Saturday : Moo's Holey Moley

Sometimes we working breeds are called upon to work long hours. That's just what I did yesterday. I worked as a snoopervisor and watchdog.

I snoopervised dad a s he dug a trench, moved rocks, preparing to add a nice new deck in our part of the yard. (or "anti-mud platform", as mom calls it)
Mom & Dad brought Moo home from the vets office late afternoon. She didn't look so good, but don't tell her I said that!I kept watch over her while she recovered inside….
…and outside. It was a long night. She cried for a while last night, mom gave her ice cubes and that seemed to help. Mom told me not to worry, but woo can't help but worry 'bout your sisfur.
She's much better today. She even leaped way off the ground when Mom was holding her food bowl! Just to explain, she had a slab fracture, and prat of it broke off exposing the inside of the tooth, which is why it had to come out. (Not to worry, Tank, just a slab fracture isn't so bad). The largest molar has 3 roots, it can't be pulled. They make a flap in the gum, cut into pieces & removed it in sections. Then they stitch the gum back over the whole thing.
I think Moo will be feeling much better now that they fixed the holey in her moley. And I'm much better now that my sisfur is home!

A-roos to yous,

That is very fancy surgery. I bet her jaw is sore from having her mouth open so wide. Glad she is feeling better.

Slobbers,

We just don't understand why some people are allowed to play in the dirt we can't. Nutty!

Oh, Moo, we are sorry you had to have that dental surgery done, but are SO glad you are starting to feel better! I HATE dental work, so I feel for you, sweet Moo. And Jack is just so worried about you and being such a good brother keeping an eye on you. Husky hugs (gentle ones) to you and to Jack!
