Its funny I have seen and handled many many children's accidents some really bad, broken arms, knocked out teeth, I've used the Heimlich several times to help a chocking kid and so on (working in childcare) I naturally am not someone who panics. Even with my own kids (touch wood we have never had anything real bad) But twice when I thought Fletcher was hurt I was a mess. Once when he throw up fabric and I rushed him to the vet and when we both fell down the outside steps. I think its because he can't tell me what's the matter and I have less experience with dogs. Murphy seems to want his Mommy and Daddy when he's hurting, you and 100% correct to remain calm for his sake.
