Another day, another surgery

We found a cracked molar on Miss Deedee one night while brushing her teeth. She was behaving even more squirrelly than usual, and it turned out that the tooth was so damaged it had to be pulled (believe it or not, we did go to a vet dentist to see if a root canal would have been an option -- yes, we are that crazy).


Oh, you can't tell the difference? Well, look closer, because as it turns out, Deedee needed to have SIX TEETH pulled, total. Three of them are her top front teeth. So that crooked, sunken smile she's sporting is due to the drastic reduction in number of teeth.


  1. she doesn't look crooked! she does, however, as always, look adorable. so cute. smush that face.

  2. Aw, Poor Deedee!!! Our beagle had a broken tooth once- ugh, I couldn't even imagine how much pain she must have been in! We had that sucker yanked pronto! I wish they could tell us what was wrong, so they didn't have to suffer until we figured it out!

  3. Dude! 6 teeth...that is not a good day. You go in for one thing and come out with bare gums. On the bright side, at least you won't have to worry about brushing those six teeth anymore, right?
    I pawromise I can't tell a difference at all.
