That's Too Many: Dog Has Surgery To Remove The 43.5 Socks He Ate

At least it wasn't underwear.

These are the results from a 3-year old Great Dane's stomach surgery after his owner's noticed he appeared sick. The vet removed an astonishing 43.5 socks. How the f*** the dog's owners didn't notice they were completely out of socks is beyond me.

The 3-year-old Great Dane was miserable and retching when its owners rushed him to a northwest Portland emergency animal hospital.


X-rays showed a stomach full of "a large quantity of foreign material." Nearly two hours of surgery later, Dr. Ashley Magee had the answer -- the dog had consumed 43 ½ socks.

DoveLewis Emergency Animal Hospital spokeswoman Shawna Harch said it's perhaps the strangest case in the hospital's history, The Oregonian reported.

I dunno, maybe you should start feeding him dog food instead of socks. I mean, I'm no dog whisperer, but I'm pretty sure that's what you're supposed to do. Besides, eating socks? That doesn't sound like a very smart dog. When reached for comment, my dog informed me she would never bang another dog so stupid. Although she seems totally fine with the dog down the street that's always eating dead worms off the sidewalk, so she worries me.

Thanks to Cheryl, who informed me her dog tore the wire out of one of her bras once.
