St. Augustine Family Dog Eats $1,000 in Cash

The dog didn’t eat their homework. This pooch has much more expensive taste.

Christy Lawrenson left her St. Augustine, Fla., home after putting 10 $100 bills in an envelope to take to the bank as her car payment, The St. Augustine Record reported. Her husband, Joe, stopped home on a lunch break to get the money, but it was gone.

The couple had a very big clue as to the thief’s identity, however. Shredded pieces of money were scattered around. Tuity, the couple’s 4-year-old mixed-breed dog, was sitting at the scene of the crime.

“She ate the bill, the envelope … everything,” Christy Lawrenson said.

The couple was not about to give up on that much money. They fed Tuity a little bit of peroxide, which made her vomit up a lot of green stuff.

Then the couple had the unsavory task of trying to piece together shredded, vomit-coated bills.

They were able to reassemble $900 worth, which they traded in at the bank for $800 in clean cash. The bank declined to accept one $100 bill because it was missing a key piece, so the Lawrensons are sending the remnant to the Treasury Department – which an explanation of what happened --- in the hope the agency will replace it.

The Lawrensons say Tuity is none the worse for her experience, and they’ve learned a valuable lesson.

“We just keep our money away from her now,” Joe Lawrenson said.
