The Woodlands fire department in Texas was called to a home where a small dog went exploring in the bathroom and ended up wedged behind the toilet.

The department said firefighters ended up having to remove sheetrock from the wall to bring the lavatory retriever, named Tippy, back to his owners.

Firefighters said there were no injuries from Tippy's toilet trial.

A public works crew in Chino Hills, Calif., found an engagement ring that had been flushed down the toilet by its owner's young son 14 months earlier.

Jana Glass said her 5-year-old son flushed the ring in March 2022, and despite the best efforts of her now-husband, John, a pair of plumbers and public works employees, the ring was not recovered.

Fourteen months later, a Chino Hills Public Works crew was performing sewer maintenance in the neighborhood when workers spotted something shiny among the sewage -- a literal diamond in the rough.

Crew members recalled hearing the tale of the couple's lost ring and returned it to the family after a thorough cleaning.

John Glass said the family can laugh about it now, and he looks forward to telling the story of the flushed ring someday at his stepson's wedding.
