My dog is snoring. Again.
She had a rough day today. She has the puppy version of social anxiery disorder. Large groups and loud noises. No thank you. People she doesn’t know? Run away run away!! Today she spent the entire day at the vet. Half of the day she was out cold. She went to get her teeth cleaned for the first time in a long time. Because she’s a dog, they had to knock her out. When they went to go clean the teeth, they found two loose and two cracked teeth. Since she’s a dog…they recommended extraction.
I went to pick her up and in her drug induced haze she made some really weird noises. I’m sure that in her little puppy brain she was doing her excited howl at me. To me it just sounded like low level moaning.
The vet tech asked if I wanted to keep her teeth. Ew. Just. Ew. She then proceeded to tell me about a woman who wore a necklace made of her dog’s puppy teeth. Barf.
I always feel terrible when I have to leave her at the vet. I know they take good care of her, but because I also know how she acts when she’s scared? I spent the majority of my day feeling badly because I know she was in the crate (cage) just shaking like a leaf.
Now she’s home and snoring and has four less teeth. She’s still so drugged up that she hasn’t even felt the pain yet.
As annoying as the snoring is, I think I’ll let her keep doing it. She’s earned it.
