Jenna has stinky breath

Poor missJenna has an infection in her mouth, and it is spreading to the other side.  Mom took her into the vets yesterday. So the vet gave Jenna a shot for the pain, and told mom to give her some pills twice a day. Then Jenna has to go back to the vet next Wednesday to have her teeth cleaned and such. The vet also said that there is a possibility that she could loose her canine teeth, but he won't know that for sure until he gets in there and checks everything out. He's even willing to work with mom on the bill. That's very nice of him, since mom said that it could cost alot of money.  Does that mean we won't have our dog food or treats? I hope not. Mom says we will still get our food and some treats. That hopefully it won't cost her a arm and a leg. How can it cost an arm and a leg, if is actual money? That doesn't make sense to me.

Jenna, along with Dannii and I, are always out for food, we don't care who has it, we want it, and we want it now. This here picture is showing how much Jenna is after some food that someone has. If you notice down at the bottom of the picture, Dannii and I are just standing there looking for a hand out. We haven't figured out which method works the best, but we all got something to eat.

Dannii and I will have to have our teeth cleaned too, but not right away, as mom will have to get Jenna's bill paid off first. She's hoping her settlement will come through very soon, so then she can get us dogs into the vet before Christmas.  Personally, I could care less.  Basenji's in the wild don't go to the vet's, even when they have bad rotten breath, and teeth!  Why should we have to go?  Jenna, I can understand, her breath is so bad, that nobody wants to be around her. But, Dannii, and I, we don't have bad breath, so why do we have to go?

You all come back again, ya hear?


  1. Dear Zak,
    I'm sorry about Jenna's icky tooth infection that is making her have bad breath. I think she will feel lots better after your mom had paid an arm and a leg to get it fixed, although I never had a tooth infection, personally, but I have heard that they are very painful. My brother Barry ripped some of his teeth out when he was in a crate during a thunderstorm one time, and he does just fine without them, so tell Jenna that she can still eat lots of treats and yummy dog food even if she doesn't have all her teeth.
    Your friend, Piper

  2. Oh no! Not the canines!

    Don't worry, you'll still be all canine even without your canines. But hopefully it won't come down to that.

  3. I'm glad you made it back shibasenji! Yes, poor Jenna will still be a canine without any canines! HA, funny. We subscribed to your blog, mom likes reading to us about your shiba and basenji.
