I am the delighted and proud owner of a soon to be eight month old male silver miniature poodle named Chagall. He is a dream dog; clever, affectionate, clean, smart, energetic and quite the clown. He loves people, and food! He's a big boned boy, already nearly 15" and 19.9 lbs. The vet says he's in great shape. He has a retained baby tooth (an incisor) and the permanent tooth is partially in as well. My vet told me to wait another three weeks or so to see if baby tooth comes out on its own, he said it isn't affecting Chagall's bite, but if necessary he'll pull it. My boy's already been neutered so I'm unhappy he may need to be sedated again to pull the baby tooth. I've been giving him marrow bones to chew on hoping the baby tooth will come loose. Anybody have any suggestions or thoughts about what else to try, or how much to worry about this? Many thanks! As soon as I can figure out how to upload his photo, I will. He is of course an incredibly handsome creature!
