"What’s a dog Momma? Thought I was an asshole?"

Ok, admittedly, the dogs (the boys especially) may respond to commands like “hey, assholes” and “jackasses, come”….

Story Time:

One time, when my dad was…

I love a good story time. :)

moonstarcorgis and twosillycorgis both mentioned that the apartment management is supposed to give 24 hr notice before coming in to inspect.

Well, they didn’t. Not sure I can do much about that. And they didn’t leave a note so I have no clue if they even came by.

A little stressed this morning because we got a note on our door last night from management saying they were going to be inspecting apartments today. Thanks for the last minute notice! So to keep the boys safe we have T closed in the bedroom and JP gated in the loft. I just hate not being there to make sure nothing happens to my boys.

There’s something on your nose.

It really depends on the type of dog. Different dogs have different genes which affect their teeth. Some breeds like yorkies may need dental cleanings every 6 months. Other dogs may only need it every 2-3 years or less. You really need to check their teeth and see how much tartar they have and if they have gingivitis (gums will be red near the teeth). Chances are if they have bad breath they need a dental cleaning. If you are unsure, ask your vet at your next check up. Yearly cleanings are recommended but some dogs really don’t need it that often. I work as a vet assistant so just thought I’d help answer the question!

Thanks baronvonwaffles!

This was JP’s first dental cleaning, and he’s three years old. We *try* to brush his teeth but mostly we just default to giving him regular dental chews/treats (and we will honestly try to step up the teeth brushing now to maintain his new pearly whites). The vet recommended he come back for another in 1-2 years.

Idk what the recommended frequency for teeth cleaning is… since they have to go under anesthesia it’s not something that should be done too frequently (and JP had to have blood work and a urine test to clear him for the procedure). I know corgiaddict's Pudge has had his teeth cleaned before and I believe that Gatsby and Scout of gatsbyadventures get their teeth brushed regularly (and Scout just had a dental procedure done), so they can weigh in too. Although maybe this was more information than you wanted? O.o

Hey thingsonhazelshead, how are we doing?

JP’s teeth cleaning went well! His teeth are extra pearly and he’s extra groggy. But he did really well at the vet (Kevin said he happily went back with the vet tech - it broke Kevin’s heart to see his little boy forget him so easily!).

Toven has been super stressed about his brofur. He’s been drooling - a lot. Keeping an eye on him since 10 thousand things could cause excessive drooling in cats (dental problems to bee stings to being too relaxed). But I’m betting that JP coming home drugged up and smelling funny is what’s done it. Cats are so delicate! They’re like flowers with teeth.

JP is getting his teeth cleaned today and I’m glad because the plaque was getting bad but I’m worried because MAH BABY.

Where are you JP?!

Derp.
