Smallest Dog, Largest Cowbell

Beyonce is a singer. But she is also a dog. A Dachshund puppy. Who got some mouth-to-mouth to save her life. And now she is the world’s smallest pooch:

Beyonce, a Dachshund puppy vying for the title of World’s Smallest Dog

This is Beyonce, a female dachshund mix who was born March 8 to a rescue dog that was found abandoned, wandering the streets of San Bernardino, Calif. At birth, she weighed just 1 ounce and could fit into a teaspoon.

Beyonce wasn’t breathing when she was born at the foundation’s farm in El Dorado Hills, Calif. A veterinarian tried to revive her by performing chest compressions. Then he passed her over to Beth Decaprio.

“I blew a couple little breaths in her mouth,” Decaprio says. “And she started to breathe on her own.”

Beyonce was lucky the vet did not have any qualms about the ol’ lip-to-lip.

Enough on tiny dogs. Let’s talk cowbell:

More cowbell! Christopher Walken as Bruce Dickinson on SNL

Taking Christopher’s Walken’s classic “Saturday Night Live” demands literally, residents of northern Vermont are planning to form the “World’s Largest Cowbell Ensemble” next month.

The gathering, slated for April 14 in Burlington, Vt., will be hosted by Ben & Jerry’s and the Water Wheel Foundation, a nonprofit organization launched by local Vermont rock group Phish.

The smallest dog and the largest cowbell ensemble. All in one post. Beyonce and Bruce.
