The incident took the life of three year old Carson while Sullivan was away.<!--break-->“On August 16 as I was getting around at home I got an emergency phone call about one of my clients (she’s a nurse) and had to leave right away,” said Sullivan. “When I arrived back at home I thought it was strange that Carson didn’t come to greet me at the door with my other dog.”It was only after some searching that Sullivan found Carson laying under a table. He was unresponsive and had his head stuck in a pet food bag. Sullivan always put the food bag away, however, due to the emergency call this time she didn’t.“I felt like I had let him down. I was suppose to protect him,” Sullivan said.Those feelings led Sullivan to reach out and warn others about the dangers of pet suffocation.“I was dumbfounded. It wasn’t something I ever thought about before. Simple things like cutting the bag can help prevent this from happening to someone else,” added Sullivan.Online research led Sullivan to a website all about preventing pet suffocation. The site, www.preventpetsuffication.com, is where Sullivan met Bonnie Harlan. Harlan had lost her dog, Blue, in December of 2011 when he suffocated in a Cheetos bag. “In the summer of 2013 I documented 75 dogs who suffocated, 50 of which were from chip bags,” said Harlan. “In 2014, I have already documented over 50 dogs who have suffocated, again the vast majority in chip bags. When someone loses their beloved dog to pet suffocation, they are devastated and shocked- shocked because the majority have no idea that chip bags and other food packaging like pet food bags, cereal bags and popcorn bags pose suffocation risks to their pets.”The website currently has a petition to Frito-Lay to add suffocation warning labels to their chip bags. It also includes information about how to help prevent pet suffocation. Tips such as cutting up bags, keeping trash can lids tightly fastened and learning pet CPR.There are also links to articles about suffocation risks for pets, Blue’s blog and a special page donated to memorial photos. Harlan is currently working on obtaining a non-profit status for the organization.Plymouth, INDiona Eskew Food bags can be a deadly hazard for petsThe Pilot Newsurn:publicid:dailypress.com:23497Change0Usable2014-10-17T12:44:07-04:00 urn:publicid:dailypress.com:23496Delivery delay2014-10-17T12:14:31-04:002014-10-17T12:14:31-04:00Copyright 2010 The Pilot NewsPlymouth, INNo author availableDelivery delayThe Pilot Newsurn:publicid:dailypress.com:23496Change0Usable2014-10-17T12:14:31-04:00 urn:publicid:dailypress.com:23488Marshall County Commissioners meeting, October 202014-10-16T16:12:04-04:002014-10-16T16:12:04-04:00Copyright 2010 The Pilot NewsThe Marshall County Commissioners will hold their regular meeting October 20, 2014.Marshall County CommissionersProposed Agenda – October 20, 20149:30 am Public Hearing – 3B Road vacationOrdinance #2014-109:45 am Chuck DeWitt – Building InspectorQuarterly update10:00 am Highway Report - Laurie Baker10:15 am County Attorney Report – Jim Clevenger10:30 am Auditor ReportMinutes – October 6, 2014October mid-month claimsCommissioner items2015 meeting schedule Public Comments Adjournment Plymouth, INNo author availableMarshall County Commissioners meeting, October 20The Pilot Newsurn:publicid:dailypress.com:23488Change0Usable2014-10-16T16:12:04-04:00 urn:publicid:dailypress.com:23487Marshall County Drainage Board, October 20 agenda2014-10-16T14:52:00-04:002014-10-16T14:52:00-04:00Copyright 2010 The Pilot NewsMarshall County Drainage BoardOctober 20, 2014Proposed Agenda 8:30am Newcomb-Eisenhour Ditch VanVactor Farms –Re: 1-22-08 Correction 8:40am Miscellaneous Business Minutes September 15, 2014 Other Business ADJOURNMENT Plymouth, INNo author availableMarshall County Drainage Board, October 20 agendaThe Pilot Newsurn:publicid:dailypress.com:23487Change0Usable2014-10-16T14:52:00-04:00 urn:publicid:dailypress.com:23485Prepared for Ebola?
