Vitamin K




As I mentioned earlier, after the near poisoning, the dogs are on Vitamin K

therapy. Jack is "onto" this. Now, Jack does not even chew his food under

normal circumstances. But, when I give him his vitamin wrapped in a variety

of cheeses, peanut butters, etc, he rolls it on his tongue and spits out the perfectly clean pills. I

am having a little better luck with american cheese---but OH the calories!! My friend, Chili

Pepper says that I have to pry his mouth open and throw it into his throat. Is she nuts or

what? I think I may have her demonstrate this technique. (don't worry, I will take pictures). I

still haven't had a chance to do the weigh-in (too much scootering this weekend) but according to
Flamingo Pharmacist, he doesn't look any thinner, (sigh).


Currently reading (if I can successfully download the audiobook): Middlesex

Currently listening to: My new toaster radio

Currently eating: toast, of course

Hey i feel for u haveing 4 dogs in our family i know it gets a little ruff. As for dog proffing the corner cabnet try to put tab locks on the top outside you can turn them sideways so u can get in and turn down so dogs can't. Hopefully they can't reach that high to turn them.

tiff-
what are tab locks? send a link...are they the sliding locks...like on an old style public restroom? That might work if I find one that looks attractive. Otherwise I found this:

I am so sorry that poor Jack was exposed to rat poison. I wish I could reach out to him someone and give him a sane influence. I will pray for him and possibly even throw in a rosary to reflect my parochial school education.
God bless all of you bloggers.
