Dark males are on either side of middle female. Pup on right is a little (big?!) Capar Junior. His brindle markings are able to be seen easier now than at birth. At this age he looks like a little clone of his sire!
The female pup is quite a big girl. She weighed 31.2 oz at 3 days old, while the firstborn son (left) weighed 27.5, and the brindle son weighed 33.8. But with no competition for the milk, each pup can easily get their fill. The firstborn son is still very large compared to the other Sirin X Duman litter at that age (now 3 weeks old).
Ilik is being a good mother. She rarely leaves the whelping box at this stage. Her job right now is cleaning the puppies up, which is no easy task since they are eating all the time! Ilik allows the puppies to be handled and weighed every day, but she gets uneasy if a puppy is away from her for too long, and she watches what is happening with each puppy with eagle eyes! If she didn't like what was happening, I've no doubt that she would come pick up the puppy and take it back with her into the whelping box!
