Some of you might think you’re a lucky son-of-a-gun. Maybe you’ve won the lottery. Maybe you have the job of your dreams. Maybe you just have a hot spouse. No matter how lucky you think you are, I have news for you. You will never be as lucky as this adorable, adorable dog.

Mitsubishi Lancer Dog Jump

This is one lucky dog

The black and white pup—let’s call him Lance—was just taking his daily stroll when something unthinkable happened. Little did Lance know, but he was actually strolling along a rally car racetrack. A rally car racetrack that just happened to be in use.

In fact, Lance found himself walking down the live track of the Rally De Santa Cruz in Bolivia this past weekend. Even though he didn’t know this at first, he soon found out in the most horrifying way possible—by almost losing his life.

As Lance rounded a curve during his midday stroll, he was almost killed by an oncoming Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. The Mitsubishi, luckily, spared his life as it passed overhead on a jump.


It was a close call but thankfully, the Evo took that jump faster than the dog could run. Talk about pure luck.

Let’s get a better look at how close Lance came to death.

I’m not sure about you guys, but if I was that dog I would have been pooping myself with fear.

There’s no word as to whether or not Lance was ever captured by the security dude chasing him, but hopefully he’s a-okay.
