It's Raining Cats & (Sniffer) Dogs!

Chunk the sniffer dog was so keen when his handler lifted up a trap door during a search at a shisha bar raid, he dived straight in and fell ten feet through a false ceiling.
This blog loves happy endings, so I'm glad to report he suffered no ill effects. The owner of the shop wasn't so happy at the cleanup, though.
Floors and Doors owner Mack Shaikh said the incident left him with a mess and a bill of several hundreds of pounds following the black labrador’s leap into his shop from the Velvet shisha lounge in Weir Street
Now 46-year-old Mr Shaikh wants the police to compensate him for the damage, repairs and a lost day of trading to clear up.
Seems only right...
A Lancashire police spokesman: “Our understanding is the owner was spoken to and advised to contact the landlord about any damage. He seemed happy with that.
“We are not aware of a claim for compensation but we will consider any submitted.”
And so you should! You broke it (where 'it' belongs to an innocent third party), it should be considered that you bought it...

XX “I came in on Saturday to find tiles everywhere and a hole in the false ceiling which does not look good. XX


I have just spat my beer all over my keyboard again!

"Does not look good".

Is THAT was his ONLY concern?

Sorry, going to lie down after a long bout of laughter which has hurt my ribs. :-) :-) :-)
