Well, the same painful cuteness that happened when Sadie was a puppy just happened with Marly. She lost a tooth and I stepped on it…barefoot. In case anyone is wondering, puppy teeth are insanely sharp. Particularly the edge that is up against the gum line – it is like a kitchen knife. The funny thing is, this one was also a molar tooth just like Sadie's. At least I didn't step on it on hardwood floor like I did previously…the carpet helped with enough give that it didn't actually break the skin this time.
The tooth loss also explains the extra ooky toys lately. I have been having to rinse or wash them daily to clean off…well, grossness. Now I think it is time for an ice-cube treat for Marly.
