Waste not, want not?

So Gail, I see we now have three tubes of my toothpaste. Why is that?

Er, well to be honest Bertie, when I was in the pet supplies shop earlier today I remembered that we are near the end of the current tube, but I forgot we already had one in reserve.

Hmmm. Three tubes represents an awful lot of tooth brushing. As you know, it is not my favourite process, but I'll concede the liver flavouring does make the toothpaste taste quite nice.

Well I'm pleased it meets with your approval Bertie.

I have an idea Gail. You should use the toothpaste yourself! That would help deal with the surplus. After all, I have noticed you are quite thorough and enthusiastic in your approach to dental hygiene, and I know you like liver almost as much as I do.  

Honestly Gail, I am quite happy to share.

Now why are you making that face Gail?

Dear readers, does your human ever reject your well-intentioned and generous offers for no good reason?

And has your human ever tried your toothpaste?


  1. sure... they did... but they refused to eat kibble instead of smoked salmon... scandalous...

  2. No, I don't think she has, Bertie.
    Not sure what I'm missing, but I don't get my teeth cleaned at all. My human had such a battle with all the other Labs, when she tried, that she gave up. Apparently they all either spat it out or tried to eat the toothbrushes!
    She says that if I'm really keen, then there might be an unopened tube still lurking somewhere in the back of my treats cupboard, but I don't think I'll take her up on the offer!

    Crikey Bertie lad, Gail has taken up gurning, it seems! Mind you, my face might have looked a little like that when I read your offer also... sorry mate, but that comes close to being offered monkey steaks in Nigeria...there are just some barriers that need no crossing! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

  4. We had to laugh at Gail's face☺ My mom wouldn't like liver flavored toothpaste either, Bertie.

  5. BOL BOL BOL Bertie you are a very funny WFT. Just the thought of liver in my toothpaste gives me the very same expression as Gail.
    Trying to brush Madison D. Cats teeth came with a hazardous to your health warming. I had a 'brush' that fit on the tip of my index finger. It was made of very tough rubber. I was supposed to put the fishy paste on the tip of the finger brush to let her chew on it WHICH she did and promptly chewed thru it the first time. So I opted out of brushing but she ate some treats that did the trick. Madi had very pearly white teeth that surprised the vet.

  6. We think our mom's face would look the same if we asked her to taste liver flavored toothpaste. Let's hope Gail doesn't double up on your daily brushings just to use all that stuff. BOL!

  7. Hahaha maybe you and your mom could go on a tour and do your comedy routine. Made me laugh out loud especially Dale's expression. I would feel that way about liver toothpaste also. I do like liver and onions cooked but not as a toothpaste in fact my face looks just like Dale's right now

  8. Humans are kerazy sometimes, aren't they, Bertie?

  9. Mom has on occasion tried our cookies, especially the gingerbread and pumpkin ones, but toothpaste - Nope Never Not Happening.

  10. We love Gail's face! Our peeps neglect us and don't do this so no, they have never tried it.

  11. Ah, there is a very good reason for Gail rejecting your sweet offer, Bertie!

  12. Pocket: For me that would be a tube for each tooth.

  13. Ewwwwwww, poor Gail! But more toothpaste for you Bertie!
