Madison & Vixen’s beagle pups are 7 weeks and love playing outside

The beagle puppies are growing up and I am enjoying the final time I have with them. Their personalities are coming out and it’s fun to see who is first to try something new and who waits to watch others.

They play in the yard daily and today and I went out in with my camera and took some pictures. These are the colors of collars they have on, so in the photos you know who is who: (Maddy x Buddy) – Gordon – Yellow, Ming – Silver, Bobby – Black, Mario – Cream, Carla – Purple, Julia – Pink. (Vixen x BJ) Elon – Light Blue, Doug – Navy Blue, Bob – Green, Katherine – Red, Dorothy – Orange.

Enjoy the fun – and the wrestling <3

Thank you for your interest in my breeding program. I am just starting to make offers for the puppies as I have decided which pups might stay in my breeding program.

Please note for any new enquiries, that I have approximately a 12 month + wait time for puppies at this time.

Natural Remedy for Skin

A good friend of mine was having some skin allergy issues with her 10 week old beagle puppy. She wouldn’t stop itching. She came up with this little concoction and is giving it daily and has made a huge difference, so I wanted to share it, just in case there are others that might benefit. I am a firm believer in things that can be found in nature to heal the body.

Puppy formula:

1/4 tsp of Colloidal Silver + 1/4 tsp of local honey (local for allergy reasons) + 1/2 tsp of Coconut Oil – melt the coconut oil and honey together gently with hot water and add the colloidal silver. Can be added to food.

Adult Formula.

1/2 tsp of Colloidal Silver + 1/4 tsp of local honey (local for allergy reasons) + 1 tsp of Coconut Oil – melt the coconut oil and honey together gently with hot water and add the colloidal silver. Can be added to food.

My friend has also noticed that after giving this to her 14.5 year old who is in congestive heart failure, that her “heart” cough has disappeared. Simply amazing.

I hope this helps your pup too. <3

Charlotte – (LoKazuri Fourth In Line)

Charlotte doesn’t bear the “Kazuri” affix because she was the result of a combined breeding between myself and Alisha and Susan Lockleer from Lockestar cavaliers. We felt it was only fitting to combine our affixes to show it was a joint effort.

Miss Charlotte doesn’t live with me, she lives with a guardian home (a home where she is, for the most part, a beloved pet – but when the time comes, if she passes her health tests they will allow me to have a litter or two from her). So, when she was visiting this week, I took the opportunity to get some updated photos of her.

She is just shy of her 2nd birthday. <3

Sweet sleepy beagle pups

As i mentioned in my last post, when the beagle puppies were at my studio, they fell asleep so I made the most of it by taking some cute pictures of them together. Then, Mr Ming was sleeping on a pillow, so I snapped a couple of extras of him. <3

Enjoy

Thank you for your interest in my breeding program. I wont be making offers to any families till closer to 7-8 weeks when I can assess their structure and temperament, and decide which will be staying in my breeding program. I am just not quite ready yet – thank you for your patience.

Madison & Vixen’s beagle puppies turn 6 weeks

The beagle puppies are getting bolder and starting to really love the routines. They understand where the food bowls are (naturally) and how to navigate the little stairs out to the yard they play in. It’s amazing how quickly they are growing and exploring their world.

I still haven’t made my decisions about who is staying and going. I appreciate all the people who are waiting and how hard it is for you and i want to thank you for your patience. My breeding program takes hundreds of hours of preparation, commitment and thousands of dollars, and so i agonize over making the right decision so I don’t place the best puppy into a family where they will get neutered or spayed. I try to keep the best in every litter, so my breeding program is built on the built – temperament, structure and health wise. So, again I thank you for your patience.

Here are the photos of this week. I took them to my studio this week for my typical “blue chair” photos. I usually let them play for a while first so they aren’t so wiggly, but by the time I started, they were so worn out nearly everyone was asleep. HA! It worked too well. So some of them are barely awake in the photos.

Puppy playtime in the yard

It was a lovely afternoon so I decided to let the beagle puppies play in the backyard with the big dogs. They confidently ran around smelling all the new smells and exploring the new spots in the yard. We have almost an acre so it could be intimidating for tiny pups, but I was so happy to see that they happy out there. It probably helped that their mommies were out there too.

These are the colors of collars they have on, so in the photos you know who is who: (Maddy x Buddy) – Gordon – Yellow, Ming – Silver, Bobby – Black, Mario – Cream, Carla – Purple, Julia – Pink. (Vixen x BJ) Elon – Light Blue, Doug – Navy Blue, Bob – Green, Katherine – Red, Dorothy – Orange.

Thank you for your interest in my breeding program. I wont be making offers to any families till closer to 6-7 weeks when I can assess their structure and temperament, and decide which will be staying in my breeding program.

Phoenix – Kazuri’s On the Wings of Love TKN

Miss Phoenix is now 14 months and I haven’t put any recent pictures of her on my website so I figured it was about time. She has a funny quirk that when I am trying to take her picture, she blinks – a lot. So, these aren’t the best pictures of her, but they are better than nothing 🙂 <3

I love this sweet, intelligent little girl.

Madison & Vixen’s beagle pups turn 5 weeks

5 weeks – when did that happen? Woah. They are bone-a-fide mini dogs now – running around and talking (aka growling) and playing together and with toys. They love the mini slide and teeter totter. We have combined the two litters together so to make sure we don’t mix them up, I have put collars on Vixen’s litter. While their markings are different, I don’t want to chance mixing them up till I am completely sure I know who is who. Some of them look very similar 🙂

This week’s photos I did outside – their first outside outing – they were a little nervous but mostly curious and so getting them to sit still was quite a challenge. I can see my days of getting headshots are numbered. 😛 HA! But that’s okay – there is a big world out here to explore. This week they will play in the yard properly for the first time. That will be a big adventure for them.

Gordon (he will wear a yellow collar outside)

Ming (he will wear a silver collar outside)

Bobby (he will wear a black collar outside)

Mario (he will wear a cream collar outside)

Carla (she will wear a purple collar outside)

Julia (she will wear a pink collar outside)

Elon (he will wear a light blue collar outside)

Doug (he will wear a navy blue collar outside)

Bob (he will wear a green collar outside)

Katherine (she will wear a red collar outside)

Dorothy (she will wear a orange collar outside)

Factor 7 and Beagles

Factor 7 is a potential delay in blood coagulation, during times of trauma. 

So, it isn’t the same as hemophilia where the dog bleeds out as they don’t coagulate at all.  It wouldn’t impact them in a time of non-trauma like running around the yard and hurting themselves on a stick.  

The potential would come into play with times of trauma – being hit by a car, or something else traumatic – there is a higher likelihood of blood taking longer to coagulate – but not guaranteed that this would even happen.

Ruth Stewart, AKC judge and long time breeder has written up an excellent article with examples of “affected dogs” that have not been impacted by their F7 – http://www.aladarbeagles.com/factor7.html  It is definitely worth a read. 

What would it mean for you if your dog was “affected”? 

What I recommend to my dogs who are “affected” is to give them vitamin K in the days leading up to a spay/neuter, and to inform the vet so they can have plasma on board “just in case”.  But other than that, you and your dog can live a pretty normal life thankfully

Madison & Vixen’s Pups are 3 weeks.

It seems a little silly to make a separate post for these two litters since they are just two days apart. So, I am going to post it on Thursday – the day in between to be “fair” 🙂 LOL.

The babies are growing up nicely. I am smiling to myself that I think that a couple of Madison’s babies have decided that they want to be babies just a little bit longer – their first bite of food was “traumatic” and caused two to cry (not pointing any fingers :P). I have never had that before. Needless to say, that after several attempts, we now have everyone eating successfully – one little Diva girl prefers to eat off the spoon, and who am I but to oblige her? Life is short and I only get so much time with them at this stage.

They are all beginning to toddle around on drunken legs and so we are starting to let them explore outside the whelping box a little more. Over the coming week/s they will start to discover the magic of toys and what fun those are. 🙂

Enjoy the latest pictures of the babies
