Portrait Sneak Peek!

The dog portraits are complete and we are in the process of updating the Dog and Puppy pages with their new glam shots. This will take a few days so watch this space.

In the meantime we thought you would enjoy a sneak peek at some of them.

Jeanne (right, with Ginger) has managed to capture some real personality in the shots due, I believe, to how well she knows our dogs. I personally love Quito's glam shot as it shows her calm intensity along with her pretty face; and check out Pepe - he's ready to show us his stuff this season!

It's hard to pick a favourite of the puppy pics but look at how laid back and relaxed Rodney is in front of the camera.

L-R: Calmly intense Quito; Pepe rearing to go; Rodney relaxes

We are especially excited for you to see the latest pictures of our yearling class. These are the dogs you will notice the most change from their last season's pictures. Take a look at these comparisons from this time last year and see how handsome and grown up these boys are now!

Of course, with any photoshoot there are always out-takes!

Thanks again to Jeanne Schnackenberg for sharing her incredible talent with us!

Love the outtakes! It's so interesting to see how much darker Nomex and Commando have gotten over the past year and how perky Champ's ears are now. Thanks for having a dog portrait day - looking forward to the unveiling. Great work Jeanne.

I love Biscuit's pic. He looks so youthful and happy.

Yikes, BEEMER's outtake, looks like he's auditioning for the part of Old Yeller, move over Spike! I'm glad Jeanine doesn't frighten easily.

Thanks so much for the early snaps - if the portrait of Chena is any example, the year as a "puppy" has done a few things:

1. First, she now is showing her sense of humor, giving a little smile;
2. Second, her blue eyes still say "Mommy Olivia" but her growth and development says..."Daddy Nacho" and
3. Most of all, she looks HAPPY (not the dog) and eager!!!

Aww--great pix and a wonderful sneak peak. BTW I am totally jealous of Jeanne getting to hold Ginger. I am just in love with that puppy! She is looking so grown up already since August.
