I received a Pup Pal Message from My PUP PAL MANGO and His Mommy!
They wanted to Know...
HOW am I going to Eat with NO TEEFERS?
I know they are SO Concerned about Me!
We sent this Reply...
And thought it would Be a GREAT Post in My Diary,
That OTHERS Might have the Same Concern...
SO Here is Our Reply!
((( TWIRLS ))),
PONCHO VILLA and MOMMY Too!
Hi Mango and Mango's Mommy!
1st of All THANK YOU for the New Rosette!
They Make ME and Mommy SO Happy!
Mom says Everyone Thinks I am SO Special,
And LUCKY to have such WONDERFUL PUP PAL'S!
((( TWIRLS )))!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now My Teeth!!!
Mom was SO Worried When The Doc called her,
And told her that My Gum Disease was SO Bad...
That I lost ALL of My TOP Teeth and all the Front LOWER Teeth!!!
She thought the SAME Thing!
HOW am I going to EAT???
Thinking that It was going to be REALLY ROUGH on ME!
When she came to Pick Me Up...
She was SO SCARED!!!
( She was still CRYING! )
She just did not know WHAT to EXPECT!
Before they came and got Me,
The Doc wanted to speak with Mom and Dad...
To Explain My situation to them,
And Explain My After Care etc.
The Doc told Mom and Dad that I was in MORE Pain before My Surgery,
Then I was right now AFTER Surgery!
He also told Mom...
That right now I had to have a SOFT Diet,
Of "BOILED" Chicken with Rice...
Ground Hamburger/Ground Turkey/Ground Chicken and Rice,
Just as some suggestions.
That was ALL good because that is what Mom makes for Us anyway...
So I LOVE ALL of the above!
I also LOVE My HARD Pellets too though.
Mom asked about them!
The Doc said right now I can only Have SOFT Food.
But in a FEW Weeks,
I can eat My HARD Pellets again!
He said that WE/PUPS do not NEED our Teeth to Chew!
AMAZING isn't it!
That they are More for Self-Defence!
That when My Gums Heal,
They will Harden...
And I will be just FINE!
( Mom says Her Grandmother Ate EVERYTHING without Her Teeth!
She had Dentures,
But Took them Out to EAT!
So even Humans can eat without TEEFERS!
GOOD TO KNOW Huh! SMILE! )
She thought she was going to have to FORCE Feed Me,
And Use a Medicine Dropper to get Water into Me!
When I got HOME,
I was SO Thirsty!!!
I was allowed to Have a LITTLE Bit of Water.
I went to My Bed an Rested...
Then I THOUGHT,
I am HUNGRY TOO!
I went and Nudged Mom,
Like I usually Do!
She and Dad were AMAZED!
Let's give him a LITTLE of His Turkey,
( Mom made a Turkey for Memorial Day Dinner...
The day before MY Surgery,
Just so I would Eat well before I went in...
Since she did not Think I was going to be able to eat when I got out,
And she knows how much I LOVE Turkey!
I eat Chicken Every other day!
So this was a SPECIAL Treat just for ME! )
Mom cut it up REALLY Fine...
And GUESS WHAT???
I ate the ENTIRE Serving.
I even Wanted MORE!!!
But Mom did Not want Me to get Sick and Throw it Up.
The Doc said the First night Home,
To give Me a few SMALL Meals...
And see how I tolerate the Food after the Anesthesia,
As sometimes We will Throw Up!!!
I DID NOT!
I am eating WAAAAYYYYYYYYYY...
Better now then BEFORE My Surgery!
( I just have to Watch I do not Gain the 2 Pounds that I lost Back! )
I Feel and am SO Much Healthier since I lost those 2 Pounds!
MUCH Easier to go on LONG Walks!
I have 1 More Pound to Lose!
Mom was right,
Losing Weight is REALLY Hard!
But she is Helping Me BIG Time!
I am a Lucky Guy!!!
And GUESS What???
Last Night I stole one of Harley's Pellets!
I actually Tried to Eat a HARD Pellet!
But I Tried.
Mom surely does not have to worry about Me Eating...
And either does your Mommy.
Tell her I will let her know when I am Eating EVERYTHING Again!
Especially the HARD Pellets,
Cause MY MOM Just can't believe things until she SEE'S Them!
As you see,
I am doing GREAT Considering what I have been through.
I have a Really DRY Cough,
And Mom was Scared...
So she called the Doc!
He told her that Because of the Surgery and the Anesthesia,
They put a Tube down My Throat to help Me Breathe...
And that Tube Cause Me some irritation.
It should heal in a few days.
Other than that...
I am on My way to a FULL RECOVERY!
I am getting Stronger each and EVERY Day!
Thanks for Being My PUP PAL,
And being Concerned about Me!
I hope I helped Ease your Mommy's Mind!
I think this may be a GOOD Post for My Diary as well...
It may Help other Mommy's and Daddy's,
To Be a Bit at Ease incase their Babies have to Have Dental Work Done.
It is MORE Painful BEFORE Surgery than After!
Off to Have some Breakfast!
Have a GREAT Day!!!

And ((( HUGS ))),

I JUST GOT THE CALL!
Poncho is Out of Surgery!
Poncho lost ALL of his TOP Teeth,
And a FEW of his Bottom Teeth.
The Infection is Still Pretty Bad,
And his will remain on Antibiotics...
As well as PAIN Medication.
The Doc said he is Still VERY GROGGY...
But he DID pull through the Surgery.
I have to Call back after 4 P.M. to see if they want Him to Come Home today,
Or if they want to Keep him Overnight.
I would like him to come Home,
But I know that the Vet will only do what is BEST for PONCHO...
And I accept that.
I too want what is BEST for Poncho!!!
I am SO Thankful that he Pulled through,
And Let's Hope its all a SPEEDY Recovery from here!!!
You know I will be updating SOON!
Thank You for ALL of your LOVING,
Caring, Thoughtful Messages and PRAYERS!
((( BIG HUGS ))),
And ((( TWIRLS ))) from PONCHO!
