Oh no.

I'm so very sorry for your loss! What a beautiful boy he was. It's so hard to lose them so suddenly.

My thoughts and prayers go out to you!

RIP Ark

This should never happen. It just should never happen. My heart goes out to you.

RIP, beautiful Ark!
For those who asked, this was on FB:

Just a reminder to those with dogs that only know one speed... wide open-full throttle. Please take care when playing ball or Frisbee type games with them and try not to let things get out of hand. It only took a spit second, a bad bounce of the ball, and a jump into the air with a crash landing to end Arks life. It's a great responsibility we have on our shoulders, for they give us their hearts.

It was really just a freak accident.
We(DH, DD, & the 3 dogs) were all outside doing normal kennel chores. DD was playing with the dogs & throwing a ball for them like we've all done 100's of times. After one of the tosses the ball bounced off the ground badly & went straight up in the air about 15'. My GSD Ark, who was a wide open/full throttle type, went up in the air after it, which he has on occasion done before. However this time he went straight/vertically up about 5-6' high. He also came back down the same way & landed in a heap. It was one of those things that as you are watching it, you just know it will not end well but are helpless to stop it.
We figure he ruptured the disks in his back & also had internal injuries, based on his symptoms.

I've always worried about ACL tears and such. I never would have imagined the above scenario happening. So even though it was a freak thing, take care when allowing, training, encouraging, etc. your larger dog to jump high(er) into the air after a toy.
