Miss Arrow’s pregnancy has flown by so fast and we are now about 2 ish weeks away from meeting our little cavalier babies. Arrow looks amazing – until you pull back her hair, its hard to tell she is pregnant at all. But when you do, there is definitely a belly 🙂
Next week we will do an xray and see how many to expect. I cant wait to announce their safe arrival 🙂
Kazuri is thrilled to announce that we today confirmed that Arrow is pregnant via ultrasound.
We approached the amazing Marybeth from Embee Cavaliers in Ontario Canada about using her beautiful boy “Loki” (CH Embee’s Mischief Managed) as a match for Arrow. Not only is Loki beautiful and has a wonderful disposition, but has passed his health testing (including the same kind of MRI Arrow had done) with flying colors.
We have been lucky enough to see some of the puppies he has already produced and they are gorgeous. To say we are excited about these potential puppies is an understatement.
The litter is due at the end of June, so stay tuned for the announcement sometime around then. While Arrow and Loki are both black and tan, they carry the white gene and so could produce any of the 4 cavalier colors.
Today the wee babies turned 4 weeks – a month sure has flown by so fast!
The beagle babies are growing still – their new skills include walking, jumping (and flopping) and wrestling. They have started solids and are starting to wean off Maddy, sleeping 10 hours alone through the night (with not a peep). They are also consistently going poop in the litterbox so that is great for cleanup 🙂
Their latest pictures are here – i think this will be the last set I can do on my own as they are so fast and dont want to stay in one place at all – I’m going to try and recruit my kids to help next week.
Enjoy them xo

The babies are 3 weeks today – they are all a little more mobile and starting to potty themselves so we started introducing the potty training box. They have used a little so that’s a great start.
They ate food for the first time yesterday – they were a little confused, but I am sure they will start to get the hang of it.
They are growing well – little chunky monkeys 🙂

As you know, health testing is just as important to me (as a breeder) as beauty and temperament. I take my job as a breeder seriously, and I believe that if I am going to add dogs to the world, I want it to be done so with careful thought.
Cavalier King Charles Spaniels can have issues with SM (Syringomyelia) in their brain. The only way to detect it is with a MRI. So Alisha and I decided that we wanted to scan Arrow before we bred her. We flew her up to the amazing team at Thames Valley Veterinary Services in Ontario Canada.
I am so glad we did – no SM was detected in her brain at all – what a wonderful health clearance we have!!! Now, on to breeding her 🙂
