PLASTIC BAGS ARE DEADLY TO YOUR DOG!

Losing a dog in any way is one of life's worst experiences.
Losing one this way, must be just devastating.

To err on the side of caution and because I definitely believe in the maxim of
"BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY!" I am passing this along from my sister - the note
about the bullie is hers . . .

We had someone from our list that lost a bullie the same way several years back
with of all things a potato chip bag.....the guilt for these folks is horrific
.....be careful out there!

Please share this info. with everyone you know so that no one else suffers the
way I have.
PLASTIC BAGS ARE DEADLY TO YOUR DOG!
In honor of our precious Ella's memory, I am crusading an effort to let everyone
know that this can and does happen and hopefully I can save someone else from the
same agonizing pain!

Our 9 month old Sheltie puppy, Ella, suffered a tragic, sudden, senseless death
this past Friday. She suffocated to death on a bag liner that was inside a box
of Cheez-its snack crackers. We were out for the evening and someone had left a
box of Cheez-its within Ella's reach. She put her head in the bag inside the box
to get to the crackers. The bag came out of the box but she couldn't get the bag
off of her head. We came home and found her dead from suffocation. It doesn't
seem possible, that a dog couldn't get a bag off their head, but they can't.

I have since learned that this occurs more often than you would imagine. There
was also a family whose 6 year old Labrador got hold of a Doritos bag when they
weren't looking. They found him dead with the bag over his head, having died the
same way as Ella. I also learned from the man that is cremating Ella for us that
he has had FIVE other dogs that have died like this in the PAST MONTH! Make sure
that ALL PLASTIC BAGS AND BOXES WITH BAG LINERS IN THEM (chips, snack crackers,
cookies, cereal, etc.) are WAY out of your pets reach!!!!!!

This tragedy has been a tremendous blow for our family! I have tried to be strong,
but the whole scenario has played out in my head over and over and I have been a
total mess! I cannot begin to understand the senselessness of this and my heart
is absolutely broken! Ella was so young and full of life...an adorable, sweet, smart,
loving dog, and her life was cut short way too soon!

Please help me honor Ella and save someone else from this horrific tragedy by passing
this email to as many people as you know!

Thank you!
