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.

  3. Our yard was very clean. These nails had been buried for at least 6 years with out our knowledge. We are new homeowners of only a year. This wasn’t our fault. We love our dogs and would never intentionally let this happen.
