Dog owners know their beloved pets will eat just about anything---but two pounds of rocks?

Gordon, a Minnesota Golden Retriever, is recovering after getting into rocks in a river garden and devouring 1.79 pounds worth.

His buffet landed him at the veterinarian's office, where he underwent emergency surgery. The surgery took more than two hours, but vets were able to remove all of the rocks.

His owner told CBS affiliate WCCO that the case was "odd" because Gordon always has good food available.

Gordon is expected to make a full recovery.
