Pud & Spencers Pups turn 8 weeks

With the beagle pups turning 8 weeks, it was time to really start to look at them carefully and try and figure out which would be our “keepers” and which might go to show homes.

Jagger (that will not be his long term name). Staying at Van-mar – co-owned by Chelsea and Sarah – Van-Mar/Kazuri

Naomi – will be co-owned with Jenni Neift (OutWest) & Lisa Young (Youngsong beagles)

Suni – staying here at Kazuri

Todd – now called Charlie. Owned by Jenni Neift (OutWest) & Lisa Young (Youngsong)

Bolt – pending

Faith – pending

Tina – now known as Audrey Hepburn and owned by Terri from Danter beagles.

Bronte – Now Penny Lane – loved by her new family

Puddin’s beagle pups are 6 weeks

The weather is thankfully still warm so we have started having daily playtimes outside. The pack loves spending time with them – especially my son’s 13 week old golden Shirley. She adores them and is surprisingly gentle with them.

This week I decided not to do individual photos, but to let you enjoy some pictures of the babies playing in our big back yard yard, and the smaller puppy yard (we have a special small yard if they will be unattended, since we have hawks and eagles, so it’s safer there).

Enjoy – they are at such a fun age 🙂

Puds beagle pups turn 5 weeks

Pud and Spencer’s beagle pups turned 5 weeks today. They are getting much more confident on their feet and have conquered the slide and play daily “king of the castle” up there.

We are definitely seeing them enjoying exploring their world – they love to climb on top of blankets if we leave them out, or scramble over toys and obstacles that have been left (aka little boxes or teeter totters and such). We love to snuggle them. They are at that sweet age where they play for a short time and then crash and nothing can wake them.

We are letting them have small visits in the garden – they are gaining confidence out there too – its a big world out there with so many new smells and sensations. They really weren’t interested in stopping to take pictures. Oh well. 🙂

I am loving raising this litter – I only wish Chels lived closer so she could join me in all the snuggles too. Videos only show so much.

Enjoy the latest pictures of our precious babies.

Pud’s pups turn 4 weeks old

Time is starting to fly by – we are at the half way point – I am not sure how we got here already. The babies are starting to be awake a little more and play in their pen.

We are giving them more activities to interact with and it is fun to see them explore the world around them. They are using the litter boxes when it is available to them about 50% of the time – a great start to litterbox training 🙂

I took them outside for a little outside time since the weather was so favorable. They were a little unsure at first but it didn’t take them long to use their little noses to start exploring that weird green stuff and all the plants in my garden.

Enjoy the photos of them this week.

New Champion Sir

I am so so pleased to announce that Sir “Kazuri’s To Sir With Love” is our latest champion. He makes Kazuri’s 6th beagle champion for 2021. <3

On Saturday, at the Sammamish Kennel club being held in Enumclaw WA, under judge Mrs. Kathleen J Brock, Sir went WD, BOW for a 3point major.

Then again today, under Mrs. Marianne C. Klinkoswki, he did it again going WD and BOW for another 3 point major to finish.

Sir finished his CH undefeated in the classes in only 4 weekends of showing (one of which was a single specialty day). He is now going to finish his health testing and enjoy the good life at home for a while. I am very proud.

Pud’s pups turn 3 weeks old

Pud’s pups are growing beautifully. They are still on the smaller side but they amaze me with how active they are, so that might account with some of the lack of chub – they play with each other and the toys around their playpen. Their eyes are completely open and they wake up and toddle over to the side of the pen when they hear my voice. Yes, it’s a little ego boost 🙂 HAHA. Really, it’s just because I bottle fed them and they see me as a quick way to get their belly full 🙂

We are enjoying them so very much. I can’t wait till their little personalities start to emerge a little more.

This week we started solids a little earlier than I normally do – with Pudding’s milk supply not as high as needed, I thought we could support with some baby mush. They love love love their food 🙂 They are not super skilled at eating it, often trying to “nurse” it out of the bowl, but I know that those skills will come with time. But, I am glad they are getting some extra calories.

Their photos tonight were a little rushed – it was dinnertime and they were starving – so not my best work – but enjoy anyway. 🙂

Pud’s beagle pups turn 1 week old

We are totally smitten with these 8 little loves. Pudding is a wonderful and attentive mother. Her milk has been slow to come in and so I have been giving her a helping hand with feeding. While I am tired, I am grateful everyone is doing well and enjoying my extra cuddles when I give each one a feed 🙂

I decided, because they were born on the opening day of the Olympics 2020, that i would name them after some of my favorite athletes from both the past and present. Obviously I had thousands to choose from, but i chose a few that stood out for one reason or another.

So, without further ado, here are our Olympians 🙂

Girl 1 – now Faith. I named her after 1500m runner from Kenya, Faith Chepngetich Kipyegon who won in 2016 in Rio. I loved her determination, and her unending joy as she ran. This tiny girl (we often call her “mighty mouse”) struggled for a few days and we thought we might lose her. I prayed a lot, so Faith seemed fitting on many levels.

Boy 1 – now Todd, after Mark Todd from NZ. As a little girl i loved horses and rose whenever I could. In 1984 and 1988, with the beautiful Charisma, Mark won Gold in individual evening, and a bronze in the team event. For years, any bay horse I rode, I imagined was Charisma. So, Todd is a nod to their amazing success.

Girl 2 – now Bronte – after the Bronte Campbell from Australia. What I love the most about Bronte is the fact that she and her sister Cate both compete and swim together. The have attended several Olympics together and I just love to watch their comradery and friendship, as well as them being champions at their sport (swimming).

Girl 3 – now Suni – after Suni Lee. I love gymnastics – these men and women are the epitome of power under control. Watching Suni Lee win the all-around was so incredible this week – she stepped up to the plate when Simone could no longer compete and I thought that was marvelous.

Girl 4 – now Naomi – after Naomi Osaka. Naomi dominates in tennis – she is ranked No. 1 by the Women’s Tennis Association and is the first Asian player to hold the top ranking in singles. What a way to represent both Japan and Haiti which are the two nationalities of her birthright. I loved watching her be the final torch bearer at the opening ceremony – what an honor indeed.

Boy 2 – now Bolt – after Usain Bolt. I will admit that track and field is not my #1 favorite thing to watch at the Olympics. But I always turned in to watch Usain run. He made it look so effortless and was always SO proud of representing Jamaica (as he should be). What a remarkable career to get gold medals in 2008, 2012 and 2016.

Boy 3 – Jagger – after Jagger Eaton. For those who don’t know, skateboarding made a debut at the Olympics this year. I know because my son skates and we have enjoyed many hours watching the guys compete. While Jagger didn’t get gold (he got bronze), I will admit that I loved his name as much as anything else.

Girl 5 – now Tiina – after Ilse Kristiina Lillak was the 1984 Olympic silver medalist in javelin throwing, from Finland. She broke several world records over her career, and I just thought that was pretty incredible.

I hope you enjoyed the latest photos of them. Please note that these puppies are not available as pets at this time. Thank you for understanding.
