Keep Plastic Bags Away from Dogs!

02 September 2013 ~ 5 Comments

Plastic bags kill! Sadly, too many dogs owners know this. Most recently, the very cute and young Apple of my Pi lost his life when he suffocated with a bag. His dad found him between the couch and the wall with a bag on his head, but he found him too late. My heart breaks for Pi’s parents. He would’ve been 6 months old today. May he rest in peace!

RIP Pi

It seems to me that Corgis are more susceptible to this freak accident happening to them, because they can’t reach up and paw off things off of their heads with those short legs. It only takes a few minutes for the poor dog to suffocate when a bag is stuck on his head. It’s a horrible accident that can be easily prevented, if you take the right precautions! It pays off to be a little paranoid, believe me, I know it first-hand.

First of all, never ever leave bags laying around the house. We all know that if a Corgi wants something, he will get to it. That’s why your home should be bag-free! The garbage can should be locked up, too. Also, a good way to make sure that no bags (grocery bags, chips bags, even dog food bags) will hurt your fur-baby is to cut off their bottom.

Please, let your family and friends know that this is a real threat and can happen to anybody if precautions are not taken! Take care of your dogs, they depend on you for their well-being!
