Kennady and Alex had always known that their dog, Sullivan, was a smart one. He figured things out faster than most other dogs and at just a 1-and-a-half years old, they knew that he was only going to get smarter. They loved him absolutely, so when he began chocking and coughing in the mornings, they knew he needed medical attention…but it turns out that their adorable dog was a giant troll!After Kennady heard her dog begin to choke before she left for work one day, she panicked.
I started frantically googling dog CPR and tried looking down his throat, all while he was acting completely normal. He was wagging his tail and running around and just wanted to play but also kept making this horrific noise. I called my husband freaking out and told him what was happening and that I needed to leave for work but didn’t want to leave him alone, so my husband rushed home to be with him.” She wrote.
He stayed with their dog all afternoon and didn’t notice anymore of the strange behavior…but the next morning, that same cough was back. He decided to work from home that day and scheduled a trip to the vet.
After numerous tests and an $85 bill saying that their dog was perfectly healthy, they began to call around and see if any other clinics had heard of these symptoms.
They all said the same thing…
…a few really smart animals know how to use and abuse the system. After the vet, I think Sully knew that we knew he was a big old faker, so he stopped because he didn’t want to have to go to the vet again, ha!”
Faking an illness to stay home from school is one thing, but faking an illness to keep your humans around is something else entirely!
