Four Month Old Otterhound Puppies spend most of their time outside with the other dogs. Twice a day before breakfast and again before dinner we let everyone run down at the pond.
The puppies were nine weeks old on February 15 and went in for their second round of shots. They also had blood drawn for the health study and were micro chipped. Since the weather has been nice they have been spending most of their time outside and loving it. They get to play with momma until she gets tired of them and they play with the Hide -A -Bee. They are really developing well and have begun to show their different personalities.
The pups turned eight weeks on February eighth. It was a busy week. As the weather had been nice and in the 60’s they got to go out often. Being outside had a lot of benefits but also some draw backs. Like any toddler everything went into their mouths. It was great as long as it was bulas and toys…
They loved playing with the bulas, tugging each other around, playing keep away and just chewing on them. Other things that went in their mouths were not so great as they ended up with upset digestive systems. That meant a round of antibiotics. They didn’t mind they loved the bubblegum flavor. After being outside they enjoyed warming up on the back porch.
