NO! I didn't forget! I just ran out of hours in a day! I've been so busy, busy!
So this is going to be a really quick tip but sometimes something simple and easy can save a life!
As most of you know by now, I have a small HERD of little dogs. I have a half-door to my laundry room and when I go to work, I leave my little ones in that room. I always say good-bye to them and sometimes I used to toss them some treats. SO...
One day I had some new treats, ( I won't say the company name. because I don't want to get sued or something) but the treats looked like little vegetables-
My little Powderpuff Chinese-Crested, Mimsy. (A rescue dog that the owners didn't want because they said she was too needy and was always trying to crawl into their laps....????????????????) So my little Mimsy jumped up to get a treat and as she lunged up, it flew into the back of her mouth and she had it lodged at the top of her throat and started to frantically dig at her face! She was choking!
I ran in and scooped her up. I couldn't maneuver her around to the point where I could reach in and pull out the treat! It was really wedged in there. I was holding her and trying to pull down her legs and stop her from clawing at her face and she was totally freaking out. I was in the kitchen and pulled open a drawer. There was a wooden spoon!
I grabbed it and used the handle end to go behind the treat and flip it out. It was just a matter of seconds but I was in a panic!
So the moral to this is... and the pet tip! ALWAYS break up your doggie treats to LITTLE BITE SIZES!
