Family Recovers Nearly $650 From Feces of Cash-Eating Dog

‘Debbie Hulleman’s pet dog Pepper likes to chew things. She’s gnawed on lipstick canisters, shampoo bottles, ball point pens, toothpaste, and now the list includes nearly $750 in cash — gobbled right down.

“This is probably the worst,” Ms. Hulleman said yesterday, recalling the nasty chore of recovering the money from vomit and — you guessed it — dog piles left in the yard. [..]

Pepper got into a purse belonging to a friend of her mother’s and chewed the cash from an envelope. [..]

“It wasn’t that bad. I soaked it and strained it and rinsed it. I just kept rinsing it and rinsing it. I had rubber gloves on of course,” she said. “Everyone said, ‘I can’t believe you did that.’ Well, for $400, yeah, I would do that.”‘
