Pepper Ann is one dog that loves money.
This eight-year-old Lab-German shorthair mix and her sibling, Zach were at Grandma’s house. Grandma had a friend over who had left her purse on the ground despite instructions of not leaving anything on the ground in Pepper Ann’s reach.
When the two women woke up, they discovered that this curious dog had eaten more than $800 in cash. Some of the money was spread around the house and some of it was spread was in the backyard. And some ended up in Pepper Ann’s stomach and came out after she took care of business.
Pepper Ann’s owner walked around the yard and the house collecting the remnants of the torn up money. She taped together the pieces that she found and was able to trade in her chewed up money for more than $700 worth of fresh bills at her local bank. She is holding onto one piece of a $100 bill in hopes that she will recover the other half.
“She’s always been naughty, and when she was little it was ‘you’re lucky you’re so cute, you’d be gone otherwise.’ But she’s just a cute little dog. She has personality, but she has issues also,” owner Debbie Hulleman said.
“She’s eaten lipstick, so lipstick gets all over the carpet, ball point pens all over the carpet, toothpaste, shampoo,” Hulleman recalled. “She’s done a lot, Kleenex, she’ll eat a whole box of Kleenex if she can get it.”
“She goes from room to room, looking to get into trouble.”
