Martha Stewart's New Puppy Dies In a Propane Explosion

Martha Stewart's New Puppy Dies In a Propane Explosion

Now that I'm on Twitter, I've been learning quite a bit about the people I'm following and, sadly, today I learned of a tragic accident. According to Martha Stewart's tweets, her new lil pup Ghenghis Khan passed away. In a "tragic propane explosion," the breeder lost 17 Chows both boarders and residents. Martha was waiting until a good time to bring the babe home from Karen Tracy and, while she didn't say there were any human fatalities, unfortunately her little puppy "perished in the blaze." We know all dogs go to heaven, and my heart goes out to Martha, the breeder, and everyone who loved those pups.

This is so sad!! All those poor babies *tear tear*!! I would never dream of boarding my puppy, where I go, she goes!! Now that we have a pup, when we plan on our next travel, I'm booking a pet friendly hotel!! I would never board anyway. I think it's awful!! Leaving your baby in some strange place with all those other dogs.
