I bought the kids tennis balls today (dog ones) but I worry they are going to choke. I saw an episode of Rescue911 where a dog was rescued after choking on a tennis ball. How much of a worry is that? Should I get up and comb the backyard for the one I couldn't find tonight?

The Air Kong made from tennis ball matierial are destroyed faster than regular tennis balls by the roommates dog.

The regular Kong toys made from Kong matterial I will swear by.

My dog dosent seem to "pop" tennis balls or such things but the roommates dog will shred them in short order and eat them.

Saje i had a neighbor call me and say "i just saw your dog s*** a tennis ball.." when i checked, shorenuff was true. We had a tennis court behind us and charlie would try to sneak the balls into the house. Since he also liked to throw them up in the air and barrel after them, that was something u just didn't allow indoors..i had a coffee table with several lovely pieces of raku pottery i had made, i had a lot of nice things once..o d well..u never know where a tennis ball can go......
Thanks Gustav..the trickly part for me is to not pay too much attention to him..i am not sure letting him spend the night was wise, he slept on one side and vic on the other..their noses were side by side crossing me...this morning when i took him home mom called him and he ignored her,,she called him again,,same thing..i told him to get his black behind in here and he trotted right over so i will have to keep a bit of a distance. It is hard to do..but i imagine time will fix it, it does most things in my life. It is not easy when they all want to be my dog..in order for my daughter to have the relationship with Tatey that she had i did the same thing..let the love come from her, taking a back seat is never easy, but oh so necessary.

A friends pit bull would swallow many things whole, tennis balls where common she would get a real funny look on her face when it was time to return them to the lawn. Bailey chews them up first.

ROFL! Dogs and tennis balls. Purdue would lay there for hours, just mashing one flat over and over and over in his mouth. He had the most awesome jaw and neck muscles I've ever seen on a Shepherd, and I think it had a lot to do with his tennis ball exercises.

So, Master Shaffer is learning what it's like to be able to act his age instead of his owners! That's wonderful. It works out well, too, that he's used to living with an older woman so he knows how to treat your Mom.

Glad everything is going so well with Mr. Schaffer! I'm really happy that your mom has his company too!
