Dogs are the keeper of your heart. I truly believe this. If you have ever had a 4 legged friend, then you understand the roll they play in your family. Huey goes in for teeth cleaning and extraction next week. Not fun and exciting stuff, and very much a routine thing. But, he has a heart murmur and the combination of a funky heart and anaesthesia scares the daylight out of me. However not having it done will be the beginning of the end of his liver, so yes, teeth extraction was an easy choice to make. Duh! Needless to say, he’s getting extra treats, longer walks and may or may not be taking advantage of my soft spot towards his “wrong doings” these past few days.
