Years ago my two younger cousins flushed NINE tiny nearly~newborn puppies down the toilet (pretty twisted huh?) luckily their mother realised instantly something was up when they came downstairs soaking wet. She called the fire brigade who were stationed just around the corner and miraculously they managed to save them all from the pipes. My cousins were then "rewarded" for their behaviour by having their photograph with the puppies splashed across the front page of the local newspaper. Somehow they made it sound like a heart warming story of survival. Kids!
