Remember that old school excuse, "A dog ate my homework?".
Well, it appears that a star Welsh rugby player got to use that excuse after his dog accidentally ate his passport before an overseas match.
24-year-old Jason Tovey of the Cardiff Blues was getting ready to travel with his team to France for a match in the Heineken Cup against Toulon but found out that wouldn't be able to make the trip since his puppy had destroyed his passport according to the BBC News:
“It’s a bit like the old schoolboy excuse that the dog ate my homework,” he said.
The outside half’s Labrador puppy Buster had even left his teeth marks on the passport, which now has gaping holes in it. “Buster is always chewing things but usually it’s my sock and shoes,” said Tovey.
“As soon as I saw the passport I thought I’d never get through airport security with it.Tovey will have to pay about 103 bucks for a new passport and it appears that Buster is going to get a stern talking to.
