Be careful about allowing your dog to chew on wood, bones, or anything
that can get stuck in them.
One day, I came home from work at lunchtime to check on my two dogs.
One of them was making funny faces at me that I had never seen before.
After much patting and checking, I finally discovered why:
She had been chewing on a stick and bit down hard on it. The left half
fell off to the left... the right half fell off to the right... and the
middle half was stuck between her upper teeth!
Luckily, nothing was caught in her throat.
