Happy New Year from the D Litter and are now January Otterhound puppies! The new year has seen great strides in the development of the D litter. All of the puppies have their eyes open and move around as if they could see. At this stage they see more with their noses than their eyes. Their noses only stop when they sleep. The silly flaps they had a birth have developed into recognizable ears.

They also now have names. Like the B and C litters before them the D litter gets their D names from towns and cities in Texas.
