Jade is your typical pup. The Shawnee, Oklahoma dog is skilled in the art of balance and fetch, but what she lacks is self control, and duck just hits the spot.

More than a week ago Jade fell under the weather.

"She was getting sick, couple days throwing up, then we started seeing it progressively getting worse," said Bailey Blagg, Jade's owner. "So we took her to the vet."

"We suspected with all puppies, we always do a parvo test, it came up negative," explained Dr. Daina Iman, with the Shawnee Animal Hospital. "I said, let's go ahead and do a scope."

Not long after, doctors knew what they were up against.

"They found rubber duckies in the stomach," said Iman. 

Veterinarians performed surgery and pulled three rubber duckies from Jade's stomach. 

Jade has since been patched up and is recovering well. (KFOR)
