Doggie Dental Care

Dental Hygiene is very important for your pups. We understand that keeping up with brushing your pups teeth isn’t always easy, especially if they don’t particularly enjoy the process. We are guilty of being a bit to lax with this ourselves even though Oshie loves it..well he loves the toothpaste that is.

So why is it so important to brush a dogs teeth? Here is a short list of the benefits.

  1. Regular brushing will help prevent tartar, plaque and calculus build-up.
  2. Brushing helps prevent gingivitis and gum disease.
  3. It is a great opportunity to check your pups mouth for any problems. (broken teeth and etc.)
  4. You get to spend more time bonding with your dog 🙂

Periodontal disease (gum disease in dogs) is commonly seen when a dogs reach three years of age. Left untreated this infection can result in heart, kidney and liver problems for your pup. Dogs can also be in a significant amount of pain due to dental problems like abscessed teeth and you would never know it because they don’t shows signs of pain like we do.

So remember to regularly brush your pups teeth to keep them happy, healthy and free from pain.  Also have your vet check your pups teeth during regular check-ups. (Usually included in a check-up)

If your pup doesn’t enjoy having their teeth brushed as much as Oshie (see video below), you might need to start of slowly. Use your finger at first instead of a brush. Allow them to get used to it and eventually work your way to a brush. Also try to make it fun and use a doggie toothpaste that they like. If all else fails, consult your pups Vet.

Just a quick Throw Back Thursday post. We had a blast during our trip to Asheville last April. The Biltmore was awesome and we all had a great time. There were so many opportunities to make great photos. If only the weather had been a bit more cooperative the day we were there.

Here is one of my favorites of Oshie from the trip to the Biltmore House. He was pretty popular with the other tourists!

The Face That Gets All The Girls

One of the great joys of owning a dog is seeing their personality as it develops. Their faces can be so expressive, especially their eyes. Oshie’s many different faces are a constant source of entertainment in our house. He makes strange faces when he hears noises from another room or when his ears are getting rubbed. He even makes faces when you say certain words or phrases to him like “do you want” ha-ha. I do my best to try and capture these faces so we can look back on them later an laugh.

Here is one of the faces he does often and it always makes us laugh. I think it is his inquisitive used when he is trying to figure something out like “why is dad sticking his camera in my face again”. Don’t you think this is a face that would drive all the girls crazy?

Oshie on MSN – Dog Celebrity

The video I took of Oshie greeting Nancy when she returned from Norway is on MSN.com (I guess it has been there for a little while but we forgot to mention it)

The video on our YouTube channel has 700,000 views. I think it is safe to say that Oshie has gone semi-viral. He better not let this go to his head and start acting like some pompous celebrity. Besides, Nancy and I already treat him like royalty. How much more can he really expect?
