I Think We're Almost Done

...with puppy teeth, that is!

closeup of Alfie's snout; his mouth is open so you can see a nice row of big teeth on the bottom
Look, I've got big-kid teeth now!

Here's a sample of some of the "presents" Alfie's been leaving around the house for us to discover lately.  It hurts when you step on one of those big back teeth barefoot, let me tell you!

an assortment of seven various little puppy teeth in the palm of my hand
How many dog biscuits should the tooth fairy give for these, do you suppose?

As far as I can tell, there's just one baby tooth hanging on...a canine that's trying to "double up" with the new one coming in right beside it.  Hopefully it'll drop out soon also.

With the advent of some glorious spring weather, I've been trying to get outside and do some chores...pruning, weeding, and all that good stuff.  Alfie has become a sort of self-appointed yard inspector. 

Alfie stands in a bare spot in one of the flowerbeds, head cocked curiously to one side, a quizzical look on his face
Hey, what happened to the bush that used to be right here?

closeup of Alfie's happy face as he gets all comfy lying in a flowerbed...probably squishing whatever brave plant is attempting to grow there!
If you don't want anyone sleeping here, then why is it called a flower BED?

Have a great week's wishing you some spring sunshine!

Alfie lying happily in the sun, mouth a patch of grass that's actually starting to green up!

Aw, thanks for the compliments, guys. I'm sure Alf's blushing under all his fur... :-)
