My handsome Beau

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 cavalier pups are 7 weeks

Charlotte’s babies are continuing to do well. they are exploring more and more and gaining so much confidence in new things. they can now navigate a few stairs and are more than happy to walk on the uneven teeter totter as part of their play. These things help with confidence building and making them well adjusted to their new life as they go home.

We introduced them to all our big dogs, who love them dearly. I am so happy to have a pack of adults, including an unfixed male, who are all gentle on babies. The babies can play with them and learn lessons from adults that arent just mom, which makes their learning so rich.

Enjoy the latest updated photos. I dont know how many more photos of them sitting i will be able to get as they are so wiggly. 🙂

*please note that these puppies are not available at this time*

Nick Wins BISS at MAHA

Oh my gosh!! I’m speechless!!

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

The beagle pups are 3 weeks old

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. 🙂

*please note that none of these pups are available at this time*

Nick gets his 2nd BIS

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!

Nick gets two Group placements his first weekend as a special

I am truly floating on cloud 9 after this weekend. It is the kind of weekend breeders dream of. I loved Nick as a puppy and had some high hopes for him but to see it come true is something else.

There is more to being a group placer than just being “pretty”. They have to be able to stay confident amongst all the other breeds of dogs and not feel intimidated. They need to be able to sit around for hours in their crate waiting for their ring time, and then be “on” when it’s their turn. They need to be okay with all the travel and change of venues as they go from show to show. Some dogs prefer to be homebodies, others thrive on the change. You don’t know if your dog is going to love showing until you start working with them. Nick LOVES it. You just have to watch the videos of him and you can see how much.

Here is how the Strawberry Classic weekend went for Nick (now CH Kazuri’s All I Want For Christmas).

Nick went Winners Dog and Best of Winners on Friday under Mrs Sulie Greendale-Paveza for a 4 point major to finish his CH title with 3 majors and 17 points.

We moved him up to the “Breed” as a champion on Saturday and for his first day as a “Special” he won the Breed (over several specials – one of whom is currently the #1 dog in the USA) under Ms. JoAnne Buehler. Mrs Buehler was also our Hound group judge and we won a Group 3 under her! WOW! There were some beautiful dogs in that ring!

On Sunday Nick won the breed again judge Mr. Raymond V. Filburn Jr. he then went on to win a Hound group 1 under Mr Filburn!! Oh my gosh!! To say I was blown away was an understatement!

I am so thankful to these judges who found that Nick was a quality dog in the lineup of such quality hounds. We have our first Grand CH points and our first points towards All breed and Breed ranking. Something I have never even thought of before. This is all new territory for me. <3 I am excited to see what this new adventure brings.

This link is the hound group where Nick got his group 3 (it was televised that day). He is on at 21:30 if you want to see him.

Emmy’s pups are 7 weeks

This is the first time attempting stacks with Emmy and Ben’s pups. Stacking is how we start to look their their structure – the angle of their shoulders, the length of their upper arm, the angle of their rear, their topline. The stack doesn’t tell us everything as some pups get nervous up here, but it’s a nice place to start.

I am SO pleased at how these pups have turned out. Using semen that was 22 years old was a gamble, and to get such beautiful pups to choose from, feels like a gift. <3

Thank you for your interest in my puppies and breeding program. At this stage I don’t know if any of these puppies will be available as I will start assessing them around week 7/8 to see who will stay in my breeding program, and I have a wait list already. I thank you for your patience and understanding. I do understand how hard it is to wait.

If you want to be considered for a puppy, please look on my “puppy page” for all the information you need about my breeding plans, FAQs, and a questionnaire to fill out. Thanks, Sarah

Kiss and Denny’s pups are 6 weeks today

The puppies are enjoying small times outside more and more. We don’t take them outside very much – not only because it’s still a bit cold, but also because it’s not super safe for them as we live on a lake with eagles – so we stand out there and supervise their playtime very closely.

Phoenix loves playtime with the babies so much – as you can see below, the feeling is mutual. She has just turned one, but she is very gentle with them. She has her mom Arrow’s beautiful temperament.

I did their individual pictures outdoors again this week. Enjoy <3

Maddy’s pups are 8 weeks & Vixen’s pups are 11 weeks

The puppies are growing about as quickly as the temperatures are dropping – fall in the PNW is certainly here. The puppies dont seem to notice though as they play in the yard and enjoy being outside each day.

My poor plants are squashed and flattened by all the games of catch and tag that happen over them, but I cant even be mad with how cute they all are.

I cant help but think this is the final time Maddy’s 5 will be together before Bepper (now Ella), Api (now Bradley) and Gelly (now Poppy) will be going to their new homes.

The homes that Cottonz and Wistor had lined up, have fallen through.

However, I am looking for guardian homes for them. This means that the couple or family will co-own with me and allow me to show the dog to CH title (at my expense) and one day she will have a litter of puppies before being spayed. They are not available as just pets. If you think you are interested in meeting me and talking about this kind of partnership/relationship, please feel free to email me.

Vixen and Payton’s puppies are six weeks old

Vixen’s puppies are 6 weeks. I can not believe they are already this age – although when I look at all the things they can do, it makes sense. They love their tunnel and their mini slide and teeter totter. We took them away to Seaside this weekend and because of traffic the drive took 4 hours instead of 2.5 – they didnt make a peep in the car – I suspect they will make great travelers. 🙂

I took them to my photography studio today so I could do photos. They walked out of the crate as if they owned the place. I love their confidence. <3 It’s hard to think I might only have a few weeks or a month left with them.

Enjoy the latest pictures of them. I do enjoy taking them (even if they are super wiggly).
