Have you ever tried giving your dog some meds? If you have, then you know that it can be quite a challenge. Most of the time, it ends up with a lot of squabble and some spilled meds.
This story is about Brutus the dog and his owner Brett Bennett. They are from Seattle, Washington. Brutus has arthritis so he has to take some pain relievers that are taken orally.
Brutus can be quite a stubborn dog. This rottweiler does everything he can to not take his meds. He even has tried to spit them out even if he has already made them get inside his throat.
One of the times that Brutus has to take his meds, Brutus has seemingly thought of a technique that would make him avoid the whole experience. Brett took the meds that Brutus has to take and when he came back, he saw Brutus lying down.
This is something that Brutus has not done before. However, what was different was that Brutus surely was awake but he did not move an inch. Brett even called Brutus by his name but Brutus just lay there.
Brutus was playing dead! He was frozen on the floor and he was really good at acting.
Brett even tried to tell Brutus that they would be going out for a walk if he took his meds. But it does seem like Brutus did not even hear a thing.
Maybe Brutus is thinking that if he kept on acting like that, his owner would not give him any of the meds and he would be a free dog. Pretty funny dog indeed.
Hats off to Brutus for his great acting job. I would have been laughing my heart out if this was my dog. Watch how the whole thing went in this video.
