When the two women woke up, the dog had dug into the purse, and devoured more than $800 cash.

Some pieces were spread around the house — and some were left in the backyard, after Peppy swallowed the money and did her business.

"Pretty soon (I) came to a pile, that had a fifty dollar bill hanging out, part of a fifty, and I said 'gosh, look at that,'" Hulleman laughed. "There were lots of piles with money hanging out there, so I had to save it, rinse it, strain it."

The dog owner taped together the remnants she recovered, and swapped the mangled bills for more than $700 bucks worth of fresh currency at a local bank.

Hulleman is hanging on to half a one hundred dollar bill, in hopes she will recover the other portion. She is less optimistic that Pepper Ann will turn over a new leaf.

Well a study earlier had concluded that a lot currency in circulation was contaminated with trace amounts of fecal contamination. Add puppy poo to the mix and voila!

I think the Treasury would have done all the dirty work for her, free.

Just send the shreds, and the piles of poo and they will send back clean cash.

Really, they do that? Who would trust them though? Kind of like the IRS doing your taxes for free. :)

They'll be paying out the ass for fines. :D

And this is why when I'm 16, I'm switching to check/debit card. Except for school lunch. ;)

$800 US (I assume) is a lot of notes to have in your purse

Maybe they were going to buy an iPhone plus accesories the next day?

They will only replace money if you can show them both serial numbers and at least 75% of the bill.

I was kidding, but the article did say a grandma shredded some money and they honored it, but how good could a decrepit old hand and some scissors do anyway.

Funny you say that, I am nearly 16 and have two debit cards. Selling things on eBay makes life so much easier. 21st century lemonade stand!

I am suprised the bank took money that was once in a pile of dog ****.
Who here would dig $50 from a pile of dog crap? I wouldn't..

Well it depends how poor I would be.
Oh, I love your name. And Plup Fiction!
Thanks wakka, is yours a salute to fozzy bear? imac with cheese was my first choice though (already taken), I registered at like 4 in the morning, then remembered a royale was a quarter pounder.

I am only poor because of my mac habit.

Tell me if your dog ever eats a fifty. :)

No, wakka is from a video game I played once. It was easy to remember, so I went for it.

No Macs yet.. Because of this iPhone and my inability to save money.. :p

And you're welcome to any bills I find in the backyard.

Yes, makes you wonder when people sniff their money as if to soak up the aroma of cash. Little do they know..:p
