Death in a potato chip bag - we lucked out!

In my puppy packet I have a warning in big, red letters on the danger of chip bags.

I know of at least 3 Cardigans who have suffocated in potato chip bags. For this reason, as we start to eat the bag of chips, I trim the bag length down as we go. (It also makes it easier as you are not sticking your arm down to the bottom of the bag.) When I dispose of a bag in the garbage, I slice it down lengthwise.

And no matter how careful one can be, it only takes a moment with our vacuum cleaner breed.

Yesterday I was laying in bed, watching TV and resting my back. I had finished the last of my chips, in a half cut down bag when the phone rang. As I gimped to the desk to answer it, I left the empty half bag behind. I was just a few seconds into our conversation when I turn and look - and there is Zsa Zsa with the half bag over her head and she could NOT get it off! I hung up the phone and was able to get it off of her right away.

I break into tears thinking what could have happened if I took the phone into the kitchen and brewed a cup of coffee. And I keep thanking G-d, over and over, for sparing her.

Isn't he just adorable? Flaxen chestnut is my favorite color and the tobiano splashes are icing on the cake. I think he may be my new hobby - with an escape to a beautiful farm a couple days a week, and may be I can parade him around at a show now and then. We will make the final decision soon.

Go Leonard, Go Zsa Zsa!

My wonderful DH was a good sport today. He showed Miss Zsa Zsa at our first match of the season. They did very well, bringing home Best Adult in Match! It was only the second time he ever showed a dog. Unfortunately he would not pose for a photo.

I am looking for interesting ideas for litter themes, and we have had much success with movie titles.

In the past we have had an Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart & Elvis litters. I am not sure if I should keep in the tradition of deceased actors/actresses. We do have a couple living actors in the poll as they are eye candy. And reminiscing, Tristan was named for Brad Pitt and Cole for Tom Cruise.

A good site to see what movies those in my poll have been in is the International Movie Data Base.

Disclaimer: Personal preference in the end may win out over the poll, but let's have some fun!

An Award!

We've been awarded the master of karate and friendship award by Amy at Crazy Cardiness blog! Thank you, Amy!

It was REALLY HARD to decide who to send this on too. I wish I could pick more than 3. I would like to pass this along to
Russ & Sherilyn at Winjammin Waves
Taryn at A Tail Of Two Cardis
Laura at Cooper Creek
