Madison & Vixen’s beagle pups turn 5 weeks

5 weeks – when did that happen? Woah. They are bone-a-fide mini dogs now – running around and talking (aka growling) and playing together and with toys. They love the mini slide and teeter totter. We have combined the two litters together so to make sure we don’t mix them up, I have put collars on Vixen’s litter. While their markings are different, I don’t want to chance mixing them up till I am completely sure I know who is who. Some of them look very similar 🙂

This week’s photos I did outside – their first outside outing – they were a little nervous but mostly curious and so getting them to sit still was quite a challenge. I can see my days of getting headshots are numbered. 😛 HA! But that’s okay – there is a big world out here to explore. This week they will play in the yard properly for the first time. That will be a big adventure for them.

Doug (he will wear a navy blue collar outside)

Bob (he will wear a green collar outside)

Katherine (she will wear a red collar outside)

Thank you for your interest in my breeding program. I wont be making offers to any families till closer to 6-7 weeks when I can assess their structure and temperament, and decide which will be staying in my breeding program.

Please note for any new enquiries, that I have approximately a 12 month + wait time for puppies at this time.

Madison & Vixen’s Pups are 3 weeks.

It seems a little silly to make a separate post for these two litters since they are just two days apart. So, I am going to post it on Thursday – the day in between to be “fair” 🙂 LOL.

The babies are growing up nicely. I am smiling to myself that I think that a couple of Madison’s babies have decided that they want to be babies just a little bit longer – their first bite of food was “traumatic” and caused two to cry (not pointing any fingers :P). I have never had that before. Needless to say, that after several attempts, we now have everyone eating successfully – one little Diva girl prefers to eat off the spoon, and who am I but to oblige her? Life is short and I only get so much time with them at this stage.

They are all beginning to toddle around on drunken legs and so we are starting to let them explore outside the whelping box a little more. Over the coming week/s they will start to discover the magic of toys and what fun those are. 🙂

Enjoy the latest pictures of the babies

Vixen’s puppies are 2 weeks as well

Vixen’s pups are growing up beautifully as well. She is a wonderful momma and they are content and happy little souls.

Their eyes are just opening also – it’s so great to know that we will be able to talk to them and have them hear us this week. 🙂

Their potty box will go in this week too. It’s kind of nice having 2 litters going through everything in unison

Madison’s pups turn 2 weeks

Madison’s babies are growing up and this week we got to see their eyes open. They are beginning to toddle around. Kind of – they are pretty content eating and sleeping also.

This next week I will introduce the potty box – it’s that time 🙂

Enjoy the latest pictures of them as they grow. <3

Vixen and BJ pups turn 1 week

Of course with Maddy’s pups turning a week old, Vixen’s pups are just a couple of days behind. They are also thriving and turning into beautiful chunky little bonny beagle pups. Both mothers are just super at their job – I feel very blessed indeed.

Here are Vixen’s precious 5. I decided the litter theme for Vixen’s babies would be in honor of the Space X launch that happened this week. These are of course only their blog names – we call them all “puppy” until we know their real names from their family or till we name them for real ourselves. The 2 girls were named after Katherine G. Johnson and Dorothy Vaughan who I was very inspired by after watching “Hidden Figures” by their work at NASA.

Mia and Riker’s puppies arrive

We are so thrilled to announce, after 3 missed attempts at trying to get her pregnant, that Miss Mia had 4 healthy puppies this morning. It seemed all she needed was a young boy in person 🙂 LOL.

**Please note that these puppies are being raised with my very wonderful and super capable co-breeders Mike and Karen down in Sacramento. I am grateful as doing 3 litters and 15 puppies would be a little much. 🙂 We truly didnt think all 3 litters would take. But I am so grateful all the same.

Congratulations Riker on your first puppies. <3

Here they are:

Boy 1: 11oz

Boy 2: 11.3oz

Girl 1: 8.7oz

Girl 2: 11.6oz

Madison X Buddy’s pups turn 1 week old

The first week milestone is always a good one for me – it signals that I dont have to get up every 2 hours in the night any more (just once mid way through) to check on them, and usually by now they have gained their birthweight back. Well, these guys are little piggies and a couple have made it to double their birthweight already and the others aren’t far behind. To say Maddy is doing a wonderful job with her pups is an understatement.

This week we should see little peepers – I love seeing their little eyes and watching them get up on their feet for the first time. Although honestly, this is the most content bunch I have ever raised so maybe they will just want to keep sleeping a little longer 😛 HA!

I decided since Buddy’s name is “The Cake Boss”, that I would go with a litter theme of some of my favorite chefs from around the world.

Here you go – this week’s pictures. <3

Boy 1: Gordon (aka Gordon Ramsay)

Boy 2: Ming (aka Ming Tsai)

Newborn Beagle Puppies

I always like to take pictures of my pups when they are 1 day old (and then every week if i can to document their growth). With Maddy and Vixen both out taking a dinner and potty break, I stole the opportunity to take quick photos of them in the whelping box – nothing fancy – just threw a white blanket over a dog bed and snapped some pictures. 🙂

Vixen’s pups are just a few hours old which is why they look a little skinny/dehydrated – I promise that Vixen is taking wonderful care of them and they have been nursing on and off since she got home from the vet. I expect her milk to come in quickly. Please also dont be concerned about the red on two of Vixen’s boy’s head’s – we marked the two that were most fluid filled after birth so we could keep an extra eye on them – so it’s nail polish, not blood you are seeing.

Enjoy these pictures of the babies. I am still coming up with the litter themes so they will get their blog names at 1 week i think. 🙂

Vixen and BJ welcome their beagle pups

The last time Vixen had puppies, she had some trouble during labor and delivery. With such precious cargo on board I didnt want to take any risks.

I was so happy I did. Dr Cindy said her uterus showed no signs of going into labor, and yet because we were on day 64, her placentas were all complete and starting to look “old” (whatever that means???) and as you will see her puppies were huge. So, why she didnt start labor on her own, I will never know, but I am thankful to God that we made the call to take them today. It was perfect timing.

Momma and babies are all perfectly well and Vixen has taken to her new babies wonderfully despite being a little groggy and sore after surgery. I am so grateful.

Meet her 5 beautiful BJ babies.

Boy 1 – 11.9oz

Boy 2 – 10.9oz

Boy 3 – 8.4oz

Madison x Buddy’s puppies arrive

After much consultation with my reproductive vet, Dr Cynthia Smith (from the Pet Doctor), we decided that if Madison hadn’t given birth by the 27th, we would take them via planned c-section as Vixen was due in the days after and she must have a c-section due to several getting stuck last time. I didnt want Madison to be whelping at the same time Vixen was needed in surgery.

The surgery went without a hitch and though Maddy is a little confused and sore, she loves her babies and is doing really well taking care of them.

So, without further ado, introducing the six newest Kazuri babies.

Boy 1 – 9.6oz

Boy 2 – 12.49oz

Boy 3 – 10.7oz

Boy 4 – 11.5oz

Girl 1 – 9.07oz

Girl 2 – 11.2oz
