A good friend of mine knows someone at work who lost their Corgi. The neighbor kid left a bag in their yard after she finished off some cheese crackers and the dog found it. They found the dog too late.
Thank you so much for this reminder. You just can't say it often enough. And I just hate for someone else to lose a corgi or any beloved pet because of something easily preventable.
This can happen to ANY dog, cat or animal, not just corgis. Be careful with all bags. Even if you don't have your furbaby yet, something in your trash could get into the environment.
It was about 10 years ago one of our beloved Corgi's went out back to do his duty and found a light weight plastic bag, it was like a dry cleaning bag that must have blown into our back yard, the bag had some cookie crumbs at the very bottom of the bag, and like a curious Corgi he managed to get his head into the bag, after about 10 minutes there was an eerie silence, this is the hard part…I went out back to see what he was up to and there he was lying motionless…My heart stopped beating and I just fell apart...It only took a few moments for him to suffocate. Probably the saddest day of my life….Please take heed to this warning. I have another Corgi and every day I am on the alert of plastic bags or any trash that could cause any harm to my best friend…..Ina & Scootie"
I posted a note about this on my FB page, hoping to reach other people to prevent this from happening to their dogs, as well.
We have lost too many of our corgi kids to food bags. This reminder cannot be said enough. The couple of seconds extra it takes to cut/tear a hole in bags is nothing compared to the pain of losing your corgi will tear in your heart.
To all those who have lost their furbabies to food bags, their passing will remind others and continue to make changes to prevent this from happening again. It's a painful lesson that I know my husband and I have taken to heart. My heart breaks for all of you and I've shed many tears each time this tragic story is posted. Know that their stories have made an impact on our lives and we have made changes. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Please, everyone, read and remember all this important information John is posting. It saves lives.
Such a tragedy. I know your hearts are torn in pieces. I'd never get over that had it been me. I'm fortunate in that Bubba is afraid of bags! He too loves Doritos and we were sitting on the couch one evening snacking on them and he was snuggled righ against my righ hip. I accidentally dropped the bag in the floor and he nearly cleared the coffee table in fron of us getting away from the monstrous red bag. Unfortunately, others have no fears.
They're just like kids and you have to treat them accordingly. whether they're six months or six years. My condolences to you on this tragic loss and if your post saves just one life as a result of someone's attention being drawn to this, it was worth your time to post it. May your hearts heal and mend quickly and only enjoy the photos anad precious memories.
Thank you for this reminder.
John this has made such an impression on my husband he scolds me and goes through the rant each time he finds a bag in our trash , which is in a pull out draw .. He says Carly knows how to get it open if she pushes it hard enough and then she can jump up and grab the stuff top , which may be a bag... Im pretty good at cutting them but sometimes i get in a hurry ..
We cant HURRY, when i read about another tragedy i didnt tell him or id be hearing the lecture again .. but believe me im taking heed ...
Yes, thank you. I really had no idea about this until I joined this site and I'm so glad I did. So very tragic to have this happen to any dog.
