A quick-thinking dog owner has been praised after saving his pet from choking to death on a block of cheese.
Joshua Aspey, from Watchet, Somerset, stepped in after his 10-year-old Jack Russell started choking on his kitchen floor.
The 22-year-old electrician instantly grabbed the dog, turned it over and helped free the lodged dairy from its windpipe.
The incident was captured on a camera which Joshua had previously set up to monitor his other dog Mickey’s epilepsy.
Joshua, a former lifeguard, said instinct kicked in when he saw his dog struggling to breathe.
Fortunately, Sally was quick to recover from the ordeal.
She had a brief lie down in her bed before returning to Joshua for more cheese.
