Somebody answer the dog

A family in Pretoria, South Africa, paid more than $700 to have a cell phone surgically removed from the stomach of their large dog.

Marie Matthews, 67, said her daughter was feeding snacks to Nero, a Great Dane/Doberman mix, when Nero snatched the phone out of her hand and swallowed it whole.

The family took the dog to a nearby veterinary clinic, where the phone showed up on X-ray. It was removed by surgery, but had to be thrown out. Yuck.

Extra points: The daughter's name is Driekie Boojens. Really.
