Usually when you hear the story of a child or a dog eating change, it might be one, two or maybe even four coins, however a 4-month old French Mastiff puppy in Paw Paw, Michigan gobbled up 113 pennies!
Jeff and Jodi Keelan have 5 pooches and they have had their fair share of dog mishaps, but they both agree that nothing like this has happened before.
Jeff Keelan explained the event, "I was just laying in bed watching the news and I heard her [Isis] throw up so I got out of bed, walked into the living room and there were eight or nine pennies on the floor."
After bringing puppy Isis to an emergency clinic, just to be safe, x-rays found that she had swallowed 113 pennies and they were sitting in her stomach and large intestines.
Veterinary surgeon Dr. Duane Baker who operated on Isis said, "It is one of the most bizarre things."
Jodi Keelan was very surprised since she doesn’t understand why Isis would want to eat so many pennies!
Thankfully all the pennies were removed and Isis is alright, most things have gone back to normal around the Keelan household now, except for one small change….there is none left around for Isis to snack on!
