One of my absolute favorite pastimes is having my teeth brushed. I would eat the entire tube of doggy toothpaste in one sitting, if I could get my paws on it. My human buys the peanut-flavored one. She usually brushes my teeth twice a week, if she can remember (not often enough, I say!).
My human's sister is a dental hygenist, and she actually scales her dog's teeth! I don't know how I'd do with a sharp implement scratching the surface of my teeth, but Lucy doesn't mind it one bit.
Why on earth would anyone bother with brushing our teeth, you ask? I have one word for you: tartar. That nasty stuff builds up (just like on you humans!) and can cause tooth decay. Not to mention smelly breath. Ah, the dreaded doggy breath...not comin' from me, I can assure you!
Speaking of teeth, my baby ones should start falling out any day now. My human is keeping her eyes peeled for them but so far, nothing. Is there such a thing as a Doggy Tooth Fairy? I would love to wake up and find some treats tucked under my crate bed!
