Well this is the way Mom brushed our teeth for the first time the other day. After reading about some other dogs brushing their teeth and learning about the benefits, she thought it would be a good idea that we try too. Mom's really good about keeping us healthy. We have the other typical things that keep our teeth healthy. Like healthy food, Nylabones and greenies. But we never tried the traditional human route with a toothbrush and toothpaste. So Mom went out and bought Swish and I our very own toothbrushes. Mine is blue. Swish's is red. She also bought us very special, very tasty dog toothpaste. It taste like chicken! We asked if they had any pizza flavored toothpaste. She said no. Bol.
Here's how it went.
Don't worry, she's not squeezing my head.
Mom: Good job Oak! You did better than I thought!
Oak: Thanks Mom. Can I have a treat?
Mom: Uh no, I just brushed your teeth!
Oak: Aw man.
You're gonna put that, where?
Mom: Swish, open up.
Mom: C'mon Swish, just a little.
Mom: Swish. Sit still!
Swish: Mm. Um. Mmph.
Mom: V, help me hold him.
Mom: See Swish, it's not that bad. It taste good.
