The female pup, above, weighs 9 lbs 5 oz at 4 weeks old. She gained 2 lbs 11 oz this week, which makes an average weight gain of 6.1 oz per day. She is happy-go-lucky and enjoyed dipping her feet in a dog-food-dish of ice water today in the 100 degree weather! She and firstborn son are still a bit scared of human feet.
The firstborn son, above, weighs 10 lbs 9 oz. He gained a whopping 4 lbs 1 oz this week. Average weight gain was 9.3 oz per day!!! He says he will take on his brother in a wrestling match any time! This guy likes to find a dark quiet spot in the heat and hole up. I don't blame him! He and his sister are about even in activity level, bouncing around and having fun, when the temps are more normal.
Capar Jr. weighs the most still at 10 lbs 14 oz. He gained 3 lbs 10 oz this week, with the average daily weigh gain being 8.3 oz. Today is the first day he is mostly steady on his rear legs! This guy gets the friendly greeter award for the week. He was also seen dipping feet in the ice-water! He prefers to mostly watch the goings on instead of get into a tussle, but he can't help but join in the play when attacked by the siblings! He is always good-natured about it. He seems more like a wise old man watching over his family at times!
