A four-year old boy from England was gifted a one week old puppy. The cute little Cocker Spaniel is named “Dino,” after the man who rescued him from a drainage ditch a short distance from the owner’s house.
It all started after a terrific lunch for two – a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and puppy chow. As mom left the room, the two new friends were happily eating and sniffing at each other.
“Mommy Mommy!” the boy’s mother noticed the inflection of an emergency. Her son also has two turtles, a lizard, and a cat, all of whom have found the inside of the loo at one time or another for various reasons unknown to adults.
“The puppy just went down the toilet as I was washing his paws!”
The puppy was nowhere to be found even when mom opened the manhole cover out in front of the house. The boy made puppy whine sounds down in the sewer pipe, which echoed in the tube much like Moaning Myrtle from the Harry Potter Series, hoping for a response.
None was forthcoming.
Alarmed, the mother called the fire department. The video below shows Dino’s predicament (you can view more videos at www.reuters.com):
