    Default Guide dog eats charity money

    A guide dog infuriated its owners by eating £255 of charity money they had collected.

    Gordon and Claire Webb left the cash on a coffee table overnight but were worried when they awoke to find it missing.
    But after spotting a few chewed notes lying around their house, it soon emerged that their dog Lewis was the culprit.
    They had to wait for nature to take its course before they were able to retrieve some of the shredded notes.
    And the Bank of England has promised the couple that it will try to replace some of the money if they can collect enough remnants and take them to a bank.
    The cash had been collected for local charities by the Frinton Rotary Club in Essex after two fund-raising events.
    Mr Webb, a Rotarian, said: "I went down in the morning and thought he had just shredded some paper. Then I realised what it was: lots of chewed notes.
    "I think I lost my voice for two days shouting at him, but we can't be cross with him for long as he's just too cute. He gets round us very quickly."
    Mr Webb has promised to refund any losses to the charity caused by Lewis.
    The couple added that they have now pledged to hide any money where the five-year-old labrador/retriever cross cannot reach it.
    They have managed to save some of the torn notes and plan to take them to a bank after Christmas.

    Mine once ate $140 cash that I'd left in my billfold in my purse. I was so upset thinking somone I knew had stolen from me. Two days later he walks intot he living room and pukes up a mound of 20's. A doggie ATM! I got so excited at first I forgot it was just the money I thought I'd lost and not some free cash.

    ^^That's what I was thinking!

    To eat money, they had to know that the dog had a history of chewing paper!

    Too funny...that just happened to me today. Stopped at the ATM and set my purse down on the table and when I turned around my puppy had two $20s in her mouth. Luckily I got them away from her in time.

    I've never had a dog like this before. She will literally eat/chew anything.

    Or the couple just stole the money and are blaming it on the dog.
