Must Love Pekes is a blog for those who love Pekingese, their looks, their antics, their personalities. It is written by me, Linda, and I have been rescuing Pekingese for 14 years. Lots of them have gone through our home. We have loved them all.

Have you ever heard your dog sound like he is choking? Where he breathes in rapidly over and over and you think he must be gagging on something? (Ricky above, one of our adopted dogs.)
I'm sure Bennett above has done this, too. It is called reverse sneezing and it can scare you silly if you are not familiar with it!
The name for reverse sneezing is pharyngeal gag reflux. When my dogs do it, it sounds like a honking noise. (Annabelle, in front, and Jojo --can you find him?)
Cosme has probably had some reverse sneezing. I just rub my dog's throat and talk to them. Reverse sneezing usually only lasts a short time.
