Sirin Puppies 7 Weeks Old
Medium-color dark-tail girl is still the light-weight of the litter at 12 lbs, 4 oz, but she has spunk! This gal definitely has a sense of humor too! She and the light-colored female below are similar in these ways, and both are quick and agile. Girl above had an average weight gain of 6.67 oz this week. But don't let that fool you. Some days she was right up there with the rest at the 8 and 9 oz gain in one day!

Ilik's Female Puppies 4 Weeks Old
The puppies are all still quite new at being on their feet and are very easily toppled over. They are play-fighting, growling, barking, whining, but mostly are content and quiet. They are paying close attention to the chickens, goats, and dogs adjacent to them, but aren't seeing an awfully long distance away yet, although they can hear sounds from quite a distance and look like they are trying to see where it came from. They are still in the adjoining inside and outside barn stalls, with the door left open to the outside overnights now. They also spend some time exploring the basketball court and yards. Their father spends much of his time lying as close as he can get to this litter of puppies, with his long coat sticking through the fence into the puppy area.

Sirin Puppies 6 Weeks Old
In the preliminary temperament testing, the darkest girl (above) had a funny reaction to the opening of the umbrella (measuring startle response to strange object). She looked at it, went toward it, then crawled under it and laid down!
