Vets saves collie with a 20 inch stick stuck down his throat

Vets have saved a dog after a three-hour operation to remove a 20 inch long stick which became lodged in the pet's throat during a game of catch.
Archie, an eight-month-old border collie, ran into the stick at speed after it was thrown at the dog to chase.
The stick tore through the animal's windpipe and shredded the muscles down the side of its neck.
The dog collapsed unconscious and the owner's father Steven Harding carried it half a mile to its home in Exeter, Devon.
He then took it to a surgery where three local vets Peter Howard, John Gale and Sara Eley opened up its neck and removed the stick.
Mr Howard said: "It was impossible to know what damage had been done to vital structures in Archie's mouth, throat and neck but it was obviously a life threatening condition.
"There were two small branches acting like barbs anchoring the stick inside the throat.
"Amazingly the major blood vessels of the neck had avoided potentially fatal damage and after three hours of intense surgery the stick was removed through the neck incision and all the wounds repaired."The dog is now recovering at home where he has been banned from playing with sticks.

Mystery inmate refuses to leave jail
An inmate is frustrating prison bosses by refusing to leave jail - two years after serving his sentence. The male prisoner, who is a foreign national, has exploited a loophole in the system by refusing to divulge his real name and country of origin. He was due to be deported to his home country when he completed a six-year sentence for wounding with intent and aggravated burglary at HMP Peterborough in 2006.
But the necessary paperwork cannot be processed because he has refused to give prison officers his name or reveal the country where he was born. Angry prison bosses fear the unnamed inmate could potentially remain at the prison indefinitely - costing the taxpayer an estimated £30,000-a-year.
"He has been due for deportation since he completed his sentence almost two years ago, but the prison has no choice but to hold him until we get the information.
5-Year-Old Gets Hole-in-One on Illinois Course
Look out Tiger Woods, 5-year-old Drew Gray's got game.
The kindergartner had a hole-in-one — though it doesn't count because it was on par-3 course — last week on the 75-yard, fifth hole at Yorktown Golf Club. The shot was witnessed by several family members and verified by course owner John Bethard.
Drew is the youngest player to ace a hole at the course, Bethard said. Drew has been playing golf on family outings for two years. He played this summer in the club's golf camp for 4-to-8-year-olds, Bethard said.
Man Offers Woman $100 To Hide Him
A man on the run from Pasco County deputies offered a Spring Hill woman $100 to hide him from authorities. She didn't take the money.
The Sheriff's Office reports that 23-year-old Joshua Christian barged into the woman's home, offered her the money and then went into a closet.
But when deputies tracked Christian from his nearby home to the woman's house, she turned him in.
Authorities say Christian was wanted for several crimes, including beating two people with a baseball bat, taking a BlackBerry cell phone and stealing an all-terrain vehicle.
