Our poor beloved Sammy had to visit the doggy dentist this week to have a wee bit of work done to improve his smile (and his breath!).  After a night on the couch with his favourite squishy toy firmly between his gums, he was back in form the next day ready for action.  Have a great weekend everyone!
