Sirius attends his first AKC dog show

We co-own Sirius (Arrow’s son from her first litter) with Alisha from Lockestar Cavaliers.   Alisha took him to his first official dog show this past weekend to play at the Puyallup Dog show.    He made us proud and got some good ring experience.

Way to go Alisha and Sirius. 🙂

Baby it’s cold outside

Brrrrrr ~ Woodinville Seattle isn’t usually super cold, but weeks of blow freezing temperatures has meant that the lake we live on has frozen.   We have been enjoying walking on the ice (yes I promise we drilled holes to make sure it was thick and safe to do so).

Beagle Puppies Pedigree ~ AKC registered.

We are very proud of each breeding we do.  We carefully plan out each one, looking at the strengths and weaknesses of our girls and find a stud that compliments her.   This breeding is what we call a line breeding as we are doubling back on “Truman”, hoping to solidify everything we like in him, into our bloodlines.  Only time will tell 🙂

Here is the puppy’s pedigree.

Introducing Mia and Truman’s puppies

We are so proud to announce that Mia and Truman are parents to 4 healthy tri babies – two boys and two girls.  Born Christmas Eve – so the babies have Christmas nicknames.  Kris, Rue (aka Rudolf), Eve and Dancer.

Unfortunately, one of the puppies got stuck and so Mia ended up with a C-section, but she is recovering well and all the puppies are healthy and strong.

These sweet babies are being raised with co-breeders Mike and Karen Kurtzner in California.  I get to watch them grow from afar this time 🙂

Rest in Peace Cooper

Cooper was the kind of dog everyone wants. Gentle, calm and just a solid part of our family.   Anyone who met him loved him because he was just such a sweet old soul.

This morning, he passed away unexpectedly.  We had noticed he wasn’t himself this morning – he vomited up his breakfast and was very wobbly on his legs.  But we had no idea how sick he must have been.  True to his gentle nature, I have to wonder how much he hid from us – he wouldn’t have wanted us to fuss.

A big hole is going to be left in our home.  He was a teacher for the puppies that came into our home.  We loved taking him hiking and camping.

Rest in Peace sweet Cooper man.  We love you

Cavaliers are 10 weeks – and 2 are for sale

Well, the day had to come *sniff sniff* when we had to make decisions on who we grow up.  Right now, it looks like we will raise Sirius up and see if he has potential as our next show dog.

That means that “Teddy” and “Albus” are ready for their forever homes.   We haven’t advertised them as we wanted to watch them grow first.

Teddy is full of fun – he is bold and goofy.  We believe he will be a perfect companion for a family with children or even someone who wanted to dabble in agility as he will be up for anything.

Albus is sweet and gentle – he is a true lap dog and loves nothing more than to be with you all the time.  He will make someone a perfect companion.

10 weeks-2 10 weeks-7 10 weeks-8

If you are interested in either of these precious dogs, we would love to talk to you.

Both parents have been extensively health checked and are clear for hearts, eyes, hips, patellas and both parents were MRI scanned revealing no CM or SM.

These puppies will be sold as companions for $2000 (US) on a neuter contract.  They have been raised in our home with kids and other dogs.  They have been vet checked, de-wormed, first shots and micro-chipped.  They are ready to go to their forever home anytime.

Cavalier puppies turn 9 weeks ~ AKC Woodinville Seattle

These not so little cavaliers have stolen our hearts – they are so friendly and sweet with a healthy dose of puppy mixed in.  It is hard to believe that they are almost ready to go to their forever homes soon.

We call them little oreos this week – we have been binding their tummies to try and encourage their belly button hernias to close. While not a problem, cosmetically it would be nice to have them closed up.  🙂

Cavalier puppies turn 8 weeks ~ AKC Woodinville Seattle

The cavalier puppies are 8 weeks so it is time for evaluations – to get a better idea we took headshots, side profiles and stacked pictures (both wet and dry) to see toplines and angles.

We are very pleased with all 3 boys.  we have our eye on which one we might grow up for a few months as a show hopeful.  We actually hope more than one will end up in a show home.

Next evaluation will be done in 2 weeks time at 10 weeks.  Which one do you like best? 🙂

Cavalier King Charles Puppies are 6 weeks

This weeks, Arrow’s co-owner Alisha, from Lockestar Cavaliers came over to look the boys over.  So far she (and I) are very excited about how these boys are turning out.  Whether they end up in the show ring or as a family pet, they will be beautiful dogs.

We took them outside for a play – here are some of the highlights.
