Sirin X Duman Female Puppies SIX WEEKS OLD!

Here is the lightest-color of coat in the litter, above. This is the white-foot female. This sweet girl has a very similar personality to her fawn brother. She loves to play with her siblings but is not the initiator, usually. She has fabulous eye contact with people. She weighed 11 lbs 14 oz at 6 weeks old. (I'm a couple days behind in pictures!) She gained 2 lbs 15 oz this past week, almost one pound more than last week's weight gain. This week her average daily weight gain is 6.7 ounces.
This is white toes female, also one of the two lighter coat color females. This girl is comfortable with her littermates and without. It's not unusual for her to go off to take a nap by herself, comfortable with her environment, and then join in the puppy play later. She weighed 11 lbs 8 oz at 6 weeks. Her weight gain this week was 3 lbs 3 oz. Her average daily weight gain this week was 7.3 oz.
Double-dew claw female was quite the happy camper during the photo session Look at that smile! Actually, I think she was plotting her next move against a sibling rival!!! She and her dark sister below are both usually the first two puppies to meet and greet visitors. Both are happy-go-lucky. Double-dew girl (above) weighed 12 lbs 0 oz at 6 weeks. She gained 3 lbs 9 oz this week, and has an average daily weight gain of 8.1 oz.
Darkest female continues to lighten in her body color, as does her sister above. She had been involved in quite the wrestling match with siblings and had just plopped down in the grass when this picture was taken, as if saying, "Hmmm." Although she's looking at the camera, she is keenly aware of where her siblings are and maybe even what her net move will be! The seriousness of those eyes is probably a sign of the internal battle plan she's cooking up!!! ;-> She weighed 11 lbs 8 oz at 6 weeks. This week she gained 3 lbs 1 oz. Her average daily weight gain was 7.0 oz.

so fun - can almost feel their little emotions with the playing pics and the lip curls and swats...
