I gotta bad feeling about this.

Great kid! Don't get too cocky.

"What is it Dr. Heimlich?"
"I have invented a maaannneeuuuuveerr"

Sure. She was startled by the dog. But not by choking.

It's more of a gesture.

at that point, a small piece of tooth came out of her throat.

Yeah, because you know, a piece of your tooth can certainly kill you. Why not make this a two-for by shaving the image of Jesus into your dog and saying it was a miracle?

Does the maneuver involve flying to the left a bit?

she gave a wookie a kiss? so he did arrange it!

Flopsy, go to the scratch thread to explore the wonderment of filter ownage.

That said, every day is Dogturday. Every. Day.

maybe if she stopped rifling down tyson chicken wings and crap at night, she wouldn't have that problem.

I don't think the Empire had wookies in mind when they designed her chewie.

There's no way that dog is a Shih Tzu. The breed standard is nine to sixteen pounds, and I kind of doubt the woman's a foot and a half tall.

I have a shih tzu, so I will remember this life-saving tip if I am ever at home and choking.

It's all a lotta simple tricks and nonsense.

Smart move on the dog's part, considering one response of a certain dog to this (that I've heard about) involved chewing up the victim's face...

Well, if you're going to set the standard for intelligence that low, I'm set to become a renowned genius of the 21st century.

I think the dog is in the foreground making it look a lot bigger than it is.

they're actually the same size.

WOW...maybe movie people can use that trick to make things appear bigger than they actually are...

That's no dog. It's a space station.

But it's too big to be a space station.

I thought the line was "Hit it, Chewie" not "Punch it, Chewie."

Am I right, or am I right?

That is clearly a Lhasa Apso. They are often mistaken for shih-tzus, but they are larger with longer snouts.

That's not a dog. That's food.

Sorry, wrong size - "Ewok" was what we were looking for.
 
2008-02-23 11:54:50 PM  
Here's a real shih-tzu:

That could be a Shih-Tzu cross. It looks like our dog which is a terrier cross.

Yeah, I gotta call the bullshiat, too. Henry here is now 3 years old and still fits in the box my work boots come in:

I think you're dead on with that mike. The face, size, and snout are almost identical to my dearly departed Mandy dog. She was a tank, and I could see her pulling off the heimlich if she jumped on me. We have 2 Shih Tzu's and neither of them are bigger than 13 pounds.

Looks like a Lhasa Apso with a cute medium-length haircut to me, too. It sure doesn't look like a Shih Tzu, those things are a) hideous and b) resemble fluffy rats.

It's missing the underbite, the squashier face and the sour, venemous expression of a Shih Tzu.

The only way that thing could be related to a Shih Tzu is if it's a mixed breed. Maybe some poodle for the longer snout.

/have met so many annoying Shih Tzus, and the only one that was cute ugged out at 7 months
