Qwill's page

Qwilleran von Adlerhorst, a Bernese Mountain Dog, was born on 12 October 1997 in Fairfax, Virginia. He provided a lot of fun times during his puppy days! His behavior improved as he grew up (see Qwill Grows Up), but we like to remember his puppyhood that gave us so many laughs and helped us redecorate.

Here are some photos of our new puppy, Qwilleran, at 8 weeks and 1 day. He weighed 17 pounds, 7 ounces at the time. This was his first time in our kitchen.

Qwilleran and toilet paper
We came home from the theater on 24 April 98 and discovered a paper trail that led straight to the culprit (19 weeks old).
