And we didn't forget to give Dougie the Dentist an illustration of his own. Here he is, molar and all:
Now, of course, it's Thimble's turn to take over Thursday. Remember last week, when we told you guys how we had to do some rearranging in Thimble's beloved library in order fit my grandma's table that I inherited? Well, Thimble's favorite desk was relocated from our library to my bedroom. Don't worry, though, as Thimble stills love to reign over all from that desk of hers.
Instead of watching over books while on the desk now, though, she keeps watch out her new favorite window. That, and she watches this mom of hers sleep.
I often awaken to see Thimble's cute little face staring down at me. I'm okay with that.
Of course, for Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, Thimble wants to express how happy she is to have a desk of her very own. She doesn't care in which room it is, just that it is hers and hers alone.
We are all thankful for so much. We are grateful for our home, for each other, for our family, and of course for friends like you!
Our Tip of the Day:
Have you ever heard of bruxism? It is essentially another term for grinding one's teeth, and it can affect not only us humans but also our furbabies. If you ever see your kitty or pup moving his or her mouth in a teeth-grinding fashion, or if you ever hear the sound of their teeth grinding, be sure to monitor them and of course consult your veterinarian. Though in some cases bruxism might not indicate anything abnormal, it often is indeed a symptom of a deeper issue. Bruxism, as well as accompanying salivating or other noticeable symptoms, could be an indication of oral pain. It could point to issues such as an infected tooth, an oral abscess, gingivitis or stomatitis, or even severe tartar buildup. In addition, bruxism could occur if their is pain elsewhere in the body, such as in the gastrointestinal tract or even the pancreas. Don't take those teeth for granted, and be sure to consult a veterinarian if you have concerns for your furbaby's dental health!
