I found her eating it, she was fine in herself but thought best to phone the vet and they said to take her down. I took what was left with me to the vet, the pieces are very sharp,

The vet just called they can see pieces in her stomach which look sharp so they are not happy letting them pass through, so are going to sedate her completely (she had light sedation for the xrays) and see if they can get them out using an endoscope and bring them out through her mouth they will call back and let me know if that is successful. I know she will be fine but it doesn't stop me worrying and as usual when something happens Garry is out of the country and haven't been able to contact him.

Oh, please keep us posted! Endoscopy would be much better than surgery!
Was Honey trying to give you her opinion on Tiger Woods ? (Sorry, I couldn't resist)

Sending a hug for you both, hope you can reach Garry soon, too

Oh no!! I've heard of dogs swallowing golf balls but never chewing them first ... I bet they are sharp. Aren't they made of like fiberglass or something?

Oh you poor dear, I'll be waiting for news.

Maribeth -- hahahaha! Yes, that's it ... send the bill to Tiger! :p:

Seriously, I hope Honey is okay!!

My son made the Tiger Woods reference when I called him he said something about that was one hell of a swing I didn't get it at first:doh:

The inner ball looks like a very dense composite I couldn't believe that she could have broken pieces off and the outer is plastic I assume.
Honey will be staying in overnight neither Jade or I are happy with this Jade is wandering round looking for her little tormentor. :confused:

The inside is a solid ball they used to be made of rubber bands but now they are a solid composite material but how did one get in my garden unless a bird dropped it nearest golf course is 5 miles away.
