Jingles For Benny


Recommended Posts

We saw the vet this morning, and bed ause had didn't get breakfast, Benny us in for his dental today. The vet is optimistic that he won't have to extract any canines but won't really know till he's had a good look under anaesthetic. Apparently Benny's are not the worst teeth he's seen in an old dog. I told him I wasn't sure that was the best measure of dental health and he laughed but hopefully we might get away with a very good clean, to get him 'back to a starting point' then take it from there.

 

But jingles and good thoughts are requested. My baby is apart from me for the first time since we got him from the pound and I know a whole lot of bad memories were already starting when the nurse led him away. He looked so scared! Given that history he shoukd be coming home this afternoon, but that seems like a long way away.

He's home! A little wobbly and confused, and he's gone straight to bed in the darkened room. Two incisors out, the rest cleaned, antibiotics for a week, and back to the vet for a final check-up next week, but my little man did so very very well.

 

He charged out of the waiting area, with the nurse skating behind into the crowd of racing greys and their owners, snuggled up to me and then pranced out. Now we're home, he's much more subdued and a little disoriented, but he knows he's home. I'll try giving him something to eat in a little while (steamed rice and some chicken, bland food for an unsettled tummy) and then he can go to bed. Hopefully tomorrow he'll be feeling much better. If not, he'll be coming to work with me.

Yeah. I was laughing too. All anyone could hear was the nurse saying 'Oh my! I didn't expect you to be so strong! Ooh! You're too old to be .... Look out!' As she appeared.

 

He ate his dinner and had a good night. Just now he's still in bed, so I'll get up soon and see how he is. My lovely boy. Hopefully now he knows that he's never going to be left again.
