Happy 6th Birthday Kyrie/Leos!

Happy sixth birthday to all of the Kyrie/Leo pups! We can't believe it's been six years. We visited Jax back in February and snapped this photo. He still remembers me even though we hadn't been down to visit for a couple of years! He's still a sweetheart like his daddy Leo. :)

Saber's owner Jeff sent me a photo taken this winter. Thanks Jeff! Saber is doing great and is every bit as handsome as we remember him. :)

Still waiting on an Astra photo... Thanks for reading!

Jax at Three Years!

Mark and Ruth sent us some new shots of Jax the other day. As Mark put it, "It's hot out, so you aren't going to see a photo without a LOT of tongue in it!"

Though Jax was our smallest puppy, he has grown up to be huge, over 110 lbs like his brother Saber. Jax is a brown sable plush whose coloring is a lot like his mom Kyrie, only in a long coat! He loves to sit in front of his floor fan to beat the heat, and takes pack walks with his family every morning (including "sisters" Cassie and Trixie). He adores his blue ball toy. Jax's ears did not want to go up on their own but his family loves his goofy, lovable "look" and decided not to brace them. :) In temperament he is very much a soft-hearted goofball like his dad, Leo.

We hope you enjoy these photos of lovable laid-back Jax! Thanks for reading!

Saber at Three Years!

I've recently gotten new photos of the Kyrie/Leo pups so it's time for an update!!

Here is Saber at three years. His color (in case you would like a Saber of your own some day!) is called "bi-black and tan". Saber is a plush Shiloh who weighs over 110 lbs and in great shape--he goes running with his human dad! He is a very athletic Shiloh who loves to play with "his" kids and leaps to catch his toy. His dad says that Saber is a wonderful family member and they couldn't ask for better. :)

We hope that you enjoy these photos of Saber!

Thanks for checking out our blog! Check back for updates on Jax and Astra!

Thanks for reading! Happy birthday, puppies, from momma Kyrie and daddy Leo!

Congrats to Astra!

A few months back we puppy-sat Astra for her people and shot a couple new photos! We thought you would enjoy seeing them. :)

These shots taken on a cloudy day show her beautiful buff markings.

Astra loves to play with her Momma Kyrie!

Astra also has big news! She successfully completed all of her health and temperament testing and we will be applying for her to officially enter the breeding program! We're very excited because it means Sparta Shilohs may have Astra puppies in 2014. Stay tuned for more news on that, or you can go to our website at and keep an eye on the "Puppies" page!

Thanks for reading, everyone! We hope you enjoyed the photos!

Astra at Two Years Old!

It's been a while since we updated, but Jarrad and Kristin got an awesome shot of Astra on her two-years birthday, wearing her party hat, above. :) With a photo like that, we realized that we really owed Astra an update! Especially since she may be joining the Sparta Shilohs breeding program later this year.

Below, a very nice shot of Astra with her human mom Kristin. :)

This past weekend, Jarrad and Kristin went on a rock-climb and hike with friends, and Astra got to go along! Here's Astra looking up at her mom, sitting next to Jarrad and friend Jill. Don't fall, mom!

Thanks for reading, everyone!

Jax at One Year Old!

Well, I was informed that Jax was very disappointed that I didn't have his update up on time, so I figured I'd better hop to it! Mark and Ruth got me the photos right at a year; it was my tardiness that delayed everything. Without further ado, here is Kyrie/Leo's Jax at one year!

These photos are a combination of ones taken of Jax at his home and at a Sparta Shilohs play-date we had back in April. Leo, Jax, and Astra had a great time playing; momma Kyrie, sadly, was in heat, and could not attend. :) Here is one of Jax and Leo saying hello after not having seen each other for six months. Yes, Jax really is that big!

Daddy Leo in front, Jax in back:

Jax has a very handsome, masculine profile! We are all wondering where that cute little puppy went!

Jax hanging out on the porch, wondering if Astra will ever give back that bowl of tasty ice cubes...

A very handsome shot of Jax taken by his owner Mark!

Thanks for reading, everyone! Now to dig up those photos of Astra at one year! ;)
