For All Dog Owners...

Just ran across this story about Chai the dog and his terrible toy. If your doggy has one these balls THROW IT AWAY! [Four Paws Inc, Pimple ball with bell. (Item #20227-001, UPC Code 0 4566320227 9) ] Read the whole story.

P.S. He did make it through alive but has some major problems to work through.

It's a simple fact that not all toys are safe for all dogs. We would never have bought this toy for our dog because, based on the looks of it, she'd have torn it up and swallowed it in chunks, causing some sort of blockage.

Those supposedly indestructible, even by the biggest meanest dogs, Kong toys. Yeah, our 33 pound Australian cattle dog can destroy them. And swallow them, because she uses her intelligence for dumb.

For this pimple ball, I'm thinking you don't have to throw it away; you just have to drill a hole in the side to make it a better non-vacuum. Also, as the instructions on each toy says: supervise your dog.
