Dog OK After Swallowing 111 Pennies

A mischievous dog in New York swallowed 111 pennies and lived to bark about it.

Last week, Jack, a 13-year-old Jack Russell terrier, knocked over a box of coins while trying to get at a bagel.

As he was licking up the crumbs, he swallowed the coins.

Jack soon became sick and his owner rushed him to the vet.

An x-ray showed the clump of coins in his stomach.

Vets performed an emergency endoscopy to remove the coins over the course of two hours.

Jack’s owner says that he’s now doing just fine.
