Addie isn't a chewer...she doesn't go for toys, or hedgies, or nylabones. Jake's teeth are white as snow because he does all these things...but Addie's mouth is a nightmare. She had her teeth'professionally' cleaned several years ago. I hate to have her put to sleep to have it done as her heartbeat is irregular occasionally.
But....her teeth are so awful...so discolored...nasty. Ahem, a mama hates to admit this about one of her furkids....but....believe me, the corgi dog tooth fairy would skip our house if she ever lost a tooth!
Anyhoo....what do you other corgi moms do about your kids teeth? Do you brush them?
Something has to be done, her gums are starting to look bad. Am I going to have to bite the bullet and take her in again and let the vet tech do a serious cleaning and them go from there? Please comment and let me know what you'd do.
Here's the face I get when I trim her dewclaws. Since she was going to be used for breeding from her previous owner, but never went into heat, which is why she was given to us....they did not remove her dewclaws. It's a bother I must say to keep them trimmed.
(My photo date thingie is off by six years for some reason. It happened when I changed the batteries in the camera. Anyone know how to totally remove the date from photos?)
Yesterday Jim and I trimmed back a couple of trees in the back yard. A redbud and maple were trimmed, and an annoying, bird planted six foot cedar tree was removed totally. Ahhh more sunshine in the flower beds and room now to do my straw bale gardening. More on that later. We added new river rock on each side of the back door, and stocked up on my gardening needs at Menard's. We were SO pleased to see the little American flag on many, many packages there. Menard's is trying to stock as many American made products as possible, we were 'totally' impressed! It's a huge store in the next town eighteen miles away. Jim put a doorbell up last night and fixed the latch on the front door. His honey-do list is shrinking! What a good boy!
