    RSPCA inspectors scale church roof to rescue stranded dog... only to discover it was cuddly toy

    Animal rescuers rushed to the aid of a dog stranded on a roof - only to find a 4ft cuddly toy.
    Callers reported seeing the stranded pooch on a church roof and feared it was dead when they realised it wasn't moving.
    RSPCA inspector Nigel Duguid clambered up to discover the stricken "dog" in Port Talbot, South Wales, was a lifelike toy.
    He said: "I must admit it was such a relief. I had been preparing myself for what could have been an extremely distressing and difficult job, and then I realised that it wasn't a dog at all! "
    The woof on the roof drama started when a caller spotted the Great Dane-style toy on top of a flat roof of the Elim Pentecostal Church.
    The RSPCA inspector rigged up a ladder to reach the pooch - and then carefully took it away in his van.
    Insp Duguid said: "We get calls to all sorts of things - all animals of all shapes and sizes and species.

    "But in my 37 years as an RSPCA inspector I have never been called to rescue a cuddly toy before!"
    The RSPCA receives more than 1.1 million calls to its 24-hour emergency hotline each year.
    But Inspector Duguid welcome that some of the calls provide some light relief from distressing complaints of cruelty.

    I used to have a job at a calendar factory.
    I got the sack because
    I took a couple of days off.

    Dogs are better than women as companions. It hurts more when a dog leaves too soon.
