    My 3 month old golden retriever Ginger has lost 2 teeth tonight, is this normal? Been awile since I went through this puppy stage. I assume they loose there puppy teeth and make room for the adult ones right? Anyway am just concerned here.

    That is a very normal process in puppyhood now you just need to make sure she has pleanty of chew toys so she don't start to chew stuff you don't want her too

    Serena, you'll love this one! When my first German Shepherd, Purdue, was a pup, he lost his first tooth in my 6 year old (insufferably bratty) little sister's white sweater. There was blood down the white sweater arm, and my Mom, who was still a little freaked by German Shepherds, just knew he'd bitten her Precious Baby. When I got her calmed down and had her pull my sister's sweater off and showed her that there were no bites, Mom didn't quite know what to think, until Purdue came over to see what all the uproar was about and opened him mouth wide in that typical German Shepherd puppy-grin and there was that gap where his baby-canine had been, still bloody. Mom looked in the sweater and found the tooth and felt pretty silly.

    And no, it's no fun to have a four year old bawling and screaming for ANY reason! But it was sweet that she was so worried about her puppy's well being and future ability to eat. I've found, though, that when a child is hysterical about something like that, first you realize that you can't reason with them, then, if they see that you're not worried and even laughing a little, it reassures them that maybe things aren't as bad as they thought, and being curious little creatures, they want to know what you're laughing at.

    Just think how much you're going to enjoy telling that story on her when she's a teenager! (heh, heh, heh ;) )

    umm i found this out about roxy and showed my aunt about it too but im not sure what she is going to do about it. roxy had lost a tooth (front top) and i never found the tooth but i found a hole there. i as kinda freaked out so i checked her other teeth. and i found out all of her front teeth were so wriggly. like her gums were barely holding onto them. im not sure if you all will understand but like when you go to the dentists' and you see that model of the jaw of teeth. and the gums are that clear see-through rubber and teh teeth can be removed and its so wriggly. its jsut like that

    She may just be losing her baby teeth. Try not to worry too much; I know you miss her terribly. This must have been the worst Thanksgiving ever.

    Crazydog, I should've quoted your message in my reply above. Serena thought it was to her post, but it was in answer to your question.

    Roxy is probably just losing her baby teeth right now. She should be the right age for it to start happening.

    Is your Aunt going to keep you posted on how Roxy's doing?

    Oh, Serena ~ that was for poor Crazydog. I know your Thanksgiving must have been a good one with a houseful of German Shepherd pups! What a lot to be thankful for!
