Miracle turtle

A pet turtle survived nearly ten minutes inside a stomach after it became an appetizer for a dog:

Shelby insisted on a rescue mission and, on the advice of a vet, her parents made Bella vomit. Out came Pepper (turtle), still alive despite a shattered shell and an estimated 10 minutes inside (dog) Bella's belly.

That's one tough turtle!

"The turtle would definitely have caused an obstruction," Thomassy said. "Without cutting it out directly, it eventually would have killed the dog."

Yet more evidence that dogs are stupid and make terrible pets. Get a cat, people!
