I'm getting my teeth WHAT???

Tonight Mom went outside in the yard with me after she fed me because it was such a pretty day. I saw Miss Cindy in her yard playing basketball with her son. Not only is she one of my favorite people but she plays basketball too! Well, naturally I HAD to go see her so Mom took me over to where she was and let me say Hi. I just love Miss Cindy so much, she always smells so wonderful and she is so nice.

Mom asked Cindy if I could get me teeth cleaned. Miss Cindy said yes, I could get my teeth cleaned and that she would sedate me and maybe even give me an IV if my blood wasn't good. Blood, and sedate and IV and clean my teeth ... all in one sentence??? I am not sure what all that means but it doesn't sound too good. Does anydog know what she is talking about? Is it worse than getting your teeth brushed, because if it is I want no part of it. Speaking of which, you have to look at this dog getting his teeth brushed because you aren't taking my picture LIKE THAT!

Maybe Miss Cindy is not so nice after all. I like my teeth just the way they are, thank you very much.

PS This dog's hair on his ears is WAY too short for a long haired daschund, don't you think? He must have gotten a bad haircut.

Sammy has had his teeth cleaned twice since he came to live with Mom. Mom gives us tarter control biscuits which are supposed to be hard enough to help keep your teeth clean but Sammy doesn't chew anything more than twice to break it up so he can swallow it almost whole! Anyway, Sammy says the worst part is no treats at night and no breakfast in the morning. After that, you take a nap and, when you wake up, your teeth are clean ... and you are hungry if your tummy isn't too upset. The people at Miss Cindy's office will probably let you out to wander around once you are awake and feel better. The people at our doctor's office even gave Sammy a little bit of food occassionally. He REALLY liked that but he was happiest when Mom showed up to take him home.

I've never had my teeth cleaned but it doesn't sound good at all! Good luck. My sister is a mini long haired and she has short hair on her ears because Mom keeps cutting them. Sasha likes to roll in the dirt and weeds and her ear hair and tail hair are always getting tangled up. Mom can't cut straight either which makes Sasha really mad.

I never had my teeth clean either. I hope it doesn't hurt *ouchie* too much. But since Ms Cindy will be the one doing the job, I think she'll take extra good care of you don't you agree?
PS : My hair isn't that long either but recently my Mom trimmed the hair around my BUTT and now I have an uneven looking butt. Can you believe the NERVE of that wooman?

The human woman has made mention that I am in need of a teeth cleaning myself. Something about "blood work when my shots are due" and also something about "while she's under, trim those beastly claws" or some such nonsense.

Lucky for me I'm not due for shots until April, so I still have time to claw her.

Good luck with the cleaning




You be a brave little man & be good when you get your teethies cleaned. You don't want to walk around toothless & not get to eat anymore treat, da you?

Me gets it done once a year & they knock ya out and ya don't feel a thing. Then you can act like it was terrible & your Mommy will give ya lots of wirks every time.

Love Mona
