Remember when we were at the cabin and harley was chewing on rocks... haha.. we thought she was so silly and cute. We warned her several times to be careful. We would take away rock after rock. We laugh and laughed then became responsible parents again and took away the dangerous objects.
It was so funny
well who's laughing now?
this girl broke her freakin tooth chewing on these rocks
breaking it down to the root.
She is at the doggie doctor.
They are telling me something like a veterinary dentist needs to do a root canal or we need to pull it.
a veterinary dentist! who the heck chooses that as their major?
The numbers that were flying around were something like $100 just for the pain meds... another $90 for blood work... All day at the doggie hospital... surgery... $1800 for the root canal or $800 to pull the tooth. She keeps throwing out other dollar amounts but I cant recall them all.
Im trying to add them up in my head but im no good at math.
I think about just pulling the tooth.
Half the cost.
But then I think about the giant hole in her mouth. Its a caynine after all. She will have a lopsided mouth. What if other dogs laugh at her. I think about how she will get her lip caught in the empty space and how funny she will look.
Then I think about the root canal. Which would have to wait until August since the only Veterinary Dentist around lives in Colorado and we would have to wait until his next stop to Utah. I think about all the follow up dental apt. she would have and how she would have to be extra extra careful with that tooth.
Then I think about the ache in my mouth. The tooth that really needs a root canal but I have been putting it off until it hurts bad enough because I hate forking over $1000+ for something like that. I would rather pay some bills or even go shopping.
Alas, the dog will win. She will get my root canal money and she will get her tooth fixed.
However we may fix it. Pulling or Rooting. She will have things back to normal soon.
Oh little girl. You better save me from a fire one day to make all your expenses worth it.
