When it comes to your dog, what’s theirs is theirs and what’s yours is also theirs.
Usually it’s socks, pants, the remote or your best pair of shoes. But one dog mum had to draw the line when it came to her savings.
Jocelyn Horne is no stranger to chaos caused by her pup chewing anything and everything she can find.
However, Peggy, the miniature poodle recently got her chops around £100 of her owner's savings, the Mirror reports.

The naughty little pooch managed to get into the pot on the side of Jocelyn's bed and shred the money to pieces.
Jocelyn had been saving for a rainy day, but Peggy munched all of the notes she found in there.
The mum-of-three thought her partner Allan had played a prank on her when he told her what had happened when she came home from work.
But after uncovering a shredded £20 note in her room, Jocelyn had a horrible realisation Allan’s claims might be true.
And it was all confirmed the next day when Peggy was sick on the kitchen floor, throwing up the remains of the cash.
The 35-year-old from the Isle of Man was gutted when she realised what Peggy had done.
She said: "Peggy wants to chew everything and anything that hits the floor - I'm always picking up after her.

"I keep my bedroom door closed because of her and I came in and could just see a single piece of £20 on my bed. I searched high and low, couldn't find anything else and thought there's no way she's eaten £100 - she couldn't have.
"I actually thought it was my boyfriend playing a joke on me as he kept laughing."
Jocelyn was hopeful that she might be able to find the serial numbers on the pieces of notes from the dog's sick - but unfortunately, she wasn't able to.
"I thought I'd wash them to see if I can get the serial numbers because then you can possibly get your money back, but she'd just thrown up parts of each note as if to really take the mickey.
"There was no hope of getting the serial numbers for the cash - not unless I wanted to go through what came out of her back end and I won't be doing that."
She added: "I didn't find it funny at the time - it was £100, I was absolutely gutted.
"I still don't know whether to laugh or cry - I look at her and I think I bloody love you, but you've swallowed £100."
