My Mum has a tooth missing and a denture which she hates, so only ever wears it when she leaves the house.
She also has two lovely dogs, Tasha and Tamba.
...and? I hear you ask.
Anybody who has a dog will know they have their 'signal' for when it's time for walkies, usually the picking up of their lead at which they will get super duper excited.
My Mum's dogs are no exception.
Only their 'signal' for walkies is .... the tooth!
Whenever my Mum picks it up, they're up, tails wagging, snorting and heading for the door.
It really makes me smile to see their little faces light up at the sight of it.
I can just imagine them excitedly geeing each other up with, "Come on!
she's got the tooth, SHE'S GOT THE TOOTH!!"
