I was enjoying a cigar and a beer with a friend recently when he shared a story about how his dog ate an envelope that contained $250 in cash. His money-munching beagle, Champ, basically enjoyed an expensive meal when no one was home.
Fortunately, my friend's veterinarian assured him that eating cash doesn't actually hurt a dog. The paper passes through their systems undigested before getting deposited into a pile of you-know-what. What's more, after a messy "money laundering" procedure, my friend did some research and found he could get the mutilated cash replaced by the Federal Reserve.
