Congratulations to the PR team at Scottish Water on the widespread media coverage achieved with their story about a goldfish being rescued from the sewers.
The lucky fish suffered the indignity of being flushed down someone’s toilet, but because of heavy rain managed to survive in the sewers – until it was spotted and rescued by a sharp-eyed worked at a sewage treatment plant.
All of which reminds me of how I saved my own pet when it was facing a trip down the sewer.
Lola the goldfish was actually bought as a photographic “body double” for a fish which had been revived by firefighers after a house blaze. When press agency photographers were fnished with the critter, it’s future seemed bleak.
Until I stepped in and saved it – and now make sure it is the best-looked after (and fattest) goldfish in all of Scottish PR.
