The skinny: Dog swallows 111 coins and survives

PENNIES FOR A PUP

Dog swallows 111 coins and still survives

A New York man said veterinarians conducted life-saving surgery to remove 111 pennies from his dog's stomach. Tim Kelleher said Jack, his Jack Russell terrier, ingested the $1.11 in pennies while trying to eat bagel crumbs from his desk Friday. "He climbed on my desk to get at the bag with the bagel and knocked the change all over the floor. While he was licking up the crumbs, he swallowed the pennies," Kelleher said. He said veterinarians at BluePearl Veterinary Partners were worried the zinc in the coins could pose a lethal threat to the 13-year-old dog's liver and kidneys, so the pennies were removed in a two-hour operation.

BODY OF LIES

Mortician buries wrong woman

Evan Davidson lived with his wife for 51 years. But when he told morticians that the woman in the open casket wasn't Darlene Davidson, they politely told him he was mistaken. They were wrong. Simpson Family Mortuary of Inglewood acknowledged Monday that the woman it buried on March 1 was not Davidson's 82-year-old wife. Three days after the funeral, an employee called and asked Davidson to come and identify a body. He went to the mortuary. "I saw my wife, and the shock just knocked me down," he said. The mortuary has offered to exhume the body and to pay the costs of burying both women.

DOLLARS AND SENSE

Return of printer leads to jail time

Police in Wisconsin said they busted a counterfeiting suspect who allegedly returned a printer to Walmart with fake bills inside. Lake Hallie police Chief Cal Smokowicz said officers were called to Walmart March 7 by employees who said Jarad Carr, 37, had attempted to return a printer without a receipt or other proof of purchase and workers found a sheet of counterfeit bills inside the device. Officers said employees refused to accept the printer, but Carr insisted and would not leave. Smokowicz said Carr refused to speak to officers and resisted arrest. Carr, who was found to be carrying three additional counterfeit $100 bills, was arrested on charges of attempted theft by fraud, forgery and resisting arrest.

SPEEDY DELIVERY

Cop helps with birth of child

An Iowa City police officer pulled over a speeding SUV — then helped the driver and his passenger deliver a baby. When Officer Kevin Wolfe stopped the vehicle Sunday night, the driver jumped out and yelled, "Sir, we're delivering a baby right here, right now!" Wolfe said that by the time he reached the passenger door of the SUV, the baby's head and arms were already out. He assisted in the final stages of the delivery and wrapped the child in a blanket before escorting the family to a hospital. The episode was captured by Wolfe's dashboard camera. Police spokeswoman Vicki Lalla says Wolfe didn't issue a speeding ticket.
