Arrow x Blake welcome their babies

This morning, in the wee hours, Arrow decided she was ready to whelp and did it all on her own.  Day 56 – so earlier than I had expected her to.

I had checked on her hours earlier and there were no signs of delivery, and when i woke a couple of hours later we had a litter.

Unfortunately, because of this, one of puppies got too cold and we lost her 🙁    But, we are thrilled to announce, 3 healthy babies  – 2 ruby girls and a black n tan boy.   6.8oz

5.8 oz

5.5oz

James’ first Major

We have more good news! James – Kaszuri East of Eden (CH Verheyen Dustin x LockeStar Love Struck), went Winners Dog / Best Of Winners for a 3 point major yesterday under judge Gloria Geringer! We just couldn’t be happier for our second homebred cavalier and son of Arrow. What a wonderful way to wrap up the show weekend for the half brothers James and Sirius A huge congratulations to all the other winners this weekend! Also a huge shout out to Zoelea, Robert and Wendy for the amazing hospitality of Alisha and Susan this weekend.

New CH Sirius

What a dream come true! As a combination between myself, Alisha Lockleer and Susan Lockleer as breeder/owner/handlers, we are thrilled to announce that Sirius is now CH LockeStar ‘Cause I’m Up To No Good, CGCA – of course pending AKC confirmation.

He truly finished in style, from the Bred By class all the way.   He completed his CH title with three 4pt majors. The icing on the cake was taking back to back Best Of Breeds with a Group 4 and a Bred By Exhibitor Group1 under judges Fred Bassett and James Moses at the absolutely gorgeous Cook Inlet Kennel Club.

We are beyond thrilled! Thank you to all involved in making this dream a reality!

We are expecting cavalier puppies

We are thrilled to announce the impending arrival of two cavalier litters.

Arrow was bred to Blake “GCH Orchard Hill Tough Enough”

He combines beautiful structure with longevity and strong hearts.  We are excited about this adorable match.  As Arrow carries the white gene, the puppies could be any of the 4 colors.  Blenhiem, Ruby, Black n tan or Tri.

Mom Arrow:

Dad: Blake

 

The second litter is Paris to Gunnar “GCH Truelegance Pistols at Dawn”

Gunnar comes from long lines of heart clear dogs and has a few MRI clear dogs in his pedigree also which of course I love.    The puppies from these litters can only be Blenheim or tri colored.

Mom: Paris

Dad: Gunnar

 

Please note that we have a current waitlist and the puppies are more than likely sold already.

We do have litters planned for 2019.  Please feel free to contact us in regards to those litters if you are interested.

 

Woofstock, Vallejo CA

We had a brilliant weekend at Woofstock this weekend. Emmy (Kazuri’s Dreaming of an Emmy) garnered 5 points towards her CH title including a lovely 4point major win under Judge David R. Miller. We are thankful for Mc Linda C. Moore for also recognizing her. She had not been in the ring since the national last October, so we were tickled at how well she did.

Not to be outdone, our little 13 inch Vixen (Hailstorm’s Feeling a little Foxy at Kazuri) won Best Opposite 2 days under judges Ms Linda C. Moore and Mrs. Patricia V.Trotter. The big excitement was on Saturday when she won Best of Breed over several lovely specials for a 5 point major under judge Mr David R. Miller!

Lastly, our puppy boy, River, (Kazuri’s River of Dreams) went reserve 3/4 days, but today delighted us with his second winners dog/best of winners win garnering his second 3 point major under judge Mrs. Patricia V. Trotter. At 8 months old, and this being his second dog show, we are proud that his is half way to his CH title.
I am so thankful to co-owners and co-breeders Mike Kurtzner and Karen Kurtzner who so wonderfully presented our dogs this weekend.

Seattle Kennel Club

So proud of our Bred By boy Sirius, (Lockestar ‘Cause I’m Up to No Good) Bred by myself and Alisha Lockleer – they got back to back Winners Dog and Best of Winners at Seattle Kennel club under judges Cindy Vogels and Larry Abbott. We are so proud of how this young boy is maturing. He is only a few points away from finishing his CH title.

It seems the beagles had a great weekend at Seattle Kennel club also – GCH Kazuri’s A Mind of His Own aka Fonzie won Best of Breed and then went on to get a NOHS Group 4 today under Judge Laura Pond with his owner Sarah Yates today – congratulations to them both on their hard work and dedication!!

Cavalier saves his owners’ life

I have an amazing story to share.

Mochi, a cavalier, I co-bred with Alisha Lockleer with LockeStar Cavaliers, saved a life today.
Here is the story in his owner, Esther’s, words:
“Alisha, I spoke to you how Mochi never barks. The boys and I were eating breakfast and I was on my phone typing. Mochi started barking and barking loud and it startled me hearing him bark. As my eyes went up I noticed my son was choking and couldn’t breathe. Poor baby didn’t even make a single noise as he couldn’t. I ran around to him and we got the food out of his throat. I am so grateful for Mochi being alert to my babies and amazed that he even knew something was wrong with no noise from my son!! So he got a special treat today.”


Mochi is sired by Mary Beth Squirrell‘s boy Loki (Embee’s Mischief Managed) and is out of our girl Arrow.

Esther, Alisha, and I are so proud of Mochi!!! So is his brother Sirius!! These little dogs are so incredible and know so much more than we think they do!

Beagle pups are 9 weeks ~ final post before we say goodbye

This will be the final post of all the pups together as we will say goodbye to most of the litter later this week as they will be off to their forever homes.

Its bittersweet….

One or two of the boys will stay with co-breeders Mike and Karen to grow up and see if they will become show dogs.  But everyone else will be loved companions.  We are thankful to each incredible family who is adopting these guys.  We know they are so lucky to be going home with you.
