Dog gets head stuck in drainage cinder block

 Dogs can be curious, mischievous, playful or all of the above, and that is probably what led to one valley dog's predicament, she ended up stuck inside a cinder block.

Talk about a rough day! A stroll out to the back yard left the dog stuck and no wiggle room to escape.

"She's never done it before, she's three but never done it," said Sherry Lynn Carnett.

Her name is Winnie, named after Winnie the Pooh, the cartoon bear who was always getting his head stuck in a honey jar.

"She lives up to her name, and one day she got her head stuck in the drainage brick on the side of the house... she always has to investigate the backyard and 15 minutes later my neighbor says do you know your dog's head is stuck in the fence," she said.

So how do you deal with a situation like this?

"My neighbor Mark came over and he was chiseling at it and he made a dent, we tried pushing her back through and couldn't. Tried soaping her up and pushing her back through, couldn't. We had to call the fire department to get them to chip the brick out and get her head out. Surprisingly when they showed up they said they do it once a week," said Carnett.

Once freed Winnie was fine. She just shook it off, though there is one thing that has changed in Winnie's behavior since the incident. 

"She doesn't go back down that side of the fence anymore," she said.
