    Although I lamented her growing up so fast, I won't miss the teething. More teeth came out today. I think I've seen four of them, including today's, but I'm sure she's swallowed some along the way. She wants to chew on different textures trying to find relief including many off the menu items. It's tiring checking out everything she grabs.

    This teething is serious business. She prefers to lie on a towel for any kind of treat or chew, such a little princess, no off the carpet eating for her.

    She's got such lovely colouring! You've got quite a while to go yet for the teething, I think Finnie's canines came in between 5-6 months but the molars take even longer before they're all out.
    I don't think I found a single tooth of Finnie's...he ate them all lol.

    Tug toys are great for capturing puppy teeth. I think I have at least one from the boys but not Dixie as she was pretty much done when I got her and wasn't much into tugging either.....

    Fillion started teething late, and it took forever. The frozen wash cloth twisted into a braid or circle was my life saver!

    Exactly my first thought when I saw the picture of little Willow :yes:

    Agree! She's got a beautiful coat coming in!

    We were wondering when teething would hit gang busters - won't be sad for these tiny, razor sharp teeth to go away!

    Great idea. I'm going to give it a try with Willow.

    You can also freeze yogurt in a small kong, or even baby food from the little jars. All of mine loved to teeth on those. If you do buy yogurt, just make sure it doesn't have any artificlal sweetener in it, which is toxic to dogs.

    Willow is just such a cutie!
