Runaway dog selects winning scratch-off lottery ticket


Published in Cats & Dogs News

(UPI) A Chinese woman's golden retriever pulled away from her during a shopping trip and grabbed a scratch-off lottery ticket that turned out to be a $139 winner.

The woman, identified by the surname Lin, said she was out shopping in Guangdong when her dog pulled out of its leash and ran into a nearby store.

Lin pursued her pet and was told she would have to pay for a scratch-off ticket the canine had grabbed in its mouth, leaving tooth marks.

The pet owner said the embarrassing incident turned out to be profitable when the ticket revealed a prize worth $139.


Lin took her dog back to the store the next day and the canine selected another winner, this time worth just over $4.

The pet owner said she spent some of the prize money on treats and canned food for the lucky dog.
