In the dog house

Ray Johnson from Independent Insurance Services & Insure Green tells us about a splashing summer incident that left his Labrador in the dog house.

“I personally had a funny claim. When we were gardening during a hot summer’s day last year, we started to fill up the pond using a hosepipe. Whilst it was running we went inside and put some boxes in the loft.

“It was so hot in the loft, after a while so we came down to the kitchen for a cool drink, to find our Labrador, Toby, standing there with the end of the hosepipe in his mouth. As you can imagine water was gushing out all over the cabinets and he managed to create a new pond on the kitchen floor! We think he was trying to help out.”
