A GLIMPSE of MY PUPPYHOOD

Guess what these are?




One day when I was this little puppy, daddy and I were playing Football on our terrace. I jumped up to nose-kick the ball, as i always did. Suddenly there was blood trickling down the angle of my mouth. Daddy was horrified and instantly guilty, thinking he had broken something with that football.

But guess what? It was just a loose baby tooth that had fallen off!!! I was more intrigued than anything with all the fuss daddy was creating. The bleeding stopped immediately afterwards and over time, my (very lovely) permanent teeth grew back.

Of course mummy kept those two teeth. Actually it is just one tooth and a small chip off another.


(You can see how tiny they are actually)

I don’t know what happened to all the other baby teeth. They had fallen off sometime or the other, without me or Mummy or Daddy noticing.
Mummy is very, very glad and thinks she is lucky she could collect those two. She says it is a part of my puppyhood, preserved forever.





PEE ESS: Sometimes Mummy feels a little bad that we never got to see any of Buddy’s puppyhood. He is a real sweetheart and she thinks he must have been a cutie-pie as a puppy. We could get just one puppy picture of him from his earlier family. Will post it someday for you.
But we are very thankful he is with us now.

Wags,

Cute teeth. Glad your Mom could save some. M wishes she could have seen us as puppies but we were older when M & D rescued us from not so good lives. But it is all good now, we are happy & healthy. That is good.

Gin-Bud's mom :

You should write one blog how you guys met Buddy and how he became a part of your family.. I am sure everyone would love to hear that story!

Wow, puppy tooth! Mom still has some of PlusOne's baby teeth, but don't tell anyone.

If you lived closer mom would definitely share the raspberries with you, no problem. As for why I am called the devil dog, heh heh heh, trust me, there are reasons.
Table dancing comes to mind.

Ginger, you were an adorable puppy! I've heard that most of us eat our puppy teeth. Mom says that when she was a little girl, her border collie lost almost all of his puppy teeth chasing her sister's big wheel and biting the wheel!

Oh, Ginger, we love your baby photo. Puppy teeth are hard to find! Mommy only has one of my puppy teeth. I guess I ate all the others.:)

Love,

That is so sweet. We don't have anything from my babyhood, as I got here only last year from rescue. I'm sorry for the Moms that they don't even have one baby picture because I can tell you, I was adorable.

wags, Lola

Mom has saved some of my puppy teeth and Mitch's too but she mixed them up together so we don't know whose toofies are whose!
You were sure a cute pup, Ginger!

What a cute story, Ginger. Mom was disappointed because she never found any of Ciara's puppy teeth. She just got all her adult teeth so fast - she zoomed right through puppyhood. Hope the tooth fairy brought you some yummy treats.

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

In all the years we've had dogs (and cats) we've only ever found three puppy teeth. I think they swallow them.

Cute puppy pics, Ginger... and your mom is so sweet to save those baby teeth for remembrance. Hope to see Buddy's puppy pic one day.

Licks, hero
