We’ve been best friends with dogs for thousands of years. We have evolved together through the ages, and somehow, we have started to adopt each other’s traits. Surprisingly, one of the things that we have in common is the dislike of going to the dentist.
However, according to studies, only 15% of Americans dislike going to the dental clinic, and the reported reason is that it causes fear and anxiety. It’s a pretty small percentage if you ask me, but it’s enough to pass on the trait to our furry friends. One of the pups who hate going to the dentist, is this handsome boy, Fritz.
Maybe under a different circumstance, Fritz would be more open to the idea, but the problem is Fritz was tricked into going to the dentist. His mom, Bret Mortimer, told him that they were going to the park for some playtime. Just like any other doggo, Fritz was ecstatic about the supposed activity.
To his dismay, his mom drove past the park and went straight to the dentist. A place that he ultimately dreads. If you are a dog parent, you could understand why Bret had to betray Fritz like that. Once dogs realize you will be taking them to these kinds of places, they act out. So the only way for her to make his pup go is to trick him.
Going to the vet or the dentist is essential to maintaining our dogs’ health. So one way or another, they have to go. Typically, dogs act as if nothing happened afterwards. But Fritz had a chip on his shoulder when he hopped back into Bret’s car, and he was ignoring her.
It was adorable and heartbreaking at the same time. Bret recorded everything on her phone, and no matter how many times she called his baby, he wasn’t giving her the time of day. The video had 2 million views on Twitter in just one week! Well, Fritz’ heart may be broken, but at least his teeth won’t be. We’re sure he’ll forgive her soon.
