In Northhold London, a puppy was accidently flushed down the toilet. Daniel Blair, the cocker spaniel's young owner, decided the puppy needed a bath after playing in the yard so he put the put in the toilet and gave it a wash. The puppy got stuck in the waste pipe for 4 hours. Plumbers rescued the pup who is reportedly doing fine.
I've covered this topic before that puppies should be monitored with their toddlers/young kids, especially in the case noted above.
It is important that when a new puppy is introduced to the home, proper care and education and supervision is required. A puppy is another member of the family, not a toy.
Accidents happen and although both puppy and child were fine, there have been instances that out of defense and accident, animals have attacked children.
