Kazuri beagles had a wonderful weekend at the Stockton shows in California.
I am proud to announce that River is now CH Kazuri’s River of Dreams. He won Winners Dog/Best of Winners under lovely judge Ms. Elizabeth Muthard on Friday.
Then this morning he was Winners Dog/Best of Winners under Mr Charles L. Olvis. Both wins got him 2 points towards his CH.
River’s biggest win of the weekend was at the Stockton Beagle Specialty though on Sunday morning, where he took Winners Dog from a beautiful line up of Bred By Exhibiter dogs, as well as the rest of the entries for a 5 point major. This was under esteemed breeder judge Mrs Karen A. Ropp. He also went on to win Best Bred By Exhibiter in Show.
All of his points have been from the Bred By class. I couldn’t be prouder! Thank you to Mike Kurtzner and Karen Kurtzner who co-bred and co-own this fun boy and always present him so beautifully.
Kazuri beagles had a great start to the Stockton shows in California. I am proud to announce that Emmy is now CH Kazuri’s Dreaming of an Emmy. She won Winners Bitch for 2 points finally finishing her title. She just needed 1 single to finish. I couldn’t be prouder especially since it was only 9 weeks after she had puppies!
We are so excited to announce the safe arrival of our boy CH LockeStar ‘Cause I’m Up To No Good, CGCA TKN – Sirius’ first litter of 3 girls! We just love this boy to bits and wish the breeder of his litter well (she dosnt want to be announced publicly at this time). We can’t wait to watch how they grow!
I also want to thank the Portolese family for being such incredible owners of Leo – you have done a great job training him and providing a loving home for him, but still let me show him. I appreciate all of your support so much.
We didnt make an official announcement about these litters since our waitlist is so full already. Mike and Karen raised them in California and then we met up to grade the litters, and then I brought the companions home to get to know them before they are going to their new homes. 🙂
**Please note these puppies are all sold – this post was not intended as a sale notice. I just wanted to let you know what was going on with Kazuri**
On 9/1/2018 Victoria and Slushy welcomed 3 beautiful girls into the world. We are keeping one to show. I will announce her later on. 🙂 These are the two sweet babies that are being sold as amazing companions.
Cinnamon: Sweet, cuddly, but also super confident. (red & white) Girl
Cocoa: Cuddly, pretty quiet but still social, going to be a bigger girl (15 inch)
Emmy and Lee also welcomed a litter on 9/8/2018 – 5 boys and a girl. We are growing up two males to potentially show.
Berry: Special miracle of a girl – overcome the odds to be able to use her left foot – best for a family who dont hike a lot. Will be smaller – maybe a 13. Sweet and cuddly
Fudge: Happy, social & wants a cuddle before playing again – BOY
Pepper: Sweet and active, loves to kiss your face off and play games galore. He is a large personality is a little package – BOY
Mac: Quieter boy, snuggly with a more “cruisy” attitude but happy to be where ever you are.
The cavalier puppies are thriving – they are playful and fun, eating like perfect little monsters three times a day and snuggling up a storm whenever they find a warm lap that will accommodate them. They are definitely cavaliers 🙂
They love playing outdoors and we got outside in between the rain showers this week. I think they must be teething a little as the acorns outside took quite a beating with their tiny dinosaur teethies. 🙂 Better than my fingers i guess. 🙂
My breeding partners, Susan and Alisha from Lockestar cavaliers did an initial grading this week to see who might be staying at Kazuri/Lockestar for showing. It is going to be a hard choice we can tell. We will do our final grading on the 30th when they are 8 weeks, along with Mia from Zelosia Cavaliers (owner of the stud we used on Arrow’s litter). Stay tuned 🙂
Till then, enjoy the latest pictures of the babies. They are growing up. Dont mind their crazy hair – they had just eaten lunch so we hadn’t cleaned them up before having a play time. Can you tell who is who still?

First of all, I need to apologize for the obnoxious watermark across the images. I found my images have been stolen and so I need to come up with a new way to deter people from taking them. I’m not sure this is it…but its a work in progress… So sorry…
Anyway, on to happier things. The babies are too busy for photos now – they just want to play and jump and explore. And who could blame them – there is a giant world out there after all.
Their play pen now has a tunnel and a teeter board. They are getting fairly proficient at using the litter box. They come when I call “puppy” and their tails wag like little propellers.
Their personalities are definitely emerging. We have a couple who are more bold and a few who are quieter. But all are love bugs just as cavaliers should be. <3 how we are ever going to let them go, I dont know.
For their 5 week anniversary, we gave the cavalier puppies a trip to the great outdoors (ie our yard) 🙂 They were not really sure what to make of it and really just chewed on the plants around them. But, there wasn’t too much squeaking so I will call that a win for a positive experience 🙂
In fact a couple of them even fell asleep – I could tell they were super stressed by the whole thing – HA! Not 🙂
Time is ticking on so fast – the babies are 3 weeks already. They all have wide open eyes and are starting to explore. They are finding their voices and we hear little growls and “purrs” from the puppy pen when they are awake. Its rather sweet.
This week we will add a potty box to the puppy pen and start the process of introducing potty training. I have never done this many puppies at once so I am hoping it will work okay.
This week we will also introduce their first solids. I will definitely post a picture or two of their first meal 🙂
