Max and Honey

Please note the adorably placed paw.

After mouth surgery, Max gets a comforting paw. They needed to pull 11 teeth! The patient is doing fine thanks to great care by his nurse, Honey.

After thinking they were pulling two teeth, I got the call from the vet. Eleven-thirteen needed to come out. We adopted Max in December. The previous owners were moving out-of-town. My only thought at the time of the call was, what were they feeding this dog? Candy? I later found out that these small breeds are prone to tooth problems. I told the vet to go ahead, what was I going to do at that point, say no? Poor little thing,  he was already under anesthesia. After I got off the phone, I put away the vacation brochures.
