Millie is having some kind of doggie psychotic episode. It's gone from mildly annoying to flat out serious. She won't drink water. I have tried every trick. At this point she will only lick water off my fingers if I dip them in water. At only 4 pounds it won't take long for her to dehydrate.
This is how far I have stooped.
I went to the pharmacy tonight and asked for syringes. Naturally, he wanted to know what I needed them for. I didn't think I looked like a druggie who was going home to shoot up! I kind of grinned and said I don't want to tell you because you'll think I'm nuts. Well, that just peaked his interest. Finally I begrudgingly admitted I needed to give water to a sick 4 pound dog. Yes, he laughed at me and handed me a handful of syringes.
This is a good depiction of Millie's reaction to my attempt to trick her with a needle full of water
She was not impressed and obviously smarter than I had anticipated. She was having no part of it.
I will have to get her to a vet tomorrow. She hates the vet. Yes, she knows the word. I fact she even knows the street. If we even drive down that street she starts to shake until we drive past the building.
Ok, final confession. I even tried to threaten her. We sat by the water dish and told her we were going to the vet. You know, the place where they put thermometers up your butt and jab you with sharp pointy needles and make you scream like a banchee. BUT you can avoid all that if you just take a drink.......
Shockingly, it didn't work. So it appears we will be recreating this scene with a much smaller version of patient.
More fun at the funny farm!
