Updated Racer and Yearling Info

The last two days at the kennel we have had our eyes focused on nothing other than our Mac laptops. Every dog needed a website update: photo, race info and personal profile. We didn't stop until we were done. Today with bleeding eyeballs, we have the Racers and Yearlings COMPLETE.

Check out the Dog Page.

We have also had a few revelations this past week. As Jeanne spent hours taking one portrait after another, she said "You know Aliy, some of your dogs look very similar." I thought... Really?!? What is she talking about? I've always thought that our dogs were pretty individual. Then I looked at the photos! I was wrong!

See if you can tell who they are without cheating!

Thank goodness there are still a few stand outs in the bunch!

First off....your photographer did a great job....wow...they all looks so awesome! Then I took the challenge, and failed miserably!! Just yesterday I was bragging that I knew em all by name....those yearlings threw me off my game!! I pegged Olivia and Nacho and of course the bottom 3.... gotta love the stand outs! Yep, I got some work to do to relearn the Team Members!!! The updated pictures are outstanding, and the yearlings look so mature!!

I think the one in the middle of the second row is Boondocks, but that's all I've got.

Amazing portraits! Kudos to the photographer!!! I think in the bottom row are, Waylon (right), Schmoe (middle) and one of last year pups. The top row has young ones. They look very much like Olivia, but they look young and still do not have Olivia's 'focused' look in their eyes.
At ant rate, they are ALL beautiful!!!!
You guys are great! You love your dogs more than words can say.
Thanks for sharing!!! :)

Oh shut!!! Olivia WAS in the picture!!! I got confused by her 'youthful appearance' :)

Thanks for these great new glam pics of the team! I am pleased that we correctly identified Junior among the new pics. She is indeed the spitting image of her gorgeous momma, with the sparkle and big ears of her handsome daddy. On behalf of the entire family, we wish Aliy and Allen a great racing season. --Cliff Michel and Family

Thanks so much for all your overtime work in getting all the fabulous pictures up. All the dogs are gorgeous. I got five out of the nine but really missed badly on the others. May S P Kennel be very successful this racing season.
