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.
