The pups are three weeks old now.

This week has been a week of firsts for the Otterhound puppies.  On Saturday they received their first solid food.  This went over well and they readily took to their second feeding. However it was a lot messier than the first one and as a result they got their first bath.

On Sunday they went outside for the first time.  The Otterhound Puppies enjoyed sleeping in the fresh air.

While pup one is still smaller than the other males he is growing steadily. He is now up to 2.4 pounds. He is lively and stands up to the bigger pups. As you can see he really got into his second solid food.

Pup 2

Hunter’s Harvey Corrigan

Pup two is the only liver male and the largest of the pups. He is now 3.1 pounds. His tendency to hog the choice nursing spot seems to have carried over to the solid food. While he got a lot on him, he also got a lot in him.

Pup 3

Hunter’s Dynamic Celina

3 Celina at 3 weeks, raspberry

Pup three is the only black female. She appears to be giving the camera a raspberry but she probably can’t see as far as the camera yet. She is now 2.7 pounds.

Pup 4

Hunter’s Laird Chilton

Pup 5

Hunter’s Laird Clint

Pup five really got into his second solid food in more ways than one. Here he is getting his first bath. He didn’t object but wasn’t happy about it either. He is now 2.9 pounds.

Pup 6

Hunter’s Merry Celeste

Celeste diva 3 weeks

Pup six is very photogenic. Here she looks like a diva posing for her picture. She is already play fighting with her siblings. She is now 2.6 pounds.

Pup 7 Hunter’s

Taking Moonlight Chances

7 Chance at 3 weeks, second feeding

Pup seven while not the biggest is generally the first and last to eat. He took to solid food right off and even though it looks like he took a header into the dish he ate more than his share. He is now 2.9 pounds.

Pup 8

Hunter’s Sunny Cheyenne

8 Cheyenne at 3 weeks, second feeding

Pup eight is the largest female. She looks like she is wearing as much solid food as she ate but her tummy says she ate plenty. She is now 2.9 pounds.

Pup 9

Hunter’s Dame Clara

9 Clara at 3 weeks sleeping

Pup nine is still the smallest female but not for lack of trying. When they got their first solid food she waded right through the middle of the bowl. She was so full she almost couldn’t get over the edge of the bowl. She is now 2.4 pounds.
