Robertson said William was wrestling with his dog over a squeaky toy.

"I squeezed it just as the dog jumped on me and it fell," said William. "Every time I breathed, it would happen to squeak."

So, what happened the toy just jumped in his mouth and down his throat? What a fool! I hope he has learned his lesson not to put objects in his mouth! He deserves a nickname for such stupidity. He is very lucky that he made it thru this!

The whole toy didn't jump in his mouth, just the squeaker thing which is about the size of a 38 caliber bullet, kind of small.
They usually are not glued in or anything and pop out if the squeezing is too energetic.
If the kid was on his back wrestling the dog for the toy, it could pop out and get sucked into a lung if he's inhaling to laugh some more.
Doubt very much he put a dog's squeaky toy in his mouth because of the dog slobber (gross).

I think he put the squeaker in his mouth and someone smacked him on the back. That's what I would say happened, not that we was wrestling with a five pound dog.

This would make a nice entry into the family history storytelling for many years to come.

A 13-year old wrestling with the family dog? It's not hard at all to imagine how the squeaker could have ended up in his lung. Calling him a fool is, well, it's idiotic.

Sounds like the family has a good sense of humor about the situation. Good for them!

Back in the 60's, you could go into a convenience store (or find the ad in the back of comic books) and buy a "Throw your voice" gag toy. It was actually the little piece from a squeak toy.
