Hannah has been listening to too much NPR. She is concerned about the economy. I think that she has heard about higher gas prices and (horrors!!) food prices.
She has decided to help us out but cutting back -- not on treats though! Instead, she is refusing her pills. I know that this is just her labra-effort to save money but really, the Tramadol isn't that expensive -- and urking up the Zubrin was simply not helpful. She is even refusing her Fig Newton -- lick, chew, and spit out because a pill touched it.
Some have suggested wrapping Hannah's medications in cheese or adding a side of wet dog food to entice her to be a bit less picky about her food. The pills are already served either in (Tramadol) or on (Zubrin) a Fig Newton covered with local honey. Miss Brown Dog licks the local honey off the Fig Newton, places said Newton in her mouth, determines that there is a pill inside and spits out the nearly intact Newton and pills.
The Zubrin is on top of the Newton and covered with honey. Sort of like a sundae -- dry dog food, stuffed Fig Newton, Zubrin, a dollop of local sourwood honey. Unfortunately, this morning Zubrin went in but a white blob came back out about 15 minutes later.
Right now, I am thinking of backing off the Tramadol. That is the last thing that was added. The Brown One is smart. Maybe the Tramodol is bothering her tummy?
