It would seem that several of the puppies may have blue eyes. How exciting! There are a couple of distant relatives with blue eyes, but most typically, Hedlunds have brown eyes. It will be amazing to see these pups as big adults with blue eyes, especially the boys if they end up as big as their papa at 75lb- 80lb. "Honey" is thriving after a scary start to her little life. We were so determined not to lose her and again, with many thanks to our dear friends, Kim and Kelly Berg, for helping save her. She is full of energy, very playful and attentive. Honey is quite assertive and is usually the first to try something new. She is a very smart pup. Grayvy is really quite similar to Honey in personality and in looks. Both girls are so pretty. Grayvy has a very unique look about her and like Honey, is so attentive and interacts well. Fruitcake and Pear are very mellow girlies who tend to let Honey and Grayvy steal the show, however, these two cuties are not just stunning and so sweet, but becoming very affectionate and cuddly. Fruitcake is coming out of her little shell and is very fun to play with. Pear is beautiful with her silver/blue-gray coat and contrasting white markings. She is a very big girl. TJ continues to be 'one on his own'... loves to play and interact but also quite happy doing his own thing. He has a huge silver/blue-gray coat, now lighter in color than Pear's. He has the sweetest face and was the biggest puppy but now perhaps, he is lighter than Pepper and Pear. TJ is such a gorgeous looking puppy and loves to wriggle and roll about rather than lie still for a belly rub. Pepper is huge and so pretty like Honey and Grayvy. He is very quiet, very okay with his own company, but most recently, he is becoming so very loving and snuggly. He is just gorgeous to look at. Then there is Wishbone... sent from heaven, he is a sweet sweet little boy that captures the attention of anyone who meets him. An old spirit and a special little boy.
They all have great coats and are a little different than each other's. TJ has the thickest and maybe the longest followed by Pear. Honey, Grayvy and Pepper look similar in color and markings to the Daisy/Nellie litter that Kim Fitzgerald from mush Knik bred 3 years ago. Fruitcake is inbetween them all in looks and coat color, another good sized female though. Wishbone looks like Rosie's brother Phoenix when he was a puppy and has a shorter more buff colored coat with a white bar and mask and wonderful eye markings.
Honey was first in the food bowl whilst Wishbone was the first to discover toys. We think Pear, Wishbone and TJ may be blue eyed. Not sure on the others just yet. They were very active from being tiny and were up on the feet so quickly. So far none have ventured out of the whelping box yet... though soon, they'll make their transition to their outdoor kennel, at least during the daytime.
