We have been guilty of throwing sticks for the dogs in the past but not any more! Not since Mr Taj came back with a bleeding tongue. It was only a tiny nick and nothing compared to what poor jet has been through but it was a wake up call we needed!
Once again I’m sort of a bearer of sad news… not the worst, but sad. A friend shared a post on Joe’s Facebook page .. STICK INJURY . The guy’s story follows at the end of this. I will not add to it other than say that PEOPLE WITH DOGS, NEAR DOGS, LOOKING AFTER A FRIENDS’ DOG, please do not use a piece of tree in any form as a toy for a dog. Throw a frisby, and old tied and knotted rope, a large-ish ball, a dog toy …ANYTHING but sticks and wood.
After over 140000 views on Joe’s story, http://mrsskeats.wordpress.com/2013/12/28/dont-let-another-good-dog-die-needlessly/, numerous views on his facebook page, views tweets and retweets on twitter and word of mouth via other circles I believed naively that people were getting the message. To read those words “ ‘it’ll never happen to me’.“ made me shiver.
