Rottweiler Puppy Eats 8 Golf Balls

I don’t usually post on the weekends but I am unexpectedly home today.  Blue and I were entered in a dog show today but we have some family stuff going on and we needed to stay home.  My sig other’s mother has been in the hospital recently because of her Alzheimer’s.  It’s gotten much worse lately — she’s starting to see people who aren’t there and she doesn’t know where she is sometimes.  We needed to stay home today and help out a little.

I saw this story online today and I thought you might find it interesting.  Careful what your dog eats!

Dog Undergoes Surgery To Remove Golf Balls

BOXBORO, Mass. — An 8-month-old puppy is recovering from surgery after

eating eight golf balls, Boston television WCVB reported.

Wally’s owners said the Rottweiler pup started acting weird last week. He

eventually threw up three golf balls, including one that was wrapped in a

sock.

But when the dog still was acting strange, Wally’s owners took him to the

Boxboro Animal Clinic.

“Lo and behold, there was another five golf balls sitting in there,”

Veterinarian Stewart Bleck said.

Wally underwent surgery to have the other five balls removed.

Wally’s owner Julianne Bonfilio said some friends like to putt around golf

balls at their home, but they never noticed that the balls were

disappearing.

Bleck estimated that the balls had been in the dog’s system for about a

week.
