A tooth for a tooth


The Tooth Fairy has paid Pippi a visit!

I’m sure that plenty of her 28 baby teeth have fallen out already but this was the first one found on the carpet after a particularly vigorous tug-of-war session.

A tiny, but very sharp incisor (I think). It would explain all the excessive chewing on clothes, hands, noses and anything else she can get her teeth into.

The tiny tooth

It was news to me that dogs lost their baby teeth before they got all 42 adult gnashers. Apparently it takes longer for small dogs to develop theirs, so there might be a bit of a wait for the chewing to subside. I’m so sorry shoes.
