The puppies have faces - officially!

Okay, the black (seal) pup is the male and will be called Nikki. The grey one is the girl and will be called Lupa. Each are 4 weeks in these pics, but Lupa is actually 5 weeks now.

Hi Barkingdog, yes we got the black male we wanted. Malamutes do not have blue eyes, just the huskies do (or crosses), blue eyes in a malamute is considered a flaw. I think Nikki's eyes just look blue because of the flash, they don't look it in the other pics we have. We're so happy to finally know which ones are going to be ours!

DD, they're just GORGEOUS!!!
I'm so glad you got the dark male you wanted
I can't wait to watch them grow up. Shaun and I won't have any more puppies, so I will be living vicariously through you

As for the blue eyes, all puppies have blue eyes at that age. And DD is right, Mals don't have blue eyes. Some breeders will tell you it's a "flaw" if they do, but that isn't true either hehe. If a Mal has blue eyes, it's not a purebred. A lot of breeders will breed both Huskies and Mals, and once in awhile an "oops" will happen and they end up with blue eyes
Or there has been Husky introduced to the bloodline somewhere along the way, which could even stem from generations back.

I love them both and think you need to post many more pics, DD!!

That is great you got the puppy you wanted. I was wondering about the blue eyes because Nikki's eyes did look blue . I think is so exciting having two beautiful puppies , congratulation on your new family!

DD, they are just too cute for words! LOL. Especially Lupa in that photo. Looks like some little stuffed toy you could sit on your bed for decoration. Very sweet.

Yes I can't wait for some cuddle time. Never will I buy dogs from out of town again! It sucks....

Lupa is apparently very outgoing and adventurous. The breeder says she's the first to go out every day and explore! Yay for Lupa! No new pics of Nikki yet though. She's 5 weeks here.

She's such a pretty, soft colour, DD. It's so right too that a Malamute puppy is sitting there next to snow while my cattle dog is coming here to a dustbowl and hot weather. I'm not long in from watering 90% of the garden seeing it could reach 41C today, just don't know how I'm going to fit in looking after a pup. LOL.

Nikki and Lupa are beautiful DD.

Congratulations and I too would be jumping out of my skin waiting for them to come home.

You know how we are about puppy pictures and a photo of the day would be just fine with me. Well maybe you could keep us updated with weekly photo threads but it must be for at least one year!

I can cope with 41C, DD, especially if it is dry heat, but add gale force winds and that freaks me out a bit. Such bad fire weather. Just hope the little guy can manage the heat, he is coming from the top of the dividing range where it is cool. Just know that you are feeling as frustrated as I am right now. Bring on the day when our pups can arrive, hey?

I am totally in love with Lupa! What a pretty pup she is. You'll have no trouble socialising that pair, DD, everyone will want to pat and cuddle them.

Thanks all, Miss Lupa is very photogenic isn't she (if I say so myself). Her breeder is very good at sending pics, Nikki's breeder doesn't send so many so obviously doesn't take the time to get really good ones. I think he's going to be pretty cute but I agree that right now Lupa is the looker! (Don't tell Nikki I said that K.) I think the breeder may have nailed her name with Moonsnoe's Diva of Coquitlam I'm curious as to how much of her facial markings will stay and how much of them will fade out as she ages, her dam has an open face (no mask) and Lupa's is very light, I hope it doesn't totally fade away. I think Nikki may have thicker hair eventually. I can't wait to cuddle both of them though!

They're totally scrumptious, DD!!! The only good thing about having two weeks of no computer was coming back to all the updates and the lovely pics!! You must be so impatient!! I'm doing the happy dance for you!
