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).

Madison and Walter’s puppies are 3 weeks old today

Maddy’s pups are 3 weeks today. They are big healthy chunky monkeys. They had their first taste of puppy mush today and they LOVED it – I will post pictures of that later. 🙂

They got a litterbox today also – they will start to learn how to use it over the coming weeks just as our previous litters have.

Enjoy the latest pictures of the babies

Penny and Flame’s Puppy’s Visit

Penny and Flame’s puppies came to visit me in the studio for some final pictures before they go to their new homes. A couple of them have already left, so really it’s just the puppies who are left. <3

They are just the sweetest bunch – we are so thrilled how they have turned out – pretty, healthy and with great temperaments.

We welcome new beagle puppies – Vixen is a mom

In the early hours of Monday the 29th, after a very long day and night of labor, Vixen started giving birth.

Vixen is an amazing mom. After she was done, she got straight to loving on them, cleaning them and nursing. Her instincts are so strong.

Puppy #1 was a little girl – 8.2 oz at 7:34am. She took a long time to be born and caused a bit of pain as her placenta wouldn’t come away and so I had to intervene and cut her free. I am thankful she is alive and thriving.

Puppy #2 was a little boy – 8.3oz at 8:01am. He was born quickly and without any trouble at all.

Baby #3 was another girl – a 9.1 oz tri who unfortunately got stuck at the head/shoulders. It took me and my son 20 mins to gently and firmly pull her free without hurting Vixen, but by the time she was out, she had suffocated. It was very upsetting and a deeply felt loss. This was around 9:10

We decided at this point that 2/3 puppies had gotten stuck, and I didnt want to take another chance. We put Vix and the pups in the car and headed to the vet for a C-section. Thank you to Dr Donna Sowder at Animal Hospital at Murphy’s Corner for being available to us!

While en route, another baby was born in the car – my son (14) whelped her for me. What a champ! 8.1 oz at 9:39am.

When we arrived at the vet, they decided we should try to have the other 2 naturally, and if we needed to have surgery, they would do that immediately. Vixen was given a shot of Oxy and we waited in the “quiet room”.

At 10:04 another little girl arrived. 8.5oz. Uneventful and easy birth. We were on the right track.

The final puppy born was another boy – he was 8.6oz and born at 11.10am. He took a bit of time as he was big, but didnt get stuck (thankfully).

After a quick x-ray to make sure that we were indeed finished, we headed home. Vixen settled in and she was happy.

These puppies are all spoken for. <3

Beagle pups are 9 weeks ~ final post before we say goodbye

This will be the final post of all the pups together as we will say goodbye to most of the litter later this week as they will be off to their forever homes.

Its bittersweet….

One or two of the boys will stay with co-breeders Mike and Karen to grow up and see if they will become show dogs.  But everyone else will be loved companions.  We are thankful to each incredible family who is adopting these guys.  We know they are so lucky to be going home with you.

Beagle Puppies are 6 weeks

The babies are 6 weeks old.  I can hardly believe it.  🙂  It snowed here in Seattle – yes – you read that right – snowed in November!!  so, the puppies first days in the grass were with little bits of snow.

They loved playing out in the grass and leaves and exploring the yard with the big dogs – and boy did they take a big nap afterwards!   I can see this is going to be a new daily activity for everyone 🙂

Enjoy xo

Beagle babies ~ 5 weeks

Time is now racing by.  The babies have starting sleeping through the night by themselves without Maddy and Maddy is feeding them less and less.  I guess those needle sharp teeth are starting to really hurt (I should know – owch!).

Their development is coming along leaps and bounds and we are loving their personalities emerging.

enjoy the final studio photos of them

First Stacking Attempt

Today I did my first attempt at stacking the beagle babies (4.5 weeks old).

This (for those not in the show world) gives us the ability to be able to see the structure of each puppy – how their forechest and angles look, their topline and head shape.  We will do this over the coming weeks and try and figure out which puppy/s will stay and grow up here at Kazuri, and which will go to their new forever companion home.

Stacking is new and confusing for them and I do it gently and keep it fun as i want the babies to think its a game to stand still.  I am learning myself, so these are not perfect by any means.

Beagle puppies turn 4 weeks old.

I travelled to NZ last week so the babies spent the week with a friend of mine.  While I was away, they grew so much.  They found their voice! They have little growls and howls.

They started solids this week and they love it so much. And they are walking with confidence, and playing together.

Enjoy this week’s photos <3
