Ilik X Capar Puppies 3 WEEKS OLD!

The only female (above) is second best in litter on her feet, following firstborn son below. She likes to cuddle, but hangs on for dear life with both legs wrapped tight around an arm! She watches things in her environment the most intently and the longest, especially people and animals. She weighs 6 lbs 10 oz. The last week she gained 1 lb 10 oz, with an average daily weight gain this week of 3.7 oz.
The firstborn son is getting quite nimble on his feet. He is the most agile and the most mobile in the litter. He's also the most wiggly to hold! He has places to go and things to see and isn't eager to be held back from them! ;-> He weighs 6 lbs 8 oz, gained 1 lb 13 oz this week, and has an average daily weight gain this week of 1 lb 13 oz. Look out predators!

Mr. Sack of Potatoes here (heavy-weight!) is the calmest to hold and the last one to accomplish getting up on his rear feet! Although he can now move all over the place, and CAN stand on his feet, he still bottoms out a lot with rear legs straight out at the sides! ;-> This brindle boy weighs 7 lbs 4 oz. He gained 1 lb 14 oz this week and had an average daily weigh gain of 4.3 oz. This guy will probably have the role of bouncer with predators when he grows up!
