On December 14 the Hunter H litter Otterhounds of Texas were 11 weeks old. They are growing well and spend more time playing (fighting). In fact they are so full of energy they will play until they drop to sleep and recharge.
The puppies are more interesting in fighting and playing until tired, then they enjoy cuddling. They are fast reaching the point where they are too big to cuddle. In fact they have out grown or chewed up their baby collars and received new collars.
