Surgery on ailing Great Dane yields 43 1/2 socks

PORTLAND, Ore. — 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 ½ socks.

I think I would miss that many socks out of my drawer.

I keep getting a lot of 1/2 pairs, not 43 though. I thought the dryer was eating them. I better take a closer look at the dogs.
