    I think the dog was clearly only intending to carve itself a nice piece of turkey when things went awry.

    A friend of mine had a dog that ate a six pack of beer - cans and all. :cry:

    Of course, back in those days, the vet just told him to feed the dog lots of bread for awhile. Maybe it would ease things when the shredded cans came out the other end. It lived, so all's well that ends well, I guess.

    If intelligent design held any water, dogs would have opposable thumbs.

    Yeah, so they could open the beers.
