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.
