Wayne Klinkel tells the Independent Record he doesn't carry a wallet on his… chiropractor's advice.
Sundance, his 12-year-old golden retriever, ate the bills during a visit the Klinkels' daughter in Denver last Christmas.
Sundance was left alone in the car with five $100 bills and a $1 bill when they stopped for dinner.
The dog dined on the $100 bills, but left the dollar.
Klinkel says he collected fragments from the dog's droppings. His daughter found more when the snow melted.
He says he washed the remnants of the bills and sent them taped together to the Treasury Department in hopes of having them replaced
