Cheri Blair let her dog, a Portuguese Podengo, out for a walk on Monday morning, The Sun reports. She says when the dog didn’t immediately return to the house, she went out looking for it and found it with a strange bone.

According to The Sun, she explained, "I went down there and it was one of those ones that you have to go to a pet store to get, like a freeze-dried bone, quite big."
