Shasta used to get them after every meal when she was a baby, but she's outgrown it now.

Thank you, I was just worried. I was on google too, and people said the same thing... that its a puppy thing... something about growing at a fast rate, and so the muscles spasm. :)

I asked my vet about it...she said the same thing, very common in puppies. I used to tease my daughter about this too, she always got hiccups when going through a growth spurt! Weird.

redundant but I'll say it again.... completey normal. Any dog of any breed we've ever had always had hiccups like crazy as a puppy. My husband always says it's a growth spurt which I know is an old wives tale but I just go with it and they generally grow out of it when they are older and done growing by leaps and bounds like they do now.
