Dog survives after eating more than 30 nails

A dog in Colorado survived after eating more than two dozen nails from the backyard. Carla Borck has two dogs, a black lab and a Basset Hound named Sophie.

Borck's black lab went around the yard digging up nails and Sophie followed behind and ate them.

Sophie looked like she was having trouble lying down so Borck took her to a veterinarian.

An X-ray revealed that Sophie had eaten 31 nails, siding off of the house and her rabies tags.

The veterinarian warned that once dogs taste metal and like it, they'll keep trying to eat it.
