Hi all!! Gabriel here!! I just wanted to tell my fellow Beagle Buds and
Honorary Beagle Buds that I gave mommy and daddy a big scare and a big Vet
bill!! I have to say I was a bit scared too. On Monday night, the area right
under my right eye just puffed right up and boy was I in a bunch of pain. Daddy
called the em.... emer-gin-cie vet, yeah that's what he said. The vet said to
get an appointment soon, sounds like a toothache. Well, silly vet, I coulda tole
him that!!! Duuuuh!!! Silly Hoomins!!
Anyway, by mornin the right side of my face was so swollen up I could hardly
see. I was a bit shakey and scared too! Well we went right into the vet that
afternoon and the vet said I had somethin called an "ab-cess". Mean old ugly
thing. So... I had to have surgery and the vet took out 2 teeth , two mind
you!!! I also got tested for my heart murmer and the vet said that my heart
looks pretty good! I guess that is a good thing!! The vet said I done good with
this stuff called anes... anes-thesia. These silly hoomins, use such silly
Anyway, mommy and daddy came to get me after I woke up and I was feelin pretty
chipper. The nice girl at the vet gave me a bonie and I ate it right up. Nice
Doctor O said somethin like "only a Beagle would eat a biscuit after tooth
surgery". I don't know what that means... but that biscuit tasted mighty good!
Yup, mighty good!
Mommy and Daddy says that explains why I had not liked some of my harder bonies
lately. They thought I was just getting a bit picky. Well, I tell ya, now BRING
ON THE BONIES. To celebrate, mommy gave me a greenie for LARGE dogs... oh boy, a
monster greenie!!! Arrrrroooooooooo!!!
I am a lot perkier too now that those bad old teeth are gone. While mom was
putting away groceries tonight I jumped up and stole a bag of turkey cold cuts
from the counter. Too bad mom took them back before I got to enjoy them. Oh
well, I will try again! Yesterday, I knocked over a plate of bonie biscuit and
ate a few afore mommy could get them all... so I have had some success!
Well, glad that my toothache is gone!! Boy, ain't life grand bein a Beagle!
Aroooooos to all my Buds!! Love, Gabe
