SEATTLE, Nov. 9 (UPI) -- The president of Washington state's West Seattle Soccer Club said his dog took an envelope of fundraising money and ate $300 in cash and $900 in checks.

Bill Fry said he found a $50 bill on his deck when he returned home and initially thought it was a lucky find until he discovered an envelope containing $600 in cash and $900 in checks was missing from atop his dresser, KING-TV, Seattle, reported Tuesday.

Fry said he found about $300 buried in his yard and noticed scraps of money in the droppings of Cosmo, his 5-year-old lab-shepherd mix.

Fry said he will replace the swallowed cash and he is hoping soccer parents who wrote the checks will send replacements.
