Dogs and blowfish don't mix well

My neighbours returned this morning from a few days holidaying at Jurien Bay.  The sad news was that 'Jackson' their border collie didn't survive the trip.  Very sad, he was a lovely dog.  Whilst fishing with their two young children from a jetty / wharf Jackson ate one or more dead blowfish left on the wharf.  It proved fatal.  The family is understandably devastated.  

Be careful with your treasured pets everyone.

I used to work just at the onshore end of Como jetty and when the wife would come for lunch, she would bring the dog. There were always piles of blowies there. It was her first experience with one as we dragged it backwards out of her mouth...she never touched one again.

 Very sad for the family. I always throw blowies back and watch my dog like a hawk at the beach.
