On April 27 the Hunter G litter are now two month Otterhounds. Since the weather has been nice the Otterhound pups have been spending all day out in the puppy pen.
They get up between six and seven o’clock and are ready to go out. Once outside the two month Otterhounds run around and potty then want breakfast. After breakfast the puppies run around and play for about an hour then nap. By eleven o’clock they are ready to start all over again – lunch, play, nap.
The pups repeat this again at four o’clock and at seven. Around nine thirty we pick up all the toys and encourage the pups to potty. Once everything is cleaned up we bring the pups into bed.
The pups enjoy playing with their cottage cheese cups and lids which they quickly chew up so they have to be replaced. They also enjoy milk jugs and empty cardboard boxes. They have a four by five foot piece of cardboard to sleep on, chew on or use as a slide.
There is also a four by five foot dog house that they can sleep or play in. They like to sleep between the roots of the tree in the pen as well. On Saturday we locked the big dogs in the pond area and let the pups run in the main yard. They liked all the room to run the only problem was the dog flaps on the porch. Until the pups were shown they could push through the flaps they would stand inside and holler to get out

Hunter’s Graham Evening Star

Pup 3 Female
Hunter’s Gem Of Perfection
Pup three Gem caught me sneaking up on the litter sleeping in the tree roots almost like she was keeping watch over the others sleeping.

Pup 4 Male
Hunter’s Glen In Otter Space

Pup 5 Male
Hunter’s Grady Otterbe Quick
Pup five Grady has developed well. His mid length coat has started to grizzle along the back and his ears are nice and long. He really didn’t care for standing for pictures. He preferred to check things out. He does well with the other pups but is perfectly happy being held. On April 27 Grady weighed 13.4.
Pup 6 Male
Hunter’s Gerald Blackjack for Nancy
Pup six Gerald is still the darkest of the males. His face is looking more mature as he fills out and his ears are developing well.

Pup 8 Male
Hunter’s Gary Otterly Bold
Pup eight Gary is so distinctive with his tan, black and white fuzzy face. He can be right in the middle of things one minute and off on his own the next. While he grumps when first picked up as soon as he knows it is a person and not a sibling he turns on the charm. On April 27 Gary weighed 13.6.
