Sounds like the Siberian/GSD we had when we got married. That dang fool would actually pretend to swallow, then spit the pill out when you weren't looking.

Yeah, but you didn't. That's what matters. We all have those "I want to stangle them" days.

Oh, and, yeah, I got the feeling the owner didn't want to deal with the epilepsy, or the espense of the meds.

Sophie is a champion pill spitter. I've walked into the kitchen on a few occasions and come across mum having very stern words with her about it. lol

Buster can be a bit tricky, he has to take 6 a day, just fish oil and glucosomine but you have to hide them really well.
I split them up into lots of 3 and put them in sausage mince balls small enough for him not to have to chew, that usually works okay.

I can't imagine getting rid of a dog over something like that though, thats just incredible.

All I can say is WTF O.O



Max is on Phenobarb twice a day. He eats it like it's candy. There's no need to hide it for him lol. He lives with my mom, and she has NO dog sense whatsoever, and she still manages to pill him with no problems. For me it's also dirt cheap - two month's worth for $2.25 (have I mentioned I LOVE the discounts I get working at a vet clinic? lol).

Can we all take turns kicking this person in the ass when she/he bends over to pick up the pills? I want to be first 'cause I'm just dying to vent some frustration over stupid people.

Sickening! It is hard to relate to people who are incapable of love. This person not only doesn't love her dog, but she can't love anyone. She is totally and completely self centered. I'd like to see what "trouble" she'd think taking care of my sick dogs were. Bending over to pick up a pill? That's just sick.
