Q-puppy portraits

Quick boy

So, the other pictures I took this past weekend were of the puppies. So, at 5 days old, I present to you the very healthy and sleek Q-pups!

Who knows what names they will end up with--Q is a hard one!

However, the boy's speed at getting up and scootching across the whelping box in the first hours of his life earned him the early nickname of Quick.

He has the most beautiful red markings coming through on his legs.
Make sure you get my good side!
The bigger bicolor girl is already gorgeous. She has such a handsome head and sleek body. Also, she has a bit of an opinion on, well, everything! I am going to call her "Quarrel"...

Quarrel--bicolor girl

The world should try harder to accommodate me!
Maybe my name should be "Querulous"?

And, as an editor, I think it's essential to have a Query, so I will give the sable girl this nickname. Right now she looks a lot like a plump otter baby. She was the smallest pup at birth (14 ounces) with the smaller bicolor girl being the next smallest at just under 16 ounces. She is pretty talkative and grunts and groans at being handled.

I object to the lack of milk!
Such a sleek girl, I love her little mask. :)

I've always been a fan of the name Quest, so I will tentatively call the small bicolor girl by this name. You can see her small chest blaze--this will shrink to just a small spot by the time she's an adult

She was very good at posing for her profile shots...

Get this side too!

I will, of course, be taking LOTS of pictures as they mature. I generally update the puppy gallery every weekend, so follow along there if you like!
