Kayos and Havoc Awww poor you guys! I know you do feel bad but it happens and he will recover. My Kayos is 11.5 and I think this is old dogs becasue every old dog I have had does this.

It seems they want to step into the path of the ball when I throw it. I wonder if they do not see as well adnndo not want to miss it. I have beaned her with a ball more times than I can count lately. I probably need to stop playing fetch with the others when she is out.

blackshep The best thing about dogs is their capacity to forgive. They don't hold a grudge.

It was an accident, don't beat yourself up.

lovemygirl I got halfway through this thread going, Okay, is my dog secretly stupid, does she not feel pain? - but it must be because I always react with a "whoooopsie daisy!"

The worst that's happened was when I went through the front door to the complex and popped it open like I normally do so that it stays open for, I don't know, 10-15 seconds for Hildy to get through. I walked through, popped it open, moved on to next door - apparently she'd started focusing on something outside and started to try to come in at the last second and before I'd had a chance, the door had whacked her on the head. That's why we walk in heel, Hildy. She looked at the door a bit suspiciously the next couple of times but that was all.

NancyJ This is where I put in my plug for NOT throwing sticks. I personally know too many dogs who have had trips to the dog ER due to sticks. (having it penetrate their throat or roof of the mouth)............

I also don'w throw around trees anymore either. That one cost me $1000 and the top row of incisors. FWIW, dog kept wanting to play ball with blood pouring out of his mouth.

04-04-2014 09:11 PM I remember when my kids were little, I was teaching them how to skip stones
across the pond, when my little guy stepped right in front of me. well he got it right in the noggin (blood everywhere). So I know how you feel, he left screaming not because it hurt, rather he didn't want to leave the park, lol. accidents happen, nothing you can do about it, so hang in there

Wild Wolf I've smacked Hunter in the mouth with his training ball before... he made a tiny yelp but was more concerned with me throwing the ball then the fact it kinda hurt. He forgave me in less than one second, so it's okay... haha.

Traveler's Mom I've got one for you! We live in Florida and generally the sliding door into the Florida room is open. When Traveler was a pup we had a big strip of blue painters tape at his eye level. After a couple of years, my DH took it off thinking we didn't need it any more.

BAM! Traveler goes face first full run into the glass. Traveler looked surprised and didn't want to be near me for an hour or so but that was the extent of his attitude. I cried like a baby for hours.

After DH ran into it himself, he decided to put the tape back on the glass

Lilie No different when two dogs are playing rough and one gets injured. They yelp and might sulk a moment and then continue to play.

We always feel much worse than the dog ever could. And the dog always forgives. Always.
