    Puppy piles! So cute. Must resist the cute. The last picture of the feet is almost zen-like. I could just stare at that for a very long time and maybe even find inner peace. ;) Love the little puppy tails, too. They make me think of otter tails for some reason. Not sure why, but they do.

    I really like taking the super-close-up shots to try and capture these precious moments before the puppies are running around the house, destroying things. :p

    So, today is...
    Day 4
    Puppy 1 (Red):
    · 14.9oz
    · Biggest! Slightly yellow coat. Starting to get pigment.
    Puppy 2 (Yellow):
    · 13.1oz
    · Smallest boy. Whitest coat. Starting to get pigment.
    Puppy 3 (Pink):
    · 11.8oz
    · Most yellow/cream coat. Looks to have a piebald pattern. Hard to say.
    Puppy 4 (Green):
    · 13.7oz
    · Already has all his black pigment on his nose. He was born with a black stripe on his nose, unlike the rest. Coat is fairly bright/white.
    Puppy 5 (Black):
    · 13.2oz
    · Kind of lagging behind, but was always the second smallest male. Has a slightly creamish coat.

    Sleeping puppy pictures! So cute! Based solely on the sleeping pictures I really like Shirogane. His little tongue is sticking out. But I love Kurogane's name the most. :)

    Telling them apart is really difficult. I can tell Suzuishi and Fala apart - Suzu is the whitest and Fala has lady bits... but Seidou, Shirogane, and Kurogane are getting more and more difficult to tell apart on first glance.

    I'm not even 100% certain I have them correct in this line up... but here's hoping!
    I'm a terrible grandma.

    I'm 85% certain that this is Shirogane and Kurogane (since they have the most yellow in their coats).

    I'll do today's update later. :)

    Pupdate! 11 days. They're getting very hard to tell apart sometimes. :(
    I've tentatively matched up some puppies, but they're subject to change.

    Suzuishi (I HOPE.)
    I think he's going to live in Seattle with my sister.
    Suzuishi is very cute, but I feel like he looks like a girl.
    He's very bright-coated and white, but has some yellow/cream on the back of his legs.
    image

    Fala. (For sure.)
    She's going to live in Temecula with a good friend.
    I like Fala a lot. She's very vocal and started very fussy, but getting very sweet.
    She's obviously yellow, compared to the others.
    image

    Seidou. (If my calculations are correct!) @Shikoku
    This guy is really cool and weird. He talks a lot during handling, but never twists or fusses. His coloration is similar to Suzu's.
    image

    Shirogane.......(??? Pretty sure.)
    He almost looks pinto, so it's a bit easier to pick him out from his brothers. He's turning out to be smaller than Suzu (who was initially the smallest). Shiro has a white muzzle and stripe up his head and yellow "eye patches". His back and back legs are yellow, but his front legs and collar are white. Maybe it'll change, but it's only become more obvious.
    image

    Kurogane. (Brad-tested.)
    This guy remains the largest and the easiest to handle. He just always seems content. We'll see how he changes after they're up and about.

    Kurogane reminds me of the Husky/Somoyed we had once upon a time. Mr. Joshua (we named him after Gary Bussey's character in Lethal Weapon because of his white fur and extremely confident attitude.) He was the size of a husky but all white like a samoyed....and a big pushy brat. He was quite the attention whore.

    This litter is so cute!

    Thank you, Gen. :(

    Seidou passed away a little before 9:30 tonight. He'd been hospitalized since around 4:00am for pneumonia and had bounced up and down all day, but at 8:30, the vet on his case called and told me that his heart had stopped twice and he was no longer really breathing on his own. I went to visit him and made the call to let him go. Everyone at the hospital was fantastic and gave him the best shot he could have, but it was just too much for him.

    I'm keeping an eye on the other pups. Shiro has been pretty lazy today and he's normally a psycho, so I'm a little worried about him, but he's still eating and drinking, so I think he'll be alright. They were checked by their normal vet as soon as they opened and got a mostly clear bill of health but some preventative antibiotics to go home with.

    They keep getting cuter! Shiro is still my favorite for his personality but I really like Kuro's overall look <3

    Oh my gosh! Shirogane wearing a shirt! That is so cute! They are all cute, but Shirogane may be pulling to the lead. I'm glad they're all doing well. :)

    Well, Shirogane's owner is fairly active on the forum and Fala is going to be staying with me for a while so I can watch her grow and mature a bit. I believe Kurogane's owner is on the forum as well...

    Kuro is going to his new home early tomorrow morning! His new name is going to be "Hakuro" and he's going to California to hunt boar! :)

    I really like his head and coat best in the litter. He's also got a very fun, energetic temperament.

    I haven't been on here in a while but I will posting updates of Kuro and his growth and hunting progress. We'll pick him up this afternoon. Thanks @crispy for all her help and giving me time to convince the wife to get another puppy.

    @Mike283 I really look forward to hearing some of his hunting stories! Please keep us informed on how his training goes. Ive gotten into boar hunting with my Kai over the past year and have been considering one day getting a Kishu. Hunting has been put on hold as we have moved into a boar less state :(

    @navydog I will post updates on here, once I figure out how to post pictures again since Flickr changed. We picked him up yesterday and he's an awesome little monster. My Kai Toshi really likes him and they wrestle all the time. We are working on his Pottie training and on what to chew and what not to chew. He jumps and latches into everything, especially toshi. I'm thinking he will be like his dad and want to catch a bit. Going to get him some much needed chewing toys and antlers in a little bit today. If anyone can let me know the easiest way to post pics on here I'd appreciate it.

    @Mike283 Congratulations on Hakurou! I'm glad you'll be posting more about him as he grows. :)

    @Crispy So now I want to know who is getting Shirogane. The curiosity is eating me. Eating me, I say. And I'm glad you'll be keeping Fala for a while. She's a cutie.

    @Crispy I'm secretly hoping you keep Fala here on the east coast so there's more chance in her and Yucca meeting. I think their sassiness would be fun together

    Hakurou's doing well with potty training and Toshi is doing a grate job helping to keep him on track

    Look at his happy face! I miss him.

    Shirogane flies on Wednesday. Everyone is going to their new lives! Now I get to watch how they grow. :)

    @NavyDog - It has been decided that Fala (now Fionna) is going to my sister in Seattle. This will be her first dog, but she's been interested in Kishu for a little while. She was originally going to get one of the boys, but has now opened up to little miss Fionna.

    She's in Seattle, so all the pups will be on the west coast... but I know they're all going to be in great hands.

    Good luck to Shirogane on his flight on Wednesday. I want to say I know where he is going, but I probably don't.

    And Seattle isn't too far from me. Maybe I will need to puppy stalk Fionna once, lol. That wouldn't be too creepy, right?

    I'm hoping to hand-deliver her in the winter sometime, @WhoBitMe - maybe we can get a PNW NK meetup going! :P
