(CAV News) Did you ever use the gag and told your teacher that ‘my dog at the homework.’ Well this is taking it to another extreme, but seriously after reading this excerpt, I think we should give a standing ovation for this gentleman’s effort in trying to retrieve $500 dollars out of the stools of his 12-year-old retriever.
Wayne Klinkel tells the Independent Record that his dog Sundance ate the bills while he and his wife were on a road trip to visit their daughter.
Klinkel says he carefully picked through the dog’s droppings, and his daughter recovered more when snow melted.
He says he washed the remnants of the bills and taped them together and sent them to the Treasury Department’s Bureau of Engraving and Printing with an explanation of what happened.
The bureau’s website says an “experienced mutilated currency examiner” will determine if at least 51 percent of a bill is present and eligible for reimbursement. The process can take up to two years.
