1000 reasons to brush your dogs teeth!


Look at this face. This poor, sad, hurting, tired face. Rimmy came home today from his dental yesterday. Poor guy had thirteen teeth pulled! Thirteen!! He is one hurting puppy.

They kept him overnight on pain meds and to keep an eye on him. Trac went with me to pick him up and OMG when they brought Rim in the room he looked so pathetic!! Our hearts just broke looking at him and then....his tongue fell out the side of his mouth. We couldn't help it, but we laughed.

Rim came home took a huge drink of water and went immediately to the couch. I gave him some warmed up tuna mix I made for the dogs dinner and he zonked out. He hasn't moved since except to potty once. Thank God they sent home pain meds for my little pooper scooper.

Tomorrow I am sure he will feel much better and hopefully be back to his silly self.

Poor Rim, he definitely was miserable. Good thing is that teeth heal fast and he should be back to his fretting, biting, molesting self soon. :-)
