About Blue

Prevent Pet Suffocation

Blue was our beautiful and loving young rescue-dog who livened up our household with his playful spirit and precocious antics. Sadly, Blue died tragically on December 15, 2011 due to suffocation from a Cheetos chip bag.

When I returned home from the store on December 15th, Blue did not greet me at the door. Searching all over my house, I finally found him upstairs, collapsed under a table, with a Cheetos bag covering his head. I was unable to revive him with CPR.

When an animal puts his head deep into a chip bag, the mylar-like material of the bag creates a vacuum-like suction, and begins to tighten around the animal's neck. As the animal panics and tries to breathe, the suction becomes tighter, suffocating the pet within minutes. It is a devastating way to die!

My goal is to educate the public on the suffocation risks to pets and children from chip bags. I want to get companies like Frito-Lay and other distributors of these snack foods to put warning labels on the bags. Meanwhile, please cut up your chip bags after use!

Please consider making a donation to PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, to help other animals in need. All memorial contributions to PETA help continue its dedicated work on behalf of our animals, who do not have a voice of their own. Any gift that you make will be greatly appreciated!

Please visit my Facebook Page "Prevent Pet Suffocation" which was created to help enlighten others about the dangers of pet suffocation at

Through all of our efforts, we can help raise public awareness on how to better protect our sweet pets, so another dog or cat does not have to die needlessly. Thank you so much!
