I scared my mommy and daddy this weekend. I decided it'd be funny to chew on a penny I found on the floor. Mommy saw me chewing on the penny and came to get it out of my mouth. I didn't want her to take it from me so I swallowed it.
My mommy looked worried and was on the phone with Dr. Kathy, my favorite doctor, talking about foreign bodies and zinc toxicity (pennies aren't made with copper anymore). Then she put a bowl of water on the floor and I started drinking it. Boy, was it yucky! That wasn't water. It made my tummy feel funny and filled my mouth with foam. I started throwing up all my lunch.
Then she took me to the vet the next morning where they put me on a cold table and took a picture of my belly. Dr. Kathy said that she didn't see the penny and that I probably already pooped it out. My mommy looked relieved.
She told me on the way home that I learned how to turn a penny into 90$ overnight. Daddy started calling me piggy bank.
