Excuse Me Sir, Your Dog is Ringing

The funny thing is, we actually have this one beat:

A Turkish petrol attendant who lost his mobile phone dialled the number to discover it had been eaten by his dog.

The man, from the province of Konya, could not believe his ears when his dog's stomach started ringing.

True story: A golden retriever came into Ellen's clinic with "foreign body symptoms"... basically, classic indications that the dog had eaten something he shouldn't have eaten. X-rays revealed a large obstruction in his stomach, which, after careful examination, was discovered to be a bra (Ellen's that good with X-rays). During surgery, it turned out to be a really nice bra, copper-colored and lacy, 34-D. So Ellen, well if you ask me being kinda weird but trying to do the right thing, washed and dried the thing and put it in a bag.

"We should've known something was up when a very small thin lady walked in and asked for the dog", she said. "But I said, 'here's your bra too, right out of the dog's stomach. We wanted to save it because it was so fancy!'"

The woman suddenly went all cold and flinty. "That's not my bra" she said, doing a passable Clint Eastwood imitation in the process. Ellen said she thought she could hear the wistle from "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" in the background.

"Umm... well... okSeeYouNextWeekForShotsAndStitchRemoval!" (Ellen talks fast when things go pear-shaped on her).

"Oh it's not the dog you should be worried about", she said darkly as she left, dog leash in one hand and someone's bra in the other.

Apparently, by reports, she did show for the follow-up, so either the fallout stayed strictly verbal or, well, they never found the body.

See! Shaggy dog story! No web site should be without one!
