Fetching toys? Good. Fetching rocks? Bad. Very, very bad.

Major loves doing what Labradors do: He retrieves things. But one game of fetch ended at the veterinarian when the persistent pooch dived, muzzle-first, into a rock. The incident required five tooth extractions for Major.

 

Pet tip: Monitor pets during play time. Also, check the area and institute short breaks when pets get too rambunctious.
