Dog Eats 7 Corncobs, Vet Picks Up the $5,000 Surgery Bill

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) — A dog named Roxy is recovering from surgery after eating seven corncobs.

The Virginian-Pilot newspaper (http://bit.ly/2cokEnF ) reports that the pure bread boxer had gotten into the trash after a family dinner.

Roxy threw-up six of them. An X-ray revealed the seventh after the dog’s owner took it to an animal hospital.

The dog’s owner almost had the animal euthanized because she couldn’t afford the $5,000 surgery bill. A national pet charity, Frankie’s Friends, agreed to help and within less than 24 hours raised the money.
