“Feelin’ Groovy!”

Thank you dear furiends for your care and concern when I was at the Vet for my dental a few days ago!  It warms my Sheltie heart!

Do you believe that Mom had the NERVE to take a photo of me afterwards when I was still  in the “Land of Psychedelic Shelties?” She did the SAME thing last year! I think she started some sort of sick new tradition at my expense!  Well, I wouldn’t let her put up the original photo, my nose was all swollen and my eyes didn’t have their normal Sheltie sparkle. I made Mom touch up the photo in Dreamscope to better depict how I TRULY was feeling! Here you go!


Now this isn’t so bad!

The Vet and Vet Tech said I was a super good boy and took everything in stride! They said I am “sweet!!” Well, OF COURSE I am!! “Dr.Smiley”, my usual Vet, didn’t do the dental because he doesn’t clean teeth, one of his equally “smiley” associates did, and she was WONDERFUL!! They all took such good care of me!  I am completely back to my barking self! Thank you all for your kind words to Mom while she was a nervous wreck! You are all “sweet” too!!

Barks and licks and love,




  1. Whoot! You sure are a pup of many colors!! You make me blink, BOL!! Glad you are back to your barkingist self.

    I’m glad you came out of the teeth cleaning just fine. I’ve never had mine cleaned and my vet says my teeth are like that of a 4 yr old dog and in great shape. I hope I never have to have it done. My kitties get it done, but they don’t brush their teeth.

      I have had Vets tell me it is genetic. Our cat, Cody, is 9 and has never had his teeth cleaned…….(or brushed), his teeth, so far, are fine. My first cat, had to have his teeth cleaned every year from age 3 on. Our Vet told us that Shetland Sheepdogs (and some other dogs), have mouths that are particularly narrow which makes them more prone to teeth problems if not monitored. Dogs with wider faces/mouths, like bulldogs etc, don’t have this problem. Dakota’s teeth are fine, (thank goodness), but we are trying to be proactive to hopefully avoid any problems.

  4. I’m glad all went well Dakota. Love your picture!

  5. I know your mom was beside herself while you were gone. I’m also sure she was very thrilled when you came home. I know about that lonely house thing.

    I’m so glad your vet visit and teeth cleaning went so well.

    Have a woof woof day Dakota. My best to your wonderful mom. ♥♥♥
