Default Wow, never thought about this...

A member on another board lost her dog yesterday to a cereal box with a plastic liner. She got in the trash and suffocated when she couldn't get her head out of the cereal box

I'm going to start cutting up my plastic liners.

It's really scary the amount of potential dangers there are. I had a freak accident like that happen to one of my rats and it really opens your eyes to all the seemingly innocuous things that might be lying around.

Very sad There was a girl on a horse board I used to frequent that lost her dog when she got her head stuck in a coffee container and she suffocated.

That's very sad. I'm always happy that my trash can us inside the pantry.

That's so sad. Poor pup! Things like this really scare me... one of the Cardigans on our Flyball team died from suffocating on a cheetos bag.

Baby-proofing cupboards and keeping trash out of reach is pretty effective. I wouldn't go cutting up plastic liners but you can never be too safe! Especially with Corgs.
