It’s never OK to lie, with one exception: It is OK, even noble, to lie to your dog to make them feel included.
To see this ethical rule in practice, please watch this video from @chloecopley_05 on Twitter. Apparently, one of her dogs has to take ear medicine, which makes her other dog jealous. (We assume this is because each dose comes with a complimentary ear rub.)
