Honey has lots of uses

We are trying to encourage Grace to accept having honey syringed into her mouth. We need this for Thursday when the vet is coming to do her teeth (and help me get her shoes off).

So far she has learnt to touch the syringe, mouth it and to take the tip between her lips. She has also learnt to like the taste of honey (this was much harder than getting her to accept the syringe). Putting the two together might be asking too much.

So far on the odd occasion when I have managed to squirt a little honey into her mouth its come right back out accompanied by a very pronounced flehmen response.

We are making progress - her aim has improved dramatically and now she can get most of it in my hair with one swift spit...
