    no, the whole thing is weird. The employee is well over 30. Thoughts about supervisor person developing early dementia have crossed people's minds...so we want to be gentle.

    I'd never put a dog under anesthesia just to do a dental cleaning. There are services out there that will clean your dog's teeth just fine without risking your dog's life by knocking him out.
