Pooch Makes Pillow Out of Pill-Filled Sandwich

Employees at a veterinary hospital in Mission Viejo, California, attempting to trick an Australian shepherd into taking his medications by hiding them in various sandwiches were amused to later spot the clever canine using the food as a pillow.

A kennel attendant at Alicia Pet Care Center recorded this video showing Bandit quickly pulling his head away after sniffing the suspicious sandwich. The next clip shows him laying his head on the soft bread.

“Bandit was boarding with us for a little less than a week over the holidays,” the center told Storyful. “We tried turkey sandwiches, peanut butter turkey sandwiches, peanut butter only wrapped around the pill. He finally took the pill after two of our doctors wrapped it up in a meatball, without him seeing, while he was on a walk. He took it as he was coming back inside!” Credit: Alicia Pet Care Center via Storyful
