A dog owner seeks full reimbursement from the federal government after the 12-year-old golden retriever eats $500, consumed by five separate $100 bills.

The money eventually came out from the animals “other end,” but in pieces.

Wayne Klinkel, the dog’s owner, taped the pieces back together with the help of his daughter and now he has asked the Treasury Department to give him new bills.

According to the report, the Montana man already sent the taped up bills to the Treasury Department’s Bureau of Engraving and Printing. With his package he included a detailed note regarding the incident.

If a dog eats $500, well that’s a lot of money. No one can really blame Klinkel for trying to get some of the cash back. Upon reading news headlines, many readers may have thought that Klinkel just expected the government to pay him after his dog ate the cash — but he isn’t doing anything wrong by sending in the destroyed money.

“The bureau’s website says an ‘experienced mutilated currency examiner’ will determine if at least 51 percent of a bill is present and eligible for reimbursement. The process can take up to two years,” Fox News reported.

If your dog eats money, it might take awhile, but eventually you can get it back.
