10 Strangest Things Eaten By Dogs
Dogs couldn’t have been bred to be a better “best friend” for man. After all they smell funny, they like to touch their nether regions, they hump like jackrabbits and they’ll eat almost anything. Since the first three traits would be inappropriate to show with pictures, we settled on digging up 10 bizarre pictures showing just how ravenous canine appetite can be…Also through the use of proper dog training things like this can be avoided!
1. Dog Eats Dog
Alfie took the saying “it’s a dog eat dog world” a little too seriously. The plastic figurine made him sick as a dog, forcing his owners to take him to the vet. One X-Ray and two hours of surgery later, Alfie made a full recovery after just barely avoiding doggie heaven.
2. A thong
Taffy, a Springer spaniel from Stafforshire , is a bit of a pervert. When he’s not busy eating socks (which may have roots in some obscure foot fetish) he has a thing for eating the thongs of his owner. The owners, in an effort to save face, say they are actually their “three year old son’s pants”. Right.
3. Engagment Ring
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend and, apparently, a bitch’s favorite snack. Dierdre Murphy Lofft was beside herself when her yellow gold engagement ring went missing… and she started to suspect Luciano (her pet Rottweiler). The X-Ray above tells the story.
American children are born with silver spoons in their mouth. This 2-year-old Saint Bernard must’ve been hungry when at birth, eating the spoon along with his medicine.
5. Electric Knife
After eating an electric knife blade, this dog should be recruited to the circus. Personally, I would pay good money to see a repeat. The kicker: the dog did no harm to himself and surgeons removed the blade without issue.
6. Another Dog Eats $750
Countless mounds of feces and pools of vomit later, and Pepper’s owners were able to collect $647 of the $750 the dog ate (pictured above). A quick run to the bank got them new bills, although one would imagine the bank teller wasn’t the happiest camper. Oh, and Pepper was just fine after nature finished running its course. I’m also sure that after they got it back they quickly spent some of it on puppy training classes!
7. Dog Eats 10 Pies from Pie Eating Contents
Like father like dog – a bichon fries named Charlie put away 20 pies and “damaged” 10 others which were sitting in the fridge of Dave Williams. Dave was the 1995 World Pie Eating Championship, and the pies were slated an upcoming championship. As if the story could get any more bizarre, Charlie was then entered into the match by his owner. And, yes, this is a true story.
8. 9 golf balls
Story: Bertie, a dog owned by Mark and Michelle Jewell, eats 9 golf balls over the course of her walks around Essex. Her stomach is so close to rupture, a vet has to put Bertie under the knife to remove them. Moral: don’t walk your dog around the golf course.
10. 12 Fishing Hooks
Toby, a canine version of Danny Ocean (or maybe Ethan Hunt), was not deterred by the 6 foot ledge his owner hid the fish food on. He wanted the bait, unawares of the hooks inside of them. After what was surely a mission of stealth and daring, Toby managed to reach the bait and break open the container with his bare paws. This X-Ray shows the 12 hooks in his stomach, before they passed harmlessly out the southern tunnel.
