I'm so lucky to have so many furiends!

Thursday, November 12, 2009


My grandma came home from the hospital yesterday and I was very happy to see her as you can tell from the photos.
She started getting sick today and couldn't keep anything down. She had to go back to the hospital and they admitted her again. We aren't sure what is going on but I told Mom I wanted to update you guys since you have been asking about her.

Besides all that I was drugged today!
Momma and Daddy admit they have been bad parents and were not taking care of my teeth the way they should be. Last time I had my check-up Dr. Abby said I needed to have my teeth cleaned as soon as possible. Well.....today was the day. Mom thought about taking before and after photos but she didn't want any of my furiends to know how terrible my teeth looked. AND, she said it is all her fault. I do admit, I wasn't very cooperative when I was younger and she tried brushing my teeth. She even started trying when I was a puppy but I wanted nothing to do with that. Please don't tell her that I'm taking part of the blame.
I guess I am not very tolerant of morphine because Dr. Abby said as soon as she gave it to me I started acting like I was drunk. Apparently it was funny enough that they took a picture of me for my blog! Mom said she would post it when she gets it. When Mom came to pick me up I couldn't even keep my tongue in my mouth and I was drooling all over the place. I never drool! Thank DoG Mom did not get a photo of that! How embarrassing!
I have heard a little giggling around here this evening and Momma said I looked 'stoned'. I don't know what that means but they seem to find it funny. Oh, well, I don't really care right now anyway.
I had to have one tooth removed today :o(
Mom said she was afraid it would be more than that. I do have gum disease and some infection in there. So, you youngsters out there don't argue with your parents when they are trying to take care of your pearly whites.
You can see my pearly whites in that photo sorta. Believe me when I tell you they were brown this morning.
Before I go pass out, here is a photo for Flower Friday in the morning.

Hi Twix!

I bet your grandma was sure glad to see you too.
I'm sure that your teeth are just beautiful now that you had them cleaned, as for the drooling thing, we will just forget about that.

Twix, I am sorry to read that your Grandma is back in the hospital, I hope she comes home for good very soon. You look sooooooooo sleepy and so cute. I am pretty good with my teeth. One of my favorite toys is a toothbrush. Honest a childs toothbrush, I love to chew on it and it seems to keep my teeth nice, cause the Vet Lady said I have nice teeth. I am sorry about your tooth, but maybe the tooth fairy will bring you something.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

We could see what excellent care you were taking of her too.
We hope she is soon feeling better and back home for you to cuddle.

Hope you are back to normal now.

Twix, Thank you so much for reminding evefurone it is so important to take good care of your teeth - we are not sharks and this is the only set we will get.

We hate to hear that your Grandma had to go back to the hospital, but that is the best place for her if she is feeling sick.

Hi Twix,

We hope you grandma gets better soon. I'm sure seeing you was great medicine.

Sorry about the toofers. You be sure and put that one under your pillow so you can get a treat. Sugarless of course. BOL

Banjo is starting to get yellow teeth way in the back. His noggin is so small his teeth hardly have room. Mine are nice and white. I tell mom it's cause I chew on bully sticks all the time so she will give them to me more often. BOL


Frankie Furter said...

Hi Twix, So sorry to hear that grandma had to go back to the vet place. I know they will take good care of her. After all they made your teefs all good as new, didn't they.
PeeS. I don't like brushing much either, butt I will follow your wise advice. Thanks for caring about all of US.
Paws are crossed for you and your family.

We are so sorry to hear about your Grandma; continued prayers for her.
And, sweetie, you have nothing to feel bad about; having one tooth removed is not the end of the world!
Poor Xena - is having her remaining 8 teeth extracted next month! And Oskar is having a dental (shhh!) next week!
Hopefully, you will feel much better soon!

Madi and Mom said...

Hi Twix and Mom,
Thank you for the update on your Grandma. Madi and I are very sorry she is back in the hospital. My mom was very sick a year ago so I understand all that you are going through. Please give her our best wishes.

I'm sorry but those are some funny pictures of you. Oh my word you are a wee little girl so I expect the drugs knocked you for a loop.
We hope your world stops rocking and rolling soon.
The good news is you are vertically challenged so you don't have far to fall.
LOL. Madi that was mean!!! Sorry Twix she got on the keyboard before I could stop her.
Madi and Mom

Hi Twix!
We´re so sorry to hear about your Grandma. Hope she gets better very soon!
Sorry about your teeth too. Hope you feels better soon!

BRUTUS said...

Poor girl! These pawrents of ours have no shame.... Wait till we figure out how to work the camera, and see what we decide to post, right?
Sorry to hear about the teeth - so many doggies having problems lately. Mom says (and she's a human tooth doctor) that we little doggies are extra susceptible to periodontal (gum) disease, so it IS really important to take extra care of our toofers! Hope you are smiling again soon, Twix!

We're still praying for your Grandma. Let us know, how she's doing.

Our teeth are still clean and pretty, but we are still VERY young. Our brother, Jack's, teeth are a different story.

Woofs and Kisses!

Nadine said...

Awww Twix, so sorry about your granny going back in, but it looked like you gave her much comfort and love!

We hate having our teeth brushed too, we fight Mom so much that toothpaste ends up all over the place, BOL!

Waggles and Chi kisses, Chewy & Lilibell

Pee Ess Drool? What drool? We never heard that, ssshhhhhhh.

Cocorue said...

oh Twix, sorry about grandma and i hope she's resting well in the hospital. i hope she'll be out before your next post.

my mouth is so small dadster uses doggie toothpaste on his finger to clean my teeth and i eat the delish paste......so no cleaning done bol...

the rate i'm going, i'd probably be toothless before i grow old????? must check with Brutus's mumster.

you do look slightly "high"......good feeling huh......i drink beer or wine to look like THAT

Andy prefers dental bones and rawhide with tarter control to the toothbrush but the vet always says he's got great teeth. Maybe those work? Bet you'd like 'em better than the toothbrush, too.
Nothing in the world more hilarious than a doped-up weenie dog. Thanks for the pictures.

Fiona, as typed by Dr. Liz said...

Teehee! You look Very Silly in those drugged pictures! Mom uses the Science Diet dental food for me, and tries to brush my teeth (TaiChi's teeth are pretty bad, but at 18, what do you expect? At 20, Mr. Bufus doesn't have ANY teeth!), with varying degrees of success, depending on the day. At least I let her put her fingers in my mouth without biting (too hard) on them. Enjoy your druggie time!

*kissey face*

Hi Twix
We hope your grandma is doing better now. We are sending healing rayz for both you and her.
We brush. We like the chicken flavoured tooth paste.
Love Ruby & Penny

SEDONA said...

Hey Twixie, thanks for letting us know about all your goings-on...lots happening in your house. So sorry to hear about your grandma needing to go back but at the same time, that's the best place to be for getting her well. Hope your toofees aren't too sore after all that "attention"...you scared me into letting my human brush mine *really* well next time! Hope you have pleasant dreams :-)
Your pal,

The Army of Four said...

We're saying more prayers for your grandma, Twix! And for you, too. That Tooth Fairy really knocked you for a loop!
Play bows,

Cloud the Wonder Dog said...

It looked like you were really glad to see your grandma, Twix. I'm so sorry she had to go back in. I hope she is all better real soon. And I'm sorry you got drugged, but I guess it's better than having the v.e.t. work on your teeth while you're awake, eh? I bet your teeth feel really good to you now, so that's a good thing! :-)


Courtney said...


I'm sure that you were the highlight of your grandma's day today. Puppy love really is the best medicine. As for your "pearly whites"...just think how big you can smile for all of your blog pictures now! Can't wait to see. I highly doubt that you were drooling, and I think it's just crazy that any human would accuse you of such!
Puppy Kisses.....mmmm, your breath is so fresh!

I hope you are recovered now!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

We are so sorry that your Grandma had to go back to the hospital, but thank you for letting us see you with her. Too bad about the teeth cleaning but in the end it is really a good thing. Phantom had his done last spring and he had to have one tooth removed too. We bet you will be back to your good old self tomorrow.

Hugs, the OP Pack

I hope your grandma feels better soon! I know that you will make her feel better when she comes home.

Sorry to hear about your teeth. Mom said she has an appointment for me to get my teeth cleaned in January.

Oh Twix! I hope you are feeling up to par soon! It's a good thing that you got your teeth taken care of! I'm sure you'll be back to yourself in no time!
