Dog Eats $500, Owner Expects Dept. Of Treasury To Replace Bills

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Montana man said he is hoping the U.S. Department of Treasury will replace the five $100 bills he rescued in fragments from his dog`s droppings.


Wayne Klinkel said he and his wife left their 12-year-old golden retriever, Sundance, alone in the car while they had a meal during a trip to Colorado to visit their daughter around Christmas, and they returned to the vehicle to find the canine had eaten five $100 bills.

Klinkel said he followed the dog around for days to retrieve fragments of the bills from Sundance`s droppings, `but it wasn`t nearly enough there to do anything with it.`"


Allegedly a federal employee claims the bills will be replaced if workers determine at least 51 percent of a bill is recovered. The process of verifying the fragments could take months or even years. That`s a polite way of saying that the bills will be replaced when hell freezes over. I would bet a new 100 dollar bill that none of the bills will be replaced.

Some people can`t accept the fact that sometimes crap just happens, and there`s nothing you can do about it. Klinkel should stop bothering bank employees, and move on with his life. Dude, your crappy bills aren`t going to be replaced. End of story, Period!

Only a cluelss person would leave hundreds of dollars in a car, if they hadn`t been eaten by the pooch, they would have been stolen by a crook.

Golden Retrievers are intelligent; this dude doesn`t deserve to own such a smart dog.
