Wojo’s World®: Mad Dog

Wojo's World(R): Mad Dog photo 0

One of my dogs has freaked.

No, not the kind where she’& rsquo; s got rabies as well as running mayhem through 1890s London.

And it’& rsquo; s not the type of mad where she made a potion in her pet laboratory, and has currently turned into Ms. God (Obtain it? Dr. Pet and also Ms. God & hellip; Okay, don’t bother.)

It’& rsquo; s certainly not the kind where she’& rsquo; s lathering at the mouth & hellip;

Well, actually, she is quite darned mad. So for all I understand, she can be foaming at the mouth. However, once more, not from rabies.

Why is my dog Mae (she prefers to make use of a pseudonym when I write about her) so upset?

Due to the fact that she can’& rsquo; t have peanut butter anymore. Yep. That’& rsquo; s it

. That & rsquo; s why. As a result of a recent and also fairly scary vet browse through, she can no more have fatty foods.

The good news is for us, although that she’& rsquo; s rather a little pet dog, she had the eating power of an Excellent Dane. In fact, if her sibling (through fostering) leaves even a couple of pieces of food when he’& rsquo; s completed, she skulks over, and when she believes we & rsquo; re not paying attention, she begins to draw his food down faster than a Hoover before company’& rsquo; s

coming. There have been times when she’& rsquo; s done this so hard that she relocates his plate clear into the other room.

That’& rsquo; s my lady. However when she needs to obtain a tablet, we’& rsquo; ve constantly place it in peanut butter. She enjoys it. Also when we utilize it for our own sandwiches, her nose scents it, and also she comes running like an ‘& lsquo; 80s mom going after that last Cabbage Patch doll. She books it.

If you might see her just when it’& rsquo; s time for her regular food, you’& rsquo;d believe she hadn & rsquo; t been fed in

5 years. She dancings like Snoopy because it’& rsquo; s Suppertime, Suppertime, Suppertime! She spins like Stevie Nicks. She jumps like a kangaroo. Then, she chases me into the cooking area, batting at the rear of my legs with her little paws the entire time.

She’& rsquo; s definitely charming.

Which is why that not being able to give her one of her favored things on the planet has actually been difficult.

When she initially obtained house from the vet, she was tired. So she didn’& rsquo; t miss out on the peanut butter. As well as prepared chicken breast with a tablet concealed inside seemed just fine with her.

We could inform she was back to herself when she consumed the chicken and spew out the pill.

We can’& rsquo; t give her any one of the pocket-type pill hider treats on the marketplace because they have a tendency to be high in fat.

We attempted to hide it in rice.

Nope. Didn’& rsquo; t work. She ate every grain of rice and left the pill undamaged. Possibly a little spitty, yet still entire.

We tried putting it in the food the veterinarian offered us.

Nope. How a pet gets a pill out of wet pet dog food, I’& rsquo; ll never recognize.

Mae needs to go work a forensic group—– she can discover the smallest bits of hints hidden in the most awful criminal offense scenes ever before. I can see it now: NCIS: Going to the Dogs

Lastly, my husband, at his wit’& rsquo; s end by now, obtained a somewhat bigger piece of hen, slit it, placed the pill in, as well as offered it to her.


As time as gone on, Mae went from moring than happy about getting poultry to first being pitiful concerning no more peanut butter.

You pet owners know that dismal look that our fuzzy relative can offer. They have to learn it when they’& rsquo; re pups with their mothers.

In the past, when she gave us that look, we’& rsquo;d be relocated to give her little face anything she wanted.

Yet not any longer.

We made it with the depressing appearances. Then the denial. Currently, she’& rsquo; s carried on to—the following stage– anger. Mae, we hope, will certainly go through the negotiating phase as well as relocate right into acceptance. That would certainly be good for everybody.

I just don’& rsquo; t want to be around when she understands that she also can’& rsquo; t have cheese.
