Give Me Strength

IMG_3039

The day I’ve been waiting for dreading for the past month has finally arrived.

The day BEFORE Sid’s dental.

Now, the actual day of the dental is stressful due to the fact that, as many of you know, they have to knock my poor little guy out with anesthesia, and the presentation of the vet bill is no laughing matter as it often tallies up to an exorbitant figure on par with most apartment rent payments, but what has really been haunting me in my dreams for the past month is this tiny flat face when I have to explain to those adorable little brown eyes that breakfast is the ONLY FOOD YOU’RE GOING TO GET FOR 24-HOURS. No snacks, no treats, no lunch-time Wigzi, no dinner tonight, no breakfast tomorrow. Absolutely NO BABY CARROTS.

So I ask for all of your help to give me the strength to deny this poor little guy what he oh so desires.

How I wish there were a way to explain to him that after his dental life will be grand again. Treats will resume (only soft ones at first) and CANS UPON CANS OF DELICIOUS SMELLY WET DOG FOOD will be his for the taking.

    Awwww. I wish you all the strength in the world but those are some very sad brown orbs Sid has going on.

    We’re trying to wean our pug off the treats we give her when she does her business. We adopted her as an adult from suburbia and took her to the big city. Our little lady was not accustomed to going to the bathroom anywhere but her backyard so we had to bribe her to avoid accidents or medical problems. We’ve tried to switch to one treat at the end of the walk but she looks up and looks so very sad and confused that I feel like the biggest meanie.

    A whole 24 hours?!? That’s torture for both of you. Our vet only stipulates no food after 9 the night before. We will be thinking about you during the procedure tomorrow and sending up prayers.
    Love,
    Christy

    I am sending a VAT of JUJU to Sid for his dental and hopes that his foodless-ness is short-lived.
    Love Noodles
