Dog Eats Homer Simpson
Doh! When Homer said, “Eat me”, he didn’t mean literally. But a dog named Dixie, wolfed down a Homer Simpson toy. Dixie had to have life saving surgery to remove the plastic figurine.
Dixie, a Dalmation cross, was taken to the vets after becoming ill - and an X-ray showed the little plastic figure.
Her owner Victoria Keir, from Aberdeen, Scotland, said the dog had scoffed down a chocolate egg which had the Simpson toy inside a plastic capsule.
Vets from the charity PDSA said that without having surgery Dixie wouldn’t have survived.
