Dog Needs Surgery After Eating 2 Pounds Of Rocks

Posted: Updated:

A golden retriever ends up in an emergency room after eating not one, not two, but 16 rocks!

Meet Gordon. For some odd reason, this dog likes the taste of rocks.

They were apparently so delicious that Gordon munched on nearly two pounds of rocks!

But, the golden retriever's tummy wasn't too happy with the treats.

Gordon ended up needing emergency surgery, which took two hours.

Doctor Jeff Yu, who performed the surgery, says dogs eat rocks from time to time – but not 16 rocks.

Gordon is expected to make full recovery.
