HOUSTON (KPRC/CNN) - A dog in Houston is known to eat everything from Barbie dolls to Walmart plastic bags.
But when she got into her owner's cash bin that is when she went too far.
"Here is a two dollar bill, here is another five that is kind of ripped up, and the rest are ones, and as you can see they are almost entirely intact," said Cindy Mollzer-Aranguren.
She couldn't believe a mountain of cash was in her dog's stomach.
While she was at the grocery store Friday, 5-year-old Misty got into a tin filled with cash and ate $54.
"I threw both the dogs, I have Misty and a little yorkie, into the bedroom - and I said I will feed you when I get back," Mollzer-Aranguren said.
Misty apparently couldn't wait that long and started eating money that was inside a tin in the bedroom.
"I looked in there and all the bills were gone," Mollzer-Aranguren said
Worried the money would get caught in her stomach, Mollzer-Aranguren brought Misty to the vet where they found the wad of cash in her stomach.
"Cash is kind of strange, and so my feeling is there must have been something on it, someone had spilled something on it, it had a flavor that made the dog want to eat it," said Ashley Kotinek, Misty's Veterinarian.
The vet gave Misty medicine to induce vomiting.
"And she eventually just vomited like $18, and the vet called me and said, 'Yeah, she vomited $18.' I said, 'Oh, that's great,'" Mollzer-Aranguren said.
And eventually Cindy got all of her money back.
"I said to the vet, 'Can I pay you in cash? Mollzer-Aranguren said.
Cindy says that is the last time Misty will be left alone in their room.
