If your hair tie has gone missing, chances are Tiki the black Lab has it.

The pooch from Mars, Pennsylvania, swallowed 62 of them – plus eight pairs of underwear! – and underwent surgery last week to have them removed from her belly.

"I slept on it, and woke up knowing it was the right thing to do," she said. "I knew that it would be my responsibility to make his final days the best I could, to mine and his ability. I arrived before the shelter opened, and they let me in to get him. I fell in love the moment I saw him."
