Ilik's Male Puppies 3 Weeks Old

Pinto boy here is a real beefy guy. He seems heaviest and largest in the litter, although the boy below does have him beat by a couple ounces. Pinto boy weighs 6 lbs, 1 ounce today. He was first one to climb out of the litter box, and seems to be developmentally ahead of the other puppies at this point. He was first to make eye contact and interested in people.
Darkest boy here is the heaviest in the litter, 6 lbs, 3 oz, but today was the least motivated to try to stand. Turns out he was the ONLY puppy who would not get on his feet while outside. Most of the puppies are squinting because it's their first time in the sunshine. They crawl out of the whelping box in the barn stall but have not yet ventured outside the barn stall, even though the door is open now.
We call this sweet boy, Sakar, the Turkish name for having a white spot on the forehead. He is a quite the cuddle puppy. Hold him to your chest and he will nuzzle right up under your chin and relax! He is 5 lbs, 4 oz.
Lil-Bit'O-White-Nose boy was quite intent at coming to me for safety in the big wide outside world. I had to keep backing up! This guy is quite agile for just barely being out of the squirmy tadpole stage! He is 6 lbs, 0 oz.

I have pictures of Ilik, Duman and the pups up in my office area. I can't tell you how many folks have inquired about what kind of dog. Everyone is captivated by the Anatolian story - they return for more information. I have sent them all links to you web site.
