Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

Miss Mia, the chihuahua, loves to hop into laundry baskets…especially when the close and nice and warm and fresh from the dryer. However, she (and her owners) did not realize that with certain types of laundry baskets, this could be a danger. One day, she got her head stuck in the cloth handle. Fortunately we were there to cut her free, and she was fine. Since then, we have clipped the cloth handles off all the baskets of that type. (They are the ones with the long, thin and flimsy handles…not the one in the photo.)

But Miss Mia wanted all her friends to know to be careful with any kinds baskets or bags with floppy handles that could inadvertently wrap around a curious pup’s neck. Furthermore, small pets should be careful not to play in the washing machine or dryer….no matter how tempting it looks.

    Oh she is so cute! My mum put a kitten into the washing machine and turned it in last year, fortunately befor it hit the spin cycle she noticed it. After attention it survived!

  • Thank you!
    That’s scary about the kitten.
    I knew someone whose mom had a similar experience with the dryer and a kitten. That did not turn out so well.

    Look at that cute expression… she really does look like she is saying Be careful… What a sweet face Mia has…

  • Thanks Rhonda!
    What I think her expression is really saying is, “You aren’t going to make me get out of this basket again, are you?” She will jump into any basket, bag or purse that’s handy and give me a look that says, “Let’s Go!”.
