Sunday was a doggone good day for one St. Louis dog-owner after firefighters rescued her puppy from a drainpipe. It happened at Union Blvd. and Enright Ave. in north city about 9:00 a.m.
Fire Department officials say the small grey puppy had slipped into a foot-wide drainage pipe that wasn't properly covered. The puppy's owner had been walking another dog on a leash, when it happened.
Firefighters lowered a noose 26 feet down and snagged the puppy, pulling it to freedom.
The puppy wasn't injured and was returned to its owner.
