About a year ago my windpipe blew up in my throat. I was always on a choker collar for walks. I tugged really, really hard ’cause I was anxious to smell. I only went for a walk once a week. Even though I was walked infrequently, my windpipe still shattered and exploded in my throat. I died two weeks later, because my owner could not afford the surgery for an artificial, plastic windpipe. Please walk your dog with a harness if you want them to live.
I used to go for walks everyday of the week. I had a choke collar that I wore every time. After about three years my windpipe collapsed and I was not able to breathe properly through my nose or mouth and it obstructed my regular speaking voice. Please let your dog wear a harness when you go for a walk. It could save their life.
I used these sounds from the freesound.org project to make this piece:
