Pappy and I are going to miss doggy school again this week because I'm having what's left of a tooth pulled at 4 pm that day (this Thursday).
Did you know that dental x-rays don't see through porcelain crowns? I didn't until a crown fell off leaving a decayed stump with no hope of attaching another crown.
I always wrongly assumed with regular dental care and repair I could keep my teeth into my old age. If I needed something else to worry about, I'd wonder how the rest of my crowned teeth are doing.
We're seeing the first signs of spring with days temps around 40 F and night temps around 20.
Yesterday there was some thawing and melting. Then the cold night temp froze a crust on the remaining slushy snow. The snow/ice was so solid 65 pound Glory could walk on it without breaking through.
I did break through. We won't talk about how much I weigh.
