In Britain, a four year old flushed his puppy down the toilet accidently while trying to give it a bath. The one week old cocker spaniel got muddy while playing in the garden, so the little boy thought he needed a bath to clean up.
The puppy got stuck in the wastepipe for four hours. Firefighters and animal welfare officers were called to the house to help the puppy, but they couldn’t get to it. The mother finally called a plumber who found the puppy upside down in a pipe about 20 meters from the house in London.
The plumber used a long rod to push the puppy to the nearest manhole where he could safely be removed. Amazingly, the puppy survived and was named Dyno after the plumbing company that rescued him. The little boy blamed his twin brother for getting Dyno dirty in the first place, but promised he would never flush him down the toilet again.
