Hugo is devoted to Mr. Bunny, his beloved squeaky toy. So when it came time for Mr. Bunny to get a wash, he was not happy about it. His human, Ursula Aitchison, learned just how unhappy he was when she heard a noise coming from the laundry room and spotted the 5-year-old Golden Retriever trying to free his toy from the washing machine!
Hugo was trying to open the machine’s handle by chewing on it. Worried that Hugo might succeed in in pulling open the washing machine door, she did manage to coax him away. But the story has a happy ending as Hugo was reunited with Mr. Bunny shortly after.
