I have no idea how this pug fell in the toilet, or why. (SLYT) (Hideous laughter in audio track)

And dog people are always telling me how smart dogs are. At least a cat would have been able to get itself out - in the unlikely event it had been dumb enough to fall in in the first place.

Well, true, but then you would have the problem of getting the blood out of everything. I speak from some experience here.

Just another reason for men to put the seat up!!!

There are at least three things wrong with this statement, and the exclamation marks only count as one.

"Pug"? This is a typo for "plug", no? A pioneering live plug.
Their front may be adorable and smart, but that clearly doesn't apply to their other end.

(it always strikes me that dogs can act genuinely embarrassed. They're sweet that way. A cat would probably come up with a plan of how to eat Laughing Guy in his sleep)

You're alone in the bathroom when you come across a pug stuck in the toilet. You film it, letting it's sweet face stare up at you in confusion. You see it wants dry hindquarters, but you're not helping it. Why aren't you helping it?

Maybe it's just the camera shake, but that dog looks like it's actually shivering to me. Also, I don't believe a dog that small could "fall" into that toilet. I doubt it has enough strength or length in it's back legs to get up that high.

Asshole.

I've fallen into things and on ice and tripped. I therefore am dumb. So is the cat who tries chasing things on a computer screen. Therefore cats are dumb. Siamese are mean, therefore all cats are mean. Herding dogs can be trained to herd sheep, therefore so can all dogs?

Cats I take it, have never fallen or gotten themselves in situations they have difficulty getting out of? I suppose the climbing up something and not being able to get down it is a complete myth but if not, does this mean cats are stupid?

Every time I've made that assumption about my parents' tiny dog, I've been proven wrong. I have no doubts that a pug could get into that toilet somehow.

So, just thinking here... what if stupid no-nose dog fell in during the night? What if the lights were off? What if laughing guy got up to , well, you know... and sat down, and... I don't know, would he finish and flush BEFORE the dog castrated him, or not?

It's not mentioned in this video, but I checked out one of the related vids and there's a note that Maggie the pug is a rescue dog with no tail and a permanently dislocated forelimb. That's probably why she couldn't pull herself out.

Here's the video with the note. On the less-sad side, you get to watch Maggie scare herself by farting.

posted by Decimask at 3:06 PM on December 10, 2010


She's a rescue dog who needs further rescuing from her new owners, not the toilet.

also if my dog fell in the toilet and couldn't get out* i would for sure, 100% document the shit out of it before coming to his aid. just like if one of my friends got stuck on the can somehow. we've got that sort of relationship.
