What To Do If a Human Is Choking



This is important information. A couple of months ago Tim and Mandy were drinking tea. (They drink a lot of tea as Mandy used to be British.) Mandy said something and Tim started laughing and then began choking. (I don't know how you can choke on laughter but he did it.) He jumped up, walked around a bit and then leant over a table. Mandy went over to him and started patting him on the back. Eager to help a pack member in obvious distress, I went and added my paws to Mandy's hands. With our combined effort, Tim regained his breathing and things went back to normal. If Mandy hadn't been there, I wouldn't have known what to do. So I thought I should inform all the hounds out there, just in case.

This is lying position number 97. You can see the teapot in the foreground.

Life is great when you are helping out your pack.
