July - the Birthday Month

The middle of July is a popular birthday time for SP Kennel.

The Olympics turned ONE on July 24th. Congrats to our youngsters: Gold, Prata and Bronze. These three are all legs, attitude and energy right now. Prata and Gold antagonize each other constantly - what do you expect from our youth - and Bronze is the cuddly, sweetheart.


L-R: Gold; Prata; Bronze

The Five Pups turned THREE on July 15th. They had a rough start as infants but they are dynamite group now. Rodney, Ginger and Five live on one of the wooden raised platforms due to their 'rock chewing' tendencies. Ernie and Scooby live in the main yard. Here is the platform with (left to right) Ginger, Rodney, Spark and Five. (Izzy is photo bombing under Ginger's tail.)


Note: Five's ugly dog house! Dog house pressure washing and painting chores don't start until mid September."

The Fire Litter are FOUR as of July 21st. These core dogs are ready to start the Mushing Season: Amber, Chena, Commando, Daisy, Nomex, Spark, Tinder, Torch and Violet. Tinder’s sponsor Marilyn was at SP Kennel on his birthday and we celebrated with a dog walk (below).

The Five (Surfivers) and the Olympic litters are special faves of mine and it is a huge thrill to see them grow up and become special dogs. I hope to see the Five especially doing more great things this season. As soon as the fandom opens, I'll be jumping in to support my faves--one in each of the past four litters. It is still summer but fall is coming! Thanks for sharing the birthday kids with us.
