April 23, 2004 LONDON ?Vets cut open a German Shepherd dog to find she had scoffed no fewer than 28 golf balls. Eighteen-month old Libby had been coughing blood after weeks of fetching golf balls at the northern England course where owner Mike Wardrop works as a bar manager. Wardrop told Reuters on Friday he hadn't realized the dog had a secret appetite for the dimpled balls she found at Didsbury Golf Club in Manchester. "When I take her for a walk every day she is prone to finding golf balls," Wardrop said. "She can fit five in her mouth." Libby is now recovering from the operation to remove the balls, with 30 stitches across her belly. "I've had to buy her two footballs," said Wardrop. "She can't swallow them."
