Love of tights puts Basset hound on vet's operating table.
A hungry puppy has surprised his owners, and a vet, by swallowing a whole pair of tights (pantyhose).
Parnsip, the seven-month-old Basset hound, was taken to the vets with digestion problems and the tights were discovered during surgery.
Owner, Katie Phillips and her son Bailey Jones, 6, from Telford in Shropshire, said Parsnip would chew on anything, including handbags and shoes.
Vet Barry Jacobs said the tights were found whole without a tear on them.
"They were entire and were not torn at all," he said.
"He ate a friend's pair of shoes the other day," Katie added. With news video.
