Mom contemplated posting this in my diary because Dad was very upset and she thought it was better left alone...BUT.... My vote was YES because if it saves just 1 pup...it was well worth it.
As some of you know I have this crazy auto immune disease called MMM...the main issue I currently have is loss of muscle in my head and jaw/throat. I am on prednisone so not only do I drink and pee alot... I have been gulping my food.
This morning before I got my breakfast I did my normal thing of following Mom around while she got ready for work, then Dad got my bowl out...so I was glued to him. He put my food down and like everyday I was SO SO happy and started eating and gulping away.
Mom had just walked out the door for work ....
Dad, who was about 10 feet away heard me choking like I have never choked before...He rushed over to me and now I was panicking...I sat down..Dad rubbed my throat a little cuz sometimes I get a small spasm and that works.. Well it didn't work... I went down..Dad started patting my back pretty hard ...I rolled over and started shaking (as Dad described it convulsiong) ...Dad was starting to panic then when he saw I stopped breathing he rolled me on my side scooped me up and got his fists under by ribcage by my belly and started throwing my body forward...The doggie Hymlic... After a few hard pulls I choked up the food and it fell on the floor...Dad saw my eyes open and he put me down.. I was still in shock...I sat there for a minute or two and saw Sasha looking at me like Dude....Whatchadoinn'? I got up and shook my head grabbed a toy and went back to eat the food that I was choking on...I am fine. Mom had forgotten her phone and walked back in to see Dad REALLY shook up with tears in his eyes and thought something was wrong with him...Then he told her exactly what happened...He thought he was gonna lose me!
I hope this didn't make anyone sad... I am JUST FINE! and playing with Sasha and my toys...
I do however want to say that Thank Dog Dad watched that show on Doggie emergencies and knew how to save me..
Mom said "new rule" No unattended eating" I am not for that ....but I guess I understand now...I do however think Sasha HATES me! BOL
I love you Dad!!

God bless you Dad !!!!!!! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for saving our Dozer Dude !
(((((((((((((((((((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))) ))))))))))))))))))))))))))Glad you are ok buddy ! Hows your Dad ?
I am sure your Mommy knows about the bowls they call brakefast bowls.. they have these little nubby rubber things sticking up on the inside so you can't gulp.Its kinda like an obstacle course for your tongue! It helped my cousin Lucky. Maybe it could help you. I know y'all don't ever want to go through anything like that ever again.
We love you so much! Please give your Dad a HUGE HUG from us,he is a HERO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thank the angel babies you're okay. Dad worked fast and stayed calm--a real hero.
Bug hugs to you and Dad!!!!!
Hey my handsome man!!! Slow down dude we don't want this ever to happen again to you or your dad!!! What a special guy your Dad is and so smart to know what to do!! Its probably a good thing for my mom to know this hymlic thing because Bandit is always chewing everything up and sometimes gags on stuff, which I think he deserves but oh well!!! Were so glad your OK Dozer you are so special to us, please be careful!!!
hugs and kisses, Josie
Well, Dozer, I must say, that was a close one! Maybe a bit too close! Do try to be careful and . . . well, I am for the "no unattended eating" thing for you. Mom likes that for me, too, because I've had a bit of tummy trouble and I'm a little girl. So, you see? Our pawrents really care for us so try to put up with the new rule. Just the same, at least you and I are not boring pups! We keep our pawrents on their toes! Congrats to your Dad for his fine work. Give him a congratulatory kiss from me! xxx
Our mutual pal, Riley, told us about this, so we had to stop by and see you, Dozer. We're so happy your Mom posted this for the following reasons:
1. Your Daddy is our personal hero of the year!!!
2. The information you gave all of us may become necessary someday.
3. And most IMPORTANT - because we care about YOU !!!
Hugs from your pals and Happy Thanksgiving!!
Again...We are humbled by the pawsome furends we have...Thank you so very much for your kind words and thoughts... I kinda think my dad is a hero too!!
We have received so much feedback from this and many pups pawrents now realize that we can do something to help our furs when they are in trouble.
It was something we have never experienced nor ever want to again...
We are very thankful to have great furends like you all...
Your dad is a hero! You are so lucky to have a dad like him.
