SPOKANE, WA—Dogs have no shame when it comes to eating practically anything—including what comes out the other end. It turns out Deborah Carlson’s German shepherd, Frieda, is obsessed with chowing bugs. Carlson recently returned home to a box full of missing dry flies evidently knocked off the counter by her savvy canine. “The scans showed 15 flies had made it through the dog’s throat, stomach and intestines and were ‘on the home stretch.’ The 16th fly was never found. Frieda ended up passing all 15 flies without problem.”Source Link
