Meet America's newest canine sensation, Toby! Toby's owner, Debbie Parkhurst, was home alone last Friday with her two dogs when a chunk of apple got caught in her throat. Debbie tried to give herself the Heimlich and when that didn't work she tried pounding on her own chest.
Toby then sprung into action and gently pulled Debbie to the floor. He then performed a version of the Heimlich by jumping up and down on her chest. Eventually, the apple chunk came out.
Debbie said, “As soon as I started breathing, he stopped and began licking my face, as if to keep me from passing out."
Toby has been contacted by various media outlets from David Letterman to Good Morning America for appearances.
Ok, I'm sure Toby is special and all but I want video. We're just going to take Debbie's word for it? Even if it was true, Toby was just trying to romance her ass a little. Look at her hair, he thought it was his girlfriend from high school. She does look like a Golden Retreiver. He was just trying to get a piece.
That being said, Toby is today's hero.
