One basset hound has expensive tastes, after the dog ate a wedding ring valued at $4,500.

Rachelle Atkinson, from Albuquerque, said the dog consumed the ring after she took it off and left it on a nightstand. According to veterinarians, Basset Hounds are notorious for eating rocks.

Rachelle and her husband searched for the ring, but then realized what happened. Her husband had to sift through a lot of dog poo, before taking the dog in to the vet to have the ring removed.

After a very expensive snack, the dog is doing okay. And Rachelle now keeps her ring safely out of the dog's sight. Although could you wear a ring, knowing it went on a trip through your dog's bowels?
