The toothsome tale of a dog named Moses
“I could feel it right away,” she told the Daily Herald in suburban Chicago. “I was fearing the worst.”
Wiersma, 37, broke her left front tooth in the spill. And it was all the fault of Moses.
The next day, Sunday, she called her dentist in Barrington, Dr. Russ Fitton, who encouraged her to find the missing chunk of tooth and bring it in.
She searched the backyard, but couldn’t locate it.
It was later Sunday afternoon, after being let out in the backyard, that Moses came back inside and dropped something at Wiersma’s feet. It was the missing piece of tooth — about 3 millimeters by 2 millimeters in side.
Wiersma said she isn’t surprised Moses found the chunk of tooth. But she is surprised he didn’t eat it.
“He eats everything,” she said.
The dentist cemented the piece of tooth back in place, returning Wiersma’s smile to its natural state.
Moses is forgiven.
