The Vet Says Even Puppies Need Their Teeth Brushed

Saturday, March 29, 2014

We rescued an 8 month old chocolate lab and he is just so sweet. He is 9 months old now and we are the 6th home he has had in his short lifetime. We named him Reese' the peanut butter cup b/c he is chocolate. We have no idea why no one kept him. He had been neutered, micro-chipped and some training. We took him to the vet b/c he had worms and both ears infected. He is now in good condition. The vet said how good he was and couldn't see why no one kept him either. He said all puppies/dogs need to have their teeth brushed each day. He told him to sit and Reese's sat and let the vet brush his teeth. I am posting pictures of the first day we got him (he was about 6 lbs underweight) and some pics of me brushing his teeth....such a sweet boy and we love him already. He really loves us too. and we are so happy to have him.

    I had to come and look! Reese (great name) certainly is a handsome boy and I guess he went through all those homes till he found you. My dogs love the toothpaste but they could live without the brushing part. I hope the Easter Bunny treats Reese well -- of course Reese will have to be good to the Bunny too!

    I am so happy that Reese's is with you. What a darling boy he is! He probably enjoys the loving attention that you are giving to him. He is so cute and well behaved that it is hard to understand why nobody kept him.

    Thank you Cathy.....Asher is so fortunate to have a nice Mom like you. Everyone needs to take good care of their pets who ARE a part of our family. I can tell how much you love Asher.

    How precious! Reese's needed to get to the right home ... YOUR home! I'm so glad he is with you. You're a great doggie Mom!

    Asher loves to have his teeth brushed. He wags his tail when he sees me getting his toothbrush and paste. He knows that comes right after he gets his face washed in the morning. Part of our morning routine. :)

    Have a great weekend, Nancy! And Reese's!
