Default weird crack-like things on back of teeth?? (pic)

Lara was panting a lot and I noticed some weird lines on the back of her canine teeth. They are smooth to the touch, I just got really paranoid and have no idea what they are. I hope they aren't cracks :/. She's not even 15 months old yet, please tell me I am just being paranoid and this is normal it's very hard to find pics of the insides of teeth online so I couldn't find anything

Here's a link to a pic http://i61.tinypic.com/25qvvyx.jpg (large) and I attached the smaller one here.

I found this link ? Tooth Fracture, Broken dog tooth, Broken cat tooth, Chipped canine

"These are small lines or cracks on the surface of the enamel. They are relatively common in older dogs – especially when they have been working dogs or heavy chewers. Often these need no treatment and may not progress."

It would seem kind of weird if this was the case since she's not an older dog..

It looks like a growth chart!!

I wonder if your pup was chewing on something that scrapped her teeth. It is on all canines or just the one?

yeah the pic on the link looked kind of like it though and it was the only thing I could find that looked similar.

She doesn't chew much. She gets some raw bones and maybe once in awhile she'll chew on a nylabone

No she has a plastic vari-kennel that has zero damage, and we don't have our own yard so she's never outside unattended chewing on things. I don't give her tennis balls because I heard they can cause teeth problems.

She does use her canines to scrape the insides of these kind of bones clean :
