Surgery on ailing Great Dane yields 43½ socks

5 posts in this topic

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

It was something he ate!

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 1/2 socks.

apparently Great Danes are not known for their intelligence? (and possibly in this case, the ^ owners of this particular sock gobbler)

(lol.. it just sunk in... 43 and 1/2 socks... just stuck me as being funny)

I laughed at the same thing. Maybe that last sock of the 22 pairs was the killer and he could only manage half? lol

Yuck. Hopefully they'll keep socks out of reach next time.
