A three-year old great dane has been saved by vets who discovered more than 40 socks in his stomach.
The dog was taken to an animal hospital in Portland, Oregon after his owners observed him repeatedly wretching and vomiting.
X-rays revealed "a large quantity of foreign material" and surgeons at the Dove Lewis clinic removed 43 and a half socks.
The animal was sent home one day after surgery, vets said.
The underwear-loving hound's case was publicised as part of a US-wide X-ray contest to find the strangest objects discovered eaten by pets.
