Volt Is Forty One Weeks Old

Volt weighed 32.2kg on the vet’s scale this morning, so there’s a small gain on last week but I think his weight has once again stabilised for a while.

He is eating 190g Purina One All Breed Puppy Formula twice a day but if I let him he’d eat all day! Typically Labrador, he LOVES his food.
The histiocytoma on Volt’s head is healing nicely, and I continue to doctor it with Bactroban twice a day.

On Tuesday we had some excitement when it snowed in Gauteng! Here where we are we only got a tiny bit compared to some areas, and the puppies were not bothered by it at all. Volt was trying to catch the few that blew past his face when we were outside, but he and Riddick quickly resumed their game and ignored the snowflakes.
