It’s Sunday Funday! Which means that it’s time to cross another item off of Oreo’s bucket list! Even if its 9pm and his mommy is STILL hungover from the night before :-\ Up today – try a REAL hot dog!
I have been making him pre-cooked hot dogs in the microwave for the past few weeks to hide his medication in, but even as a vegetarian I knew that it wasn’t the same as having a real grilled hot dog. So, I took Oreo to the best place I could think of – Schallers!
Unfortunately for Oreo, he had to wait in the car while I went inside to get his food. He didn’t seem to mind too much – it was somewhat busy, so he had a good time watching people go in and go out of the restaurant.
The plan was to let him eat in the car, but he was too easily distracted, so that didn’t happen. So we went back home, and I set down his hot dog, expecting him to excitedly gobble it up. Instead, he ran upstairs as fast as he could and ate all of the kitty food that Burger hadn’t finished earlier.
Finally, Oreo came back downstairs and started to check out his hot dog. He wasn’t sure about it at first, taking small licks of the ketchup and mustard, and sniffing every inch of it.
Despite his initial reluctance, once he actually gave the hot dog a chance, Oreo LOVED it. Finished it in 3 bites! I got the best video I could of the experience, but sadly the quality isn’t the best because I was trying to coax Oreo to eat for most of it. But, you can check that out here:
He’s been having a hard time chewing lately; I think his teeth are bothering him due to the tumor affecting their roots. I’m so happy that he was able to eat the hot dog as well as he did! He is now passed out next to me, snuggling with one of the toys he picked out at the pet store last week.
