I've never been one to play frisbee with my dogs.
I would have never guessed tossing the ball the way we do(more like bowling than throwing it up into the air) could have had these consequences though.
Granted it was a freak accident, but there are those that purposely throw the ball up in the air, just to see how high their dog can jump

Oh what a horrible accident. I had no idea a dog could die like that. You have my deepest sympathy.

Dang... timed out & won't let me edit the above.
I meant to say I agree with you, Lee, regarding the frisbee thing.
I'm also hoping that by reading Ark's story, it may make some people(like those mentioned above) a bit more cautious and careful.

How tragic. I'm sorry for the loss of your beloved Ark. These dogs are really special, our bond with them is deep.

Thank you for sharing the story of what happened. This has been logged in my memory bank. I remember when Emoore shared the story of her Cash dying from the ball lodging in his throat during play. I threw away those type of balls in our house, switched to those balls on a rope, larger size.

I really regret it was your boy who had to tell this story but I will certainly be cautious because of it.

RIP Ark.

I am SO sorry for your loss. Bug is a full throttle high flying guy- he will throw his own toy in the air and leap for it. We are ALWAYS scared. We eliminated all balls and now have a few stuffed things and a tire we roll. I am so sad and scared to hear my greatest fear has come to fruition for you. May your memories bring you comfort in thsi difficult time.

I am so sorry for your great loss of Ark. It is definitely a horrible, freak accident that you wouldn't even think could occur. He was a beautiful boy.
