little nippers

How does that song go again? "Never smile at a crocodile.."

These are some of my baby teeth. The premolar (left) and incisor (right) were never the real problem. It was those lovely canines of mine that caused the most woe. They may not look sharp when the camera gets close-up, but they punctured plenty of skin in their day.

My classic move, which started at about 8 weeks and went on until... well... last week was to suddenly launch myself at my parents' face and grab them by the nose. This move had two essential components - surprise, and hooking a canine into their nostril. The idea was to have them clutching their nose wondering if they now had an extra-large nostril.

I got put off this game by a young collie-cross at my puppy class who grabbed me by the nose REAL HARD. I think I learned a little perspective after that. My parents joke they should have just bitten me sooner.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a real sweetie most of the time. Honestly!


  1. I have some of mine milk tooth too but they are much more smaller than yours. :p


  2. You have big teethies Mojo. Me like bitey wrists most. Me starts puppy playschool on Saturday and mummy says me be bitten by other puppies so me learn no bitey bitey hard.

  4. Mojo:

    Nice teethies - be very selective on the bitie trick - We can tell you from experience Mum bites BACK-

    Our technique is BITE AND RUN - give a whirl on the other pups just run fast

  6. Hi Mojo,

    What great puppy teeth you have! Mom saved my teeth (at least the ones she could find). Yours deffinately got worked out quite well. Nothing is better than bitey face with the hoomans! Keep on chomping!

    Your pal,

  7. I'm learning so many tips from you Mojo! I like the idea of a surprise attack on my humans. It's always good to keep them on their toes! Hehehe! J x

  8. Aaaaw we know you're a real sweetie pie Mojo. You must be tricking us with that nostril story lol.

  10. Mojo!!

    It's amazing what a little perspective can do for you (though it's usually not fun while GAINING that perspective).

    Your gnashers look pawsitively ENORMOUS compared to my sissy's. Hers are no less lethal, though, I'm sure.

    Goober love,

  11. Hey pretty Mojo, I've given you a rose - check out my blog!
