This is a true story sent to a friend of mine. Please be aware, as you scroll down to view the photos in this article, that they are very graphic. The point is to get the word out to pet owners who still may have this dangerous toy in their homes or yard. The manufacturer has since taken this "toy" off the market. Also, pet stores such as Petco and Petsmart have also taken it off their shelves. The toy was manufactured by a company called Four Paws, Inc. It is called the "Pimple Ball with Bell" Item #207227-001. It is easy for dogs to get their tongue's stuck inside. And, since there is only the one hole in the ball, a vacuum is created and the dog cannot get his tongue out and it can swell, as was the case in this situation. This dog and family experienced much pain and suffering, not to mention, $5000.00 in veterinarian bills and "Chai" the beautiful lab mix in these photos lost his tongue. He now has to be fed by hand by his owners, twice each day, which takes 90 minutes at each feeding. Several others have also reported the same thing happened to their dogs while playing with this toy, without such quite disasterous results, thank God. Remember, the photos are graphic but this story needs to be told! We don't want this to ever happen to another precious animal, so please forward this story to all of your pet loving friends and family. To end on an up note, please check out two of my, and my dogs, Charlie and Gracie's favorite shows, The Dog Whisperer and Doggtown both on The National Geographic Channel.
