Vets cut open a German Shepherd dog to find she had eaten no fewer than 28 golf balls :eek:

Wardrop (the owner) told he hadn't realized the dog had a secret appetite for the dimpled balls she found at Didsbury Golf Club in Manchester.

"When I take her for a walk every day she is prone to finding golf balls. She can fit five in her mouth."

"I've had to buy her two footballs," said Wardrop. "She can't swallow them."

Libby is now recovering from the operation to remove the balls, with 30 stitches across her belly.

It's a shame it's not a dog who kicks golf balls instead of eating them, because then it could be...dog leg. (Shut up Scott)
