Cooper’s Pearly Whites

One of Cooper’s best qualities has always been that million-dollar smile. 

That big goofy ever-present grin is plastered across his face more often than not.  It lights up a room, and is utterly contagious. 

Unfortunately, after last week, that sensational smile will never be the same again.  See if you can spot the difference:

See it?  No?   How about a close-up, one side at at time.  First, the right:

Now the left:

See it now?  Cooper’s bottom left K9 is broken!  We noticed it when we picked him up from boarding after our recent trip, so we can only guess that it happened there somehow.  We took him to the vet, and we all agree that for now we’re just going to keep an eye on it and watch Cooper for signs of pain (holding his head to the side while eating, swollen gums, or blood in the water dish).  Since the K9’s have such long roots, we don’t want to remove the tooth if we don’t have to.  If it starts to bother him or we begin to see signs of infection, it’ll have to go. 

Cooper’s smile is still beautiful and infectious, and now it’s just one more thing that makes him one-of-a-kind.

  1. Oh no! I bet dogs hate the dentist just as much as we do, so I hope it doesn’t bother him! He’s still handsome as ever.

    When we adopted our dog we found out that he has healed fractures on his back teeth, a chip in one of his canines and all his bottom front teeth are chipped. He’s now 5 and it hasn’t ever seemed to bother him. Hopefully it won’t affect Mr. Cooper that much either! He still had an adorable smile!
