Ilik X Capar Puppies 7 WEEKS OLD!

Well, these puppies are now 8 weeks old and gone to their homes, but for the sake of documentation and those following the litter with interest, I'll go back and give weights and info for the 7 week point. In these pics, puppies are 6 weeks old because my computer (or the Picasa program I use for photos) deleted several folders when my computer ran out of space. The important thing here is the weights and info on the puppies at 7 weeks!
The female loves the cool spot behind the water trough, and in fact, loves to get her feet wet. Just prior to leaving for her travels to her new home, she was spotted stepping her front feet into the water trough, then hauling her back feet in also, one at a time, as the trough sides are higher than her tummy! At 7 weeks, she weighed 17 lbs 11 oz.
Firstborn son above weighed 22 lbs 8 oz at 7 weeks. He has enormous paws that even the vet and the Continental Cargo people exclaimed about! A very sweet boy! He weighed in at 1 oz more than his brother below.
Capar Jr. weighed 22 lbs 7 oz at 7 weeks old. He loves to guard his goats and is often seen standing around them rather than playing with the other puppies! He is quite attentive to whatever is going on!

thank you for putting these up as well - even though my special boy is enduring the heat and humidity here in southern Ontario... he is doing well - the two pups love the diggin zone and the "pit" has gotten quite a bit larger since their arrival - the Ibizans enjoy them... well.... 10 yr old Ankhesanamn - aka "Khes" says... I am not your mom!!! - 3 yr old Felai-Ezra likes having someone trying to run around after her!!!!!
the Azawakhs on the other hand... nope, no go on fun there!
