Gracie was Parker's midwife, and named him after Peter Parker. He's been one of the biggest puppies throughout their (nearly) 8 weeks of life. He's on the mellow side of this litter's median. He's affectionate and calm but definitely playful. Check out his first walk.
Like most black dogs he shines brown in the light and gets hot in the sun. Then he curls up with the garden hose for a nap.
Parker loves to play with humans, Mabel and his siblings. He's laid-back and when he needs something, finds one of us and earnestly stares, whimpers once, and we can usually tell if he's hot, hungry or tired. (Like me, these puppies often need help falling asleep, like someone to cuddle with.) He can also multitask - cuddle and play at the same time:
