We’ve all heard of dogs eating our kids’ homework, but you might be surprised by some of the weirdest things dogs have ever eaten, documented below. Luckily, all 16 of these scarfing pups made full recoveries, despite swallowing some unbelievable items. From rocks and rings, to magic wands and rubber duckies, check out this list of 16 of the Weirdest Things Dogs Have Ever Eaten.

Dogs have been known to enjoy eating unpleasant or inedible items, but these pesky pooches have taken it to the limit with the items they consumed:

1. 13 Rocks

A six-month old Labrador puppy who liked to hang out near a fish pond found something that he really liked: rocks.  He stopped eating his food (a very bad sign with young pups) and was taken to the vet.   Diagnosis? Belly full of rocks that had started to work into the intestines. $1,500 in medical bills later the rocks were successfully removed and the lab had a full recovery.

The next item a dog ate is the one that makes bath time fun. But has to be surgically removed when eaten!

    My Sid loves to empty out the bin and eat tissue. He also is obsessed with melon! He has gone into the bin and eaten the seeds from a melon and I didn’t realise until his poop came out littered with melon seeds!

    My pug, Chester bad habits of licking the floors and of knocking over wastebaskets and eating the contents. He started having small seizures, even though everything else seemed normal (his eating, etc.). His belly looked a little bloated, so off to the vet we went. The vet did an x-ray and couldn’t find anything so we went to Washington State University’s vet school for a possible MRI. Instead, they did an ultrasound of Chester’s stomach and found “a mass,” which turned out to be a 1.5lb hairball that was surgically removed and the vet school kept it “for teaching purposes”. The hairball (aka a trichobezoar) completely filled Chester’s stomach, and you could even see where the pylorus went. Several years later, he developed another hairball, so I cut my hair short and we’ve never had that problem again, even though he still licks the floors! I have his second hairball (which weighs quite a bit less because it dried out), it’s quite the conversation piece for those not squeamish!

    We took our dog for a walk in a local park with nature trails. In the few seconds it took me to pick up her poop, I heard her start to lick something. I looked up to see what she was eating and saw that she had her face in a pile of previously unnoticed horse poop.

    my golden ate a light bulb. I have his x-ray. slit his tongue in 1/2 sideways, lost a ton of blood and pieces were stuck in his stomach for a while. luckily he was fine. a few stitches in his tongue and the rest came out fine through the other end. lesson learned….. a golden will eat anything in his path to get to chicken bones!

    As a puppy, my lab had a “hunger for the Word.” She chewed through 3 leather bound bibles (she’s partial to Deuteronomy and Psalms.)

    My son’s Great Dane ate an entire box of cornstarch (box & all), got the lid off a new jar of peanut butter & ate the entire contents, he ate a 5 lb bag of potatoes, several pairs of shoes, a pair of thong panties – among other things. Everything passed thru him.

    Our yellow lab/golden retriever mix ate a $50 bill. We thought we had lost it, but then when we did our backyard spring clean up we found pieces of it in different piles. Didn’t even try to piece it back together. Just laughed that one off.

      that’s too funny! I had a mixed breed dog that would never “steal” food except my caramel delights cookies from girl scouts. she lived until she was 11 1/2 and then got bone cancer. I would never recommend feeding chocolate to a dog but she also lived through it every year, lol!

    My lab mix has eaten a cell phone, remote, wall charger to the cell phone, CDs, a leather shoe and a pair of jeans. No surgery though. All came out. My greyhound puppy ate a whole bar of soap.
