This is great because all my dog's do is lick themselves and then buttsurf across the carpet!
Rachel Hayes' dog recently performed the Heimlich Maneuver on her and saved her life. The Londoner tells the Mirror that she choked on strawberry candy. "She's an absolute hero. It happened when I sat down to have a sweet. It got stuck in the back of my throat and I couldn't get it back up. I couldn't phone anyone because I couldn't talk. I was having difficulty breathing but Mollypops' sixth sense kicked in and she knew I was in trouble. She was insistently trying to help me and I kept pushing her away. But she kept coming around me because she could see I was trying to get something from my throat. But I kept pushing her away because I couldn't really breathe. Then Mollypops came up behind me put her paws on me and bashed on my back with such force the sweet came out. I just burst out crying and said, 'I love you.' She came over for a cuddle and I cuddled her. I told her she was a hero. I think she's glad to have me alive, otherwise she would have been left all on her own. But I don't think she knows quite what she has done. I was crying and shaking because I thought I was going to die. I gave Mollypops lots of cuddles and, as a thank you, I bought her a squeaky chicken and some doggy sweets."
