Kepi X Gunner Puppies One Week Old

This litter consists of large and super-large puppies.  No surprise!  Their sire is Gunner and paternal grandparents are imports Capar and Nazli!  Compare puppy weights to previous Shepherds Rest litters in previous blog posts (see archives on left of blog)!  All puppies in this litter are very healthy and strong.  Eyes and ears will open this week!  One more week and puppies will be able to regulate their own body temperature.  All have strong vocal cords but are usually quiet and calm, as all are well fed and mother Kepi is supplying plenty of milk and TLC!
