Nick wins his 2nd BISS

After a few days of taking it easy, our special boy Nick came back into the ring with great flair starting the Houston World Series of Dog Shows with a bang. Today at the San Jacinto Beagle Club, Nick (MBIS MBISS GCHS Kazuri’s All I Want For Christmas) went Best Of Variety in the 15 inch beagles in a lovely lineup of beagles, and then went on to win Best in Specialty by beating the 13 inch Variety winner.

We are very thankful to judge Mrs Molly Martin for this great honor and for finding our happy little hound in the beautiful lineup today.

Congratulations to David and Ann Wolf on Ivy’s 13 inch BOV win today from the Veteran class and to all the other winners today.

Our little Violet, Kazuri’s Keeping Up Appearances, made us proud by going Best Bred By today too.

I am proud as punch as a breeder today!!

Puddin’ and Spencer are having beagle babies

On behalf of Leigh and Helen Gibson (from Karakush Beagles in Australia), Terri Papagni-Carter and Daniel Carter (from Danter Beagles), Chelsea Metter (from VanMar Beagles) and I, I would like to formally announce the most anticipated announcement of Van-Mar and Kazuri’s latest breeding!

Sired by the one-and-only “Spencer”, sire of the 2015 WKC Best in Show Winner and many other notable champions and producers, BISS CH Ha-Penny’s Too Much Trouble and out of our stunning Australian import, CH Karakush The Proof Is Inth Pudding “Puddin”.

This breeding was of paramount importance for many reasons, but mostly because Spencer has been gone for several years and has very limited breeding opportunities left. We are forever indebted to Terri and Dan for trusting and allowing us to use the 13 year-old frozen semen with Puddin. We can never repay you!

Secondly, our unending gratitude also goes to Le and Helen for without them there would never be Puddin. She is the sweetest, happiest beagle there was and gives us the opportunity to bring in lines to strengthen our programs tenfold.

My personal thanks and love goes to Chelsea who has been such a joy to do beagle partnership with – it has been hard to believe we only met in person a few short months ago – I feel like I have known you all my life. We are so aligned with how we feel about so many things and our goals – this process with you has been nothing short of easy – so thank you friend.

Last but not least, a big shout out to ICSB Nor Cal (Shannon and Sydney Stone) for their professional progesterone timing and TCI services (they are seriously on point!) and going above and beyond for this breeding, Willow Creek Veterinary Clinic for their amazing service and ultrasound machine.

Spencer x Puddin, due July 24th, 2021 with a confirmed 8 puppies aboard, we are thrilled to bits!!! 💖💖💖

Sir finishes getting all his single points at the Puyallup Cluster.

Sir (also known as “King Louie” to his family) garnered all his singles this weekend. Now just need to find him some majors to finish his CH title.

Official win photos to come so a candid from the showgrounds will have to do.

On Friday, at the Puyallup Valley Kennel Club, Kazuri’s To Sir With Love went Winners Dog/Best of Winners under judge Mr. Nathaniel Horn.

Sir went Winners Dog/Best of Winners/Best of Opp over a special on Saturday under judge Mr. Bryan Martin.

He went Winners Dog on Sunday under judge Mr. Luis F. Sosa.

He went Winners Dog again on Sunday under judge Mrs. Patti Wadick Neale.

Sir is out of our homebred champion “Emmy” (CH Kazuri’s Dreaming of an Emmy) and “Ben” (BIS/BISS CH Kahootz Chase Manhatten).

Sir is MLS/F7/NCCD/CAT clear and black tri dominant.

Thank you to the judges who found my “Covid baby” this weekend and congratulations to all the other winners. Thank you also to Tammie Wilcox for showing Sir this weekend. I always appreciate her so much. I had a crazy weekend with other commitments, so appreciated her support.

Heart Testing Day

Before I send any cavalier litter home, I try and get their hearts checked by a cardiologist and their eyes checked by an ophthalmologist. I just think it is good practice for me to know they are going home clear – even if they develop something later on in life, we knew what their baseline was.

I got Charlotte’s babies done and took the time to get some of my adults done at the same time. I tried to get a couple of group shots. Well…we all know how those turn out 🙂 haha. But atleast they are cuties all the same. And I was thrilled that they were all heart clear.

If anyone wants to check up on my dogs, please feel free to go to www.ofa.org and look up “Kazuri” (or “Kaszuri” for James, Lockestar for Sirius and a few dogs are under LoKazuri Star as I co-bred a few litters) and all my dogs will come up. <3

Sibling love

Summer (Kazuri’s Sweet Summer Kisses) and Watson (Kazuri’s Time To Solve A Mystery) were both at the heart clinic today and I couldnt help taking photos of them. But like typical cavaliers, they closed their eyes, and pulled weird faces and kissed each other. How many photos does it take to get a cute photo of siblings?? HAHA.

FrankIE – Kazuri’s Go Fly A Kite

Sometimes we raise up a puppy or two from a litter hoping they will turn out the way we hope they will. We kept 2 brothers from our Ben x Emmy litter to see how they would grow up. Now that they are closer to 6 months, one is starting to nudge out the other, and since we don’t need two boys in our breeding program with the same exact pedigree, we decided we could let Mr Franklin go to his forever home.

He is a super sweet. A total love bug. But as you can see in the photos, he hams it up for playing with toys as well. I have only had him here since yesterday afternoon, and he gets along with everyone in our pack well. He hasn’t lifted a leg or pottied on anything (long may that continue) and his crate was dry this morning. We are off to a good start.

I know who ever gets this sweet little fellow, will be lucky indeed. I am offering him to families I think he will be well suited to, so please no enquiries.

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

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.

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

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.

Please note for any new enquiries, that I have approximately a 12-18 month + wait time for puppies at this time.
