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)

https://www.msn.com/en-gb/video/animals/excited-golden-retriever-welcomes-us-marine-owner-home/vi-AAklTQh

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?

4 week old Golden Retriever Puppy

The other day I was going through some of my pictures from last year that I hadn’t made an attempt at editing quite yet and I found this little gem. I took this short video with my Canon 7D Mark II during our trip to Asheville back in April of 2016 and I guess sort of forgot about it. The bed and breakfast we stayed at (http://www.ashevillegreencottage.com/) had a litter of Golden Retriever puppies that were around 4 or 5 weeks old. We were fortunate enough to spend a little bit of time socializing them and I snapped a few pictures that I have shared here in past blog posts.

In this video Nancy had picked up one of the puppies and was cradling it like a baby. It soon fell asleep (I believe they had just finished feeding) and began to bark,whimper and cry. It was too cute/funny not to record. I wonder what it was dreaming about? Enjoy!

Oshie loves doughnuts!

Being the spoiled dog that he is, Oshie has developed a taste for the finer things in life like fresh (well maybe not really fresh) doughnuts. On the weekends we usually take a morning drive with a mandatory stop for coffee to fuel the rest of the day. Of course Oshie tags along on the rides because he loves being in the car with the windows down where he can catch all the scents! This means that he usually gets a treat in the form of whipped cream or the occasional plain doughnut. Don’t worry we know they aren’t good for him and he doesn’t get them everyday, but a treat every once in a while isn’t going to hurt right? And it is impossible to say no to that face!

Anyway here is a short video of Oshie, who had already eaten his treat, practically begging for the doughnut that I had saved for myself. You also get to see his newest trick at the end! He has learned speak. Probably the hardest trick to teach so far as he is not much of a barker. Enjoy!
