Big happy brks and howls go out to this eagle-eyed garbage guy!

Now can we talk about the dogs-in-purses thing? This is the second small dog found in the garbage this month. Is it possible that these trashed dogs were bought by some would-be fashionistas and then tossed out when the Paris Hilton-wannabes realized they might actually have to spend time and money on their fashion accessory? I don’t know but this has crossed my mind. What do you think? Bark in!

Garbage man saves dog from trash can

EDMONTON (CP) – An alert garbage man rescued an injured Yorkshire terrier dog buried under trash at the bottom of a garbage can.

The Edmonton Humane Society says the little Yorkie, weighing just two kilograms, was encrusted in feces, urine and garbage when the city employee spotted her under several bags of trash on Wednesday.

The dog was found in north-central Edmonton and has no identification.

Humane Society official Diane Shannon says it’s remarkable the tiny dog was able to survive the ordeal.

She says she it was a cruel act and hopes animal protection officers can find the person responsible and charge them under the law.

The little dog was being assessed at the shelter and it’s believed may have an injury to her hind leg.
