Ilik's Female Puppies 6 Weeks Old

Pinto girl was in a frolicking mood at picture time! She now weighs 11 lbs 13 oz. Even though she is small now (compared to the rest of the litter), it is no indication of how large she will be as an adult. She gained 2 to 12 oz a day on different days this week. She and all her siblings below are now outside all the time, and their mother takes long breaks from them in another pasture during the day.
Ilik-face has 2 photos here, both above and below. She likes the green ball better than the rest of the litter, and was having fun pouncing on it and shaking it. But her attention didn't last long. She can sit and watch the goats for very long periods of time, however! She weighs 15 lbs, 6 oz, and had daily weight gains of 6 to 11 oz this week.

This sweet white-nosed girl is only getting sweeter! She seems to elicit the snatch up and cuddle response in humans! She weighs 14 lbs, 13 oz, and gained 5 to 14 oz on different days this week. She followed her sister above around and watched her play with the ball during picture-taking time. The puppies are all getting speedy and agile enough now to actually be spending time with goats in the same pasture, so stay tuned for puppy/goat photos coming soon!

All of the puppies are so wonderful! Their great personalities really shine in the photos. Good breeding shows. But it would be my boy peeing during a photo shoot. Doug thought that was really funny! -- Kristi
