Hungry dog chews owner’s $4,000 cash that he kept in an envelope to pay a contractor

Cecil, a goldendoodle from Pennsylvania in the United States, has become an internet sensation after indulging in an unexpected snack.

It all started when Clayton Law, the owner of the dog, placed an envelope filled with $4,000 on his kitchen counter in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He and his wife, Carrie, intended to pay their contractor in cash for the fence installation.

However, to Clayton’s astonishment, just half an hour later, he discovered his cherished pooch relishing the most expensive feast of his existence. The aftermath left behind a trail of torn bills and scattered cash, showcasing Cecil’s unique taste in cuisine.

Clayton’s wife, Carrie said, “Suddenly Clayton yelled to me, ‘Cecil’s eating $4,000! I thought, ‘I cannot be hearing that.’ I almost had a heart attack. He’s very particular – you could leave a steak on the table, and he wouldn’t touch it because he’s not food motivated. But apparently he is money motivated.”

After Cecil hurriedly went to the couch for a much-needed rest, the couple wasted no time in reaching out to Cecil’s vet to inquire about any necessary medical treatment. Luckily, because of Cecil’s size, they were able to closely monitor him from the comfort of their own home.

However, their next task turned out to be unexpected and time-consuming. Clayton and Carrie Law found themselves tackling a challenging jigsaw puzzle, but instead of fitting together colorful pieces, they were piecing together their torn-up notes. With determination, they meticulously searched through Cecil’s droppings and vomit, successfully reconstructing most of the ripped bills. Only $450 remained elusive.

The vet reassured the couple that their pet would be fine, as dogs chewing up their owners’ money was not an uncommon occurrence.

In fact, a similar incident had been reported in 2022 when a mischievous dog in Florida devoured $2,000. Instead of feeling discouraged, the owners found humor in the situation, playfully referring to the remaining cash as their most expensive artwork.
