I'm uploading pictures, as the snopes link doesn't show just how horrific this is:

Ouch! I've had a dog for most of my life . . . and sometimes regret not havin' one now. 'Til I see a story like this anyway.

Thanx for letting us know abt this one.

Thank you so much for posting that story.With the new puppy in the house we had looked at a few balls like that and now know we will never get anything like that.I wonder if that could happen with the kong items as they need to stick their tonques in there to get the treats as well as chew it.That poor pup. :cry:

That is just dreadful. :evil: That poor, poor dog. I don't have a dog, but I'm going to pass this along to my niece who does.

Unforunately, we assume that these toys are OK for our pets. I'll be looking twice before I get any more for Kelsy.

I don't have a dog but oh my this is such a sad thing

I printed it off and gave it to people I know with dogs including daughter who has 3

I never noticed the dog's toys before I read this. But yes they have one of those balls which I took and burnt

Thanks for telling us skwij

This i a terrible thing to happen
