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?
