Loosing puppy teeth!

Over the past month or so, we've seen Rach loose some teeth, mostly just the front little ones.

We saw that they were missing the day he had a checkup not too long ago, and two days later, BOOM. we saw the replacement teeth. Wow, that's fast!

Yesterday, Mum was outside with Rach playing tug and chase with an old fleece tug of mine. Rach didn't want to tug much. So they switched to playing fetch.

Mum threw out the toy, said, 'get it!,' then 'bring it!,' and Rach did all those things. Then he gets treats for releasing the toy, and what did Mum find when she got the toy back? Blood on the toy, oh to be a puppy tooth mishap.

Here's a shot of the tooth all whopperjawed. With things like this you need to let nature takes it's course. So Mum kept an eye on it, gave Rach a cold wet wash cloth to chew on, and secretly hoped that he wouldn't swallow it (she wanted his tooth for posterity). And what do you know?....

We found it this morning after giving Rach the wet, cool washcloth again.

We can already see the replacement tooth and it's coming in very nicely! And the best part is Rach feels better...and Mum got one of his toofers, yeah! She put it in a baggie and labeled it, adding it to Rach's memory box.


  1. Yay! We're glad that your mom has Rach's tooth to save! Our mom has a few of ours put away in our memory boxes too!

    Love ya lots♥

  2. I remember being completely shocked the first time I found a puppy tooth as a child. I thought I had harmed the dog. Luckily my parents explained the whole process and I didn't have to feel so bad after all. Rach probably does feel a lot better, glad to know it's coming in well.


Thanks for barking in!
