This Poor Dog Was Stuck In A Drainage Pipe For A Whole Week By Himself
Good boy, Edgar. Good boy.
This is Edgar, a four-year-old black retriever mix who is super happy to be back with his humans after being stuck in a drainage pipe for a week.
Edgar and his pal Oscar both disappeared one night, and the next day only Oscar came back. Their owners Juli and Sean Ryan told WKRC TV they have taken off together before, but they've always returned as a pair. This time was different.
The family put up missing posters, called animal control, and searched every night, but after a week they still had no word about Edgar's fate.
Then, one day, Sean Ryan was out for a walk in the neighbourhood when he thought he heard something familiar. Was that his dog? Ryan poked his head into a drainage pipe and that's when he saw his pal, stuck inside and barking for help.
Ryan called 911 and some firefighters came to cut away sections of the pipe.
"Somehow he managed to travel about 90 feet before another smaller pipe intersected the larger pipe and prevented him from going any farther," Ryan wrote on Facebook. "He had about another 20 [feet] to go."
