Landon has a special safety message today for all of his canine pals about the danger of exploding collars – and photos of the aftermath.
Long-time readers know why we wear break-away collars (Amazon Affiliate Link), but we will do a quick recap. Many years ago, Rusty and Natasha were wrestling when Rusty’s jaw became caught in Natasha’s collar. Hu-Dad was sitting just feet away, but Rusty nearly broke his jaw and Natasha nearly choked to death before Hu-Dad could cut away the collars. In researching, Hu-Dad discovered that death by choking on regular collars is more common than you might think, so we were immediately switched to break-away collars.
There is just one problem with such collars – they break away. Yes, that is what they are designed to do, but if a certain young dog happens to break his apart while waiting on Hu-Dad, the collar can become available for entertainment purposes.
Landon did his absolute best to explain to Hu-Dad that it was a spontaneous explosion and the collar was absolutely not chewed. Despite the teeth marks. And the dog slobber. And the fact that he was caught with the collar in his mouth.
For some odd reason, Hu-Dad did not buy the story.
