Today's Pookapookapooka is dedicated to Cooper... he is the baaaaaaaby of the family... and today he is getting a procedure done to get the tartar off of his teeth... I have had Australian Terriers for the last 17 years... Cooper is my third one... (technically fourth, but one got hit by a car tragically out of my care when she was one...) and this dog has seriously got a hold of my heart... he is craaaaazy beyond crazy... whenever a fire truck goes by he howls like this..
As my three readers of this blog know, I had an Australian Terrier and she died of heart failure and I know it was because her teeth were so bad...I think the infection from her teeth traveled to her heart... she was 12 so it wasn't like she didnt' live a good life, but it could have been longer.. so now I am on top of these teeth... Brady had 4 teeth removed last summer because they were rotten and now Cooper is having this cleaning done to try to prevent that.. I told y'all about that documentary I watched, "One Nation Under Dog".. one of the quotes from it was the only thing wrong with having a dog is knowing his life will end before yours"... soooooooo true!!!
