What Was That Noise My Dog Just Made?
That sounded so wierd. It was kind of like a funny sneezing sound. And it came from my little chihuahua. He acted like he has something stuck in his throat and he is making a funny honking kind of sound. Well, both sounds can be very normal for a chi. Your first instinct though is to check and make sure that they have not eaten something that he shouldn't have. Next, once you see that things are alright, and he is still making this horrible honking sound, you can massage his neck a bit, to see if he calms down. This honking sound is normal. They also can make another sound which is called a "backwards sneeze". This is also normal. They have such a small neck and windpipes. Many people who take their chi's out on a leash outside choose to use a harness instead of a normal collar, which is easier for them. Don't be alarmed by the funny sounds they make. Just try and get them calmed down and soon, the noise will be gone.
