ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -- A couple has found a suspect in the disappearance of their $4,500 wedding ring -- their 10-month old basset hound.

KOB-TV (http://bit.ly/zPYUJc) reported Wednesday that a veterinarian recently removed the ring from the dog named Coraline after X-rays showed it was lodged deep in her stomach and wasn't coming out on its own.

Albuquerque resident Rachelle Atkinson says she and her husband Scott had searched everywhere for the ring before beginning to suspect the dog ate it.

The vet said basset hounds have a tendency to eat rocks.

Atkinson says she now hides the ring while Coraline is off munching away at anything she can find.
