Every time I go in our basement I check our sump Pump (live at the bottom of a hill). I go over to the Sump Pump tube, give it a little shake and it kicks in.
My dog (tri) is always with me when I'm home and has picked up on the behavior, so now every time we go downs stairs, he has to shake the Sump Pump so it goes off. He is so happy when he does it, so proud. It's his new mission in life. I have to video tape him!
The other day I was upstairs and hear the sump pump go off. It starts clunking and making a loud racket, like it has rocks in it.
My wife said thats what it sounds like upstairs when he does it!
