The dog.  Man’s best friend has been the scapegoat for many of our follies, from eating our homework to the odd smell coming from dad's chair after dinner.  But blaming your dog for shooting your girlfriend?  That's what a Jacksonville man told police Tuesday night after police responded to the gunshot.  They arrive to find Summer Miracle with a gunshot wound in her right leg with her boyfriend, Brian Murphy, applying pressure until paramedics arrived.  According to the police report, Summer was asleep in the bedroom when Brian let the couple's dog, Diesel, outside.  When diesel returned, Brain turned off the bedroom light and was preparing to go to bed.  Diesel walked into the dark room when Brain said he saw a flash of light and heard a bang.  Brain believes "Diesel jumped up on the night stand where his gun was sitting and it went off shooting Summer in the right leg." Summer was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
