NOTE: This was originally posted by "chattycathy1200" on Thu, 04/28/2011 - 11:07 entitled "Yorkie", but somehow ended up in the Reptile Forum area under "Care, Health". It's interesting information that I didn't know and felt others could benefit so I'm re-posting here --
"Another tip... do not use the traditional hanging tags on your yorkie. Get a collar with an information "plate". I came home one time and found Lucy caught in my deck flapping around..I had never thought of that but I guess Ive been told thousands of dogs die this way every year. I couldnt find them in any pet store I ordered one online for $12 inc shipping. Hope it helps too. Cathy"
