Doggie Heimlich?

Toby, a 2-year-old golden retriever, saw his owner choking on a piece of fruit and began jumping up and down on the woman's chest. The dog's owner believes the dog was trying to perform the Heimlich maneuver and saved her life. Debbie Parkhurst, 45, of Calvert told the Cecil Whig she was eating an apple at her home Friday when a piece lodged in her throat. She attempted to perform the Heimlich maneuver on herself but it didn't work. After she began beating on her chest, she said Toby noticed and got involved.

"The next think I know, Toby's up on his hind feet and he's got his front paws on my shoulders," she recalled. "He pushed me to the ground, and once I was on my back, he began jumping up and down on my chest." That's when the apple dislodged and Toby started licking her face to keep her from passing out, she said.

Now, I'm a pet lover (see photo of Hanna wearing her patriotic scarf for 4th of July), but I have news for Debbie . . . the dog was just hungry for a nice chunk of apple . . .

Heck, I don't even think my kids could perform the Heimlich. Or would.

I think you're supposed to throw yourself over the back of your sofa or something if you want to perform Heimlich on yourself.

This brings something else up for me, which is what to do when your DOG is choking on something. Wally was eating really quickly the other day so he could get out to play fetch quicker, and he started coughing hard. I could tell food had gone down his airway. But then he didn't stop. I think I need to take a pet First Aid class.

I tend not to drop a comment, but after reading a lot
of remarks on Untitled. I actually do have 2 questions for you
if you don't mind. Is it only me or do a few of these remarks look like they are written by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing at other places, I'd like to follow anything new you have to
