They're not to my British parents. But that's a different thread...Yes, but pants are underwear in British English. Indian English follows British English for the most part.

Anyway, I wouldn't say 'get my pants down' either. There comes a point where it doesn't matter whether or not something is grammatically correct. What's important is the way people actually talk.
People are not avoiding your question because they are being deliberately difficult. Got is a very complicated word which can be used in some contexts but not others, with different nuances of meaning.
"I got my pants down" is a grammatically correct sentence, but what is important is that it is not a natural thing to say in the context you have described.
I might say "I got my pants down" if I wanted to say something like "I succeeded in pulling my pants down after some difficulty". For example, I've put a pair of pants on which are much too small for me and the zip has broken (I'm presuming 'pants' means 'trousers' and not 'underwear', as soundshift kindly pointed out). I might say something like "It took me 20 minutes of trying, but I finally got my pants down (or off)". In normal circumstances, I would NOT say "I got my pants down to go to the toilet".
No, here the suggestion is that you got the dog down from the roof because you didn't want him to get wet. There is no suggestion here (in the use of 'got') that you faced any difficulty doing so.Ok, it is clear to me.
My dog was on the roof.I got him down from the roof because it was raining.
Even it is also suggesting I faced difficulty to bring my dog off the roof.
