Knick-knack patty whack give a dog a... TOOTHBRUSH? What the #*$@?!
Don't get me wrong, we love our dog. We feed her twice a day, slip her a treat whenever she does something good and take her for lots and lots of exhausting uphill walks; but come on, man... Brush her teeth? Are you KIDDING me?
When the veterinarian told us that we needed to start brushing the dog's teeth–I laughed. Not because I thought it was funny, but because she never smiled. Then it dawned on me... Maybe she never smiles because we don't brush her teeth?
I cannot remember anyone ever ever going to this extreme with their pets back in my day. In fact, I know damn well they didn't–and our four legged friends turned out just fine. It's bad enough we have to maintain our own personal hygiene, but the fact that we now have to worry about theirsjust pisses me off–especially when we see our cheerful little pup dipping her head into the cat's litter box for an afternoon snack. Whatever happened to the simple option of just giving the poor dog a bone?
Maybe one day, they'll come up with an easier way for us to ensure a healthy smile for our beloved pets... Until then, it looks like I may have to bite the bullet and invest in some ACT for dogs. Wait... What? You mean they don't mouthwash for dogs? Oh, don't kid yourself... Of COURSE they do and you can get it right here on Amazon! After all... We wouldn't want PETA finding out that Fluffy hasn't been brushing regularly! *ting* <Insert eye roll here!>
