Oh, man, how sad and scary. Turkey necks scare me, too. I have to hold anything anyway (MP's a gulper), but I've always been particularly whiteknuckled with turkey necks—and MP being a gulper, I've always been afraid of choking in general. So, if a dog were to choke on it (or any other thing), is something like the Heimlich not very effective on dogs? I watch choking and CPR videos every once in a while, hoping that I may possibly remember something in an emergency some day, but have never had to do it for real.
