The puppies all have names now based on cities and towns in Texas and jazz terms in honor of their dad.
And on October 12 the Hunter H litter of Jazz Otterhound puppies were two weeks old. A lot has happened in the past week. The pups have gone from squirming around on their tummies to getting up on their wobbly legs and staggering around the whelping box.
They have all more than doubled their birth weigh. In fact they have grown so much they had to have new collars. Over the last three days they all have opened their eyes but are still not seeing clearly.
The Jazz Otterhound puppies can still be very vocal but sleep quietly a lot of the time which makes it easier on everyone. On the 12th Diana went in for a check up and the puppies went along. They got to meet a lot of people and took it in stride.
