National Geographic WILD is airing a new show about real stories of dogs who eat things they shouldn’t and the veterinarians who save them from themselves. The new show, called My Dog Ate What?  premiers Nov. 3 at 9 PM.
My first response to this was to be a bit horrified, but after I saw the preview about a dog that ate, among other objects, four pairs of underwear and a pan of brownies along with the shattered glass pan, I think it might be interesting. I was amused by web editor Lisa Wogan’s first response, which was, “They’ve run out of dog ideas.”
I’ve heard stories of dogs eating all kinds of non-food items, but my favorite is the tale of a friend of mine. Her dog ate her engagement ring. (He was not hurt by it, thankfully.) She found it doing what most of us would do if confronted by this situation—sorting through what came out the other end. Too bad this happened a decade before this show existed to share such stories with the world. JoAnna Lou’s blog about cash found in dog poop  is another great example of dogs eating weird, but valuable, items.
What has your dog eaten that you just couldn’t believe?
