"When I walked in the house, I noticed there was a few strings on my hard wood floors that appeared to be the strings on my Masters tickets," Berman recounted. His girlfriend suggested he get the dog to vomit -- which produced approximately 80 pieces representing 70 percent of the actual ticket paper.
(To induce the vomiting, Berkman fed Sierra Hydrogen peroxide -- which is safe for animals to ingest for this purpose.)
After attempting to connect the vomit-soaked pieces, Berkman finally contacted the ticket office and explained his situation. "First, they said, 'Are you serious?!,'" Berkman recalled. The stunned but symapthetic staffers eventually re-issued his prize.
Probably wishes he made that call before the puke-digging, huh?
What about you: would you sift through vomit to recover a valuable possession??
