Dashie, you be careful offering that coffee cake for injuries. Everyone in my family is willing to break their own limbs for that stuff!! It's sinful!!
The sink and rottie story is nothing. I had a mastiff once that had a litter of pups. She refused to care for them so I took them to the vet to make sure they were okay. He gave them a clean bill of health so I took them home and put them in my bedroom in a big container with a super soft fuzzy blankie to keep them warm, and off I went to the pet store to get milk replacer for them.
I came home, got out of the car, and heard the fire alarm in my house going off. Of course panic immediately sets in and I run to the door, yank it open and am immediately hit in the feet by water.
Long story short, she'd had 4 more puppies while I was gone - eventually had 14 total - and decided she wanted her kids. She couldn't get my bedroom door open to get in to them, but the kid's bathroom door was open. Their bathroom backed up to the master bathroom which was off the master bedroom where the puppies were.
So, she chewed a hole in the wall by the kids toilet big enough to fit a 182 pound mastiff and crawled through. In doing so she broke the water line going to the toilet which shot water into the hallway at the ceiling. It was the perfect angle to hit the fire alarm which was electric, so it short circuited and went off. She then broke down my bathroom door to gain access to the bedroom and one by one pulled her puppies out, carried them to my closet and snuggled up with them.
In the meantime the water is still flowing like crazy in the house. Lucikly it ran down the hall away from the bedrooms, into the living room and down the step into the den. The den had 3 inches of water standing in there when I got home.
The best part was calling the cleaning people and telling them I had all that water standing in there. They asked if we'd had a fire and I told them no, that my dog broke a water line. They kind of laughed at me, not believing a dog could do that. Until they showed up at the house and 182 pounds of mastiff flesh greeted them at the door. They were believers instantly!
