Call Me Snaggletooth?

snaggletoothMy peeps can be so mean. I guess they think it’s harmless to call me “cute” names, and, let’s not forget how mad She gets when folks call me a skunk because of the white spot on my back – like a junkyard dog She gets – but, somehow, I don’t think “snaggletooth” is cute. Or funny.

Here I am stretching after a good long sit in the backyard and She calls me “snaggletooth.”

snaggle2Now, I can explain this.

Somewhere in this 3-year-old blog of my nearly daily adventures is the story of some fence aggression I experienced a while back. And, uh, I broke one of my two front teeth. Then, it fell out. (They were such pretty teeth, too. My dogtor loved them so much, she’d move my flappin’ jowls aside every time I’d go see her just to take a gander at my pearly whites. All straight and pretty. Those were the good ‘ole days.)

To make matters worse, seems the black pigment in my lips is gettin’ kind a’ spotty. Hence, I must look like a “snaggletooth.”

Well, peeps, you need to keep in mind a SABER-TOOTHED TIGER the next time you call me that. Or I might just have to remind you….

What You Learned Today:

  • I’m 7 years old.
  • No spring chicken, but not an old man either. (I assure you of that.)
  • Over the years, things happen.
  • So I broke a tooth a couple of years ago.
  • It fell out.
  • Now my charming smile ain’t what it used to be.
  • Hey, do your peeps call you names?

    Man oh man, we are called so many names, too many to mention! But for some reason, they all fit us. We now even come on command when we hear the “other” names being used!

    Where’s the bingo call out? I still have a lot of white space.
    You don’t want to know my nickname. Since Kenzie’s poo was smaller than mine, I was “Big S**t” and he was “Little S**t”. Gees, peeps, get some class

  8. It could be worse – they could call you “their sweet little snagglepuss”

    Silly girl (when I’m doing laps around the apartment, or rolling on my back and arrooing)

    AROoOo L&M

  11. Boxers get the snaggletooth look a lot. I think it’s TOUGH! Don’t worry about it.

  12. Daisy says:

    I, Daisy, have crooked teeth. So I’m not going to say anything. Typical of the human to get you mid-stretch!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  13. Lee says:

    Stuart can you whistle through that hole?? I am her first scot that does not have all those names. I think perhaps it is because my dsyplasia of both front legs she feels sorry for me and never gave me those funny names.
    Thanks for being a friend

    Stuart, please try to give the peeps a little slack. It’s because they love you so much and you have enhanced their life so much. It’s always said with love, I know.

    Before my Gus went over the Rainbow Bridge, I used to call him Guster, Fuster, Muster, Buster, calling one name out right after the other and the look on his face was priceless. I referred to him as ‘my best boy’ but he was a no-nonsense type of Scottie and just wanted to hear his name, Gus. What I would give to be able to say those things to him again. We peeps are funny creatures, and Scotties just make our lives complete.

    Is there a name you secretly have for your peeps that they don’t know about?

    • Well, you’ve helped me put it in perspective. Yes. You have. And I thank you for that. That’s a nice gravatar of the Guster!

      Now, what do I call the peeps? Well, mainly, meanies, but that’s not very nice, is it? They’re kind. They really are.

      Thanks for dropping by with your thoughts.

  15. Hoke says:

    Well Stuart if you ask me, I think you look just fine!!! You have character and spunk and a personality that anydog would love to have!!! You are just perfect. as for names, they call me, “stink butt”, demon dog, bully boy, hokey pokey artichokey, old man, crazy….I could go on and on!!!

  16. noodledog says:

    Everyone thinks Noodledog is my name! I have been called Stinkerella, stink butt, skid, crazy dog, black olive nose, drool bucket, scottie, my real name, and about 10 other things. I will sort of listen if they call my name, or noodle or scottie


  17. robynwp says:

    Mom just loves your smile. Mom loves my (Wally) smile too – I’ve got an overbite and she just loves it when I fall asleep on my back and she can see it.

    Don’t stress Stu – we think you are one handsome Scottie dude!

    Wally & Sammy

  18. Gizmo says:

    Heck yes…Momz calls me all sorts of silly things…but I love her so I let it go…Dawgs are often the bigger person in these matters
