A hungry puppy has surprised his owners, and a vet, by swallowing a whole pair of tights.
Owner Bailey Jones often has to stop Parsnip from chewing on things
Parsnip, the seven-month-old Basset hound, was taken to the vets with digestion problems and the tights were discovered during surgery.
Owner, Katie Phillips and her son Bailey Jones, 6, from Telford in Shropshire, said Parsnip would chew on anything, including handbags and shoes.
Vet Barry Jacobs said the tights were found whole without a tear on them.
"They were entire and were not torn at all," he said.
"Parsnip obviously decided he wanted to swallow them whole and that's how they ended up in his stomach."
"He ate a friend's pair of shoes the other day," Katie added.
"He decided to take a couple of chunks out of them - he will eat anything.
"He tried to eat a handbag the other day as well but we stopped him. He just likes to chew on anything."
