Well... I have to admit that I have fallen completely in love with Paika and Moose's puppies. This is a good looking bunch - all their coats are perfect and it looks like our plan of mating Paika (who is homozygous for the F gene) to Moose (who is smooth out of wires and homozygous recessive ff) has worked very well. This is one of the most uniform litters we have ever had and all five puppies will have perfect wirehaired coats. Pups' heads are very nice and strong with good pigmentation of eyes. They have all their teeth, and the males have their testicles. No umbilical hernias. There is a range of dispositions here with the female being probably most feisty and yellow male most easy going. We will be learning a lot about the pups in the next few weeks. Today they went for an hour long ride in the country.
