To be a good breeder of quality dogs, we must keep, evaluate, and continuously add quality bloodlines to our breeding program. We like to keep a few of our pick puppies to monitor their growth and development. Some will eventually fit into our breeding program, but as we only breed the best, some also will not make the cut.
Sometimes, rather than keep these pups ourselves, we will place these pick puppies in “guardian homes” so we can watch them grow and health test them and make the decision whether or not to breed them when the time comes.
Both beagles and cavalier king charles spaniels need to be a part of the family to develop their full potential. That is also why we have a guardian program.
We are seeking out the perfect local (within 30 miles of Woodinville WA) for one of our beagle puppies. She is known on the blog as “Shiloh”. An outgoing, social and very sweet girl.
The puppies are all so wiggly now, it’s hard to get individual photos of them. 🙂 I might try again in my studio again next week. But, they get out in the garden daily for playtime in the garden so I love to document their play sessions. They have so much fun together.
Enjoy these photos of both litters plus our adults. They all get along so well.
*please note that none of the puppies are available at this time*
With the cavalier puppies getting bigger, they get more and more time outside playing with the pack. The beagles are so gentle with them – I have an un-neutered male who is super gentle with them which makes me so proud of the temperaments of the dogs I produce.
Enjoy these photos of the babies at play in the garden with the big dogs. 🙂 *just a reminder that these puppies are not available at this time*
Beau was my pick boy from my Madison x Buddy litter. I tried hard not to fall in love with him but I couldnt help myself.
We were doing a major home re-model and had to move out and so Mike and Karen said that many of our pack members could live with them for a few months. As soon as it was done, I drove down to California to pick them all up.
Beau is as sweet at 11 months as he was at 12 weeks when I dropped him off. I am excited to have some shows open up in WA so I can show him.
Introducing Beau – Kazuri’s All I Need Is Love and Cake.
The Christmas magic continues for us in North Carolina today as at the Mid-Atlantic Hound Association of Central North Carolina, Nick (MBIS GCHB Kazuri’s All I Want For Christmas) went Best of Variety and Best In Group under judge Mr Neil T. McDevitt.
In a lineup of beautiful beagles and then some of the top hounds in the USA, we were so honored Nick was found amongst them.
Congratulations to all the other winners today!
This photo includes Jon Woodring, Carol Herr, Mike Kurtzner and Cassie Miller. Nick wouldn’t be here without their amazing kennels and hard work in the great dogs that are behind him and for that I will be eternally grateful. Of course, there are other kennels behind him too, but these are the ones in the photo. Nick is the 3rd in line of “Truman” (BIS BISS Lanbur Quest For The Best) and his kids/grandkids to have won here at MAHA.
Nick is now MBIS BISS GCHB Kazuri’s All I Want For Christmas. <3
Our beagle puppies are 3 weeks old. We started them on some solid food this week and they LOVED it. While they are still enjoying the ‘well fed” life of mostly eating and sleeping, they are happy to sausage their way to the little bowls and eat a little ground beef mixed with some goats milk 🙂
This week we also gave them a potty box and I am pleased to say that they are starting to use it. Mama Allie is now enjoying nights off by herself and the babies are one step closer to a little independence.
I love my daily cuddles with them – they are so incredibly sweet.
Enjoy the latest pictures of them. They had just eaten and were ready for a nap. 🙂

West Virginia today, Nick (BIS GCHB All I Want For Christmas) went BOV and Hound Group 1 under judge Mr Raymond V. Filburn Jr.
He then went on to his second Best In Show under judge Ms Joanne Buehler!!! Woot woot!! Judge Buhler not only finished Nick but also gave him his first group placement. what an honor to now receive a Best under her.
Nick seems to be making all my Christmas wishes come true – and more!
Thank you Mike and Karen for continuing to present him so well and to the judges for finding him worthy. Congratulations to the other winners! I know he had great competition out there!
Oh my gosh – how did we get to halfway? These little babies are tiny dogs for sure. They are eating 3 full meals a day and are playing and pretend to be tough (but not really – haha). We are giving them more simulation with the tiny stairwell and balance ball and they are tackling them with enthusiasm. We are seeing their personalities emerging.
I took them to my photography studio this week for my favorite portrait shots of each litter in my blue armchair. I just love the way they look against the deep hue. The photos where they look a little unsure, it is only because they wanted to be on my lap instead of the chair.
*please note these babies are still not available at this time*
Archie – he is our most outgoing – always up for a new adventure and definitely leaps before he looks. But make no mistake, he also wants to cuddle up and snuggle on your lap.
Victoria – she is our most shy. Once she has observed and tried something she is all in. But she would rather wait and watch and figure things out first. She is sweet and loving and a little more laid back.
Fergie – She is sweet with a lot of spice. She is almost as outgoing as her brother. She loves to be nosy and know exactly what is going on at all times. We laugh that she has FOMO.
Kate – She is somewhere in the middle of all her siblings – not the most outgoing but not shy. She loves to play and loves to snuggle. Always quick to come when we call “puppy” and always finishes her own bowl of food and others. 🙂 This girl can eat 🙂
I am thrilled to announce Kazuri’s third homebred beagle Champion for 2021 is Kazuri’s Feeling The Siren’s Call (aka Echo).
At the Nisqually Kennel Club in Elma WA, she went WB/BOW yesterday under judge Mr Hal T. Beirmann. Today she went WB/BW/BOS under judge Ms Robin K Riel. Thank you to these judges for finding our girl this weekend.
I am so thankful to Tammie Wilcox for showing her when I had to work. Echo is Nick’s littermate as due to COVID was shown only a few weekends. I am very proud of her finishing today.
Now, she will work on other titles like Rally and perhaps some obedience or even agility titles. We also hope she will prove herself in the whelping box when the time is right too.
Allie is doing a wonderful job raising her beagle puppies. Almost too well. They are chubby and well fed and all they want to do is eat and sleep. They really don’t want to do anything else. HA! They all have their eyes open and I see we might have some convincing to do that there is a world out here ready for them to explore. I think they feel their bed is way to cozy and warm for now.
Enjoy the pictures. They are really head shots as all they wanted to do was curl up – so funny.
