Firstborn son (above and below) weighed 27 lbs 14 oz at 8 weeks old! He is now in Ontario, CANADA, joining the Shepherds Rest darkest female puppy from the Sirin X Duman litter.
Capar Jr. flew to Tennessee just prior to the heatwave, so left a few days before 8 weeks old due to needing to avoid the heat. The airport he flew into was not serviced by Continental Airlines (air-conditioned facilities), so special arrangements had to be made with Delta to ensure he would not fly through any hot areas. The temperature embargo that most airlines have in effect means that animals cannot fly if the temperature is likely to be at or above 85 degrees at any connection, including the destination, at their anticipated arrival time! When Capar Jr. left, he was 24 lbs 0 oz. I do not have an exact 8 week old weight for him.
