Dog Eats Man’s … Big Toe (And Saves His Life)

*This is bizarre, a dog eats his owner’s big toe and saves his life! According to, Jerry Douthett came home and passed out drunk. His dog, a terrier chewed most of his big toe.

“He saved my life,” Jerry said. “I would have never gone to the doctor unless this would have happened.” Because he sought medical attention for the wound, doctors learned his blood sugar was high and diagnosed him with diabetes. Wow!

Doctors found a bone infection and amputated the rest of his toe.

Perhaps if the man just went to the doctor’s on the regular and cared anything about his health, his toe would be in tact. But I guess he has an optimistic point of view in this whole situation. I’d be pissed.
