Today I can see some changes going on with the puppies. I tried using something to focus their attention on. (They really like peanut butter!). Their rears seem to be solidifying a bit and the pups are standing fairly straight as can be seen from behind.
Looking good here...^
A bit too widely spread but still nice and straight...^
Although Nod is leaning, his rear is still fairly straight...^
Fronts, however are a different story. Right now the pups are still unsure of what is happening although they did like the bait. But are still trying to hang on to the towel underneath them and thereby making their fronts appear quite easty/westy. Which would not be totally unheard of at this age but it is not as bad as it looks. For obvious reasons those photos are not shown here.
Faces are of course still cute and the pups are carrying their ears well for the most part.
Blynken looks a bit like Whoopi, who is shown in the background trying to steal some cheese!
Trying to stack we are still having some degree of difficulty but here are those pics.
It is interesting to see the puppies change from week to week. Last week I was really liking the pics of Nod. He just seemed to show the best top line at that time. This week I am really liking Wynken best as her pic shows a better top line and tail set than last week.
I think my overall fav is still Blynken. Her pics do not do her justice as she stands solid on all 4 legs when standing on her own. She has a nice, clean pretty neck. I like her forechest and the way she stands solid on her front, with her feet underneath her shoulders as they should be.
All three pups have their attributes and I expect to see more change as we go into the next 2 - 3 weeks. Next week is the BAER hearing test and I am looking forward to that. All 3 pups do hear but an official confirmation of that fact is always welcome!
More news and pics next week. Hope to see you then!
