I know that feeling of panic. Not related to chi's but 2 of my human kids did it, first one put a plastic ring in his mouth while we were driving along, he was only about 18 months at the time. I remember glancing in the mirror and he was blue. I didn't even know he had the ring. Second time my other son picked up a penguin wrapper off the floor that one of the others had dropped and just put it in his mouth and sucked the whole lot down his throat. He was only about 6 months old. It's horrible. You go into a complete panic driven auto-pilot state. Both times I managed to get the item up but it must be awful with a small dog as you can't tip them over your lap and wallop them between the shoulder blades or be too rough incase you hurt them. I'm in a cold sweat now and will be looking up how to stop small dogs choking!
