While I was feeding my two dogs (a Rottie-Shepard and Maltichu)the little one (Maltichu)went under the big dog and stole a mouthful of food which included mashed potatoes.

Needless to say he got the food stuck and was chocking.

Time was of the essence he couldn't breathe with the food stuck in his mouth,so I picked him up turned him nose to floor and slapped the food out with in a Heimlich like motion.

Always feed small and large dogs spaced out(Which I did) and keep an eye out for fast little stinkers like my Maltese Chihuahua he is fast and a little piggy!
