Has she been doing forever? It could be reverse sneezing which is quite normal for these little dogs. If it is something new, it could be kennel cough. Look on youtube for videos of reverse sneezing.

Only other thing I can think of besides kc or trachea is congestive heart failure which, while not curable, is treatable. Again, please get her to the vet ASAP.

My friend has a small dog that does this, and I asked her about that weird noise the dog kept making and she said she took it to the vet and it was fine. It usually only does it when it gets excited. I hope your dog is ok!
