The ACKCS National

The American Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club is hosting it’s annual National – dogs come from all over the country to compete together and show off their latest show hopefuls, and just have a great time meeting new friends and seeing old ones.

Alisha got to go on behalf of myself and Susan, and took Sirius (GCH Lokestar ‘Cause I’m Up to No Good) and Truman (Kazuri’s Struck by the Truth with Lockestar).

She is also travelling with Emma, a jr handler who has an amazing work ethic and is just an awesome young lady – she has a cavalier Bentley she competes with in Jrs and they make a great team – I wish them all the best as they travel together!

Arrow’s cavalier babies are 4 weeks old

The cavalier king Charles puppies are growing up and boy are they a barrel of fun now. They are eating food 3 times a day (I think that deserves it’s own post next) and for their 4 week anniversary we took them outside for the first time. The weather around Woodinville has been nice lately – (I know – what is up with the lack of rain Washington? I dont know, but if Seattle keeps being like this, our city will keep exploding with people :P) The babies of course LOVED it – probably too much as it was hard to get a photo of them as they wanted to explore and play rather than sit still for silly pictures. Even when they are not sure, their tails are always wagging which I absolutely love. These little ones have beyond captured my heart.

Prada – now 1lb 5oz (still our smallest – tiny but mighty)

Burberry – now 1lb 8.5oz – our most feisty – I love her little growls

Chanel – 2lb 4oz – still our biggest 🙂

Virgil – my cruisy “little” man – often found sleeping on his back somewhere 2lb 3oz

Playtime with momma and the beagles is so much fun – especially when it’s muddy outside

Brisa’s cavalier litter

As some people know, I have cavalier breeding partners Susan Lockleer and Alisha Lockleer from LockeStar cavaliers. While this cavalier litter is not mine, I am excited to share with you and celebrate with them the safe arrival of 3 tri boys and 3 black and tan girls from Brisa and Journey. Brisa is Arrow’s niece and so these puppies are related to my puppies also.

I got to meet them today – a week old <3

Information about this litter, the parents and the breeders can be found at the LockeStar website: https://anyeazi.wixsite.com/lockestarcavaliers

Arrow’s cavalier pups are 3 weeks

Arrow’s puppies are growing like little weeds. They are starting to explore the puppy pen and we hear little growls and “yips” when they try to play (and by play I mean wiggle and bat each other without coordination)

They had their first taste of food this week and LOVED it. We will start to incorporate more food as they are starting to need the extra food.

Enjoy this weeks pictures

Please note that we are a small, family hobby cavalier king Charles spaniel breeder here in Woodinville which is just north of Seattle, Washington. We have a network of other breeders that we are connected to, so if we dont have a puppy for you, we would be happy to connect you to someone else who might have a perfect furry companion for you.

Paris’ pups are 2.5 weeks

Paris is an amazing mama and her babies are thriving under her care. They are growing so big and their eyes are opening and they are starting to move around. I went to Alisha’s for a visit and of course had to bring my camera for a quick shoot before a cuddle.

Arrow’s puppies are 2 weeks

Arrow’s little cavalier puppies are 2 weeks old today. They have all started to open their eyes which means they have all started to mobilize. Like fat little sausages, they wobble across the whelping box to find where ever Arrow is sleeping if they decide that they are hungry. I guess that means its almost time to bring out the potty mats. 🙂

Miss Prada – tiny but mighty at 11.82oz

Miss Burberry – now 15.03oz

Miss Chanel is now 18.91oz (or 1 lb 2.91oz)

And then finally Mr Virgil is 16.20 oz (or 1lb 2oz)

Arrows pups are a week old

Arrow’s puppies are doing great. They are all fat and healthy. Their coats are glossy and their bodies are getting stronger. We are loving our daily snuggles with them. The time already seems to be flying by way too quickly.

Miss Prada – she is now 7.62oz

Miss Burberry is now 10.48oz

Miss Chanel is 10.72 oz

And Mr Virgil is 10.37oz

We weigh them twice a day to make sure that they are gaining weight. If they lost weight in a 12 hour period, I would intervene by supplementing to make sure that they dont fall behind. So far, all seems to be going well, and they are eating well, and growing just like they should be. <3
