"you gotta be kidding me"

“you gotta be kidding me”

So this is the look I got from our dog CJ when I told her that she was going in to have dental surgery this morning.  She was very upset that she couldn’t have breakfast and that we were going to take her to the dentist to have a couple of teeth removed.  I had to explain that we were bad parents for not taking better care of her teeth but that she would feel better after the surgery.  She didn’t believe it…. but she went along with us anyway.  The young lady who checked her in was very nice and explained everything to CJ but she was still pretty nervous.  We felt terrible leaving her there and will be very anxious all day as we wait to hear how one of our children has come through the surgery.  Its going to be a long day.

    since i just got off the telephone with my vet to arrange for blood work, pre-dental for chloe..perhaps we can arrange a consultation after surgery so they can discuss the process.

      • Great news. We may be facing the same with our 13 year old dog. I hope not – take care of your girl !

      • Nora – CJ is 13 also. The first two days were hard – she did not feel well at all and did not eat or drink. The third day showed a great improvement in her actions and in her eating and drinking 🙂

    • Thank you Jackie! She appears to back to her old happy self! I’m glad she was only “down” for a day or two – I couldn’t take those sad eyes……
