I know it has been a while since you last heard from me. I had just recovered from surgery on my palate and was waiting to get my permanent teeth so I could have my dental assessment. Because of the malformation of my jaw there was concern that I would need a lot of dental work – teeth extractions or caps. SCARS would like to thank Dr. Martin Schiebel for donating his veterinary expertise and monitoring my progress.

Now, none of my teeth meet the way they should and I don’t chew like a normal dog. But at this stage it looks like dental surgery isn’t in my future. My lower teeth are small, just like my jaw, but that is helping me out as they are not hitting my palate or damaging my upper teeth. Because I can’t chew properly I have to have my teeth brushed daily, to maintain healthy teeth and gums, which isn’t a big deal when you think about it.

The even bigger news in my life is that I have found my forever home. No, you didn’t miss me being posted. Since August, I have woven my way into the hearts of my foster family with my goofy antics, winning personality, messy eating, and of course my snoring, they really really like that.

So I have been home for a while now. Some might say I am not perfect, but perfection is in the eye of the beholder. After all, we are all different parts of broken, yet at the very same time beautifully whole.
