I am a new basset owner, and very excited about my little patito (tito for short). I am a little worried that the breeder I got him from lied when he told me patito is eight weeks old because he seems so small to me...does anyone remember what there puppies wieghed when they first got them?

Also he is a nipper I say ow and give him one of his toys but he doesnt really like any of his toys normally he rejects that and trys to nip me again. Any suggestions?

Yeah both mine nipped. Molly has grown out of it and Winston is on his way. Just be firm and he'll get there.

To answer your other question: I got both mine at 8 weeks old. Molly weighed 8 lbs and Winston was around 10, I think (he's a big boy).
I personally love Kong products. It started with the little rubber chew toy that you can fill with treats or whatever your dog likes. Keeps them occupied for a bit, as they have to work to get to the good stuff.

Now that my babies are older, I buy other Kong toys, as they hold up pretty well. Molly and Winston can destroy the average toy in record time. I even bought them a Kong bed, since Molly destroyed her old bed when she was only a few months old. This new one has survived 2 teething dogs with no problem.

I swear I am not getting kickbacks from Kong, but rather love them a lot. Here's a link to their site: Dog & Cat Toys & Dog Treats - Pet Toys, Dog Chew Toys | KONG Company
Michelle, keep an eye on the website, it seems that just about every toy they have a deal for is a Kong toy! And for half price and free shipping! Love it.
I think I read about them on your blog, actually. I am awaiting 2 orders of Kong toys as we speak. One should be here any day :) Very good deals!
