The Dental Surgery today was a success... 11 incisors were removed and 2 pre-molars. It appears as though the 12th incisor fell out sometime in the past 2 weeks... (That's just how bad things in his wee mouth were) Those that remained got a proper cleaning and within 15 minutes of the procedures being completed, he woke up and much to the Vet's amazement was hell bent on standing up and walking around.
He's of course on pain meds and antibiotics for the next little while; soft food and no chews... My only concern is no fetch for the next two weeks. Honestly I am already pre-emptively afraid for my life... Santi lives for Fetch and fetch alone....
Thanks to all for your kind words, prayers and positive energy. Any time a dog as small as Santi must be put under for a procedure, there's a risk. He's only 3.5 lbs... it's a very fine line to be walked, but as with his de-peanutization last March, he came through with flying colours.
... and dream of teeth...

As ever I come to you asking for your prayers, positive energy and quick healing vibes. Think of the wee one tomorrow around 2 pm. Please and thank you.
Oh this is rich! Especally when you focus on the fact that it comes from a bunch of men in a culture of 2000 years of cross dressing! How easy it is for the Vatican to place the blame elsewhere... and better still on one of their favourite targets. Seriously, this makes me fucking sick! Do they have any concept of... just how phenominally stupid they continue to make themselves look?!?!

Well this is better, some positive news...
The Vet there says to hold off on the Biopsy for the moment and do more blood work to compare the results from the first two sets.
I talk to Santi's regular Vet demain to see where we go from here but for sure, no Liver Shunt, no inflammation, no abnormal shape or size...
It's true it could still be something internal that does not show, however with more specific blood tests this could be detected, and the Vet at the hospital tonight said there's really no reason to postpone the teeth extraction any further...
We'll see what the Vet says in the morning.
Thanks to all for your continued positivity.

This weekend is all about the little stink mouth... spoil spoil spoil... so pretty much business as usual.
Hey... Anyone got $600 kicking around that they don't need? :-)
I have to take him to a specialist for an ultrasound and a biopsy on some liver tissue before they will proceed.
This is not entirely bad news, but it’s not good.
I pick him up tonight and take him home… stinky breath, teeth and all. And play fetch with him til one of us passes out… I’m putting money on my passing out first… you’d be wise to do the same.
We got up early nice and early (6:30)l he kept doing was going over to his food dish… or where a food dish would be…then looking at all “WTF? Where’s my food dude?!”
We got dressed, me in jeans and a grey polo (thank god for Casual Fridays…Especially on a Thursday), he in his Orange Wouppie Groovy shirt from BHV-La Niche in Paris. (It’s very important to look your best at all times!) We arrived a bit early and did a little walk around the Vets and dropped off a little new here and a little bomb there…
They opened the doors at 9 and we went inside. He was soon whisked off for his first blood test and then came running back onto my lap. 10 Mins later they gave him a Tbs of food which he inhaled faster than either Chachi or Flea could ever try… And then a quick re-cap of recent health effects, a weigh in tipping the scales at 1.6 kg and his temperature (normal) And a few signatures later He was taken to the back. I signed a few papers and that was it.
By now he’s had his second batch of blood work and those have been sent off to the lad. I should hear back about the results by 2 pm, at which point I’ll update y’all again
So far, so good.
Thanks for all your support and love… and for now I ask ya to think happy thoughts and send ‘em to Santi.
I'm fortunate enough to be able to have support and take care of my Santi, but Casey is in far more dire straights and can use your help. While I'm only asking for your positive thoughts for Santiago, I'm asking that you donate to help Casey.
