Hello and thank uyou for using this site to help you. I am sorry your questions was not picked up sooner.

What breed of dog do you have?

Did the gagging start after you suspected she may have gotten into bones ?

Do the episodes come on at random last from a few seconds to a couple of minutes and then suddenly stop?
