Flushed Puppy Survives Sewer Run

by Mary Haight on June 16, 2009

Alison, a 40-year-old mother of 7, and no that is not a typo, suddenly noticed that their week-old Cocker Spaniel puppy was missing. She looked everywhere and became frantic–a state I would think was very nearly permanent given the 7 children–asking the kids if they had the dog somewhere. The twins confessed they had played with the puppy outside and he had gotten muddy so they decided to wash him off.  The toilet was the bright idea, and one of them flushed.

Friends, family and then the fire department and the RSPCA came to the rescue, but had no luck.  Alison could hear the puppy whimpering, and she knew they would have to do something fast, as hours had already passed.  Then she thought to call the Middlesex England version of Roto Rooter, Dyno-Rod, which used their cameras to locate the pup and determine how they might safely extract him. The rest of the story is on the video. Dyno, the puppy’s new name, is fine and back home after spending a night at the vets.
