Laundry Retrieved from Retriever

When Bailey the retriever went to the veterinary clinic in Corfe Mullen, Dorset, England, the doctor thought he had a tumor. What veterinarian Keith Moore found inside the dog was five golf gloves, ten socks, one stocking, and part of a towel!
"Vets obviously do a fair number of foreign object removals but I doubt I will ever see anything like this again in my career.

“Even for us, from a vet’s point of view, it was pretty amazing.

“It was like doing a magic trick. We were just pulling out one sock after another,” he joked.

Moore believes Bailey must have been eating laundry for years to accumulate such a mass. The dog has fully recovered from surgery and acts like a puppy again. Link -via Arbroath

This article claims that objects remained in this dog's digestive tract for several years.

How ? Any suggestions ? This sounds like crap to pun intended.
