Pass me a' a piece o' cake!

Hey, y'all:

Take it from me.......ya only gotta floss the ones ya wanna keep.

Last Friday I went an' seen Dr. Mills fer whut I THOUGHT was gonna be a little gloss n' floss. Well, I am embarrassed tuh say that I had NINE teeth pulled! The ol' boy said I got somethin' called paireeohdontuhl duhsease. Now I'm not exactly sure whut that is but maybe it's 'cause I don't own a toothbrush. I dunno.

Anyhoo, I did enjoy meetin' the ol' boy - perty nice fella. No wonder O'Mally always yaps about how great he is. Here's me an' him before I got the bad news.

So a hour an' a half later, I'm nine teeth lighter an' at LEAST three sheets to the wind I tell ya what! Boy howdy I was hepped up on goofballs like nobuddy's business!

Hey, bud! Can't ya warm up that stethuhscope?!?! Whut's that ya say? My ticker's runnin' a little slow? Aw, hail, that's no big deal......shoot, I once drank so much PBR my dad had tuh hook the jumper cables up to me!

Uh........a shot??? Sure! I'll take a shot o' tequila.....oh, an' don't fergit the lime an' salt. Boy howdy this is MY kinda doctor's office!!!


Now THAT is dirty pool, mister!!! Dirty pool. (An' ya gotta git a GIRL tuh do yer dirty work!)

Miss Ronda.....I don't feel so good. Will ya snuggle me fer awhile?

Well, anyways.....I survived, an' not a minute too soon 'cause the next day was Apollo's twenty-first birthday!

I am proud as a peacock tuh say I bought him his first beer!

(Jami, honey.....kinda looks like you'd already been hittin' the sauce! Tee hee!)

Mom said we had tuh git a nice family pitcher buhfore ever'body (ME) started gittin' drunk.

Here's Sal clingin' to his grammaw. Come on, bud....loosen up! It's a party!

Check this out! Apollo was so buzzed he thought he'd pass out in my bass boat! HAHAHA! Whatta light weight!

The party really heated up when Maggie started wrastlin' Apollo an' screechin' "Who's yer mama?!?! Who's yer mama?!?!".

O'Mally needed a break from all the fun (you know old people), so she decided tuh take a stroll by the pond.

Meanwhile, me an' Harles J. kept the ladies entertained......

Oh, gawd.....O'Mally's yappin' at me tuh put in another pitcher o' HER.

'Fore we knew it, we closed the place an' it was time tuh go. My little pal Yoda was over it fer sure!

Now I want it to be known that I din't drink TOO much 'cause I know the dangers o' mixing goofballs an' alcohol.

Sos with that disclaimer (an' my goofballs) outta the way, I am headin' to the fridge fer a cold one.

Yep. Mmmhmmm.

OMG you poor thing. NINE teeth? How are you supposed to eat without them? And the shot, how cruel, truly.
On the positive side, it looks like that was a great party and we're glad you all had fun.

Dear Hanky
I am so sorry for your poor mouth. Did you save your teeth and put them under your pillow for thre toof fairy? I hope you find some nice soft stuff to eat- so you don't starve.
Are you feeling better?
We loved all the photos. We looked and looked and looked at all the pictures cause they make us smile. We love seeing the happy times with you and your adorable friends. They are so kissable.
I love Omallys dress- she is so cute in it.
And of course the pic of you snuggling with your gramma was precious.
I loved all the photos.
Thank you for sharing the good times and making smiles on our faces. Yes, you always do that for us.

Hi Hank! Sorry about you having to get your teeth pulled. I'm glad that you still got to make it to the party, though. You guys sure looked like you were having a good time! Please tell Miss O'Mally that she sure can wear that dress! Hope you're having a great week! Love, Arlo.

Smushie Ranch said...

Ah hells bells Hanklin. You really know how to tie one on. We heard you got so high as a kite at the docs office you started telling everyone you loved them, even doc Mills. Nothing to be embarrassed about, we're sure it happens to the best of us.

That is some wild party Apollo had. Glad to hear you recovered from your cosmetic dental surgery in time to enjoy the festivities.

Lot's of pug love!
Stella, Gunther and Betty

Dana Orsborn said...

Hi Hank!

I hope you are feeling better after all the
dental work! Apollo's birthday looked like
a lot of fun! Great photos!

I hope you are having a great week!


Brutus, Ellie, Pippa and Otto said...

Hey Hank, We can both relate to the teeth pulling - I had 11 teeth pulled a couple of months ago and Brutus had 6 pulled a couple of years ago. We own a toothbrush but won't let mom brush our teeth :)

Wasn't that party a blast - we were so tired. You got some great pics :)

Pugs & Kisses,

Yoda & Brutus

You sure are a pug of the world. We thought goofballs were me and Daisy since that's what we get called around here.

Mom would probably think you're a bad influence, but we think you knows lots of cool stuff.

Sorry about the teeth. I (Pearl) had the surgery a few years ago and had 3 teeth removed. And I've lost plenty on my own. Mommy just found a molar on the floor the other day. I said she can keep it if she wants (gosh, I sure don't need it! I'm getting along fine with the 10 or so teeth I have left). She could even make it into a necklace. Maybe you could make a nice bracelet for someone with the teeth your nice doctor pulled for you.

Pug love from,
Pearl & Daisy

Mia said...

Hanklin, it was so good to see you at the party!! I was awful sorry to hear about your teeth being pulled! But hey, it was a great ploy to get all those soft carob treats huh?!?!? You worked that angle real well!! I was impressed. Hope you and Molls are doing good!! Keep milking those missing teeth!!



Stacy Walker said...

Sorry about the teeth o pal, but at least you got some beer to make it all better!

Kelly said...

Poor Hanklin! 9 teeth is a LOT!

I had 6 teeth pulled once. They were all of my baby teeth that were not letting my adult teeth through!

The party looks AWESOME! That family photo of you and O'Mally with the parents... it belongs in a frame. BEAUTIFUL family!

Dear Molly,
I looove your dress, girlfriend!


Oakley and Swisher said...


Dude we are so sorry to hear about your teefs. We hope you are feeling ok and eating soft kibbles.

Lots of Licks-
Oak and Swish

Sequoia & Petunia & Emma said...

First Hank we are sorry to hear they stole 9 of your teefs. Tuni knows how you must feel, but does that mean more soft foods?

Also Molly looks so cutes in her pink dress!!!!!

Apollo said...

Hey Buddy!

I'm sorry to hear about your teeth. I'm glad you were still able to come to my birthday party. I'm sorry you weren't able to enjoy all the yummy food, but at least you got to have some pate (and cake?). What'd you think of the Barkundy and Pinot Leasho? I know, it's not PBR. Thanks for buying me my first beer! Now I can hit up those Puggy places with you...the ones you go to with all the PBR and the Barkie Beer and those fruity things that Maggie likes to slurp. Can't wait buddy! Some fun times we're gonna have this summer!

BRUTUS said...

Who needs teeth when your favorite thing in the whole world is a beverage?? Oh, uh - better not let my mom see that - she's a toof doctor!!

OMD what a great post. You went from potentially tragic to a blast. Nine teeth? So those were the ones you weren't flossing, huh? Did the dogfairy bring you nine treats or toys then?

Unknown said...

HankleyPug, this here is your good pal Howie. Wassup with takin all your teeth? sheesh how are you sposed to open your bottle of PBR without teeths to pry off the cap I asks??
I wanted to sympy-thize with you. I gots 6 teeths pulled in a very rude manner last week but I didn't get no alcohol and no cute girls in checkered skirts to hang around during my recovery. Wassup with that???
