I have a question. Every now and then when my dog is lying beside me on his back, he has gone into some almost wheezing like fits, maybe almost asthmatic. Now i know you are wondering what the tongue has to do with this. Well, that is my question. My dog has the longest tongue. when he has it hanging out of his mouth he looks just like Odie (you know from Garfield) and I am NOT exaggerating. Everyone that sees him says "oh my gosh his tongue is so long". The thing will hit you in the arm or the leg sometimes....really. Now could his tongue cover his air way when he is lying back like that? Do you think that could have anything to do with it or is it something else?
