I am supposed to take gabapentin for my achies, but Mom has a tough time with me & pills. My mouth is so tiny, it is hard to even use the pill shooter. And as cute as I am, I am not cooperative. Can you beleive that? meee? She tried the pill pockets, which worked great...a couple times until I bit the capsule & got powder in my mouth..that was it. Well, when Momma stopped at the vet to get Maizy's prednisolone, they have a pill paste there. It is by Vetroniquol or something like that. It is brown dough & looks like a jar of playdough. You can take the amount you want to wrap the pill in, and it is softer & moister than pill pockets. Works great & smells & tastes like BACON! Momma says it reminds her of the smell of Beggin Strips. But it worked! At least yesterday! We will see for today. And it worked on Maizy too. At least it takes some of the trauma of pills away. I am scheduled next Tuesday for all my xrays. It will be Smitty's week to chat, but I am sure he or I will post what we find out.
Snow & more snow today. We had some huge drifts. Some spots had nothing, and some spots 12 inches. Mom had to struggle to get out & feed The Minions. I know she feels so bad for them out there. The few days it was awful cold, she left the big garage door open enough that they could scoot under. They have been using the little tote-bin houses too. And boy the heated water bowl has proven it's worth this year! -20 degrees, and still fresh liquid water. Now it will get very cold again. Here in Chicago, we are used to some crummy weather, but this year, it is getting exhausting. Momma says she just aches everywhere, and is tired of coats & hats & gloves & boots. But spring will be here before we know it. Happy snowy day my friends!

Glad the pill paste worked!

Down here in Dallas we're having a windchill of 0! Which I know is not that much for y'all, but it's crazy cold for us!

Good luck with your x-rays and pills. And thank you for the tip on the "bacon wrapped pills." I'm a terror when it comes to pills, don't like pill pockets and am very suspicious of anything I don't know what it is going in my mouth, so maybe this will work for me too.
