It happened on a regular morning in central California. Owners Bret and Lisa Ballou discovered their dog Bailey – a yellow Labrador and Golden Retriever cross – throwing up water repeatedly. They immediately took him to the veterinarian.
The vet listened to his symptoms and felt around his stomach, determining that Bailey needed an X-ray. Just a few minutes later, she came back into the room and plastered up an image on the light board, declaring, “Count ‘em!”
Says Bret, “I did, and there were seven silver-dollar sized rocks in Bailey’s stomach. Evidently, he snacked on some of his dog run decor. Fortunately the stones were on their way out and no surgery was required – as long as he got out every single one of them by himself. Nothing says ‘love’ like rummaging through poop, counting to lucky #7!”
