  1. Hi doggy, and thanks for your posts here in this forum. Were you able to get through the episode you had earlier today/yesterday? Glad you did not have to call 911. I imagine you must be relieved, too!
    If there is anything we can do to assist you, please let me or any other moderator / team member know.
    All the best,
