A New Torture

Mom devised a new torture for me. She must sit around thinking up these things. It’s called,”We need to brush your teeth.” What’s the “we” in this? It’s Mom doing all the brushing. Why doesn’t she just go brush her own teeth? Again. Leave my teeth alone; they are perfectly fine just the way they are.

Agh! Let go of my beard!

  1. Do you know this has been added to my nightly routine now? Without my sister and cousin around, Mom has too much extra time on her hands to come up with ways to torture me. I hope you can escape nightly brushings.

  2. Hi Lexi – I LOVE having my teeth cleaned! My Mom got the old “clicker” out and if I let her touch my teeth with a finger she would “click” and I would get a treat. This progressed to touching with a brush thing (general toothbrush). Then she put pumpkin stuff on the brush and while I was licking it off she was moving it around. Now she puts some stuff on it that tastes like chicken. I get to lick all this good stuff and, apparently, she gets to clean my teeth! I also just LOVE to eat rutabaga which is also good for my teeth. WOOF! Ray.


    1. Hey Ray, good to hear from you. I guess to each his or her own. Mom has gotten on a jag before about brushing my teeth. My toothpaste is supposed to taste like liver, but I would so much rather have liver. Sometimes she uses a red rubber thing with tiny bristles that she slips over her finger. It’s just so invasive! (Although nothing like a glass stick up the other end!!) Rutabawhat? Is that like a greenie?

      1. Rutabaga is a root vegetable. It grows in a round shape about 6 inches diameter and Mom or Dad just slice off a piece for me. It love to sit and crunch away at it ….. and because of its size, it lasts for quite a few days so quite economical. It is also apparently very healthy! Woof! Ray.

      2. Thank you, Dharth! *blush*. I though Dharth was the name of the bad guy on Star Wars. Huh. I learned something new! So are you very spiritual? I am an Episcopalian dog because I go to the Episcopalian church 2 times a week with my Mom to work. Everyone is very nice to me there.
        I got my name from Lexington NC. If you ever read my book, you will find out I was named after a BBQ place there. My FULL name is Lexington BBQ. That’s why I have this phobia about being eaten.
        I had an awesome Sunday. I am going to blog about it soon, but wanted to touch base with you first, nice kittie. Wishing you much catnip.

    1. Thanks Henry. I eat a Greenie every night for my night-night treat, but I guess they aren’t working so well. And I just went through going to the vet’s for a dental in February, so I don’t know why my teeth aren’t still clean from that. The boy said I have bad breath. Grrrrrrrrrr.
