    We've only had the pointy canine teeth remain.
    About the picture-- aren't the first teeth a bit smaller than the ones behind?

    Hi Sandy,

    Yes, the teeth in the front row are smaller than the back row, and I'm not sure if that's because those are the small baby teeth, or because they are the adult teeth barely growing out? The Vet didn't say & we didn't ask either

    This is so strange-looking, isn't it? You should've seen my reaction when I just saw them! I'm new to dogs, and this definitely surprised me as I'd never even imagined such a thing. LOL! (Of course, not that it makes one difference to us, as he's still our sweet, cute, little baby. )

    I've seen this with dogs and with people. You may find that some of the baby teeth fall out before the doc pulls them. (I would say that the front row of littlier teeth are the baby teeth being pushed forward by the larger adult teeth growing in behind.)

    Do any of the lil teeth wiggle-- this is how we removed the baby teeth on a couple of our cavaliers.

    You could always tie a string to the tooth and a doorknob too... I used to be terrified that I would have to have teeth removed this way.

    I only ever found ONE of Jaspar's baby teeth when they came out. I gave it to a friend's young son who thought it was really cool.

    I never saw any of Jake or Shelby's baby teeth. I know where they went And I'm sure I picked them up with little plastic bags.
