’s roof, and that it has habitually done that since it was 7 years old.
