Shiba Inu Plays Dead To Avoid Going To The Vet, Only Treats Can Revive Her I've seen dogs play dead on command, but never to avoid the vet 😂
Lulu, the Shiba Inu, was scheduled to go to the vet to be spayed. But like many dogs, she went out of her way to avoid the vet clinic.
Lulu was comfy in bed as her owner walked into the room and tried to wake her by saying “Morning, Lulu … you gonna wake up?” Lulu didn’t move a muscle. Lulu’s mom moved her arm, gently shook her and rubbed her chest to rouse her. Lulu didn’t even open her eyes!
Lulu’s mom asked “Are you playing dead? Are you playing dead, so you don’t have to go to the vet’s?” Still no response! Lulu’s mom decided that pulling back the blanket might annoy her enough to stir. “Oh, no blanket,” she exclaimed. Yet again, Lulu remained motionless, eyes closed.
Not one to give up easily, Lulu’s mom reaches deep into her bag of tricks by reaching for a bag of treats! She says “Dead puppies don’t get treats, Lulu. And look what I have here. I have some treats.” Like a miracle, Lulu sprang back to life with the prospect of tasty morsels and her mom was victorious in getting her out of bed in time for her vet appointment. All is well!
