13-inch knife removed from puppy’s stomach

September 25, 2005


— The veterinarian thought the X-ray was a joke. A 13-inch serrated knife in a 6-month-old puppy?

"I was just flabbergasted," said Jon-Paul Carew Carew, of Imperial Point Animal Hospital in Fort Lauderdale.

The knife was removed last week from Elsie, a Saint Bernard puppy. The dog's owner, Jane Scarola, said she thinks one of her six other dogs - four Saint Bernards, a German shepherd and a Labrador - somehow got the knife off a counter and it eventually made its way to Elsie.

"She wants to eat everything and anything," Scarola said.
