Good news! Not a joint or sprain...just a muscle pull on his..tricep? The muscle across the front of his chest to shoulder. 2 weeks only walks, no jumping or real work. The vet also advised (and I agree) ...they dont fetch when ball is in the air. Release them once ball is on the ground. Like send out style. That way they arent looking skyward while running full tilt. I have learned...

I drove an hour to go to a vet that works her dogs in IGP. Worth the trip because I feel like they "get it"

I never never never release my dog when the ball is in the air. That's how dogs get balls jammed in their throats.

I throw it, let it land, let them build drive waiting for the release and then...GO!

Rest him well! Can't wait till June!

Thanks! Definitely, lesson learned. I've also retired the Chuck It. It doesn't need to go 100 yards lol

This will force me to dedicate the needed time to tracking. It just doesn't light me up for some reason. Thanks again all
