Rooki's rollover smile

This is Roo's giggle face. I checked her teeth and they're almost perfectly white now, which is attributable to eating fresh bones every day. Every time I look at them I remember how her teeth were black when she was a puppy, and Donna from IndiLabs told me that it meant she had never had anything to chew. It still kills me to think of this sweet, practical-joking, laughing girl teething without anyone giving her anything to chew, what it must have been like to have been left alone to get as frightened as she was by some person who didn't even think to let her have so much as anything to chew. It took until about now for her teeth to get white, though there'll always be a trace of the darkness.
