Kylie's teeth: Quality, not Quantity



THAT DOG (or, more accurately, THAT DOG MINUS ONE SMALL TOOTH) is recovering splendidly from yesterday's surgery - she thanks you for the good wishes :) As you can see from this photo, the Vet shaved a big chuck of her leg to insert the IV, which adds a poodle-like quality to her already multicultural image. She is not pleased. Compare her to a greyhound, a beagle, even a chihuahua if you must, but don't call her a poodle; she gets riled up.

Really, though, she has little to be embarrassed about. Her fur will grow back, and the Vet polished her remaining teeth while he was in there, so now she looks like an ad for Crest Whitestrips. Honestly, if I ever need my appendix removed or some other surgery, I think I'll ask him to scrub in and do my teeth, cause clearly, this guy's got skills. That said, however, I hope to never see him again, as doggie dentistry is muy expensivo. THAT DOG needs to get some modeling work PDQ to earn her keep :)

Poor dog. She's warm everywhere but that one part of her leg :(

So Kylie has sparkling teeth now. That's fortunate since she has to go to work as a model.

Poor thing! Hopefully she'll be good as new soon. Pets and what they cost can certainly floor a person, hey? All the best from a Canadian author who loves her two cats and Newfoundland dog...

Good to know she's doing so great!

Thanks for visiting my blog! Sorry about the tooth. I'd love my cats to lose a few sharp appendages!

Hope she recovers quickly!

Good luck getting her to hold up her end. We've suggested calendar modeling to Cindy, but she pretends not to hear. :) Glad all is well!!

May I suggest legwarmers? :)

Aw, poor thing. Glad she's doing well though.

I'd like to see the Crest Whitestrips look on your dog. Well, really, any dog, but I'm sure yours looks simply smashing!

She's so cute. I wish I could have made it out there to give her some smooches in person. Next time.

She's awfully cute. What kind of dog is she?
