Also lost my very first dye, twice.
First time, it went over a fence throwing at a friend's house in the country. One of the neighbor's vicious dogs came and took it away, and I just assumed that was that. Two weeks later, the neighbor returned it, and barely scarred!
Then bergdawg used it to carry the water at Stoney Hill. Alas, it did not carry, and crashed into the murky abyss.
Then a few months later, the Cunninghams were out there and found it, and returned it!
But I don't throw it. :P
