PUppy play Out-takes

I love watching my puppies play – they are a constant source of joy and laughter. I wanted to share a couple of out-takes that I happened to catch this week and share the joy.

The little faded tri boy colliding with my little 6 month old cavalier Summer. No cavaliers or beagles were injured in this 🙂

My other out-take was Miss “Katherine” from my Vixen x BJ litter – she was trying to jump onto the back of a chair, but she mis-calculated. Well, you can see the results 🙂

Just like the first image, she was just fine and dandy – but it made for a good giggle for me.

Have a great day everyone!

The Beagle Puppies look a little Different – But equally as cute.

So, this week has been full of changes. Most of Vixen and Madison’s babies have gone to their new homes. The only girl we have left is “Katherine” from Vixen, who will go to her forever home next Tuesday.

Yesterday, I drove to Southern Oregon, to meet up with my co-breeders Mike and Karen who live in Sacramento. They have kindly been raising Mia’s litter for me, so I wouldn’t go grey-haired raising 15 puppies on my own. So, we met up so we could go over them in person. Toby, the dark tri boy went to his forever home in Medford OR and I brought the two girls and faded tri boy home with me, so they can go to their forever homes up here.

So, our puppy pack looks a little different, but so very cute. Since Madison and Mia are sisters, these guys are cousins, and actually aunts/uncle to “Katherine” since Mia is Vixen’s mom. (Did you get all that family connection? 🙂 ). It’s been fun getting to know their little personalities.

Enjoy the photos I took of them tonight as they played in the yard.

Mia’s babies turn 7 weeks

It’s been a while since I have posted about Mia’s litter – mainly because they are not being raised with me, and so I dont get to see much of them since they are in California. But today I got to see some stacked pictures of them – they are so beautiful. <3 Riker and Mia did so well. They are 7 weeks old and looking wonderful. We are making our final selections about them. You can see Mike and Karen dont give them blog names – just descriptions 🙂 HA!

Wagon Photos – The Last Picture Of The Beagle Babies Together

Some people know, and other’s dont – I am a photographer as my “real” job – I photograph newborn babies and families primarily. So, I dabble with my puppies as a little fun on the side.

I decided to do something adorable tonight – I gathered my kids and had them help me – and it worked – Oh my gosh – what a way to commemorate these beautiful babies. I am gonna miss them that’s for sure. <3

Stacked photos of Madison & Vixen’s pups – 8 weeks Old

Stacking puppies is one of the ways we get to analyse a dog’s structure and balance. We get to compare them to one another. We get to see their angles and how well their neck and shoulder flow into their backs. We look at their muzzle shape, ear set, heads. We also watch them move – side gait and coming and going. All things that matter to a breeding program but not much to a pet family. These are photos of the babies – they were not being very co-operative, but you get the idea 🙂

Madison & Vixen’s beagle pups are 7 weeks and love playing outside

The beagle puppies are growing up and I am enjoying the final time I have with them. Their personalities are coming out and it’s fun to see who is first to try something new and who waits to watch others.

They play in the yard daily and today and I went out in with my camera and took some pictures. 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.

Enjoy the fun – and the wrestling <3

Thank you for your interest in my breeding program. I am just starting to make offers for the puppies as I have decided which pups might stay in my breeding program.

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

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.

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.

Madison & Vixen’s beagle pups turn 5 weeks

5 weeks – when did that happen? Woah. They are bone-a-fide mini dogs now – running around and talking (aka growling) and playing together and with toys. They love the mini slide and teeter totter. We have combined the two litters together so to make sure we don’t mix them up, I have put collars on Vixen’s litter. While their markings are different, I don’t want to chance mixing them up till I am completely sure I know who is who. Some of them look very similar 🙂

This week’s photos I did outside – their first outside outing – they were a little nervous but mostly curious and so getting them to sit still was quite a challenge. I can see my days of getting headshots are numbered. 😛 HA! But that’s okay – there is a big world out here to explore. This week they will play in the yard properly for the first time. That will be a big adventure for them.
