Teddy bear is no picnic for hungry husky
When a hungry husky was rushed into surgery with stomach cramps vets had no idea what to expect.
But when surgeons opened up Ramsez’s stomach they were shocked to find he had swallowed teddy bear, the Daily Mirror reports.
The two-year-old stray was whisked into theatre for life-saving surgery after he was taken to the vets suffering with diarrhoea.
But surgeons in Canterbury, Kent suspected a large fur ball so cut him open under anaesthetic to remove the mass.
They were left stunned to find the remains of the 15cm teddy bear, which had made its home in the poor pooch’s intestines.
Thankfully the stray is now back to good health and has been found a loving home by the Dogs Trust charity.
Put it down, do you hear me!
A livewire puppy – who is fascinated by her owner’s hearing aids – was rushed to veterinary charity PDSA after swallowing one whole.
Domino the Labrador has mischievously tried to get her paws on owner Norma McKenzie’s hearing aids several times before. But this time it ended in near-disaster when she managed to pull them out of their hiding place and chew them up before gobbling one down.
Stunned Norma, who needs hearing aids for occasional use, said she returned home to find six-month-old Domino chewing on one of her aids, with no trace of the other one.
The 63-year-old quickly realised what had happened and rushed Domino to PDSA’s Dundee Pet Hospital, where vets gave the cheeky pup medication to induce vomiting.
Norma said: “The injection did the trick and within five minutes Domino had brought up all the different bits of the hearing aid, along with the battery! We also discovered that she’d swallowed bits from a comb, the jewel from a hairclip and even been munching on prawn crackers!”
Residents of a Siberian city are so disillusioned with human politicians that they have pinned their hopes on a fluffy feline alternative.
Barsik the cat has been propelled to stardom after finishing far ahead of his human rivals for the post of mayor of Barnaul in an unofficial poll run by a regional social media page, the Guardian reports.
Political apathy and resentment over corruption scandals at city hall helped the 18-month-old Scottish fold claw gain nearly 91% of more than 5,400 votes cast.
The poll, launched by the Altai Online page on Russian social network Vk, has become the talk of the town in the city of 700,000 people located some 2,250 miles (3,600km) east of Moscow.
