We’ve heard of blaming the dog for eating homework or passing gas.

But now, one 25-year-old Florida man has claimed that his pooch accidentally shot his sleeping girlfriend in the leg on Tuesday night.

Police say Brian Murphy told them that the accident happened after his dog Diesel woke him up, so he let him outside.

When they came back into the house, the bedroom was dark, and Murphy said that Diesel “jumped up on the nightstand, where his gun was sitting, and it went off,” according to ActionNewsJax.

Murphy said he saw a flash and then heard a bang. His girlfriend, Summer Miracle, awoke to a throbbing pain in her right leg — and found that she had been hit by a bullet. She later told police that she did not know how she was shot.

Murphy put a towel around his girlfriend’s bleeding leg and called the cops just before 11:30 P.M. Miracle was taken to the hospital and was treated for non life-threatening injuries.

No word on whether she believes Murphy’s story or not.
