On the 29th December 2009 our news blog with over 2000 entries was taken down by blogger on suspicion of it being a `spamblog`. Whether this was as a result of malicious intent by persons unknown (well, we know perfectly well who they are, but you know what I mean), or as a result of over zealous spambots. However at the CFZ we like to take inspiration from the best, and so - like London's Windmill Theatre who presented nude tableaux vivant throughout WW2 - We Never Close!

Giant tongue almost kills dog

04 January 2010 16:30 PM

A dog in Scotland almost died after an accident left her with a giant tongue.

Family pet Penny almost suffocated when her tongue swelled to four times its normal size following a bizarre accident.

The pooch was tucking into to her favourite treat - a pig's heart - when part of the dead animal's aorta became stuck around the base of her tongue.

As her mouth muscle started to swell, the 18-year-old animal frantically clawed at her face to try and free it.

Penny's owner Linda Donnelly rushed the animal to a pet hospital in Glasgow.

Vet Dermot Mullen said: "I am just pleased I was able to save her. The prognosis was not at all good."

Linda added: "Pigs' hearts are now completely off the menu!"
