How is this for a strange¬† snack attack? A dog in Colorado got quite a stomachache after nosing around in the yard. Her owner says the Basset Hound gobbled up a bunch of rusty nails that the family’s other dog dug up.

He swallowed 31 nails in all, but that was just the beginning. An x-ray uncovered the Basset Hound also devoured some siding from the house and her own rabies tags.

The vet warned the owner, once dogs taste metal and like it, they’ll keep trying to eat it.
