Today we attended a BBQ put on by my boyfriend's coworker. He had 3 children - 4, 2, and 3 weeks - and they made me think of my own furry baby at home. I figured brushing up on my pet first-aid and CPR skills would be a good idea. Just like insurance, you hope to never use it but glad it's there in an emergency.
I slyly scooped up Lola, initially cuddling her, and then proceeded to feel her over for pulse points. She wasn't so keen on the femoral artery in the groin/thigh area - but I found it!
I truly hope I never have to give Lola the Heimlich maneuver! Mentally picturing holding a dog against my chest, but upside down, was just giggle-inducing.
