Woman Left Distraught After Naughty Pup Chewed Up £250 Worth Of Bank Notes

A woman was left devastated after her mischievous puppy chewed her way through £250 worth of banknotes left on the kitchen unit, effectively ruining Christmas for the family as she was planning to use the money to buy her daughter a doll set.

Catherine Smith, 47, from Wollaton, Nottingham admitted her "terrible" pooch Winnie has been a "nightmare", and even though the mishap happened three years ago, the dog is still causing havoc around the house today.

Speaking about it for the first time publicly, Catherine, the owner of an events company and mum-of-three, said: "I left the money on the kitchen unit while I went upstairs to get ready to go shopping for her presents. When I came back downstairs, Winnie had decided to have it as a mid-morning snack.

"Winnie decided she was peckish and she ate it. It was £250. I came downstairs and it was literally everywhere. She was sitting across all these pieces of money.

"She had got some in her mouth, it was all over her bed and all over the floor. These were tiny, tiny pieces of money.

"I just stood there and cried. I couldn't quite believe what she had done. She literally ate it."

Woman Left Looking Like She'd Been Beat Up After Eyebrow Dye Reaction

Catherine's family has now had to axe festive chocolates on their tree for the first time this year as previously, cheeky black Labrador Winnie has always knocked it down and destroyed the decorations while trying to eat them. She has also repeatedly swam with ducks in the pond in the back garden, pulled furniture down and snacked on wine racks.

She said: "She's always been partial to those chocolates you put on the Christmas tree. She used to, every year, jump to try to reach them and end up knocking the tree over. The whole tree would come down and decorations would get smashed, ornaments would get ruined and it'd cause a right mess.

"So we haven't put any chocolates on the tree this year to avoid situations like that.

"When she was younger, Winnie was very much into everything. She quite often would swim in the little pond we have in our garden with our ducks.

"She's chewed wires regularly, often vacuum cleaner wires. She has done all sorts."

For Catherine's sake, let's hope there are fewer mishaps this year!
