Poor Bubba

My poor Bubba (Riley) has to have oral surgery. Mom and the vet found a lose tooth and maybe another rotten one that may have to be pulled. He seems like he feels ok. He is drooling a little more lately. Mommy is so embarrassed. She is usually on top of our teeth all the time. She's not sure how this slipped her eyes. Us old dogs are gettting expensive. My annual exam and vaccines where scheduled for this week but mom had to cancel cause of all the stuff Riley will be having done. I was just seen and had surgery in January, so I don't really need to see the Dr and have bloodwork done. Mom likes to have it done on me every 6 months cause of my history with cancerous masses. But I am mass free since my last surgery so we just did vaccines today. We can wait a month to do bloodwork. Since we moved mom has had to be careful with how much she spends on us. She works for the vet so it's not as expensive as normal but still. None of us have had to had any teeth pulled. Me and Joe have had normal dentals done. Sophie split one of my incisors during a fight so I am missing one tooth. But that is not the same. Did you know that the Dr has to cut the molar in 1/2 to pull it? Yuck! Riley is really sensitive to narcotics and howls uncontrolably when he wakes up from anesthetic, and when he gets home he wanders for hours, just whimpering and whinning. Then I feel bad, so I try to give him attention but he doesn't want it. I guess we'll just wait and see how he handles it this time. Glad my teeth are pearly white!!!!
