For some people it doesn’t last long enough and for others it lasts too long. I do like puppy breath, but I don’t love it in that I didn’t notice it was gone until one day there was just…nothing. Probably because he is still so young and because he is a chewer, he has nice white teeth and his breath smells like air.
|Clean teeth and a happy smile.
I’ve read that rope toys kind of act like a floss and help keep plaque off of the teeth and if that is true, Ray should have some nice white chompers for life considering his obsession with his rope toys and any game of tug he can engage in. But the other day, I realized I stick my fingers in his mouth all the time. Ray likes to “hide” things in his mouth. One of his favorite things to play with is an empty plastic milk jugs and the moment he gets the lid off, I say “Uh oh” and he usually knows to drop it right away. Recenty he has begun to hold it in his mouth, back past his molars and between his teeth and cheek. If I say, “Ray, what’s in your mouth?” He turns his head away very nonchalantly as if to say, “Nothing, I don’t know what you’re talking about, Mom.” Usually I can get it by trading, but a few times I have just dug it out of the depths of his “massive Pit Bull jaws.” I think he kind of likes that game.
Anyhow, I realized the other morning that all of this exploration in the depths of Rays mouth had probably set him up for some good hygene habits, so we dug this out to and started to use it.
We’re not up to the whole mouth yet, but are getting a pretty good portion of it because, after all a nice helping of poultry flavored tooth paste? YUM!
Do you brush your pooches teeth?
