Bad dog, Buster! Yep, it happened to Jason Tovey, 24-year-old halfback for the Cardiff Blues, a Welsh Rugby Union team. He was all packed to head off to France to play for Cardiff against Toulon in their Heineken Cup game on Saturday, but found that his dog Buster had chewed up his passport. BBC Sports:
“It’s a bit like the old schoolboy excuse that the dog ate my homework,” he said.
The outside half’s Labrador puppy Buster had even left his teeth marks on the passport, which now has gaping holes in it. “Buster is always chewing things but usually it’s my sock and shoes,” said Tovey.
“As soon as I saw the passport I thought I’d never get through airport security with it.
Tovey will have to pay £103 for a new passport, but won’t get it in time to make Saturday’s match.
Obviously the dog didn’t want to be left home alone. Well played, Buster. Well played.
