Betty, a Staffordshire bull terrier, was forced to undergo emergency surgery to remove the arrow after it became lodged halfway through her body from the oesophagus to the small intestine. Her owner Emma Watson, 38, from Swanley in Kent, believes her pet found the item after disappearing into her seven-year-old daughter Lilly-Jay's playhouse when a gust of wind opened the door. She heard coughing and spluttering and rushed in, but saw nothing untoward after the incident in May. The following day however, Betty, eight months old began vomiting and went off her food.
