Woman says dog saved her with Heimlich
''The next think I know, Toby's up on his hind feet and he's got his front paws on my shoulders,'' she recalled. ''He pushed me to the ground, and once I was on my back, he began jumping up and down on my chest.''

Calvert, MD - Toby, a 2-year-old golden retriever, saw his owner choking on a piece of fruit and began jumping up and down on the woman's chest.
The dog's owner believes the dog was trying to perform the Heimlich maneuver and saved her life.
