Nigel Goes to the Dentist
Do I really have to stay here?
How does a 75 lb dog become invisible? Nigel tried his best this morning to blend in with the floor at the Center for Dentistry& Oral Surgery. One of the doctors just called to say that, while Nigel doesn't need a set of dentures, he is going to lose three rotten teeth and another will be filed, smoothed, and bonded. Nigel will still have a great smile, the teeth extractions are in the back; and after the polishing and fluoride treatment, he'll have a much healthier smile and probably sweeter breath. Dental health, like with people, is important for animals. Nigel didn't complain about his broken teeth, but he is not a complaining kind of dog. When Max had several teeth pulled he insisted on ice cream and mashed potatoes for every meal. For now, Nigel will feast on water-downed dog food. Poor pooch!
