Have you ever used the excuse, "My dog ate my homework."? And your teacher gave you detention for making up such a ridiculous excuse. Compared to VPI Pet Insurance's list of the Most Unusual Items Ingested by Pets in 2011 shared by Woof Reports, a few pieces of paper seem to be a lot more believable.

Here is the complete list of items that were consumed by the canines & felines insured by VPI in the year 2011.

Remember to keep inedible objects out of your pet's reach to prevent such incidents from happening!
