The Dog Ate My... Money??

A North Carolina family's dog didn't eat the children's homework, he ate mom's money.

Kelley Davis of Apex says she had an extra $400 in cash to deposit after working extra hours as a physical therapist.

She told the News & Observer of Raleigh that on Friday she planned to deposit the money, but it wasn't in her pocket. She remembered leaving it in the bedroom and it occurred to her that the family's 2-year-old greater Swiss mountain dog, Augie, might have eaten it.

The 42-year-old Davis says when she took Augie for a walk Saturday, she found parts of three $100 bills and five $20s in his leavings. She washed them with a garden hose and hopes to find enough pieces to exchange them for cash.

A professor at the North Carolina State University Veterinary School said the money shouldn't hurt the dog.

    It is a true story, isn't it? I like this very much. It's funny. I live in Tokyo now. I used to be a COTA in Daytona Beach, and I know the person who is PT there. I miss her and the US a lot. Thank you for sharing this story.

    That is hilarious, except for the part that she lost her money. Sucks for her! To hmm, I hear ya on that one, tell me about it. To No Dogs In My House, how dare you talk about like dogs like that. If I had to guess, you must be scared of dogs. I would do anything to keep a dog right by my side. My golden retreiver and my shetland sheep dog are VERY smart. Goldilocks knows how to fetch ducks and geese and Shelton knows how to find a deer and knows that smell just as good as a beagle would. Every time I go fishing, the dogs know it's time to hop on the boat. They both come to my bed and wake me up to let me know someone is here or he has to go potty. They are actually known to help each other out and they are buddy buddy with each other. That dumb dog comment you just made is senseless and cold hearted.

    Obviously not a very smart dog. Who would want such a dim-bulb animal around, anyway? Besides, that's what people get for the filthy practice of keeping animals in the house. Dirty, dirty, dirty ... and foolish, too, as we see. Served her right.
