Portland-area Great Dane eats 43 socks, lives to bark the tale

PORTLAND, Ore. - So THAT'S where all your socks went.

A veterinarian told KATU News she treated a Great Dane last winter that got sick after eating 43 socks.

Well, 43.5 to be exact.

"We do remove a lot of clothing often from dogs, but this certainly is a record holder," said Ashley Magee, a surgeon at DoveLewis. "We opened up his stomach and just kept removing sock after sock of all different shapes and sizes."

Magee said the dog was OK, and went home after the surgery.
