What would you do if your dog really did eat something of yours? Such as your homework, your dinner that you left on the table, your shoe, or something like that? But what if your dog ate something very valuable to you, like four tickets to the Masters?
Yes, that’s right the Masters, live from Augusta, the world’s best golfers competing for the glorious, one of a kind, green jacket and the only thing stopping you from going was your dog.
What would you do?
-Would you buy four more tickets?
-Call Augsta National, telling them that your dog ate your tickets, story?
-Or would you force it out of him (the dog)?
Well for Seattle man, Russ Berkman, who originally won the four tickets in an online lottery, which awarded the winner four practice tickets to Augusta. Came home from his late night shopping trip on Saturday night and found out that his Swiss Mountain dog, named Sierra, had the four tickets as a late night snack.
“When I walked in the house, I noticed there was a few strings on my hard wood floors that appeared to be the strings on my Masters tickets,” Berkman said in an interview on radio station KJR.
In the state of shock, that the old excuse, “my dog ate my homework” really just happened to him, except that it was his masters’ tickets, instead of his homework, left Berkman completely speechless.
So, clueless of what to do, he decided to call his girlfriend. Asking her of what he could possibly do to get the tickets back, or just to still be able to attend the Masters, she came up with an idea; force it out. She told Berkman to make Sierra throw it up, so he would.
Berkman would do so by feeding his dog, hydrogen peroxide, an alternative that he knew was “harmless” to his dog.
