A Dog's Life

Here is a story from the Chicago Tribune that is full of local flavor, so to speak. We have just finished our visit from the 17-year cicada. See the pictures I posted here. Turns out dogs love to eat these critters. But, they are big and crunchy. So, dogs are advised to chew their cicadas. Otherwise, they could end up like Champ, U.S. Customs and Border Protection narcotics dog at O'Hare airport. Champ had a near-death experience after choking on cicadas but was saved by the quick action of his CBP handler and O'Hare paramedics. This story, it seems turned out better than the last CBP dog story I posted. Eddie appears to still be missing.
