Doggies Rule!!

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 newspaper 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 paw print-shaped bruises on my chest. I'm still a little hoarse, but otherwise, I'm OK," Parkhurst said.

"The doctor said I probably wouldn't be here without Toby," said Parkhurst, a jewelry artist. "I keep looking at him and saying, 'You’re amazing."'

To whom it may concern:

Micky is now officially known as Argos after the mega-loyal dog who waited for Odysseus to get home. By the way, it is spelled with an O, not with a U, so there. Read all about his namesake

My name is Stevie, so there!!!

I want to be called Stevie! I sent a psychic message to Amy to tell her that. I understand that that is a problem for the human resident with a similar name. so we'll just change his name to Schmutzface.

- Stevie (the one you incorrectly call Mickey)
