With one dog, it's the vomit on the sole of a shoe; with another dog, it's...

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.

That dog is very lucky. There are a lot of people out there (people feeling on all sides the pressure of the recession) who would not have waited for "nature to take its course."
