(Newser) – A British dog is healthy after emergency surgery to remove an alphabet’s worth of fridge magnets from his belly, the BBC reports. Jack had just returned home from being neutered, and his owner put him in the kitchen to rest. “The next morning I noticed the whole alphabet was missing from the fridge,” she said. “He can be quite greedy.” A doctor said the letters, recovered through surgery, were “well chewed and not easy to identify.”
