DURHAM, N.C. — A 17-week old North Carolina puppy is recovering after falling off a table and onto a knitting needle, piercing the dog’s heart.
WRAL reported that Tutti the Papillon is recovering at the Triangle Veterinary Referral Hospital after the incident happened New Year’s Eve at a home in Durham.
The needle was longer than an ink pen, but entered the dog’s chest and pierced her heart, according to WRAL.
The needle was removed and Tutti has since returned home. She is said to be making progress.
