    I have a chronic sneezer, but she's perfectly healthy. When someone other than her sneezes I pick them up and check for clear eyes and no drainage from the nostrils. If they appear fine otherwise and it's just an occasional sneeze, I've learned to chalk it up to dust or eating too fast.

    Eating too fast is how my Hiccups got her name. She is a very piglet!!
