DD, be brave and strong, nothing the dentist can do will last as long as the fortnight long toothache you've already suffered. OUCH!, I am cringing at the thought of that.
Robyn, what can I say but HOORAY!!! You have had so much expense with Nookie and while I know you consider it worthwhile, heck, if anyone deserved a break, you two do. What a genuinely good man that dentist is. Interesting about the red dogs , my last red male cattle dog didn't have good teeth.
