On January 11 the D litter Otterhound Puppies turned 4 weeks old . A lot happened in four weeks.
They switched from nursing to eating “solid” food, otherwise known as puppy mush. They went from once a day feedings to four times a day. The first meal was in their box but they quickly moved from there to a pen that was easier to clean.
They have begun to play for short periods and have discovered toys, mainly toilet paper tubes and sock monsters.
