Cleaning my teef

My Sunshade is 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,10.5 years old, and she got clean clean teef like this, (Sunshade: I've been rock picking for a living over the past 8 years or so. The wear and tear you see on my bootiful canine are inevitable unfortunately in my line of work.)

I am 1,2,3,3.5 years old, but I no no got clean teef like my Sunshade......

So nice mummy said said lets clean Jaffaman's teef so they look same same as my Sunshade's. She showed me a wittle round thing thing,

I said let me see see what it is ok? (mum: it's a penny.)

Mummy use round thing thing to pull yuckies off Jaffaman's teef, (mum: I use the penny to scrap off the tartar build up.)

See see! Jaffaman got clean clean teefies too like my Sunshade!!!

(mum: Before getting Jaffa, I used to think that raw food keeps a dog's teeth clean because it had little to no carbohydrates. However, I have since learned that it all depends on the individual dog as you can see from the pictures. Sunshade was on a low quality kibble, full of fillers until she was about 2 years old. Her teeth during that time was still pearly white as far as I could remember. She has been on the raw diet since the age of 2, and her teeth have continued to be very clean. I have never had to clean her teeth.

Jaffa on the other hand was fed raw since he was 8 weeks old. He however is not fond of food items that are bigger than his mouth. This means that if I give him a whole chicken thigh/drumstick, he won't eat it unless I cut into bite size pieces. Sunshade would happily chomp down all her raw meaty bones without problem. Jaffa also has a very gentle way of gnawing on bones compared to Sunshade who chews with gusto.

In the end, I still believe the raw food content does keep teeth cleaner than other types of food. However, without proper bone feeding (and chewing/eating as in Jaffa's case), it alone is not enough to keep the teeth clean.)

Me love love my wifey, Webecca and Matt Matt!

Mummy and D-Guy Guy and my Sunshade went to do old old peeple things (Sunshade: old old people things = activities for mature, calm and certainly NO BITEY individuals.)

Jaffaman stay-tayed at my wifey's house. See see, me on right right love my wifey Lola!

(mum: We planned a last minute, 2-day trip down to Washington to visit Microsoft and do some outlet mall shopping. I decided not to bring Jaffa as I know Jaffa would prefer to run/play with Lola instead.)

I love love my mommy in-law Webecca, (Sunshade: it's Rebecca.....)

But me weally weally weally love Matt Matt, weally weally. He call me Jaffa-Dude!

(mum: Matt is Rebecca's boyfriend, and Jaffa absolutely ADORES him. According to Rebecca, if Matt is out by the time Jaffa wakes up, Jaffa looks all over the house for him!)

Me got more more energy than my wifey, so cool Matt Matt took me to play on cold cold mountain wif grandpa in-law and grand uncle in-law!!

Webecca write write to mummy, see see,

The first three (pictures) are from our living room – he was feeling VERY loving towards us. The one of just Jaffa and Lola is SO cute.

The second four (pictures) are from the hike Matt took him on up Cypress Mountain with my Dad and Uncle. Jaffa had so much fun and he was the star of the hike. My dad and uncle aren't natural "dog people" but they loved him and were the ones who kept taking photos of him. Snow at the end of May! As you can see in one of the photos he just stuck with whoever was at the front of the pack. 4 hours up a mountain and he wasn’t even sleepy when he got home. Matt thinks he is a real “jock”.

Jaffa-Dude and my vewy best friend Matt Matt!

(mum: Rebecca had mentioned to Matt about the possibility of getting a second dog for Lola as playmate. Matt didn't grow up with dogs, Rebecca did. So naturally, Matt's reaction was he didn't want a second dog in their apartment. However, after meeting Jaffa for the first time during grooming, Matt told Rebecca that Jaffa was welcome to stay with them anytime. That was a huge compliment from Matt as I was told. Nowadays, if I have to take Sunshade to the vet or to rehab swim, instead of leaving Jaffa home, he goes to play with Lola for a few hours until I get back. Jaffa has not one, but two families that love him. I'm so happy and grateful to Rebecca, Matt, and Lola for being sooo good to my sweet boy!)
