DIY Puppy Pearly Whites

Okay, so let me be honest. The toothpaste is DIY. The actual usage of the paste on our canine children is definitely a two person job! Hopefully your pups will enjoy getting their teeth brushed more than ours do. (Please note: one of our doggies is happy to EAT the toothpaste; he just doesn’t appreciate the rotating […]
