Gator and his dental treat

I took this photo right before he went to day care for boarding.  He was soooo happy – made it even harder to take him.


The star in front of him is a dental treat.  It is supposed to keep his teeth clean – no idea if that works – and breath fresh – definite imptovement.  (But then again, your breath would also be vile if you were catching critters.)  Gator just loves these.  He will play wth it like a toy and carry it around the house for an hour or so before eating it.


Dog chews designed to clean teeth (?) and freshen breath (!)

Otis, an 8 year old 106 lb. lab/Dane mix, became a Tripawd on February 9, 2016 after his right front leg broke due to osteosarcoma. We did 4 rounds of carboplatin, but lung mets were discovered on Agust 25, and he passed on September 4. Otis was half of a bonded pair, and his adopted sister Tess, passed suddenly of hemangiosarcoma on October 9. The day before Tess passed, a local lab rescue group had identfied Gator, a 120 pound 6 year old yellow in need of a home, as a potential companion for her. His picture was on my phone, and my house needed a dog. . .
