In other news, a cheeky dog crept out of his home while his owner was taking out the bins and went on a bus adventure to sunny Rhyl.
Rocco, a six-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier must have fancied a day at the beach to cool off in the water, so grabbed his chance when his owner Jake Channon was taking out the bins at their home in Rhuddlan on Tuesday.
Unbelievable alien-looking sea creatures caught by fisherman in his trawler
Jake hadn't realised that Rocco had followed him outside and jumped on the 51 Arriva bus on Vicarage Lane which was heading to the North Wales seaside resort, three miles down the road, NorthWalesLive reports.
But around 20 minutes later, as he was scrolling through his Facebook feed, he noticed a post about a Staffie on a bus without his owner.
Initially, he didn't think the dog belonged to him and it wasn't until Rocco didn't respond to his calls that he realised he was missing.
Jake said: "I was taking the bin bags out just after his walk in the park and I came back in not knowing he’d followed me.
"I walked back into the house and shut the door, as you do.
"About 20 minutes later I’m scrolling through Facebook and I see a post about a dog on a bus going to Rhyl on its own.
"I thought it was funny so I showed it to my girlfriend saying it looks like Rocco."
He went on: "I shouted him but he didn't respond so I looked for him and then I realised that it WAS my dog on the bus!"
