STEVENS POINT, Wis. — A Wisconsin woman who lost her diamond wedding ring five years ago had given up all hope of finding it after searching high and low.

It turns out her mischievous dog may have had it all along.

Lois Matykowski (mat-ih-KOW'-skee), of Stevens Point, was eating an ice pop two weeks ago when she noticed her granddaughter's treat was gone. Her dog, Tucker, was smacking his jaws. The 10-year-old mutt the family calls the "food burglar" had struck again, swallowing it whole.

The snatched food soon came back up. Two days later, Tucker threw up again. Matykowski tells WAOW-TV (http://bit.ly/TK6fJ5 ) that this time when she went to clean up the mess, she found her missing ring.

Her veterinarian says the Popsicle stick may have dislodged the ring inside his belly.
