Dogs just seem to want to take a bite out of anything they think might taste good. This black lab puppy named Sierra did just that. The Oklahoma pup is in the dog house after eating her owner’s $23,000 diamond engagement ring and wedding band.
It didn’t take a lot of investigating for Sierra’s owner Stephanie Lamb to put together what had happened to the missing rings. Apparently Sierra already has a reputation as a “troublemaker”:
“I saw the dogs near the coffee table and remembered that I’d left my wedding rings sitting on the table last night,” she told KOKI-TV.
“I knew that it was Sierra because she’s just a little bit of a troublemaker. She’s kind of the instigator,” Lamb said.
Unfortunately, Lamb did not have the option of waiting for the rings to come out the other end. The rings could have caused damage to Sierra’s intestines, so Lamb opted for surgery to remove the rings.
I love a good bad-dog shaming as much as the rest of the internet, but seeing Sierra’s face after her surgery, I really hope she has learned her lesson. There is almost nothing more sad in the world than an unhappy Labrador puppy. It’s all in those big, brown eyes.
