i was 13 and my neck bones 'calcified' and disintegrated..mommy still feels so guilty because i used to yank on the leash to say hello to everyone and i was also on a (supervised) run and chased the groundhog and 'pinged' at the end of my collar. she did not think about how delicate my bones were and yes, 13 is a pretty good run..but damage is damage and with a harness there is NONE!
i enjoyed charging to tell the world i was it's ruler and i loved to chase the groundhog right into his hole at the shed door..we did not realize there ARE physical ramifications. i was in terrible pain when my bones crumbled, mommy walked me in her arms singing to me in the middle of the night, i was on pred and painkillers for weeks and had numerous vet consults for naught..
if you pull or yank on your collar, please get a harness and you can all AVOID that terrible time we suffered.
