Like a thief in the night, he snatched the cold, hard cash from a purse placed on the kitchen counter while everyone was sleeping.

But this was no ordinary thief.

Meet Arnie, a 10-year-old beagle from Clearwater, Fla., who swallowed $275 in cash last month, but not before doing something that would make retrieval very tricky.

"It looks like he systematically tore every single bill apart and swallowed it," the dog's owner, Corey O'Kelley, told Bay News 9.

It took lots of scooping and washing, but apparently all of the money has been found and the family plans to take it to the bank soon to replace it. It turns outthis family dog is a repeat offender. He was caught with $100 in cash seven years ago.
