    NC woman hopes to cash in after dog's deposit

    Thu Mar 19, 8:34 pm ET

    APEX, N.C. – A North Carolina family's dog didn't eat the children's homework, he ate mom's money. Kelley Davis said she had an extra $400 in cash to deposit after working extra hours as a physical therapist. She told the News & Observer of Raleigh that on Friday she planned to deposit the money, but it wasn't in her pocket.

    She remembered leaving it in the bedroom and it occurred to her that the family's 2-year-old greater Swiss mountain dog, Augie, might have eaten it.

    Davis, 42, said when she took Augie for a walk Saturday, she found parts of three $100 bills and five $20s in his leavings. She washed them with a garden hose and hopes to find enough pieces to exchange them for cash.

    A professor at the North Carolina State University Veterinary School said the money shouldn't hurt the dog.

    No truth to the rumor that the dog is nicknamed Benjamin.

    I know there have to be at least another half-dozen jokes in this story, but unfortunately, I simply don't have the time to come up with one, at the moment.

    So I'll just add - [​IMG]

    And apparently, the dog thinks this is humorous, as well.

    Good idea. "Fido, go eat the neighbor's money!"
