I had a similar experience with my own dog, and friend, Smokey. He had swallowed a large chunk of chicken and began to act funny, he stumbled sideways and went to the floor. His eyes rolled back white, I was able to attempt heimlick but it did not avail. I was able to reach way in and did get the piece out. He came to and lived. I'll never forget that feeling. I am very sorry for this brave, great K9 Officer's Death. These K9's are the Highest example of bravery, loyalty and goodness. Godspeed Officer Jojo. Regards & sympathy to his partner. - Mike Glennon
