Kassa and Ricky had a good week. They had some good greyplay today. The recent heat has been a bit hard on the guys and the dogs do more lounging than running. So do their peeps. While Ricky was between soaks last week one of my friends picked quite a bit of tarter off of one of his teeth. Now I can always count on this particular friend to call it like she sees it. This time was no exception. Now I must admit I had gotten lax in regards to tooth care for the boys. Early in Kassa's adoption I gave him a big raw hide chew to work on every evening. When tarter built up on his canine teeth I got a dental scalar to pick it off. The last few times I was at the vet they said his teeth looked like he had just had a dental. After researching raw hide more, I decided to back off of it and use pig ears (made in the USA) instead. While tasty, the pig ears are a quick snack. The dogs nosh them up pretty quickly in comparison to raw hide.
