Two Sibes, Two Techniques

Hello, everyone.  It's me, Cammie.  Mags and I have a much different approach when it comes to having our teeth brushed and we thought we'd share a little comparison with you today.

Mom knows that I strongly prefer the poultry-flavored toothpaste over the mint - and that I like the big, blue toothbrush.  She loads it up, then we go to it! It goes something like this:

"Ready, Cam?"
"Ready, Mom!"

That poultry flavor is irresistible!  Mom brushes up and down and down and up ...

"Und de bunk onezzz..."

Sorry.  I meant "and the back ones".  I want to make sure Mom gets all of my teeth!  It's hard to talk with a toothbrush in your mouth!  Sorry, too, for the poor quality of the photos; Mom was brushing and shooting at the same time.


The brushing feels so good - and I just LOVE that toothpaste!  Both Mags and I come running when we hear the door open to where Mom stores our toothbrushes and toothpaste!  For Maggie, though, things go a little ... differently!

As soon as Mom shows Mags that yes, it's toothbrushing-time ...

"Time to brush my teeth?!?"
"Yep!  Ready, Mags?"

The way Maggie looks at it, if the purpose is to get the toothpaste on her teeth ...

"Let's skip the middle-man and just let me eat the toothpaste, huh, Mom?"
"Maggie?!?  The cap, Maggie!"

"Oh, I can chew right through that baby!  Let's make sure we get my molars!"

Sigh.  She eventually does use the toothbrush (hers is the rather chewed-looking one...) and they get the job done.  Oh. And she likes the mint-flavored one.

So ... that's how each of us approach toothbrushing!  We both love it - but go about it differently!  How about all of you?  Do you like having your teeth brushed?



  1. Me and Stanley get our teeths brushed EVERY night before we go to bed. We like the chicken flavor the bestest!!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  2. WE like to have OUR teefs brushed TOO.
    We use Chicken Flavored paste.. YUMMMMMMMMM
    HEY MOM..... can you grab our brushes and Paste and come here... we have a hankering fur Brushing now.

  3. Toothbrushing????? Our mom can't even imagine how much we would dislike that! Every once in a while, she gets going at our molars with a washcloth, and mostly hopes the dental chews are doing their job. That must be some pretty darned tasty paste!

  4. BOL - Mom says it can be a bit of a wrestling match to get that done here. Ciara is very good about it, but Lightning becomes a dancing warrior - out of my mouth!!! Mom has the best luck with him with the finger brush. And Phantom, well, Mom does try, but sometimes you just have to let the old boy alone.

    Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

  5. Hi Cammie, I've really got to work with Hunter on this-he loves the flavor of the toothpaste but hates having the brush in his mouth. I do use dental chews for him and knuckle bones as well, when I can find them small. I'm so impressed with both of you.
    Hey, how's the weather in your area? It has been snowing quite heavily today, so we are inside(heat is up); stew for dinner and lots of hot tea. I got to sew today but getting ready to have dinner.
    Have a fantastic Sunday.
    Wags, Noreen & Hunter

  6. I like your enthusiasm - please tell my cat that he might like get his teeth brushed. BOL!

    The Miss loves tooth-brushing too!! :) She has tried only mint flavor and I guess she would go crazy for other flavors. We should try!

  8. hee hee! our style is more like Maggie's. we just want to eat the tooth paste :)
