This one has been up for a little while too! We absolutely loved having Reagan stay with us! We miss the little guy!
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.
- Regular brushing will help prevent tartar, plaque and calculus build-up.
- Brushing helps prevent gingivitis and gum disease.
- It is a great opportunity to check your pups mouth for any problems. (broken teeth and etc.)
- 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.
Hey everyone! We had a fun filled weekend. Oshie went to week two of puppy boot camp and did so well that we decided a trip to the beach was in order (he would have gone anyway ha ha). We hope you all had a great weekend too! Enjoy the VLOG!
Hello everyone! Here is a short video of how Oshie reacts when I get home versus how he reacts when Nancy gets home. It has been on YouTube for a few weeks now but I forgot to share it on here. Enjoy!
The past couple of weeks here in North Carolina have been pretty warm. Temperatures have regularly been in the 60’s and 70’s with a few cold days mixed in. The weather has been so nice that the trees have decided it was time to start blooming (featured image is the neighbors peach tree in full bloom). We were beginning to think we weren’t going to see any snow for the second year in a row. So you can imagine how shocked we were to wake up to snow falling on Sunday morning!
When Oshie finally managed to get us up, (we thought he let us sleep in for once but forgot about the time change) we opened the blinds to find big white flakes falling from the sky. Oshie had never really seen snow before Sunday. The first year we had him we woke up one morning to the yard covered in frozen rain/ice and that was the extent of his experience with wintry weather. I quickly grabbed the camera and let Oshie loose to experience his first snow.
He had an absolute blast! He was a little confused when it started to stick to his tennis balls (it was a very wet snow) but overall I think he really enjoyed it. Proof is in the pictures below!
Unfortunately the snow only lasted for an hour or two and by mid morning there was no evidence that the snow had even come. It would have been nice if it had stuck around for another day or two, although to be honest I am happy it wasn’t a major storm. The good folks of North Carolina have no idea how to handle snow. At least Oshie has finally experienced the white stuff, even if it was just for a short time.
Here is short video of Oshie enjoying the snow!
Here is the follow up video to the last blog post about Oshie’s trip to work with Nancy. Oshie loves hanging out with the Marines and they love having him. His visit might not be completely within the rules (ha-ha) but it is definitely good for morale. I know I would have loved to have a dog hang out at my shop back when I was in.
I remember living in the barracks you couldn’t keep pets of any kind and you could go long periods of time without interacting with a 4 legged friend. For animal lovers and Marines that grew up with pets that can really suck. You also don’t realize how long it has been since you last played with a dog until you finally get to again.
It is pretty cool that Nancy brings Oshie to work every so often. I know he loves it and I know the Marines appreciate it too, especially when Oshie helps them take out the trash ha-ha.
Every so often Oshie goes to work with Nancy and hangs out with the Marines. He loves going and they love having him. About two weeks ago she decided she would take him in on a Friday. I had gotten all of his things ready and when he saw them on the counter he knew he was going on a trip. Sometimes he is too smart. He knows when the harness/leash are out that he is probably going to be doing something fun. Below is the video of him in all his excited glory.
