EDMOND, Okla. (AP) — An Oklahoma mother and father couldn't figure out what in the world was happening to their child's pacifiers.

They just kept disappearing. But finally the mystery was solved when the baby's grandmother saw the family dog swipe one off a counter.

They had noticed Dovey the dog wasn't eating as well lately, and did vomit some, but other than that she seemed fine.

Then a trip to their veterinarian's office showed that Dovey had 21 pacifiers lodged in her stomach.

KFOR-TV reported that at first, the veterinarian thought there were only seven to nine pacifiers in Dovey's stomach, but the surgery proved otherwise.

So, Dovey is home now and on the mend. Meanwhile veterinarian cautioned pet owners in a Facebook post that "dogs will eat anything, anytime and at any age."
