>> Rachel: Good morning! It’s time for Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show. Today we’re howling with happiness because it’s PETS WEEK!  


But before we start talking about our furry friends, start brushing on the top of your mouth on one side and brush the inside, outside and chewing side of each tooth. 


>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!!


>> Rachel: Alright everybody, keep it down!  We want people to be able to hear our QUIZ question! 


Which of these animals is NOT a type of dog? 


Is it: 


An Alaskan Malamute 



A Maine Coon


Or 


Bichon Frisé


To figure it out, let’s learn more about every human’s best friend, DOGS! 


But first, switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth and keep brushing. 


Dogs are often called “man’s” best friend and for good reason! Dogs have been hanging out with humans for a REALLY LONG TIME! (SFX BARK BARK) Ancient humans and dogs used to go on hunts together: The dogs would help keep the humans safe, and the humans would share the food they found with the dogs. Those ancient dogs from long, long ago are like the great-great-great-great-GREEEEEEAAAAAAT grandparents of the dogs we keep as pets today. 


Switch to the bottom of your mouth, and brush the molars in the way back


The dogs we keep as pets today are what we call DOMESTICATED animals. Domesticated animals are ones we’ve trained to live with humans. Any animal we keep as a pet, or that lives on a farm, can be called a domesticated animal. And there are LOTS of types of domesticated DOGS, over THREE HUNDRED. From tiny chihuahuas (SFX TINY DOG) to giant Mastiffs (SFX BIG DOG BARK)! 


Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth, and brush your front teeth too. 


So now that we know a little more about our canine companions, it’s time to make a choice.


Which of these is NOT a type of dog? 


Is it 


An Alaskan Malamute 



A Maine Coon


Or 


A Bichon Frisé 


You’ll have to come back to Chompers tonight to find out. Until tonight, rinse with water before you 


>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit!
