i just gave our 15 year old (deaf AND nearly blind) dog, jozee, a treat. i held out my hand with kibble (prescription, mind you!) placed center in palm....she then most timidly nibbled on my index and middle finger, salt seeker that she is...hey! she is, after all, her mama's doggie.
i do so love that girl, despite her dwindling senses and weakness of bladder..
