Dangerous toy - please read

I just saw this on another forum (non-dog related) that I visit. I hope posting it here is o.k.

Oh my goodness. That's a horrible injury! I'm glad they were able to save Chai, but without a tongue, I can't imagine what a horrible way to live that would be. I didn't see her say anything specific about how well he adjusted to eating and drinking without one, but it didn't sound like it could have ended up well - even after the removal.

Thanks for the warning, Hedy.

Oh, how sad! Thank you for the warning, Hedy... I am going to go and check Roxie's balls now and see if she has anything like this product and pass this link along to my friends and family.

Wow, what a horrific thing to have happen!
I can't believe that Four Paws is just ignoring the matter.
I'm supporting the boycott and I'll pass the information along to all of my friends that have dogs.

That's just horrible. I will definitely steer clear of any Four Paws balls or any that are similarly made. Thanks for sharing.
