Peanut and his Puppy Teeth

Peanut the poodle and his cozy home

Peanut is now more than six months old. He is growing stronger and getting more and more active.  He is forever biting and chewing things around the house.

We were surprised to  discover recently that his puppy teeth have started to fall out.

I checked out an  article ,WHEN WILL MY DOG'S PERMANENT TEETH COME IN,
written by   American Kennel Club and  found the following passage::

At around four months of age -- and it can vary from breed to breed and even from dog to dog -- the 28 puppy teeth are replaced with 42 adult canine teeth, which include the molars. You will see six incisors on the top and bottom (these are the smaller front teeth located between the large fang-like canines). On the other side of the canines (fangs) along each side of the dog's mouth you have smaller pre-molars for ripping and tearing, and rounding out the line-up are the larger molars in the back for grinding.

How interesting it is.  A puppy is just like a baby with two set of teeth, one temporary and one permanent.
