Honest…My Dog Ate Them

Print Friendly

A desperate golf fan forced his pet pooch to get sick and then sifted through her vomit after she ate his tickets for a prestigious tournament.

Russ Berkman fed his beloved Swiss mountain dog Sierra hydrogen peroxide solution after realizing she had devoured the four sought-after passes to Augusta National, sight of the upcoming Masters golf event .

He then pieced the scraps of the tickets he had won in a lottery back together so he could still fulfill a life-long dream and take his three friends to watch Tuesdays practice round.

He told KJR Radio the first thing he did, when realizing exactly what had been her tasty treat, was ‘panic’.

The Seattle resident then called up his girlfriend, who told him the only thing he could do to get the tickets for the Georgia tournament back undigested was: ‘Well you gotta make the dog puke.’

Feeding her the substance, which is evidently safe for dogs to drink, she quickly threw up her meal.

He added: ‘Quite frankly, she didn’t really have much else in her stomach but that, so it worked out.

‘I grabbed a spatula, put (the vomit) into a Ziploc bag and brought it inside on my kitchen counter.’

‘I started, I guess, either a CSI or surgical-type process to figure out what was going to be salvageable, if anything.’

Each ticket had been chewed into 20 vomit-covered pieces. But he managed to put them back together.

He added: ‘We got about 70 per cent of all four tickets put together. It took about, I don’t know – about three cocktails deep [for me] was how long it took to put this thing all together.’

Then, when he contacted Augusta National Golf Club to explain the situation, they were nice enough to reprint his tickets.

The 2012 tournament begins today, and will see Charl Schwartzel defending his title. Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Rory McIlroy are favorites for this year’s event.
