Sophie seeks out anything that is nailed down just so she can chew on those nails.
Her owner did not know about the problem until Sophie did not want to lie down. An X-ray explained the problem: Sophie had 31 nails inside her stomach.
"Well my initial reaction was, 'I'm so glad she's OK.' After then it went to: 'I'm gonna kill her for eating that many nails!'" Carla Borck, Sophie's owner, said.
Sophie's appetite extended to the siding of the house and even her own dog tags.
She is now recovering after having all the objects removed from her stomach.
However, her vet is worried the problem is not over. Apparently there is a syndrome in some animals that once they develop a taste for eating metal objects, it can be difficult to break the habit.
