    Hello! I'm not really sure if this is where I should put this topic, but it was my best guess.

    I was out with my girls today while they were foraging, and my RSL managed to snatch up a little shard of hard plastic before I could stop her. None of the others got into it - managed to grab some out of my jersey's mouth before she swallowed it and I picked the rest of it up (I didn't realize it was there).

    Will she be OK, will it pass through without issues, do you think? I'll be keeping an eye on her, I'm just worried since the edges of the other pieces seemed so sharp and she is my special girl. :(
