This whole experience was no doubt a bit perplexing for Bucky; he is, after all, a wild squirrel (and trips to the dentist aren't something most folks look forward to). But before long, he seemed to realize it was all worthwhile.
"I took him outside, and he ran to a branch and started rubbing his little cheeks," Talbott said. "It was like he couldn’t believe those teeth were gone. He just kept rubbing his face."
Talbott suspected that Bucky might venture on his way now that he could live a more normal life, but he's apparently chosen to stick around on her property.
"The next day, I saw him back in the feeder — and he had the most amazing little squirrel smile on his face," Talbott said. "He was just so happy."
