Puppy Survives Swallowing 13-Inch Knife

September 28th, 2005 // 5 Comments

The story wouldn’t have been nearly as interesting is the puppy died. What would the appeal of a 13-inch serrated knife have been to the puppy?

The knife was removed this week from Elsie, a Saint Bernard puppy. The dog’s owner, Jane Scarola, wrapped it in a towel and put it in a cabinet atop the refrigerator.

“I’m going to frame it and give it to Dr. Carew,” Scarola said. “He should hang it. Everybody should know what puppies are capable of putting down their throats.”

She thinks one of her six other dogs — four Saint Bernards, a German shepherd and a Labrador — somehow got the knife off a counter and it eventually made its way to Elsie. “She wants to eat everything and anything,” Scarola said.

    DOUBLE LOL! Firstly, my husband’s name is Jim so that better not be MY Jim who made the first comment. Lastly, that vet is pretty cute but I think he’s got hair plugs, which I wouldn’t put under the ‘smokin’ hot’ column. As for that puppy—–cutest.doggy.evah.

  5. I think being hot is a requirement for being a vet – like 80% of them are hot. Like firemen.
