Sir is a sweet and loveable boy – the son of one the most famous beagles of all time “BIS BISS Kahootz Chase Manhatten” aka Ben. I had been wanting to do a breeding to Ben for a long time and since he passed away many years ago, I had to convince the owners of the rare semen left for him, to let me use it 🙂 I feel so lucky.
Sir is our keeper boy. I have shown him a couple of times, and while he is a pretty boy, he needs to grow up a little bit. He is a typical young man – easily distracted by the world and everything around him. So, I want him to grow up a little bit and then try again in 2021.
Today I took some photos of him playing in the yard – he was exploring down by the lake and of course went a little too close and fell in – haha! He looked mortified. And then proceeded to find a toy to run around with.
Rosie (Kazuri’s Everything’s Coming Up Roses) and Nick (Kazuri’s All I Want For Christmas) had their debut at the San Mateo and Oakland dog shows this weekend. Due to Covid, all the dog shows around California have been cancelled this year and so we were grateful that these ones went ahead with so much planning and social distancing.
My co-breeders and co-owners Mike and Karen Kurtzner took Rosie and Nick into the ring. We never know how a first weekend will go, especially when they are over a year, but Nick and Rosie took it all in stride and acted like they were old pros.
Rosie showed in 13s, taking Best of Breed Thursday, Friday and Saturday and then Reserve Winners Bitch on the Sunday.
Nick showed in 15s and went Best Dog and Best of Winners each day and then Best of Breed Saturday and Sunday – Saturday was over specials.
While there weren’t big points to be won, I am thrilled at the start these two have made.
A huge thank you to judges Mrs Barabara Dempsey Alderman, Ms Denney C. Mounce, Ms Peggy L Lloyd and Mrs Debbie Campbell-Freeman for recognizing our dogs.
Rosie is Madison x Walter (CH Foxtails Dreaming of the Race TKN x BISS GCH Meadowcrest Just Call Me Sir) and Nick is Vixen x Payton (CH Hailstorms Feeling a little Foxy at Kazuri TKN x CH Malarky In Good Company).
