Murphy had a ball ... and then another and another and another.
The 7-year-old rescue pooch swallowed six golf balls and underwent emergency surgery to have them removed.
According to The Guardian, the dog's owner, David Larson, knew something was up when Murphy seemed ill after eating a bone.
Larson took the German shepherd to Westway Veterinary Group in Newcastle, England, where X-rays revealed a big bellyache.

Seagulls are notorious degenerates. Whether they're swiping your french fries or simply squawking loudly in your general vicinity, gulls, beach-pigeons, sky-crabs – whatever you want to call them – are rarely welcome guests.

Wang Kaiyu is experiencing a bizarre case of mistaken identity.
The animal lover from China's Yunnan Province recently discovered the two large dogs he had been raising for the past two years are actually Asian black bears, reports Yahoo! U.K.
Kaiyu bought the pair of "puppies" as cubs in Vietnam from a vendor who said the animals would grow into lively, friendly dogs with big appetites. The babies certainly grew to be larger, livelier and hungrier, though they also started exhibiting considerably stranger behaviors.

The cat never saw it coming.
An Amazon customer dressed her feline in a revealing crop top that her daughter purchased on the website to purr-ove a point – and the wacky post has gone viral.
"My 16 y.o. daughter bought this thing. It is ridiculously small and I probably couldn't legally post a picture of what it looks like if she attempts to wear it. But, so you can see ... here is a picture of our cat wearing it. To be fair, it does cover all of the cats nipples, however, she hates the weave. In summary, do not buy this, even for your cat," reads the message posted by sbo43 from Houston, Texas.

Stig may have cashed out all nine lives when he took a ride through an industrial shredder at a recycling plant.
Staff at the plant in Rainham, Essex, spotted the gray kitten traveling on the conveyor belt towards the machine, but they were too late to help, reports The Mirror.
Site supervisor Daniel Coker watched in horror as the kitten started meowing as it entered the machine used for sorting recyclables. Seconds later, the little cat emerged from the other end of the shredder – totally unharmed.

Boyz II Men's "I'll Make Love To You," Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On," the faint purr of a wolf spider – as it turns out, these are all basically the same thing.
