Hi, I'm Audrey. I'm finally getting a chance to read all of the blogs from the bloggy carnival and loving what I'm finding.

I'm laughing so hard. I have two dogs. One takes his pills no problem. The other is the most brilliant dog alive. He will unwrap the bacon, cheese, etc and spit out the pill and eat the food. Ok, we'll outsmart him, so we take real chicken, you know the kind you and I eat. I put the pill deep inside a nice piece of chicken. I give him the chicken. When he spits out the pill, I'm dumbfounded.

Don't tell him but finally we found he loves peanut butter. If we smother the pill in peanut butter, he'll eat it :)
