Disclaimer! As soon as Ziggy put this in his mouth I took it away from him so he wouldn't choke. I don't recommend letting dogs play with shell casings, but when I saw him approach the casing I had to snap a few quick pictures because it is so typical Ziggy. And as for why there was an empty shell casing in my yard for Ziggy to find, I think Dave (my Army soldier husband) might be responsible. We'll be having a talk about this when he comes back from his latest drill!
