So, I turned a big ole FOUR years old and I'm still spritely as a pup and love doing my zoomies around the back yard, above ground pool! My birthday went well, but it was a bit understated as mom was under the weather due to a recent colonoscopy and polyps removed. Non cancerous so YAY! Then she got an infection, so my birthday was very low key. My human sis, Rose (the one who takes me on lots of neighborhood walks)brought me a tiny dinosaur that squeeks in a lovely high pitch (love those squeekers!)and mom had ordered through the mail a great big ole bags of pigs ears for me. YAY!! Oh, I also got rushed to the vet last week due to a scare. Seems mom was checking my mouth and freaked out big time when she saw a huge grey swelling on my right incisor. Mom felt so very bad when she spotted it as she always checks the pads of my feet, in my ears and my gum line and teeth every few days. She was so scared I was in pain! We got into my vets the same day and Dr.Hill said my teeth were in great shape for a tiny dog of four years! Just a touch of tartar (mom was mortified, but the vet was very happy)and he checked in my ears where I'd been scratching a bit. He took a swab of stuff in my ears and nope, no infection. YAY! But there was some redness and inflamation. Dr.HIll said probably allergies, which I have alot of, and gave me two shots. One for inflammation and the other an antibiotic, long acting, in case something was brewing. AND yes, my teeth were thorougly checked and the doc used his nail and scraped that big chuck of roast beef right off my tooth!!! Mom was so relieved she just laughed and laughed at herself. BOL! Even though I get stuff in my water to prevent teeth issues, now I get my teeth brushed with a teeny tiny toothbrush and chicken flavored dog toothpaste every single day. I don't like it much, but I'm getting used to it. Doc said that if we don't pull a leftover baby tooth thats crowding one of my incisors, that food will get stuck in there and cause problems. Well, not with mom on daily toothbrush duty!! She's afraid that the general anaestestia might hurt me as she's read alot online of folks taking their dogs in for dental services under general sleepy time and them not waking up. We are SO NOT HAVING THAT!!! I'm planning on being around a long, long time, so I guess I've got to suck it up and get used to getting my teeth brushed. Oh and my next door neighbor adopted a new 5 month old rescue, mixed breed black colored, lovely pup named Nico! He's soooo cute! Can't wait to sniff him as mom sais he's really friendly but he looks sooo huge to me! He's about 9 pounds already, so next to me he's HUGE. But as long as he's nice, it's all good. That's all for now, take care folks! Oops, forgot to tell you I've got a tiny white beard now! Mom sais it's so cute!!
