Video: the dog that ate 43 socks

(WTNH) — Dogs may or may not have eaten the homework of many students over the years, but there’s one dog in Portland, Oregon, that made a feast out of his family’s socks.

One day back in February, the owner of a three-year-old Great Dane noticed his dog was vomiting all day. Concerned, as any pet owner would be, he took the dog to an animal hospital. X-rays showed the dog had eaten 43 and a half socks.

“We opened up his stomach and just kept removing sock after sock of all different shapes and sizes.” said Ashley Magee, staff surgeon at Dove Lewis Animal Hospital.

The good news is the dog is fine and went home the next day.
