Maya and Mysore pak

Our dog Maya loves anything that taste sweet (which I’m not sure all dogs come under this category) and whenever we have something she used to bark which means she needs some bit too. We rarely offer her some piece of sweet or cakes or cookies made of chocolate to satisfy her unending desire and to make her have medicine or tablet we used to hide it inside the sweet or chocolate because she never took easily orally a medicine. Sometime we voluntarily drop a tablet in front of her and pretend to pick it up where she swiftly act and take the tablet in mouth. Rarely she eats the sweet alone and split the tablets separately.


We don’t keep down things Maya is interested on when she was on loose and sometime she behaves senseless picking anything from the house dustbin. Two days back, relatives visited us and they brought a sweet box and some fruits which mom had left on the floor in thought Maya were tied and forget to shift things from there. When we saw later everything was fished off the sweet box. Maya had eat 1/4kg of the Mysore Pak and looked with a weighted tummy as if having offsprings and also found difficult to walk. We really thought/worried what going to happen to her as she already have wheezing and weaker heart and this heavy loaded Mysore Pak (made of generous amounts of ghee and sugar) could cause anything. But glad she’s doing well and turned normal next day after couple of toilet visits.

About Mysore Pak: It was originally called as Mysuru Paaka, in which Mysuru indicates the city of Mysore, in the Indian state of Karnataka and Paaka means sweet syrup, is a popular Indian sweet made of ghee, sugar, gram flour and cardamom.

Maya is a sweet dog, very pretty photo. I hope she does not get sick from eating things that are not good for dogs. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post today. Happy Saturday and have a great weekend. PS, thanks for the comment on my blog.

It is a wonderful dog. White dogs are great and this one knows what it wants to eat for sure. Our dog goes through cycles as to what it wants to beg for and maybe receive.

Chocolate is poisonous to some dogs so very happy to hear she is okay.

What a cute dog. Our dog used to pick out the pill too from his food. We used to roll it up in a piece of meat and then freeze it. When it was time for the medication, we fed him that. Most times it worked because it was frozen. Dogs are very smart though and it doesn't take long for them to figure out the preocess. then you must have a plan B. :)

Oh goodness! Dogs will get into anything. We had a dog that ate a whole tray of baklava- which is a very sweet Greek pastry. Fortunately she did t get sick, we were somewhat amazed. I’m glad Maya is doing well! I’ve never heard of Mysore pak, but is sounds delicious!

Maya is very cute, but I hope her sweet tooth doesn't get her into more trouble.
