I hope everyone had a great New Year! My holidays are wrapping up and I go back to work tomorrow.
Bleh, bleh, blaaaaah!
No seriously, it’s not that bad. Sure, it will feel strange but I miss my clients and I’m looking forward to seeing them tomorrow.
My New Year was pretty uneventful. We planned on going out but I came down with a bit of a cold so we had to cancel. Instead we had a nice evening at home in front of the fireplace while sipping some wine.
One bad thing happened though…Dexter broke a tooth. My Lady noticed it when scratching his belly and told me that he had a black spot on the tooth beside his canine.
He gets his teeth brushed and at first I thought it must be a piece of food or something, but when I checked it out it turns out she was right.
Yes…she was right. I admit it.
A trip to the vet revealed he had broken his tooth – likely while chewing his antler.
A root canal would be in the vicinity of two to three thousand dollars. To have it removed is a thousand, but February is National dog dental month or something so my vet says he can get me 50% off.
Dexter is scheduled for tooth extraction in mid-February.
Not that great in that department. Since Dexter is allergic to most foods, I had no alternative but to get him a Nylabone to chew.
If you have a strong chewer of a dog, perhaps stay away from the antler. I wouldn’t want to see them break their tooth.
I just finished a video about whether arguing online is worth it. I hope you’ll give it a watch and let me know how your New Years went.
