Missouri dog pays off his own vet bill

KENNETT, Mo. -- Oh sure, there are dogs that can sit and roll over. But a family pet in Kennett recently earned enough money to pay off his own veterinary bill.

Tracy Currey says the labrador named Chocolate was rescued from a pound in 2007 and adopted as a family pet.

Currey realized the dog had excellent retrieving and fetching skills, and they started practicing with decoys in the yard.

Chocolate developed a neck issue that needed the attention of a vet. The family entered the dog in a recent waterfowl retrieving event, where Chocolate won $45. They say it was just enough to pay for his recent medical costs.
