Mürekkep (Kepi for short) means ink in Turkish, to reflect her very dark face. She is the only one in the litter still available at 8 weeks old. She weighs 20 lbs, 12 oz. The vet says she is going to be a very large girl. (Previously she was known as the medium-brown female with a white tip tail. Also known now as the new heavy-weight female in the litter.)
The medium-brown female with the all dark tail is seen here with her sire. She is now working in Whitefish, Montana with her sister 3-spot. She was still the lightest weight female in the litter at 15 lbs, 0 oz on her 8 week birthday.
The lightest color female was a bit scared in this picture, as she had just had her first experience with the hotwire. She is such a beauty to behold in the pasture, though, as she typically holds herself so beautifully (when the camera is not out). When the camera appears, she is mostly a blur of light fawn. Her owners are almost on their way to take her home to the sheep and some excellent, older, canine, livestock guard dog teachers. She weighs 17 lbs, 8 oz.
