Over the weekend Hobey lost his last remaining puppy teeth. Three of the four molars fell out during puppy playtime at the Dog Den. He left a few red marks on his playmates and a trail of red on the floor, which I promptly wiped up.
This turned out to be perfect timing because he only had a four day supply of puppy food left. He will be transitioning to adult food for the next week. The recipes are very similar; the biggest difference is the size of the kibble.
Since we will be traveling again this weekend, we decided that it would be a good time for Hobey to spend some time without his canine companion; Monte is vacationing up north. We have found that Hobey's ears work a lot better when he is not shadowing Monte. On our walks, he explores on his own while maintaining visual contact with us and returning occasionally to check-in.
