The final pictures of Vixen’s Beagle pups

*Sob* – this is the final post I will be doing of these precious little ones as they will start going to their new homes. I will be keeping close tabs on them of course, but it is always bittersweet to say goodbye. It has been so special to raise these precious little babies.

Cinnamon is now going to be called Willow – Kazuri’s Cover Me In Sunshine. I will co-own her with Maria from Starfall Samoyds.

Nutmeg (yet to be named) will be moving to live with his 1/2 brother with the Miller family

Ginger is now known as Crosby – Kazuri’s Answered Prayer and will be living with his mother Vixen who is retiring and the Neuenschwander family in Oregon

Clove who is staying at Kazuri and his now going to be called Aspen – Kazuri’s Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.

Indoor playtime for the Beagle pups

The beagle pups are 7 weeks old today. The weather in the PNW is wet wet wet and so we can’t always go outside right now – but there is always room to play inside in the living room. So – today I took some photos of them playing in our living room. Enjoy <3

Vixen’s beagle babies play outdoors

Is there anything cuter than beagle pups at play? I think not. It has been cold and snowy and then rainy and so the babies haven’t had a ton of outdoor playtime. So – when we had a break in the weather today, we made the most of it with a lovely romp in the garden. I love how bold and happy the babies are as they play with the adults. These pups are so confident. These photos are in lieu of their 6 week old photos – I wasn’t able to take the photos as I had COVID and was too tired to take them. I think they are pretty cute regardless – don’t you agree?

We had a 1 cavalier litter and 3 beagle litters this year. I am so thankful to the breeders that let us use their stud dogs and allow their breeding programs be part of mine. I am so excited to see what the future might hold for our youngsters.

We also made many families very happy by placing our non keepers in loving homes expanding the “Kazuri” family. We are so happy to welcome each and every one of you and thank you for caring and loving our dogs so well. We are so grateful. <3

I wanted to say that we can’t do any of this alone – I am thankful to my village (I am so sorry if I forget to mention anyone specifically). I am so thankful to my co-owners/breeders in beagles Mike and Karen Kurtzner, and to my co-owners in cavaliers Susan and Alisha Lockleer. I am so thankful to Mike and Karen for handling Nick so beautifully plus many of my beagles to CH titles, but also to Tammie Wilcox, Jennifer Bell, Serena Soares, Sarah Yates and Cheyenne Calvert for the role you played in showing, transporting and finishing dogs for me. And thank you to new beagle breeding partner Chelsea Metteer – it was so fun to have a litter with you.

Bring on 2022!!

Charlotte & Christopher’s cavalier pups turn 2 weeks old

To say I am thrilled is an understatement. Being a breeder is hard work – it comes with ups and downs – from the highs of awards and placements and beautiful litters, to the devastating blows of a missed litter or a puppy passing away after nights staying up around the clock trying to save it’s life. I wouldn’t trade it – it just comes with the territory.

So – when I get a litter that thrives from day 1, I thank God in Heaven. I don’t take it lightly.

Charlotte is a wonderful mother and keeps her babies clean and very well fed. We hardly hear a peep from them. I can’t be more thankful than that.

So – this weeks litter comes with a smile on my face that these little babies are right on track to where they should be. Their eyes have just opened so I know movement is just around the corner.

I decided to name them Christmas names – because why not – it is the most wonderful time of the year afterall. My favorite time of the year in fact. <3

Girl – now Holly (since her mother was originally Mistletoe)

Boy 1 – now Cole (after the late Great Nat King Cole)

Boy 2 – now Leon (an anagram of Noel)

Thank you for your interest in my puppies – at this stage, because of my waitlist, there will not be any puppies available for new enquiries. thank you for understanding.

Vixen’s beagle babies are 4 weeks

Vixen and Bob’s little babies are not so little anymore. They are playing more and more and loving the variety of toys we get out for them each day – they are getting more proficient at the mini slide/stair set and wobble board and I think the cat tunnel is their most prized possession 🙂

They are eating 3 times a day and Vixen sees them more as playmates now – she really doesn’t want to nurse them and only does so for a min or two – those needle teeth sure are getting to her. But she cleans them and plays with them and is the ever attentive mother. I couldn’t ask for more at this stage.

Enjoy these photos of their first adventure outdoors. We had an afternoon where it wasn’t too cold so we made the most of it for a quick 20 min play outside before coming back inside.

Vixen and Bob’s beagle pups are 3 weeks old

Vixen’s pups are growing like weeds – fat little sausages might be a better description. They spend most of the day sleeping. Over the last few days they have started to try and play together, but i think their favorite thing is to sleep in a puddle pile together.

I love this stage. 🙂 They are so cuddly and sweet.

This week we are going to introduce solids and the potty box – wish us luck 🙂 Just kidding – i have found it to be wonderfully successful.

Enjoy the 3-week photos of the babies.

Vixen and Bob’s beagle pups are 2 weeks

Vixen is a wonderful mom. I am so blessed to have moms like her in my breeding program. They keep the whelping box and puppies spotless and clean and the puppies fat and content. We never hear a peep or squeak out of them, they are simply happy babies.

We started seeing little slivers of eyes a few days ago and the little girl has her eyes open almost completely. I am smiling to myself that she has something to prove to be the first 🙂

I decided to go with a Thanksgiving Spice theme for this litter since they were born on Thanksgiving. I have so so much to be thankful for with their arrival and what their bloodline will mean to my breeding program moving forward.

So- without further ado – introducing:

The girl – aka Cinamon

Boy 1 – aka Nutmeg

Boy 2 – aka Ginger

Boy 3 – aka Clove

Please note that at this stage I have a waitlist – if you want to apply for future litters, please do so at the “litter plans” page. thank you

Puppy playtime in the Yard

Anytime there is a break in the rain, and it isn’t too cold, we pop the pups outside for a little playtime. The pack loves playing with them too – our son’s 6 month old Golden Shirley is in love with the babies and loves to wrestle with them. For the most part she is very gentle but we stay very close by, just in case.

Grandma Madison and Momma Rosie love to get in the action too. 🙂 Both are wonderful matriachs and teachers of fun and healthy boundaries.

I hope you enjoy these photos of the babies in our gardens tonight – by the time I had finished taking photos, it was getting a little dark (thanks Winter 🙂 ), but you still get the idea.
