Dazzling, ¿que no?

She's the one on the right.
Say what? Yes, Mister Felipe and Brooke's dog, SoGood, contributed her unique bark to this record, especially on ¡Fuera, Perro!. You can also hear her bark once in another song--see if you can find which one.

In addition to ladrando, SoGood enjoys exploring wild places, wrestling con su mamá, SoFar, and getting her barriga rubbed.

Of course, muchos niños maravillosos contributed their voices, too: Canyon King, Carolina McGarity y su hermanita Teresa McGarity did las voces de los niños en ¡Fuera, Perro!, ¡Qué Día! y Uno Dos Tres. And the coro (chorus) do niños added great accents on muchas canciones: Canyon King, Robbie Wooldridge, Sierra Wright-Iliohan, and Zach Ginn.

Mister Felipe also got to record guitarra and batería at Dead Horse Studio, ably engineered by John Gold. The record was mastered by Tom Brick at Absolute Audio. Gracias a Meredith for introducing us.
