We nearly lost Bailey today. He doesn’t wear a collar at home, but he is staying with our daughter and her Lab, Hugo. They are best friends and play “bitey-face” all the time, but today their collars became stuck and Hugo’s teeth were embedded into Baileys collar. Our daughter tried to separate them but couldn’t. By this time both dogs were screaming and frothing from the mouth. Claire ran next door to ask for help and thankfully, and with a great degree of difficulty, they were able to undo Bailey’s collar. Bailey has some fur missing around his neck and is now collarless-as is Hugo-because they needed to cut his collar too. Our daughter was very upset and shaky but seems ok now. Both dogs recovered well and seem to have no problems. Our daughter Claire and I may take longer to recover! We came so very close to losing him. Please don’t leave collars on while dogs are playing. We’re so thankful that Claire was at home, if she hadn’t been, this story would have had a much worse outcome!
