Pittsburgh, January 5: In a bizarre yet costly episode, a Pittsburgh couple was left in disbelief as their Goldendoodle, named Cecil, decided to indulge in an expensive snack by devouring nearly USD 4,000 in cash last month, December 2023. On December 8, Clayton and Carrie Law were shocked to discover that their typically well-behaved dog had ingested the money they had withdrawn from the bank just 30 minutes prior.

According to multiple reports, seeking advice online, the couple discovered that damaged currency could be sent to the US Bureau of Engraving and Printing for reimbursement, but the process could take several years. Instead, the Laws opted to wait for Cecil to naturally expel the cash, a decision endorsed by their bank. Over the course of three days, Cecil vomited and defecated USD 50 and USD 100 bills, prompting the Laws to meticulously recover and piece together the torn currency. 'Mystery' Disease Hits Dog Population in US: Hundreds of Dogs Sick Due To 'Mysterious, Potentially Fatal' Respiratory Illness Across America, Say Reports.

As per reports, the recovered money is currently in their possession, awaiting confirmation from the bank on whether it can be deposited.
