Brianna (my daughter) decided to take Sirius in the Jrs ring this weekend at the Cavaliers of Puget Sound (COPS) dog shows at Puyallup Kennel Club. She also took him into the Breed ring. Sirius responds so well to her – he watches her intently and just loves her.
To our amazement and thrill, Sirius and Brianna won the first (and only) Award of Merit under esteemed breeder judge Mrs. Cindy Huggins! <3 What a win indeed! <3
I really hope they continue – they could go so far together.
Happy Birthday to Chloe, Laila, James and Max – the Fab 4
Our Arrow x Dustin litter. All are heart clear and healthy and happy <3
Today I did my first attempt at stacking the beagle babies (4.5 weeks old).
This (for those not in the show world) gives us the ability to be able to see the structure of each puppy – how their forechest and angles look, their topline and head shape. We will do this over the coming weeks and try and figure out which puppy/s will stay and grow up here at Kazuri, and which will go to their new forever companion home.
Stacking is new and confusing for them and I do it gently and keep it fun as i want the babies to think its a game to stand still. I am learning myself, so these are not perfect by any means.
Now that the beagle babies are getting bigger, they have moved to a day pen so they can hang out. we have started potty training using “yesterdays news” cat litter and dinnertime is eagerly awaited. They are growing up!!
