I read on the internet that dogs can lose teeth up to 8 months of age.

Tuffy lost almost the bulk the of his teeth right around that age. He still has 3 retained puppy teeth, but the vet said he doesn't want to pull them until Tuffy has to be put under for something else.

Does Tuffy get things stuck in between the baby teeth and the others? That was the problem I had with Hedwig. I was hoping when I pulled whatever was in there out that a tooth would come with it but it didn't happen...LOL

He really doesn't have a problem with things getting stuck in there. That was main concern but I think since they are all in the front of his mouth and he really chews with the back teeth more he doesn't have a problem. I also brush his teeth pretty regularly so I'm able to keep an eye out for anything that might be amiss in his mouth. My vet did say that he wants to check those teeth every 6 months just to make sure they aren't giving him any trouble or doing stuff they shouldn't. I do wish those teeth would just pop out all of the sudden, but boy are they stubborn little things!

Has your vet looked at this?  I would think leaving the teeth in would mess up his teeth and his bite.

Yeah, he said it's fine right now, no bite problems yet but that eventually they will need to be pulled... but he didn't see a reason to put him under for just that right now. But we are keeping on eye on them to make sure they don't cause any problems.
