Our tri-colored female is almost three years old and a joy. We've almost gotten used to her extremely loud snoring. (Who knew that such a little thing could snore so loudly?) But here's what I'm worried about: every so often she starts gasping deep in her throat -- it almost sounds like asthma. She runs to me and I rub her back and her chest until she calms down. It usually passes within a minute or so. It happened once when we were at the vet, but he was out of the room at the time, and she didn't do it again while he was there. He didn't seem too concerned but he was a new doctor. Does anyone have similar experiences? Is this "normal" in the breed? We've only had her since earlier this year and I'm still learning. I read about four pages of threads in this section and didn't see anything similar. I appreciate your thoughts!
