Here is one of Edison’s deciduous premolars. It was knocked loose during a play date with a large, older and equally deaf Dogo Argentino dog named Oliver. At the time, Oliver was living at the shelter and I would bring Edison to work with me every day so that the two of them could socialize. One afternoon, after returning from the shelter’s dog park, I noticed some bleeding in Edison’s mouth. When I examined his mouth, this premolar was loose. I grabbed a pair of hemostats from my pocket and gentle pulled it out. I’ve kept it as a memento from his puppy days.
