Just had to share this latest finished painting by artist Debra Canale (and mom to our whippet pup "Pip" - HT Auric Goldfinger):
We've always loved this photo of Jett & Fermi, and the painting really captures their silly expressions and playful, goofy, hound-dog nature of whippets:
Sounds like Debra plans to enter the painting in the Boulder Art Exhibit called "Raining Cats & Dogs" and will be on display July 8th - 29th.
For those of you who've been to the Front Range K9 Academy training studio lately, you may remember seeing the near-life-sized painting of Jen's collie, Siobhan, that Debra did for us last year after we lost Siobhan to a rattlesnake bite. She's also done other great paintings of our whippets Polliwog and Lychee. Here's our beloved Siobhan:
First up, we've got Bond litter birthday girl, Zoe (HT Zoe Nightshade) turning a year old...this petite girl still looks just like her mom, Lychee - and is apparently loves to sleep upside down like her dad, Chewy:
And how about some fun shots of Phinley (HT Delbert Grady) from the 09/01/2015 Halloween litter: Looks like he's enjoying the company of his giant friends, and is quite a snuggler:
And how about this great shot of Rohan (HT Jules Winnfield), from our 2013 Pulp Fiction litter - 'hiding' from the squirrels....He says, "be vewy, vewy qwiet...we are hunting squirrels" in his Elmer Fudd jacket from Winston's Winter Wear!
First off, we've got Happy One-Year Birthday wishes for our Bond Litters 1 & 2 - born May 8 & 9, 2015. Pics have already started rolling in of the birthday pups:
First up, we've got Isla (HT Kissy Suzuki) in a great montage of shots. We can see aspects of both her daddy Chewy and her mama Lychee in her:
Next up, we've got a great 1 year shot of Chamois (HT Dr. No), snuggling with the whole family - he's on the far right, looking just like his dad, Johnson:
And how about Hugo (HT Hugo Drax), partying pretty hard:
Next up - birthday girl, Sunni (HT Domino Vitali)...who rarely holds still for the camera - just like her mom, Lychee!
Next up, we've got another birthday party girl, Miso (HT Xenia Onatopp):
Not to be outdone by all these May Birthday babies - we've also got an April 13 Birthday Boy, Tau (HT Tau Neutrino) - Miso's 'big brother' having his own celebration. Tau and his litter - The Quantum pups, our very first litter at Horsetooth turned 6 this year:
Next up, we've got a non-birthday pupdate on Indy (HT Herbert West) and Roxy (HT Stevie Wayne):
"All sacked out" - Roxy, Indy, and buddy Zoe.
Next we've got a couple of great shots of Sceri (HT Sceri Monkey Sesame Puff) and Twiggy (HT Twix):
And last, but not least, we've got some great shots of Waffle (HT Hot Toddy), Wilco (HT Rigatoni Sorrentino), and E. Buzz (HT E. Buzz):
"Red Whippets Rule!"
As always, thanks a bunch to all of our puppy owners for the great updates & pics. So fun to catch up with our pups!
