Soon after we adopted Mulligan, we began celebrating his birthday each year with ice cream cones for each of us. This probably helped forge his early connection to car riding and happy events. At any rate, he is always up for a ride in the car. Unfortunately for him, sometimes our rides take us past the ice cream place to the vet’s office. These are two vastly different destinations: one anticipated, the other-not so much! Yet he never balks at an invitation to ride in the car. To him, all trips are ice cream opportunities, and, if once in a while he is disappointed when the car stops at the vet’s, he is willing to take that risk rather than miss a trip to get ice cream.
