    My bf and I always watch the boys too when they eat. You never know what's going to happen, no matter what size the food so we figured better safe than sorry.

    Bo choked on a piece of kibble when he was a little pup. It was THE scariest thing ever. I pulled it out with my fingers. These dogs don't get anything edible/chewable without someone being around - except the giant nylabone. It can happen in an instant. I feel so badly for these folks.....

    So sad to hear this. If we are going somewhere, I always wait until Frank finishes eating because that is one of my worst nightmares. Poor little bullie and parents.

    How sad, poor little bab...
    I have Pepper eat from a bowl I found that is made with Bully's in mind. It stands on legs so its just does not lie on the flooe like a regular food bowl. Plus it is tilted at an angle so she does not have to stand over her bowl with her face down in her food. The angle allows a bully to eat with the windpipe more level. Its designed to keep choking to a minimum PLUS by allowing the bully to eat at a more comfortable position their siliva glands to do flop forward and it cuts drooling issues drastically , it does wonders to stop Bully's from slobbering all over the place. Its worth the bit of extra money to get one.

    That is so tragic! They must be so heartbroken and guilty. I have always stayed in the same room while all my dogs eat. Always have. Last year on Christmas Eve while our old dog Ace was eating he did that very thing, choked. He killed over and Mike gave him doggie Heimlich.

    My co-work lost her 5 year old dog this summer. She had given him a hamburger slider while she was cooking, she heard him cough as he was going outside but didn't give it a second thought and 1/2 later she couldn't find her dog because she had chocked to death under their deck. She felt horrible!!!!

    @Davidh this is just so sad to hear about your friend. Good advise for all who leave the fur friends to fend for themselves. Please send my condolences to your friends. They must be just devastated. Prayers are being sent their way, it will be very difficult for them over the Holiday season. I'm so sorry.

    Thank you so much for the post! I've never heard of them choking on food. Sometimes when I have to leave around dinner time I am not home when Chelsea is eating and I will make sure that this never happens again. Chelsea usually won't eat in front of us but we are typically in the next room and can hear her. I just pray if anything did happen that at least my boyfriend would be home since he is sooo much better at emergencies then I am. When Chelsea cut her paw I totally panicked and was in the process of rushing her to the vet, while he was better assessing her wound and applying pressure to it. So much for my pet first aid training class.
