Dog coughs up wedding ring missing for 5 years

STEVENS POINT, WI (KTRK) -- A Wisconsin woman found her wedding ring that she lost years ago in the most unusual way.

Turns out, all this time, it's been in her dog's stomach.

Tucker is know to his family as 'the food burglar.' A few days ago, Tucker snatched a popsicle from his owner, Lois Matykowski and swallowed it whole.

A few minutes later, Tucker threw it back up, stick and all, and then he threw up something else: Matykowski's missing diamond ring.

"I'm just elated. He threw up on the carpeting and I don't even care," Matykowski said.

Matykowski's veterinarian says the popsicle stick may have dislodged the ring inside Tucker.

"Friends have said, 'I want a dog that throws up diamonds,'" said Matykowski. "Who wouldn't, right?"

An X-ray showed there are no more treasures hidden in Tucker's belly.
