Question Is this normal

Ok have another question about Lily. Usually with my pups at her age I am taking them out every half an hour or so to go potty and they will go. Well, Lily will only go potty every three hours or so when taken out. She hasn't had an accident in the house yet (two in her crate). So she is not going anywhere else, just outside. I'll take her out and play with her like twenty minutes or so but she just doesn't go. I tell her "go potty" and she just jumps around. Are 3 month olds suppose to be able to hold their bladder like this? Even after she drinks a lot of water she'll still hold it for hours at a time. It's just wierd because I've never had a puppy do this before, it's sort of the opposite of the usual taking them out every half an hour.

wow...sounds like you are very lucky this time. I was up to every 3 or 4 hours for both my pups at that age. she may need to go out sooner once her appetite goes into overdrive! she is a real beauty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! with my pups, I saw their particular 'pattern' within the first 2 weeks. she sounds normal to me.

ok, good. I was thinking maybe once she started eating regularly and playing more she'd have to go out more too. Thank you for her compliment.

I don't know, pups are so different the first few days. Tips didn't have any accident at all then he started after 3 days. I think that it will probably change once she's more accustomed to the house.

she probably will start going more in a few days. I FINALLY got her to eat. She ate about a 3/4 cup of just the food from the breeder with a little bit of canned food (Eagle Pack).

Eagle Pack seems to do the trick. We had to put some in Jake's food too. He loves it.
