  1. Thank you for this post, Jana. A tearful former vet tech told me the story of her corgi suffocating when we met on a hike in Northern California a few years ago. I had never thought of something like this happening and then I thought it could only happen to short legged dogs. But all breeds are at risk! A pair of scissors and a few seconds can prevent deaths!

    1. Yes, it's not something one thinks about until it happens. Awareness is so important with such things. Potential awful tragedy with such an easy fix.
