SOUNDBITE: LOIS MATYKOWSKI, DOG OWNER, SAYING: "I look in the paper towel and here is my wedding ring. I kid you not. My wedding ring was in Tucker's puke." SOUNDBITE: LOIS MATYKOWSKI, DOG OWNER, SAYING: "Friends have said I want a dog that throws up diamonds. Who doesn't right?" Tucker's vet says the popsicle stick may have helped dislodge the ring. SOUNDBITE: LOIS MATYKOWSKI, DOG OWNER, SAYING: "So I have my wedding ring back. And Tucker is big dog on campus right now. He's my hero." A four-legged hero who gave back a treat bigger than a bone.
