baby teeth question

hi all - i finally have a question to ask you!

my eloise is six months old, almost seven. we hadn't been paying much attention to her teeth situation until the other night, when she spat out a perfect, adorable, pointy little canine tooth, which i of course promptly stored in a little box the way my mum used to do with my baby teeth :)

on closer inspection, she seems to have one baby canine tooth left, and it isn't loose at all. now i'm sort of worried because google is indicating that all the baby teeth should be out by now, and if they're aren't they need to be yanked during the spay so that they don't mess up the big teeth. of course elly's already been spayed - just two weeks ago, and they didn't mention anything about her teeth, and we didn't think to ask.

she's a big chewer (bully sticks and the like) and we play a lot of tug, so in theory that should be helping it along, if the tooth is going to come out on its own. still, it doesn't seem to want to budge.

so! has anyone had any issues with their boston's baby teeth?

here's my baby all grown up, or so she thinks :)
