Some dogs just have cast-iron guts I guess.
that reminds me of my collie. She stole 12 uncooked hot dogs once.
Daisy my moms dog stole a unbaked loaf of bread. My mom thought we all stole it until we saw daisy sitting all plump and glazed.

Dogs will eat the darnedst things.. When I was first married years ago we had a german shorthair (95 lbs.). I spent all day making 6 homemade apple pies, just like gramma's.
I was so beat, I laid down for a nap and less than 30 min later heard a noise in the kitchen.. OMG, Tom was almost done with his 3rd pie Thank goodness he left 3 for us, that boy loved FOOD!

OMG! I wonder how much of a stomach ache that gave her when it continued to rise in her belly...Oh that poor dog! LOL

Reminds me of other things I've known dogs to eat. My ex husband had a Chesapeake Bay retriever for hunting. He was a great hunting dog but an absolute idiot in all other respects. I never saw such a dumb dog in my life. He'd eat anything that wasn't nailed down. One day he came walking up to me, and I saw this little green thread hanging from the corner of his mouth. I thought, oh no he's chewed up some clothes and I reached down to pull the thread off him. I pulled, and it grew longer, and I pulled some more and it got longer, and the dog starts gagging. Turns out he swallowed a whole spool of green mint dental floss and only the last bit of it was left sticking out of his mouth. He'd also eat my kids toys and then poop toy bits for days.

My grandmother used to crochet snowflakes to put on the Christmas tree. She would make them hard by dipping them in some kind of sugar water. Well, one year our yellow lab Chelsea ate every snowflake (hook and all) that she could reach off of our tree. She was fine except the next day we had to help her "pass" them.
