Thanks for the responses!
She has a little collar for fashion purposes that her tags hang off (so loose that when she runs it bounces) but any walking or leash training happens on a harness and always has.
My husband and I definitely do not get excited when we say "Ponyo's quacking" ... we kind just say it quietly as a "matter of fact" type of statement and quack once or twice at one another as a "funny game" type-thing so she doesn't get scared and neither does he. Should we stop doing that altogether?
Sometimes we don't even say it at all. We only really say it for my husband's benefit (lol the first time she had an episode he was terrified!
It was one of the more adorable things I've ever seen him do. "OMG IS SHE OKAY?!" It was when we were all in bed and he was VERY concerned. It was adorable.
Thanks you very much for the advice!!! I will get her checked out.
Even when I put her in the bath tub at work I never
put a noose around her neck. I will definitely get her checked for collapsing trachea. What are treatments for that? Will those treatments reduce her reverse sneezing?
.... I'm not sure I want to teach her to bark or howl.
She's wonderfully, beautifully quiet. Perhaps the "collapsing trachea" is the reason for that?
Thank you all again!
