    Default Story to make you smile: Golden retriever performs "Heimlich maneuver" on owner

    From Yahoo News

    CALVERT, Md. - Toby, a 2-year-old golden retriever, saw his owner choking on a piece of fruit and began jumping up and down on the woman's chest. The dog's owner believes the dog was trying to perform the Heimlich maneuver and saved her life.

    Debbie Parkhurst, 45, of Calvert told the Cecil Whig she was eating an apple at her home Friday when a piece lodged in her throat. She attempted to perform the Heimlich maneuver on herself but it didn't work. After she began beating on her chest, she said Toby noticed and got involved.

    "The next think I know, Toby's up on his hind feet and he's got his front paws on my shoulders," she recalled. "He pushed me to the ground, and once I was on my back, he began jumping up and down on my chest."

    That's when the apple dislodged and Toby started licking her face to keep her from passing out, she said.

    "I literally have pawprint-shaped bruises on my chest. I'm still a little hoarse, but otherwise, I'm OK," Parkhurst said.

    "The doctor said I probably wouldnt be here without Toby," said Parkhurst, a jewelry artist. "I keep looking at him and saying 'Youre amazing.'"

    He was probably just trying to eat his owner.
    Or steal something. Or spend his gov'ment check on lottery tix and smokes.
    Dogs really piss me off.
    I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn't matter. You were born rich and you're going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you.Herman Blume - Rushmore

    The dog probably saw that she was in distress and decided to "off" her by knocking her down the stairs. When that didn't work, he decided to kill her by collapsing her lungs by jumping up and down on her chest. When she seemed to get better because of this, he thought "oh crap, if she thinks I was actually trying to kill her, I'm taking a one way trip to the vet" so he started "kissing" her to suck up.

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

    All these dogs are spilling across our border. Stealing all of our jobs. Burning our flags. Destroying property values across the board. Getting a free ride. All while my taxes go to paying for their lazy asses. Next dog I see... I swear I'm spitting in his face.

    They even disrespect us so much as to deficate in our yards and expect US to clean it up! Can you imagine!

    Not for nothing, but if my dog jumps on me, knocks me over and jumps up and down on my chest so as to leave paw-print bruises...........if I wake up I am kicking that litlle sh*t right across the room on principle alone.;)

    Damn, my Jack Russell Terrorist, not only weighs only 17 lbs, she's also got a bad back leg, so she can't jump. Guess I'm **** out of luck if I begin to choke in front of her.

    He was probably trying to mount her.

    I think the fact that the dog was smoking a cigarette when Paramedics arrived, speaks volumes to me.

    LOL! They were probably prison cigs... like Pall Malls or hand-rolled floor shavings.
