    Default Puppy rescued from teapot

    Gisborne Herald
    THANKS: Puppy shares some love with owner Buchanan Thomas, after its head became wedged in the porcelain teapot pictured in the foreground.

    A tiny puppy was freed by four Gisborne firefighters after its head became wedged in a teapot.
    The bull-mastiff pup, about 10 weeks old, suffered a small nick to its nose.
    A fire truck raced to the scene at about 9.45am yesterday, initially believing a person had become trapped.
    Gisborne senior station officer Mike Milne said the crew had struggled to envisage the situation.
    "I thought that must be some teapot, but they'd be able to breathe through the spout anyway."
    The crew was met by a worried looking couple standing at the gate of their home. They were holding the dog, its head stuck inside the old porcelain teapot.
    With a sledgehammer resting against it, Mr Milne tapped the teapot a few times with an engineer's hammer, breaking it apart.
    "He was free in a minute and off on his next adventure. He was as happy as anything. When we were leaving I heard the owners saying they'd be calling him Teapot."
    Mr Milne said he regularly went out to help animals in danger – from cats trapped in walls to dogs down cliffs. He said cats stuck up trees were "a real pain in the neck".
    "Often we're not even needed because they can come down."

    Glad the cute doggie is all right, but these guys don't have a hammer in their home? This could have been handled with a well-placed smash instead of calling the damn fire department.

    my first dog was huge, he got his head caught in a cable roller thingy made of wood and bless their hearts the fire department got him out with the aid of a saw. Back then firemen didn't mind going up trees to get a cat or helping out a dog now and again....... come to think of it they still rescue pets. gotta love firemen/ladies.

    I thought the fire department loved rescuing animals, because it's great practice. Animals usually get into the same tight spots children do. Great oppurtunity for any n00bs to learn how it's done.
