Panicked owners Elise Pitt and Michael were making dinner for the family when their pet ‘Dustin’ decided to join in.
Elise Said “I set the table, walked away for a minute and the dog jumped, got his paws up, pulled the plate down and scoffed the lot,”
“We were searching the floor looking for the fork, but it was nowhere to be found.”
As they realized it has been swallowed by their pet they immediately rushed to the hospital, where x-rays showed the 10cm long fork had become tucked in his oesophagus.
Luckily, the fork was safely removed by the experts and the dog is fine now.
