This is Sierra:

Sierra is Russ Berkman’s Swiss mountain dog. Russ won four tickets to the Masters golf tournament. Why he wanted to go watch a bunch of white guys and Tiger Woods play golf in a restricted club, I don’t know, but he did, and he was pretty damn excited about it. Sierra obviously did not like the membership policies of Augusta National and staged a protest.

Sierra chowed down on Russ’s tickets. Russ was unhappy. What happened then?

He told KJR Radio the first thing he did, when realising what exactly had been her tasty treat, was ‘panic’. The Seattle resident then called up his girlfriend, who told him the only thing he could do to get the tickets for the Georgia tournament back undigested was: ‘Well you gotta make the dog puke.’ Feeding her the substance, which is reportedly safe for dogs to drink, she quickly threw up her meal. He added: ‘Quite frankly, she didn’t really have much else in her stomach but that, so it worked out.

‘I grabbed a spatula, put (the vomit) into a Ziploc baggie and brought it inside on my kitchen counter. ‘I started, I guess, either a CSI or surgical-type process to figure out what was going to be salvageable, if anything.’ Each ticket had been chewed into 20 vomit-covered pieces. But he managed to put them back together. He added: ‘We got about 70 per cent of all four tickets put together. It took about, I don’t know – about three cocktails deep [for me] was how long it took to put this thing all together.’

Then, when he contacted Augusta National Golf Club to explain the situation, they reprinted his tickets.

Russ Berkman is a freak. If you’re so inclined, The Daily Mail has graphic photo documentation of the salvage process.

Today is Opening Day for the Mets. Go watch a real sport.
