We've been bad parents.
OK, brace yourself... We haven't been brushing Bryson's teeth... for like... a whole year. *wince*
On top of that, we've been giving him yummy treats like this homemade doggie icecream from time to time:
And as a result, we had to make a trip to the vet for some doggie teeth cleaning this week.
He's mortified of the vet's office, that's why he's being carried. You can see his little booties shaking below, poor baby... and we had to leave him there the whole day since he needs to be put under, which, needless to say, make us feel terribly guilty.
And it costed us. BIG time. Let's say we could have bought the squirrel, giraffe AND the hippo that I've been drooling over (with change). *sigh*
We've really tried when we first got him. We tried the finger brush, we've tried a regular toothbrush with beef-flavored toothpaste. We've even tried this gadget. He hates them all, and would put up such a fight that you'd think we're torturing him.
We need advice!
