Ever since Bo was a pup he’s tried to tell us baths were bad, and he would do anything to try and stop us from giving him one. Normally he got a bath after an outside romp which left him covered in goo, nothing was going to persuade us from giving him a good cleaning. However, I just read the following article and realized maybe Bo was right, baths are dangerous.

LONDON – A British pup had a narrow flush with disaster after his 4-year-old master decided to give him a bath in the toilet. Daniel Blair was quoted as telling Britain’s Daily Mirror tabloid that he tried to clean the muddy 1-week-old cocker spaniel because he was muddy, and he flushed him down the drain.

His mother Alison was quoted as saying she thought the dog was dead, but a drainage firm was able to locate the beleaguered animal in a pipe 20 yards away from the house using specialist camera gear.

Here’s video of the trapped puppy taken by Dyno-Rod’s, the drainage firm who saved him.
