We have all heard of the excuse “the dog ate my homework.” However, Chuck Roberts of John Ross Jewelers had an altogether different excuse; it was “the dog ate the diamonds” The now infamous dog Honey Bun swallowed $10,000 worth of diamonds. Roberts, who was busy with a customer, inadvertently left 4 pouches of diamonds on the desk he was working on. When he returned, he found the contents of one pouch empty and Honey Bun sitting near by. His suspicions were confirmed with an x-ray of Honey Bun. After waiting a day for the diamonds to pass through the digestive tract of dear Honey Bun (gross), Roberts recovered the diamonds. The diamonds were immediately cleaned and sent back to the supplier. It appears diamonds are not only a girl’s best friend; it’s now officially a dog’s best friend too.
