The Dog Did It: Michigan Pooch Coughs Up Diamond Ring

Raisinville Township, Mich. (AP) -- Tina Burlett thought someone broke into her Michigan home and stole her wedding ring.

The custom-made jewelry is worth $5,000. She called police, who filed a report.

But Burlett's grandmother had a different suspect in mind: the family pooch. The pit bull named Missy had been caught gnawing on VCR's, electric blankets and a diamond earring.

X-rays proved the grandmother right. The valuable bauble was inside Missy's belly.

A vet gave the dog something to make it throw up, and the ring came out intact.
