Dog Eats 43 Socks, Had To Have Surgery To Have Them Removed

I heard that the Sock Gnomes Put Him up to it!

"Well, one Portland-area family now knows exactly what happened to 43 of their missing socks -- the dog ate them.

The family's 3-year-old Great Dane had been repeatedly vomiting and retching all day, leading the dog's owners to take it to DoveLewis Emergency Animal Hospital in northwest Portland.

Vets looked at abdominal radiographs and found "a large quantity of foreign material" in the dog's stomach. The vets went to work, performing an exploratory surgery, and what they found is almost hard to believe.

They removed 43 and 1/2 socks from the dog's stomach.

 A photo provided by the hospital showed all 43 socks; it's unknown if there are any matches."
