COLUMBIA - A one and a half year old lab mix named Boots tried to grab a piece of paper that was going through a paper shredder while his owner was right next to him.  Boot's tongue got stuck in the shredder.

His owner says after barking loudly, Boots pulled his head back and pulled the shredder off and its stand and out of the electrical cord. Boots then took off running inside the house and created what the owner says looked like a murder scene.

Boots has been able to make a quick recovery after going through surgery and rehab but it has been a change for the family.

The MU Vet Hospital doctors told the family Boots would be able to make a full recovery. They strongly encouraged them to give boots a chance when they were ready to have him put to sleep.
