Re: Kong hazards?
If dogs want to hurt themselves, they can be very creative. At the end of he day there is no dog-proof toy, crate, house, anything, and a stuck tongue (stitches included) is the lessen of my worries. I had a dog you could leave with any toy and she would be fine, they would last months and she never swallowed pieces, with Diabla I use the same toys we used with the polar bears when I worked at he zoo, and only under supervision. You have to know your dog.
Dogs will keep inventing new ways to hurt themselves every day with every new thing in the world. Sticks hurt hundreds of dog mouths every day and yet wolves manage to survive in the woods, if cases like Chai were 10 every year I would start to be concerned, if not, is a sad accident. Diabla ripped her lower lip playing with a rope toy, lots of blood and until today the lip hangs in an odd way, but it isn't the toy fault, it just happens.
