Dog Found to Have Ring Lost Three Years Ago
NIAGARA FALLS, March 5 — Three years ago Mrs. David Hann, 17 Hyde Park boulevard, lost her wedding ring. She searched her home but could not find it. This offered something of a mystery as she was sure she lost it somewhere in the house. The ring was found Thursday but the finding presented as much of a mystery as the loss.
Mrs. Hann said today that she fed her pet dog Thursday and before the animal ate he spat something from his mouth. It glistened on the linoleum and upon investigation proved to be the lost ring.
Mrs. Hann said she believed that the dog picked the ring up after she lost it and that it probably has clung to one of his teeth until it became loosened Thursday. It was undamaged and as bright and shiny as when she lost it.
