Do you have a picky dog?

I do. Charlie is the pickiest eater ever. He doesn't even like treats--and believe me, I've tried a whole range of different shapes and flavors. It's especially trying when I want him to take a pill. I can smother it in a half ton of peanut butter (the one treat he does like) and he'll still manage to spit the pill out. Well, here's the trick. Get a cat. Seriously, it's a godsend. I can get him to eat pills without any peanut butter now. Here's a video of Charlie with a treat I just gave him. As you can see, he is less than impressed by it. All I have to do is call the kitty and wah-lah, the treat disappears! Granted, he still doesn't seem impressed by it, but at least he ate it.

That's hilarious! I've never seen a dog spit out a treat before!!! But heaven forbid the cat should eat it... Jack stays up all night sometimes, running from bone fragment to bone fragment that he's left around the house, making sure the cats aren't gnawing on them when he's not looking (as if).

Beware, the cat might quit coming when you call if he gets jumped every time by a neurotic dog.
