Tastes Like Poulet

Spiceboy and Betty have just gotten home from the vet.

"How'd it go?" I ask from my post on the bed.

"Betty has plaque."

"I didn't know dogs could get plaque," I say.

Spiceboy tosses a package onto the bed with a wry smile.

"Is that...a doggie toothbrush and toothpaste?" I ask.

"Yep," says Spiceboy.

"You're telling me that I have to brush my dog's teeth?"


"How do you brush a dog's teeth? What does doggie toothpaste taste like? Is it mint-flavored?"

"Actually," Spiceboy says, reading the package. " It's chicken-flavored."

"Mmmm. Tasty."
