Max and Elsie Campooch die from poison

These beloved pets died last week after getting into something. People can help avoid other needless animal deaths by taking simple precautions.

LONG BEACH - Beloved Long Beach canines Max and Elsie Campooch, ages 5 and 8 respectively, passed away last week from accidental poisoning of an unknown source.

Max and Elsie loved to play in the woods bordering their home. Chasing squirrels was their full-time employment and their hobbies included sleeping, eating and chasing squirrels.

This loving couple is survived by their full-time kitty companions, Bathalamew, Rocko Blondo, and Dingding; retired pasture ornament Nevada; and their loving mother Nancy Campiche.

PLEASE, do not throw your hazardous substances in the woods as a means of disposal. Innocent, happy pets may unknowingly happen along.

PLEASE, do not throw your salmon guts and by-products into the woods - salmon poisoning is a killer.

PLEASE, dispose of your anti-freeze properly without delay. This tastes like candy to dogs and cats and will kill them.

PLEASE, pick up poisonous mushrooms from your yard. A playful puppy can suffer needlessly.

Max and Elsie would have wished for contributions to be made to the Pacific County Animal Shelter where they both met Miss Campiche.
