Happy One Year Old Birthday, Fire Litter!

We still think of the Fire Litter as puppies, but truth be told.. they are not! Olivia and Nacho’s eleven puppies graduate to the SP Kennel Yearling Class this week.

We took photographs of the kids earlier this week. Out of the 556 pictures we took, we hope that we got 11 good ones! We'll let you decide.

Happy Birthday fire pups! All of them are gorgeous, but I admit my partiality towards the blue eyed ones. What's most interesting is to see how many had their ears pop up, although Hotshot's and Violet's ears look like they actually go more "floppy". Thanks for the yearling update.

Absolutely beautiful...everyone with their own characteristics shining through!

OMG!!! How big those pups are!!! They were beautiful at 3 months, and still beautiful, healthy and spunky at a year old!!!
Awesome, Thanks for the post!!!

Interesting that the pups who look more like Olivia got her blue eyes. None of the more Nacho-looking pups got blue eyes. Wonder how those marking/eye color genes are associated. Doesn't really matter they're all gorgeous.

Happy Birthday fire litter! They are beautiful as adults and still have the individual markings they had as pups.
