Cute, but stupid

We've been giving my dog these pills for her allergies. At first, it was no big deal. We'd pop them in her mouth, rub her throat once or twice, and she'd swallow it. No sweat.

Then she started to rebel. She would refuse to swallow. For a while gently blowing in her face would work, but then that stopped being effective also. It became a big long battle to get this dog to take her meds.

A few nights ago, I was trying to teach Gidget how to roll over, and Leila decided she wanted to play so she could get a treat too. I grabbed her pill, told her to roll over, told her good girl, and dropped the pill on the floor.

Wouldn't you know that little booger snatched it up like it was a chicken nugget or something and gulped it down with absolutely no fuss whatsoever?

Now it's become a game, to see what new ways we can come up with to trick her into taking her pill. My husband will place it on the edge of the coffee table and "accidentally" knock it off when he is sure the dog is watching. You should see how fast she moves to snag it before we notice!

Gotta love her!
