Wow, we achieve a really big milestone today! Our Canine CPR lens is the 4th top ranked lens overall, and the #1 ranked lens in the Animals and Nature category on Squidoo today! Woo, hoo!
There are over 500,000 lenses on Squidoo. To be ranked this high is an incredible honor.
In August of 2007, we created this lens in honor of our great blogging friend, Tish and her pup Cruella. Because, in February of 2007, Tish and Cruella had a really big scare. Cruella choked on a piece of hot dog and couldn't breath.
Tish told the story on her blog, "Cruella became disoriented and started to stumble around the room. I started screaming, and I continued to whack her between the shoulders, hoping to dislodge the food." Every time I read Tish's post about this terrifying night, I start to get those scary chills and go over and hug my Mum. It really makes me scared and at the same time grateful that I'm alive.
Recently, Tish attended a Red Cross training and became certified in pet first aid and cpr. It's an incredibly important and life saving program they offer, and Tish's program only cost $25.00.
Please, sign up for a first aid training course near you, as soon as you can. Your pups life is too important, and you just never know when something can go terribly wrong. What you know may be just the help your pup needs in times of crisis.
