The H Litter ten week Otterhounds went to the vet on December 7. They went in for their second round of shots.
While there they had blood drawn for the health study and CHIC DNA Repository. They also had swabs taken for the Glanzman’s test. They were mostly good about it though a couple of the girls would not be still. They all enjoyed visiting with the veterinarian and staff.
The H Litter Otterhound Puppies love to eat and finish off their meals in a hurry. Once finished with meals they are eagerly looking forward to a treat ball as a chaser :). They get up around six AM and are eager to get fed and take care of business. Then it is play time.
They play anywhere from an hour to two hours before they collapse for naps. Then it is up again for lunch between eleven and twelve and repeat. The next meal is around four thirty it is somewhat larger as we have been cutting back on the fourth meal. Soon they will switch to three meals a day. They go to bed between nine and ten and after a good wrestle they settle down and sleep through the night. They will soon be ready for new homes.

If you are interested in a puppy please fill out our puppy questionnaire. We would love to see our Otterhound puppies shown or in competition, however, the biggest consideration is what’s best for the puppy. Everyone interested will be given due consideration. However, not everyone will get a puppy as there are more requests than puppies.
