Seven-year-old Gordon had emergency surgery at BluePearl Veterinary Hospital Wednesday where a surgeon removed 16 rocks from his stomach. Dr. Jeff Yu performed the two-hour procedure.

Yu says that if a dog happens to eat a rock, they stop at one or two. But Gordon just kept going. The rocks weighed nearly 2 pounds. KMSP-TV says Gordon is expected to make a full recovery.
