Franklin Recovering from Dental Surgery

Our (almost) 8 year old Dachshund Franklin is recovering from dental surgery that he had yesterday. I (Rob) noticed that he wasn't allowing me to brush his teeth on one side and he ate on the other side, so I checked his teeth (he's good about letting me do that). Turned out his tooth was cracked. When we took him to the vet she looked more closely and saw it was split in half and had to be removed. SO, Thursday he went in for surgery.  - He did okay, but his little heart slowed while under anesthesia, so we have to be mindful of that next time. He was really groggy when he came home, but still managed to run out in the backyard to check for squirrels when he came home, ate some soft food and zonked out.  Here are some pictures from his adventure from start to finish.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
