Shepherds Rest Imports Brindle Sisters

Shepherds Rest announces the arrival of:
Yayla and Yağmur,

Yayla is a bit lighter brindle with more white on the chest, while Yağmur is somewhat of a darker brindle with less white on the chest.
Yağmur is pronounced YAH moor (the g is silent).
Yayla weighs 29.5 lbs.  Yağmur weighs 28.0 lbs.
Both are healthy, happy, and full of puppy energy.
Fingers crossed for good hips on the OFA prelims in about 3 months.
Yayla is more bold in behavior, while Yağmur is more laid back.
These girls have the softest fur and love to cuddle up for very long hugs, content to be held as long as possible, melting like butter across your lap.
Yayla means highlands, in Turkish.  Yağmur means rain.
Whose tail?!

Birnur X Duman Puppies 6 Weeks Old

Fawn male above weighs 15 lbs 11 oz at 6 weeks.

Female above weighs 15 lbs 1 oz.

Grey fawn male above weighs 15 lbs 8 oz.

Pups take turns being the pouncer or the pouncee.  Check out mom in the background, wondering why she had to be on the outside of the puppy area.
She'd have her nose in my face and in the camera if I tried to take pics with her in the same area!  Then when I tried to put her back with the pups, she was in the, "No way, I need a break from the kids!" mood.
