Stoic the Pill Eater

About two weeks ago Stoic tested positive for exposure to Lyme's and Anaplasmosis.

Given his origin and providence were unknown, I should have done the test earlier, but we did get it done and the course of treatment is a rather long but inexpensive course of Doxacycline.

The first morning I tried to force the medication down as I've done with every other dog I've known for over thirty-years.  He coughed them up but instead of spitting them out, he chewed them up and swallowed.

Since then it became obvious, there was an easier way to get this dog to take his antibiotics.
