Meet Star, a little dog from Blackpool who seems to have a taste for stones.

The Jack Russell terrier's owners became worried about her after she stopped eating and could hardly move.

When they took her to the vets an X-ray showed she had swallowed 80 stones!

The stones were making her really poorly and the vet had to give her emergency surgery to save her life.

Star's owners have now removed all the stones from their garden!
