You can't HANDLE the Tooth!

Hey, y'all:

Well, Molly O'Mally FINALLY went tuh the dentist last Friday. An' not a minute too soon I tell ya what! That ol' gal's breath could kill a MOOSE!

Now I'm warnin' ya: whut yer about tuh see ain't fer the faint o' heart. Take a deap breath an' look at this sucker:

Mom says that dark spot ya see on the crown is a cavity, an' that black gunk on the root is "calculus". Now I thought calculus wuz MATH but mom said THIS kind o' calculus is whut builds up yer teeth. Then she said the layman term fer it is "tartar". Whut the heck? I thought tartar wuz some kind o' sauce ya put on a fish sammich. (I just don't git this dental stuff.)

Anyhoo.....O'Mally did just fine. Here she is with her vet, Dr. Mills. This ol' boy has done wonders fer her peepee pipe workin', pulled that rotten tooth. Now if he could just git her tuh SHUT UP!

This here is O'Mally's favorite vet tech, Ronda. Fer some reason, she thinks O'Mally is the bee's knees. Mom calls 'em "Mo an' Ro".

Well, MY turn is comin' up next so I been practicin' liftin' my head an openin' wide.

Think they'll gimme a beef lollipop if I do good?

Yep. Mmhmm.

Mo doesn't look very happy in Ro's arms, but I laughed and laughed with the entire post. Phew, that must have hurt. You keep practicing, just make sure we get to see you every step of the way. Say "aaaah"

Wow! That tooth is just...yuck!

My puggies won't let me brush their teeth at all, so that picture makes me fear whatever might be in their mouths :)

Nice job, Molly!

Maybe woo will even get an extra pour of PBR!


Stacy Walker said...

WOW, that looks gross. I bet she feels better without that!

Stubby said...

Hi Hank! That tooth is so yucky! I can't believe that came out of O'Mally's mouth but then again, I bet I have some similar looking teeth. I'm refusing a dental because of my age so my teeth are staying put!

Oh my goodness, that nasty thing came from your mouth Omally?
Jeepers, it is huge! Now what - how can you eat?
Do you need a new tooth?
Don't forget to put the toofie under your pillow for when the "toof fairie" comes tonight.

I'd give you a whole bag of beef lollipops!!! I love your blog!!!!

Yes - please tell us what you get from the tooth fairy. Our himan sister (Agent Awesome) just jacked Mom for 5 smackeroos when her tooth fell out this week. Wonder how many biscuits that could buy?

Hope you feel better soon!

Love Gen & the Foo

oh, dear....this makes me nervous for what might be lurking inside Lola's garbage can smelling mouth...!

Sequoia & Petunia & Emma said...

Oh my....that's an ugly teef. Tuni has only a five teefs left we think her and Molly would be good old lady friends!!!

Paula said...

Glad Miss Molly's tooth is out. Bandit needs a dental so bad, don't know how they are going to proceed with that one. Good luck during your dental Hank, we hope you get the beefy lollipop!

Apollo said...

Oh Yucky! I'm glad it's out and hopefully her breath is a LOT better! My vet said I don't need a dental cause my chewies are doing a great job keeping my teeth clean. Mommy is happily buying them for me since she sees them as a prevention thingy, and I'm happily chewing and eating them - win win for us both. Good luck with your dental! Can you ask for a PBR instead?

Archie and Melissa said...

hi hank!
oh we are so glad molly did so well with her teeth cleaning.
it is amazing what these squished mouths can collect. it is a wonder we have any teeth at all!
i think you will get two beef lollipops!
we love to see you sing!

BRUTUS said...

Wowza! That is one SICK tooth!! And my momma is a dentist (I think you knew that??) so I've seen some scary teeth when she does her journal reading! She loved that photo, BTW probably the only one in the world that did!! I can tell ya, that one TAKES THE CAKE!! She says it musta had some crazy gum disease too for that calculus stuff to get soooo far down the root! Good news is that made it easy for Dr. Mills to get that sucker out! It certainly wasn't doing her any good that way!
So maybe you'll get to see Flat Brutus when he comes to IN? I know you puggies have mega-meeetups all the time, so ya never know who he'll run into while he's out there!!

OMG...MolBol...that tooth looks like a Shillelagh!!!
( daddy is the Lucky Charms Man so it's only natural that I would think this).

Ugh...I'm glad the doctor pulled that nasty thing out...that is GAH-ROSS!!!
