It was with great excitement that I ripped open our box of The Doggy Fountain of Youth and realized that Chi Chi would not eat it.
I tried mixing it with her dog food. She turned her crusty nose up at her food dish for two feedings in a row and I started worrying that I was going to starve her in the quest for eternal life. I mixed it with some berry flavored yogurt but no dice.
Sweety brought me some vanilla yogurt (I thought that maybe the scent of the berry kind was too overpowering for her.) and she turned her nose at that too. In an effort to get her to eat the magical elixir - I offered her some on my finger.
She ate it all.
Feeding Chi Chi the magic potion is something that I've been doing in the evening with her. It's our time to bond.
See that brown bowl on the table? That's one of the things that I told my Grandma that I wanted when she asked what I wanted before she died. I like to feed Chi Chi from Grandma's bowls because she (in her bug-eyed, confused way) reminds me of Grandma.
Have I mentioned that I adore this little canine?
