We’ve Been Thinking

I have a confession to make.

Oh my. After all of y’all’s thoughts about having my tooth pulled removed (OUCH!) sooner rather than later, We’re thinking about biting the big one and just doing it. Why keep a cracked tooth? Won’t it just break off later? And cause more problems down the road? She’s got a cracked tooth, though, and it’s not going anywhere. Unless She’s just waiting for it to crack in two. I’ll have to ask Her about that…

And, listen, I have a confession to make. Since I did so well over the weekend, We decided to cancel my appointment this week to have it looked at. Guess that may have been premature, not to mention stupid. (If you’re just joining Us, you can read all about my latest escapade involving my teeth here.)

OK. I’ll keep you posted on that tooth thing. And thank you for caring. I really appreciate it. From the bottom of my frog dog feet.

Let’s move on.

Look what I got thru email yesterday? This cute picture:

This bunch ‘o Scotties lives in North Carolina. Uh…I’m not sure where. And We don’t know who this person is, but he sure can walk well can’t he? I couldn’t imagine being walked in a pack ‘o Scotties like that. Could you?

What You Learned Today:

  • I had a run in with a fence and lost a tooth. And cracked another one. But wait…maybe that crack came along a long time ago. While I was gnawing on a big ‘ole cow toe or something? Who knows? I’m not in pain though. So We’ll figure out what to do.
  • He has a friend who has a friend who has all those Scotties in the above picture. Thank you for sending it in! We love to share photos!
  • And thank you, my friends, for caring about me.
  • Ah me. What’s not to love about a Scottie?

About The Scottie Chronicles

Winston welcomes you to The Scottie Chronicles - a blog that began in 2009 as a voice for Stuart, a more than memorable black, brindle and white Scottish Terrier who captured hearts around the world. Stuart passed suddenly in December 2015 from cardiac hemangiosarcoma, a nasty cancer that took him far too early. If you love Scotties, please follow along. Arroooo!

    do it Stuart…and get it over with…a cracked tooth can start hurting at any time, and we don’t want anything to hurt when we happen to get a big juicy bone put in front of us…not to mention running around with our friends and play time nips could hurt too.

    love the ‘friends’ picture…they look like a pack that walks together very well. Fergie and I went to the practice football field yesterday with grand dudes. mum puts us clipped to both ends of a lead and we get to Investigate the area on a long line..we sometimes get tangled up like those guys too…

    roooos to you

    Your other option (to having it removed) is a root canal and a crown…trust me, you would rather have it removed. : )

    Love the photos. Me thinks this person has too many Scotties and should share one with me!!!!

    Amazing. When one of Them walks Kenzie and me together it doesn’t work like that. When I want to go north, Kenzie wants to go south and when I want to go west, Kenzie wants to go east. I guess that makes Kenzie a contrerrier (that’s a new portmanteau for you).

    I wonder about Kenzie.

  4. My vet told me that it’s best to have to removed, Stuart. Just sayin’.

    Love ya lots

  5. Stuart, we hate to be the bearer of bad news, but bad teeth usually don’t get well on their own, unless you are a shark and then they fall out and new ones come back in. We all know that a Scottie is not a shark, no matter how big they think their mouth is. Just sayin’ you might want to have the doggie dentist take a gander at it.

    Oh look at all those Scotties. Boy would I like to be in that pack ~ what fun. I never see anyone like me where I live, only on the puter in bloggieville.
    Though you would be eating a Taco of green beans today.

      SWTS, we know the feeling. Scots aren’t popular here (they like “real dogs”) and with both my peeps and both Kenzie and me looking out for Scots-we see a new one less than once a year. We have more luck finding new Westies-but not a lot.

  7. Daisy says:

    Yeah, wait and see with that tooth. Just stay away from fences in future.

    That’s a lot of scotties to walk. Wonder what happens when they see a cat! That’s what usually messes up our 3-dog system.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

    Oh, dear…I’m so sorry abouts your toothie. If it was ME, I’d say just leave it alone. No reason to go to the V.E.T. But if you asked my MOM, she’d prolly be all, “Oh, Stuart, you MUST go to the vet. What if that tooth breaks off even more and starts hurting or you get an infection or something?” (Between you and me, you shouldn’t listen to my mom…she worries about EVERYTHING. You should listen to me. I pretty much don’t worry about anything. Except about going to the V.E.T.)

    Whew! Lookit that gang o’ scotties. Do you think they have a gang name and matching jackets and stuff?

    Wiggles & Wags,

  9. Hoke says:

    Ok Stuart you should just go and have a look see! You don’t want an infection or some crazy non-sense like that. That picture of all those scotties is fun. I especially like the one in the back laying down and taking a break. As for you question about the Yankees..they are stinking up the place…and it’s making him mad.
