Half-nelson urine collection method

About a month ago, I was just minding my own business and catching up with an onslaught of email when I got a post that mentioned an apparently secret, technique of doggie urine collection for a medical exam. I understand from the exasperated owner that the dog regarded the container in the owner's hands very suspiciously and would only do her thing when the coast was clear.

After a few days passed, I prompted for an update. I was told that the sample was successfully collected finally. Curious, I asked, how was it done? The description left me laughing! I came away with the impression that it involved doing a half-nelson on the hapless dog and tickling said dog til it peed ... or it went something like that. Anyway, the mental visual was entertaining. :o

Unfortunately, this was not captured on film. So the method, while a success, is still something of a secret.

However, the damage has been done. It's my understanding that a successful collection was obtained at one point earlier, but that Brinks chewed up the first cup. (My puppy ate my homework, Doc!)

Other doggie fun from the same source... Here we see Brinks possibly telling another ASD that she knows where her tickle spots are.

Poor Bungee
(Nyah nyah!)
Brinks is the one in the pink collar, and Maggie is the bigger girl (aka Chew Toy) who looks a little worse for the wear.

Poor, poor Bungee
Patient Maggie. What a sweetheart. :)

Woof! Isn't it always the case of the older ones having to let the younger ones chew on them?

That is a hilarous picture. You should run a caption contest.
