'Diamond' dog's lavish taste


A dog in the US caused his owners a panic after swallowing a diamond worth $20,000 in a jewellery shop.

A diamond dealer had brought the precious stone to the store but dropped it and Soli the golden retriever wolfed it down.

Owners George Kaufmann and Robert Rosin had to wait for nature to take its course before returning the diamond to the dealer.

Jenny Wivell reports.
