Most dogs misbehave now and then. There are bad dogs, and then there is one dog in Georgia that ate $10,000 worth of diamonds.

Honey Bun belongs to Chuck Roberts, who runs a jewelry store in Albany.

Roberts went to help a customer and left a pack of loose diamonds on the counter. When he came back, the diamonds were gone.

"I left the chair where you could jump up on my chair and jump up on my desk," said Roberts. "[I] looked all over and there weren't no diamonds, so immediately I knew he had eaten them."

But there's a happy ending. Honey Bun is fine, and Roberts eventually got all the diamonds back.

Roberts said he didn't punish the dog. He figures it was his fault for leaving the diamonds around.
