A Public Service Announcing and a floppy tongue lady dog

Last Wednesday I posted some photos of my cousin Tater Tot. We no looks very much alike, for I is a dog and she is unfortunately a catses. Today I introduces you to my floppy tongue cousin Winnie.

What does you mean we looks nothing alike? We is obviously twin cousins.
Perhaps I has taken some liberties with the definition of "cousin." Cousins can be based soley on specific characteristics, like a tongue. So yes, that is the correct definition. Anyway, Winnie is a hospice dog at Wisconsin Chihuahua Rescue who has many beloveds. She is thirteen years old (maybe I is that old too, I no knows), and she gots some medical problems, most obviously how she has losted all of her tooths (I still gots nine left). All the volunteers loves this pretty lady, and I loves her too. Her tongue flops bravely to the side - just like mine!

This is a file photo from Christmas, my tongue looks great!
All I is here to say is that while floppy tongue beauties like me and Winnie is the adorablest thing ever, we has our floppy tongues because we no gotted good dental care in our youths. If you is a breed of dog who is prone to tooths problems, like one of those listed belows, please go get your dentals taken care of! If you is currently the President of the United States, please you can write "universal dog dental health coverage" into whatever bill you is about to sign?

This has been a Rare Public Announcing from me, Reuben.

PeeS. This year's Blogville Olympicals has truly been the most awe-inspiring yet. This is because it is my first year, and I has a great awe for the many talented and brave contestants! 

PeePeeS. Mama says my dental surgeries is scheduled for next week. In some unrelated newses, I will be hiding from her all of next week. 


  1. Aw Winnie sure is precious and of course, you two are IDENTICAL!!
    Your family sure consists of lots of floppy tongues!

  2. Good luck with your dental surgeries while hiding Reuben. Hope it all goes well for you!

  3. Hi Reuben, thanks for visiting me. I hope we can be pals now. It was very nice also to meet Winnie. My Mommy and Daddy grew up in Wisconsin, we live in Michigan now. I hope you find a good hiding spot and make sure to grab snacks and plenty of water, maybe a comic book or 2.

    Loveys Sasha

    smoochie kisses

  15. Dear Reuben,

    Do I really have to let my person brush my teeth? I hate this. Sometimes she gives me special things to chew on for my teeth instead. I like this much better. Does this still count as taking care of my dentals?


  16. Very good of you to do a PSA. Dental care is very important.

    Good luck next week! Hope your dental surgery makes you stop hurting!!!

    your pal,

  17. Reuben, you and Tater Tot need to check out the medal presentation in Competitive Napping. Seriously.

  18. Thank you for the PSA. I'll be honest, I don't brush my dog's teeth, but I do give them healthy bones to gnaw on and no issues so far. Need to get on top of things, though. A reminder is always good.

  19. We like your floppy tongue but we will make sure our mom brushes our teeth so we will have healthy teeth and good smelling breath!

  20. Thanks for the Public Service Announcing, hope it will help other dogs save their teeth. Winnie is beautiful, you have the same cute expressions!

  21. I missed this post during the week! A great PSA. I would be hiding from my momma too!
