Here are the little tennis racquets at one year old. I have an unpublished half-finished blog showing these puppies going off to their new homes with comparison photos at about 14 weeks old. However, as I didn't manage to find my way clear to finishing and posting that one, you can have those too for a nice little comparison of 2 months, almost-4 months and 12 months old.
The first puppy out the door back then was Loki, which was fitting considering he was going only 20 minutes up the road, but I'm posting in birth order, as I normally do, so first up is Siinto who was already 11 weeks old before he left because his new owners, Michaela & Chris, had one or two things to do before picking him up. Like getting married for one. And like moving house for another. You can see he was already considerably bigger and more bear-like.
