(Newser) – A dog is recovering in Tulsa, Okla., after chowing down on her owner's wedding rings. Stephanie Lamb says she left her engagement and wedding rings, worth $23,000, on a coffee table and forget about them. The next day, "I saw my dogs near the coffee table," but the rings had vanished. "I knew it was Sierra because she’s just a little bit of a troublemaker," Lamb tells FOX23. Sure enough, a vet removed the rings from the Lab's stomach during surgery, though the wedding band looked a bit warped. "She eats more than rings, I'm afraid," adds the vet. "There were some rocks in there and some sticks or maybe bones."
