Sammy spent the day with Dr. Hillary today. His tear ducts needed flushing and while he was under (the first time he's had any procedure done since I got him nearly 8 years ago) I had her check his teeth too. His teeth are actually in good shape for a nearly 12 year old but there was some routine maintenance that needed to be done. He had a couple of fractured incisors and one fractured pre-molar - all on the right side. So I guess we know which side he chews on. All 3 teeth were pulled. Oh and she did his toe nails too - Doberman short :)
So tonight my man isn't feeling too good. He's had pain meds and ice cream (the doctor said soft food) and lots of water. I'll soak his kibble into mush before I feed him. There's a crate set up in the living room so he can hang with the family but do it in a man cave, out of the way. I'm going to go lie on the floor with him for a bit too.
Poor old man. Getting old sucks.
