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.
