Putting the Pearls in Pearly Whites

The hoomans went to someone called a dentist last Tuesday. Manong kept mulling over not wanting to get a “root canal” and get a crowning instead…. While manang kept on talking about dental fillings, etc.

Frankly, I did not understand a thing nor do I find any of it interesting. Ok. Maybe I find the filling part interesting. They remind me of those succulent cheese tarts that the hoomans would bring after every long vacation. Mmmmm….

Ok, back to the topic.

So the hoomans visited the dentist for 2 straight days and they returned last night with empty pockets and bleeding gums. (sorry to be so graphic). I looked at the dental bills and gasped. They could have practically bought 6 sacks of kibbles with the amount of money that they spent to spruce up 3 measly pieces of lousy hooman tooth! And they spent all that in less than 6 hours, whereas Poopie and I had to stretch our single sack of kibble for more than a month! Where’s the justice here?!

Overhearing my muttering, manang called me and gave a serious lecture on dental care. She said that if I don’t take care of my teeth, I might end up spending more to have them fixed either that, or endure smiling with a missing front tooth for the rest of my life. Of course, I didn’t need that.

So off we were to do some serious brushing…

Can we please do without the nasty toothbrush and just let me lick the toothpaste off your finger?


Aw. What’s the point… The hoomans always win. :(

Gotta brush ‘em good so I can spend more on kibbles instead of donating those hard-earned cash to the nottie dentist.

If for anything, the best part in all these is the poultry flavored toothpaste… yum!

How about you buddies, have you brushed those pearly whites today?

Hi Aki,

Your manang does such a nice job in restraining you. hehehe
Flavored toothpaste? I haven't had any of those. Hmmm...I should ask mom to buy one.

My mom brushes my teeth without any toothpaste and she also gives me dentasticks to keep my teeth pearly white.

Mom says if I am going to show off my teefers all the time like I do, they have to be shinny!

Our Mom understands completely about those big dentist bills - horrendous!!! she keeps threatening to use the brush on our teeth , but we tell her it would be a lot easier if she just got us some nice meaty bones to gnaw on.

woos, the OP Pack

I have NEVER had my teeth brushed, but I like to chew on old toothbrushes. Does that count?

Hi, Aki!
You are so good letting her brush your teeth! I am little but it takes 2 (my mom and my grandma) to brush mine!
Kisses and hugs

Don't talk to me about brushing my teeth - aaugh! (I hope the humans' teeth and gums feel better soon.)

See ya!

You look so cute trying to get the toothbrush off your mouth, Aki! I used to get my teeth brushed by Mom too when I was on kibbles...the toothpaste was poultry-flavored too! Yumm! *grins*

But now I'm on a raw diet, the crunching and chewing on bones and meat help to clean my teeth much better! *grins* My teeth don't need brushing anymore! YAYYY! *grins*

Hi Aki and Poopie,
Oh our mom has a toothache too (like for the last 2 months) but she is too afraid to go to the dentist so she is pretending that the pain isn't there.. LOL!!

**Hershey here.. THANK YOU for the Barkday wishes!! I am 1, I am 1!!!

I know it feels so weird having our teeth brushed! I wonder how the human can do it to themselves twice a day!

I do not brush my teeth anymore cos I am on a raw diet and munching on the yummy bones help to clean my teeth, keeping them strong and healthy!
