" Dog Pee Caused Mass Blackout

Shocked Gary Davies saw his dog erupt in flames — after it peed on a live power cable.

Bailey the Staffordshire bull terrier also cut power to 148 homes by cocking a leg against a faulty pylon.

Gary, 42, said: “There was an almighty explosion and the whole street lit up. I turned round and the dog was on fire.”

Power was off for five hours in Middlestone Moor, Co Durham. "

If this had happened to my dog, I would have been shocked.
I don't have a dog anylonger, but I loved it.

My God. Now that I think about it, this night I made a very strange dream: I saw a dog burnt trapped in woods! I remember very well, now, I have this clear image of that dog, almost intact outside, but completely burnt inside! I didn't know at all about that New in Middlestone Moor. Is there a connection?

I am sorry, Dreams Like that are sometimes very disturbing, and sometimes confusing.

According to the "Mythbusters" TV programme the story of men being electrocuted by urinating on the live rail is apocryphal. The stream of pee breaks up into seperate droplets after approx 25cm so there is not a connection to the electricity, (unless you are Verne Troyer). Apparently Bailey's anatomy was closer than 25cm.

" Troyer also appeared on VH1's 4th of season of The Surreal Life. Troyer's participation in the show received much media attention when he became drunk and urinated on the carpet. "

If Bailey wasn't neutered before this incident, he probably is now  :)

Nope, don't have a doggie door.  Too many other critters around that could get in.  Squirrels, cats, small children, racoons, GATORS, snakes.  I let the stupid dogs out about every hour, but noooooo, he has to go weewee inside.  At least it's on the tile and not the carpet.

Sometimes dogs are like that CAroline.. Mine would go out anytime unless it was raining.. Then he was afraid to get little delicate toes wet so he would go on the porch or linolium.. It got to where I had to run him off the porch.. He hated me for it!!

 few simple solutions for you Mam when doggies go out so that you can get a doggy flap....Remember !..you are a girly which means you would have not thought about these ! (lol)

1: give the doggies cell phones so that they an buzz you to let them in or out

2: place a sign outside of the door saying ' Residents only '

3: Set up a paw-print entry system

4: Post a guard by the doggy flap and gives ID passes to your doggies

5: Install a doggy urinal in your bathroom

6: Train doggies to clean up with mop, disinfectant and then to sterilize afterwards so that further training will enable them to make you tea and coffee

...I could go on !!!...don't worry as, I said...you are a girly and are not expected to think of such things !!

You can get magnetically activated cat flaps (I assume the same would work for dogs) where the cat wears a magnetic collar that releases the door and allows your cat through, but will not allow through anything that does not have a magnetic collar (ofcourse, it does not guarantee that as your pet enters, another animal will not sneak in alongside, but it would have to be careful timing, and not a likely event).

I must admit, I did not know those existed.  We are going to be replacing the door soon (I hope)  It was damaged by a fire several years ago and should've been replaced then, but....

I'll have to look into getting one of those.  Sounds promising, although I think the dog does it just to be a brat.  He wants to show me who's the boss.

Somehow I missed this.  

Thank you so much for thinking up those great ideas for me, seeing as how I'm just a girlie.  LOL  Love all of those ideas, especially #5.  I wish that one really were a possibility.  His favorite place to go is on the tile floor, right in front of the toilet.

Thanks again for the suggestions.  I will pass them along to stud muffin.

Carolyn

ps - is it just a little pathetic that I've spent so much time talking about my doggies bathroom habits?

HUGS THE CAROLYN !!!



I knew about the magnetic collars too...me me me me me....yes i did !!....the only downside is that raccoons and critters will realise this and pretend to be sexy hitchhikers which doggies will be unable to restrain themselves and will pick them up !!
