Stay of execution!

I went to the VET and I survived. I walked in and there were these two crazy rat terriers all jumping in my face and yelling at their Mom and being BAD. I just looked at them and was like, whatever, I am the best.

Finally this VET tech girl came out and was like, OMG didn't he have surgery on his paw, and I was like that was the DOOFUS FACE and I do NOT look like him at ALL. I almost took a dump on the floor right then and there. But then she asked how old I was and Mom said almost 9 and she said BOY do I look great for 9. (I think she was referring to your teeth, Joey -Mom) So she was digging around in my mouth and Mom showed her the GUNK in the front and she jammed her fingernail in my mouth and went SCRAPE and I went WTF?! Then she took me in the back to get the opinion of my VET (she was doing surgery!) and they continued to torture me and got most of the gunk out. They said I probably don't need to go for a cleaning for at least 6 months to a year. Mom was happy that they didn't charge us and I would have to agree since it was TORTURE. The VET also said to buy me more chew bones, maybe she is not so bad after all. SO we went to PetSmart WITHOUT the Doofus!!

I picked these chews because we can't have regular rawhide because the doofus tries to swallow it whole.

what else did I pick you might ask??


Hm, these sure are good, I made a good choice.

This tooth cleaning is better than that stinking teeth scraping the VET did.

Oh and Mom bought this for herself!

Ok I am off to go celebrate!!

Tell your mom that Bark is a great magazine! "Dog is my co-pilot!"

I'm glad you don't have to go back for teeth scraping for a while--it doesn't sound like fun.

Hey Joey!
Sorry to hear that you got tortured at the vet, but so good that you don't have to go back soon. And you got to go to PetSmart, woo!! Do you recommend those chewies you got? I like to chew and swallow everything too... like my corn cob. Am I not supposed to eat that?
Love Clover xo

That is great news, Joe! No teeth cleaning, AND a trip to get some new treats! That's awesome. Too bad they confused you with the Doofus. Maybe you should have bit her. Would that help clean your teeth?

Your friend, Lenny
