Thanks to a labrador-springer-spaniel mix named Judy, Sharon Brooke recently survived swallowing a bit too much toast. Brooke, from Little Hereford, Shropshire, UK, had begun to turn blue when the mutt marvel dashed across the room and vaulted on her back.
"She just whacked me on the back with one of her paws and the piece of toast just flew out and landed in the sink," Brooke tells the Daily Express.
Once Judy had dislodged the bread, she reassured her owner with plenty of licks to the face. "Judy is just fantastic," Brooke says, and is more "like a human than any dog I know."
