The other day Mum was cleaning out a cabinet and what did she find? My memory box! (Yes, of course, I have a memory box - every dog does, don't they :)

She pulled a few things out, like my first collar (the red one, which didn't last long since I quickly grew out of it) and my second collar (the EarthDog collar made of hemp that I still wear to this day), and my first tags. Then she pulled out my old cast from when I had my broken foot. (Wasn't exactly happy to see that thing after having to wear it for 8 weeks straight. I smelled it a lot!)

And then she dug deeper and found my baby teeth! Here are all the ones she found between October 25, 2004 and November 11, 2004, when (best guess from the shelter) I was right around four months old. You can click on the picture to bigify. Oh, and she found the package from the Chilly Bone that she used to give me to help with the teething process (which is long since chewed up, BTW).

We feel lucky that we found some of my teeth lying around the house. I remember each morning about that time, Mum and I would have a little toofer scavenger hunt. Mum would get up and survey all the carpet in the house looking for little teeth and get so excited when she found one. Then she's individually wrap them in a baggie and put in a little note with the date she found it.

Guess like a lot of pups, I swallowed the rest of them.
