Minor freak out last evening

I was out in the backyard with Quincy last evening playing our nightly game of fetch with his rope toy thing (it has a purple kong-y like thing in the middle). Well, he comes back and drops the toy for me to throw again. Apparently I wasn't fast enough because he decided to give me a little extra motivation by nudging me with his mouth. I looked at my arm and saw blood and am thinking what the heck! So I look in his mouth and wouldn't you know, he lost two of his lower front baby teeth. In the past, any dogs I have owned have been from shelters, etc and have been older. I have never gone through this losing teeth thing LOL. So I'm all panicked (and I'm sure Q was wondering what my problem was) and I call the vet. The girl on the phone was trying not to laugh, I could tell, but went and asked the vet anyway if he is at the right age to be losing his teeth. Vet says, yes he is (Q will be five months old on the 18th). I have not seen any other teeth come out or any other blood, but I have noticed that he is chewing on his toys a lot more and his eyes are watering more than they normally do.

I looked this morning and can already see the other ones coming up. Poor baby, I probably scared him to death LOL

So that's my freak out so far this week.

We have our third puppy class tonight and, to my dismay, he has not made any puppy friends yet

I will say that last week he at least stood up for himself when the lab puppy tried to get him to play. I kind of think that since the other puppies are so much bigger than he is that he feels intimidated by them. During the first class he was hiding behind everyone and trying to blend into the wall during playtime. The trainer told me that if I picked him up or petted him that he would do that in every class. It took every ounce of willpower I had not to just pick him up and leave LOL.
He is phenomenal with people, he just doesn't seem to want anything to do with the other puppies. Hopefully it will get better!
I guess working from home and living in a quiet place has a downside when it comes to puppy socializing.

So how are everyone else's puppies doing?

Just wait til you start finding teeth on the floor!!! We found a lot of Trooper's, even those dinky ones in the front.

How exciting, even though it caused a momentary freak out!

Trooper is a Moptop boy! If only I could think up a registered name...

Ted still is weary although he puts on a big bark when a dog approaches. In class he gets pretty close. What I liked about our trainer is that she warned the people with the big pups to be on them when they were around Ted. That way I felt slightly better about Ted in with the others and left him to socialize. There are 2 dogs in our class that now lunge so the trainer does not let them off leash except for our off leash exercises. Ted did a fabulous recall last night. His sit is great but his stay and cue to release will again this week be my practise focus. We only have 2 classes left. We are supposed to teach our pups a trick for the last class. He does around and stand but I'm trying to teach him "sneeze" as he does it alot anyhow. I think that would be an adorable trick. Ted is too in a quiet home but luckily there is a not so quiet dog next door to socialize with sometimes. I'm always nervous about it too, to be honest.

Dory, I am so happy to hear you're taking Quincy to class, it is very hard to watch them cower and hide, but he will gain confidence as time goes along also he is learning to trust you. After awhile he will look at you and cue off you, this does not mean he will not respond to danger it just means he will trust you and act according to your cues. remember they are always watching us.

Kallie has lost her 2 upper front teeth. She just looks so darned cute! She lost the 1st on last Fri, and the 2nd one on Monday. Her"big girl teeth" are already popping thru. She's just growing up too fast!! So Kallie, Ted & Quincy are all at the same stage. We have a few others that are about the same age on this forum. Wonder how they're doing?

I really, really hope that he gets more confident. The biggest thing is that I want him to be a happy dog, you know? That's why it was so hard to just let him be a dog LOL.
Oh, I know he's always watching me. He is glued to me wherever I go Love it (although I think hubby is jealous).

I peeked in Q's mouth today and see that those two bottom teeth are already coming in. I also noticed that his top front teeth are probably going to come out next.

I saw last week some teeth coming thru on the top. He is seriously chewing on his sticks and antler this week so I'm sure he is working on some new teeth too!
