Rattling Dog

A human in Scotland recently noticed that his Labrador Retriever was rattling. Human and dog had taken walks along a golf course for several months. When the rattling from the dog's stomach started, his human wisely took him to the veterinarian. It turned out, during surgery, that the dog had swallowed thirteen golf balls. Some of these balls had been in the stomach for very long. It must feel nice to get rid of such a burden from the stomach, even though you are fond of golf balls.

Meanwhile, in Japan, Taro Aso has formally announced his bid to succeed Yasuo Fukuda as Prime Minister. Taro Aso is popular, but too conservative according to some in his own party. We will have to see if he becomes PM.
