RAISINVILLE TOWNSHIP, Mich. - Tina Burlett thought someone had broken into her house and stolen her custom-made, $5,000 wedding ring, so she called the police, who filed a report. But Burlett‘s grandmother already had a suspect in mind: the family pooch.

"I couldn‘t believe it," Burlett told The Monroe Evening News for a story Thursday. "I didn‘t think so at the time, but it‘s funny now."

Dr. Linda Fung of the Country Creek Animal Hospital said she wasn‘t surprised to learn that Missy swallowed jewelry.

Fung gave Missy some peroxide and out came the ring intact.
