Wow, you hear about freak collar accidents and believe them on one level but it's not the same UNTIL it happens to you! Ruby was sniffing around in a flower bed and it seemed like she had been there awhile so I started to walk over to check her out. As I was almost there, she lifts here head up really slowly and is carrying this 13 lb stupid yard ornament by the tag on her collar! She didn't panic or anything but I was in shock at the potential of this if she were ever left unattended outside (which we never do)!..... She's in a martingale, too, (another lesson I've read about) with a bone-shapped tag that just fit perfectly into the little chimney hole.

She has also gotten her foot stuck in a trapezoidal caribeaner that was attached to her collar on a front yard tieout!!

Good lord! Poor thing. Glad you were being responsible and supervising her!

Whoa! That is freaky. I don't like the bone-shaped tags. Murphy apparently got his stuck in the crate bars (I know he shouldn't wear his collar in there). He was terrified of his crate for a while. I was :|

A couple days later, I found his tag with the link all stretched out between the wall and his crate.

Glad to hear everything worked out!

When my older girl used to wear her collar indoors (neither of the dogs do now) she would always get her tags stuck in the heater floor vents because she liked to lay on top of them. It always freaked me out to see her try to get up and not be able to! :shock:
