I think my puppy might have swallowed a piece of wire!

She got one of the baby's stuffed animals that talks and disected it. Yesterda she chewed the wires in two and got the "voice box" thing completely off. I keep putting that toy where she can't get it but I guess dh keeps putting it back in the toy box because she had it again this morning. Now she keeps coughing like she's trying to hock something up. Should I watch to see if it comes up or what?

Yes and perhaps call the vet if the hacking continues. ALSO try and look down Sophie's throat with a flashlight, paying particular attention to the back of the roof of her mouth and try and see if the wire is stuck there. This happened with one of my small dogs, except it was a sharp, small branch from the street - it had to be removed with the vet's tongs.
