Well, yesterday started off like any other day……..breakfast, drink, a bit of play and belly rubs, and a walk. But while walking, my Dad noticed that my lower, left canine was looking funny – in fact, it was sticking out of my mouth! Next thing I know, I’m at the vet! Then I hear something about “too tough a job for him” and “doggie dentist!” No way! Then we’re back in the truck, and I was thinking, “Ahhh….they forgot about the doggie dentist and we’re going to the agility course,” but no! We went to the animal dental specialist. Now, I will say that everyone was real nice, but I did not enjoy my time there! Seems as if when I was tugging (probably Sunday morning), I broke my canine tooth.**
So next thing I know – it’s root canal time! Yes, you read right – a root canal! Now I don’t remember much, but I remember going to the back room with a nice woman, then waking up with my mouth hurting and my tongue in a weird spot, feeling funny like it didn’t fit in my mouth right anymore. Mom & Dad picked me up (and when they saw the bill – yikes! I had better be on my best, and I mean my absolutely best, behavior for the next day or so) and I got to go home that same day.
Today I feel much better – I ate my breakfast, drank a ton, and have been sleeping lots. I’m trying to look extra-special cute, even pathetic if possible (keeping in mind the bill), but I’m sure within a day or two I’ll be back to my old self, looking for a toy to destroy.
Oh, I did put my tooth under my pillow last night, but the tooth fairy did not seem to come……..
** A bit of history – when I was adopted by my current Mom & Dad, my teeth looked horrible. Now I know what happened, but of course I can’t articulate as much, but their theory (and that of the veterinarians they’ve asked over the years), is that in my previous home I was kenneled inappropriately and chewed on the wire kennel compulsively, causing some serious teeth damage, especially the back of my canines – both upper & lower. This has caused weakness in those teeth, thus the strange breakage.

No, I'm not conceited, but have you been reading this blog lately? I am great at TUNNELING, great at THE RAMP, and now getting better (I'll admit, not great yet) at JUMP!!! Now that we've found this agility course, I go a few times a week. Lucky, lucky me!!!

Here I am on THE RAMP! We went back to the fun agility course this morning and I had so much fun! I still enjoyed TUNNEL and even did some jumping (pictures of that another time) and now I am an expert on THE RAMP! I went up and down and up and down and up and down...... You get the idea! There are even more fun things there to learn as well - I overheard Mom & Dad saying that we'll go again this week - I cannot wait!!!!
