Phantom on Friday

Woo Hoo, here I am back in the car and we are headed home.

Here is where I was Wednesday night and all day Thursday.

Most of you were right - it IS the VET!!!

Look what they did to my poor leg! And they didn't feed me and I couldn't have any water. And for what??? I had my teeth cleaned!!!! I thought they were just fine the way they were. Hey, don't get so close if you don't like the smell of my breath. But I needed to have an x-ray done to see if one of my large molars that was fractured had to be extracted. Now that's a lot of big words for a pup like me. In the end it turned out that I got to keep my molar because the root system looks just fine. BUT I had to part with one tiny tooth. They sent it home with me - see below.

That's Mom's thumb and MY tooth. Well, if you bigify it, you can see that it is mostly all root and very little tooth. The tech said she had to dig quite a bit to get it out. Hey, what's this about digging in my mouth? I thought digging was a bad thing!!!

Mom wanted to get a picture of my sparkly pearls but I didn't want to open my mouth. I really didn't even want to look at her. After all, SHE is the one who brought me there.

No, I won't look.

Psst, Thunder, can you help me out here and get rid of the flashy beast and its operator?

I guess I could try but it would be a lot faster if you just turned and looked at her.

All right, this is the best you can get. Now please go away, Mom.

Now, before I close, one of my good little biped friends told me something about putting the tooth under my pillow and seeing if the Tooth Fairy would leave me some money. Do you think I should believe her? What's a Tooth Fairy?

Hmmmmm, money, ice cream truck, maybe I should listen to this little girl.

Woos, Phantom

You should definitely put the tooth under your pillow for some ice cream money!! I bet your teeth look wonderful =)

Checkers said...

You should listen to that little bi-ped. They are pretty smart - especially when it comes to getting something put the tooth under the pillow

Don't get Dave started on the Tooth Fairy... although I don't think that adorable little bipedlet would lead you astray. She's far too cute for that.
And yes, I DO love those photos. You and TD did great work!
Tail wags,

We love that last photo! Sorry you had to go to that VET and they dug around in your mouth, but it was for the best!!!

Maybe if you put it under your pillow you will get some treats instead of that hard money stuff!!
We love your smile..

Nice reverse poodle leg!

Glad your teeth are pearly white. I would certainly put the one under your pillow and see what u get.

Thank Dog it's over! Sometimes I wonder how humans can stand it - they're constantly cleaning their teeth! Let me know if that Tooth Fairy shows up for pup teeth, I have one that needs to come out next time I get mine cleaned. i'll make sure they send it home with me too.
Hope woo are feeling better, woo look a little freaked out.

a-roos to yous,
Jack a-roo

Aw, Phantom, those last two pictures are adorable. I'm glad you got that important stuff done at the vet and you're back home. I definitely think you should look into the Tooth Fairy thing!

See ya!

Kathryn and Ari said...

arrrgghhh. Not the V-E-T!!! We hope you at least get a visit from the tooth fairy out of the deal!

Tracey and Huffle said...

Good work on the photos puppers! I'm glad your tooth appointment went well Phantom. Try the tooth fairy thing, you just never know.

Poor Phantom,
Definitely need some ice cream to make up for the day.

Did you put your tooth under your pillow??? I'm sure the Tooth Fairy would bring you something.

Hi, Phantom!
I knew it!
Glad it is over and you are back at home!
Here, a mouse is the one who leaves us money under the pillow!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Pooh phantom! I hope you got something good in exchange for your tooth!

Maggie and Mitch said...

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

It doesn't seem like it beed too traumatic. That tooth fairy thing not work you knows, I tried it when I beed a pup. You should get something for being so good though.

Sally said...

Well, I would put it under my pillow. Maybe you will be surprised the next morning. Smile

Hi Phantom,

Did you have body parts stolen, too! I think this is some type of alien conspiracy against all of the dogs in this world. Why does the vet want to take our parts? I do hope that you are feeling OK.

Good Luck! I hope you get some monies!'

Poor Phantom - hope you are felling better - i had to have a bunch of teeth pulled 2 weeks ago - i had a cyst on my jaw and ended up with stitches and everything. So i know how you feel


Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Oh yes! You need some spending money for the ice cream truck!


Amber and Nala said...

Ah poor Phantom! :( Mom brushes my teeth sometimes and it is awful but it would be even worse I think to have to go to the vet all night. Hope you feel better.


Mochi and Mommy said...

Uh-oh I better not let mom see this post or she's gonna remember that I need to get my teeth cleaned in a few months too! I'm glad you're ok and great job avoiding the camera!

I think you should put it under the pillow! :)

Oh I bet your mouth feels all better now. You were very brave :)

In August Sonja (sheltie) needs to go in for a dental again. It has been a year and it looks like she has never had her teeth cleaned lol.

Hello there Phantom!

Glad to note that you're out of the V-E-T and that they got to the root of the problem (no puns intended).

You're looking mighty handsome still even if you're one tooth less!
