Who Eats Balls from China?

…Apparently, my dog.

Against my better judgement, I let Timmy take his new ball into his crate with him when we went to bed last night.  I figured it would help him be quiet in his bed, and keep him a bit entertained.  He had never ingested anything or gotten sick from chewing stuff before.  Until last night. 

I woke up around 1:30 to the sounds of retching.  Upon inspection I saw he had barfed in his crate.  I put the stuff in the wash and everything was fine.  But he puked again, and again.  In all, 13 times the poor guy got sick.  The culprit?  He had eaten his new ball into pieces, in the process swallowing some as well.  Luckily it seems that most of the pieces were recovered.

Finally, around 3 am, he was feeling better…enough to beg to be let onto the bed, tail wagging.  We let him sleep with us, and miraculously, he slept the whole night through…well, what was left of it anyway.

Lesson learned?  No chew toys when left unsupervised!!!
