WARNING! Zoku Quick Pop Maker

I never imagined a problem like this, so I'm sharing this warning...
The kids had knocked a freezer shelf down so I took all the goods off the shelf so I could put it back in place.  All of a sudden, my dog was flailing around and thumping one of these things

(the Zoku Popsicle Maker) on the ground.  Like the little boy in A Christmas Story who stuck his tongue to a frozen flagpole, my puppy stuck his tongue on the frozen Zoku Quick Pop Maker and could not get free.  Once I figured out what was going on, I held him in place and he quickly got his tongue free on his own.  It was a scary couple of seconds.  The Zoku is designed to freeze anything inside its' metal core very quickly.  It can freeze a Popsicle from liquid and warm to frozen hard in under 10 minutes.  It could freeze a puppy tongue pretty quickly, too.  Warm water would have released the dog if he had not gotten free on his own.

The moral of the story, keep the Zoku out of the reach of pets and probably small children while you are at it, especially anyone who might succumb to a triple dog dare.
