Newborn Beagle Puppies

I always like to take pictures of my pups when they are 1 day old (and then every week if i can to document their growth). With Maddy and Vixen both out taking a dinner and potty break, I stole the opportunity to take quick photos of them in the whelping box – nothing fancy – just threw a white blanket over a dog bed and snapped some pictures. 🙂

Vixen’s pups are just a few hours old which is why they look a little skinny/dehydrated – I promise that Vixen is taking wonderful care of them and they have been nursing on and off since she got home from the vet. I expect her milk to come in quickly. Please also dont be concerned about the red on two of Vixen’s boy’s head’s – we marked the two that were most fluid filled after birth so we could keep an extra eye on them – so it’s nail polish, not blood you are seeing.

Enjoy these pictures of the babies. I am still coming up with the litter themes so they will get their blog names at 1 week i think. 🙂

Thank you for your interest in my breeding program. I wont be making offers to any families till closer to 6-7 weeks when I can assess their structure and temperament, and decide which will be staying in my breeding program.

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

Vixen and BJ welcome their beagle pups

The last time Vixen had puppies, she had some trouble during labor and delivery. With such precious cargo on board I didnt want to take any risks.

I was so happy I did. Dr Cindy said her uterus showed no signs of going into labor, and yet because we were on day 64, her placentas were all complete and starting to look “old” (whatever that means???) and as you will see her puppies were huge. So, why she didnt start labor on her own, I will never know, but I am thankful to God that we made the call to take them today. It was perfect timing.

Momma and babies are all perfectly well and Vixen has taken to her new babies wonderfully despite being a little groggy and sore after surgery. I am so grateful.

Meet her 5 beautiful BJ babies.

Madison x Buddy’s puppies arrive

After much consultation with my reproductive vet, Dr Cynthia Smith (from the Pet Doctor), we decided that if Madison hadn’t given birth by the 27th, we would take them via planned c-section as Vixen was due in the days after and she must have a c-section due to several getting stuck last time. I didnt want Madison to be whelping at the same time Vixen was needed in surgery.

The surgery went without a hitch and though Maddy is a little confused and sore, she loves her babies and is doing really well taking care of them.

So, without further ado, introducing the six newest Kazuri babies.

Boy 1 – 9.6oz

Boy 2 – 12.49oz

Boy 3 – 10.7oz

Boy 4 – 11.5oz

My sweet Mee-Mers

Mia (CH Foxtail’s Need For Speed TKN RATI) has lived with us since she was about 1. We heard that her breeder was going to place her as a pet and so I snapped her up. I already had her littermate Madison, but having a different type, meant I could double my odds – breeding the two girls to different types of boys and see what happens.

She is sweet and mellow – a lovely member of our home. We call her MooMe, MeeMee, Mee-Mers. She provided me with the beautiful Vixen and for that I will be forever grateful. I tried to breed her a 3 more times and every time she missed. So, as she approached six, i decided to run bloodwork which came back healthy, and try one last time and either way I would retire her. Lo and behold, she fell pregnant – you could have blown me over with a feather.

She has the most amazing family that she will retire with – they are eagerly awaiting her to finish up with her puppies so she can be spayed and live out her days on their couch. We will miss her deeply but it is so nice to know how loved she is going to be.

I did a quick photo shoot with her. Thank you to my 13 year old Brianna for her help in running around the yard with Mia and with camera work as I stacked her. The fun thing about these photos is she is days away from turning 6, and around 5 weeks pregnant – I love how much muscle tone she still has and how gorgeous her movement is still. <3 You can also see her belly starting to grow. <3

Novice Trick Titles

Some of the family’s who have Kazuri dogs have been working on their Novice Trick Title.

What is that you ask? Well let me tell you. AKC has provided a fun way to bond and play with your dog. Usually you would go to an event and a moderator would watch you.

But with COVID-19, AKC has kindly opened up the rules to allow submissions via video. Each trick needs to be done twice on the video. At the Novice level, you can use treats. At the higher levels, only certain tricks can be “baited”, so your dog has to know your signals or instructions. You can read about it and watch videos on how to train your dog here: https://www.akc.org/sports/trick-dog/ They have a list of the tricks at the Novice level. I love that one of them is getting into their kennel 🙂 http://images.akc.org/pdf/trick_dog_novice.pdf If you are unsure what a trick means, you can look it up in the official guidelines here: http://images.akc.org/pdf/trick_eval_guide.pdf

Once your video is ready, submit this paperwork : http://images.akc.org/pdf/trick_dog_novice.pdf along with this form: https://s3.amazonaws.com/cdn-origin-etr.akc.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/20174058/Video-Verification-form.pdf?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=20200234_cgc_trick-dog-video-verification to the moderator LYDIA JOINER – lydiajoiner@yahoo.com If she determines that your tricks were good enough, she will sign the paperwork and send it back to you and then you email it to AKC with $25 and your dog has a Trick title or TKN by their name.

Here are some of the wonderful pups, bred here at Kazuri, who have worked on their TKN title since Covid-19 started. I am SO proud of each and every one of them and their owners. <3

Ruthie – Kazuri’s Loyal Friend TKN (at 7 months young)

Gracie – Kazuri’s Gracie TKN (2 years)

Rowan – LoKazuri Star Life Is But A Dream TKN TKI *combined breeding effort between myself and Lockestar cavaliers* (2 years old)

Ben and Emmy’s pups leave the nest to their new homes

Ben and Emmy’s pups were 10 weeks and ready to go to their new homes. Since they had been raised with my co breeders Mike and Karen in Sacramento California, where Emmy lives with them full time, I had to bring some of the puppies back to Washington so they could settle in their forever homes. I drove all the way south and collected 4 of them to bring back to WA so they could go to their forever homes. It was a very long day, but we made it.

It was rainy and wet so i didnt get to take a photo of all 4 of them, but the rain gave us a little break, so I went out for a little photoshoot with the two that were left while they ran around the yard. Miss Lilikoi and Mr Boy 1, who will be going to a fellow breeder in the USA (announcement will come later once she has made it) are so cute 🙂

We are raising up the other two boys to potentially show them ourselves. Honestly, I was thrilled with this whole litter – sometimes the genetics just clicks. Thankfully this was one of these times.

Thank you for your interest in my puppies and breeding program. These beagle puppies are all sold. I do have a waitlist for my next beagle litters already.

River

Sometimes we place older show dogs with families. We did that with River and through a series of events, found it wasn’t a good match for either him nor the family.

Please know that I do not begrudge the family – my job is to make a lifelong connection between a dog and their family and if that is not happening, then I am a breeder that will take their dog back.

So, I did. River came back and spent 2.5 months with me. In that time, I cherished my time with him. As a breeder, we don’t often get to have time with our adult dogs – to see how they turned out.

He was the “pick” of the litter, and had spent his show career with Mike and Karen in California, so apart from a couple of shows, I had not seen him much. Spending time with him made me appreciate all the things I had liked as a puppy, and know what a quality dog he was – not just physically, but mentally as well.

In one afternoon, we worked on his novice trick title. He got it 🙂 So, he is now CH Kazuri’s River of Dreams TKN. He is so food motivated, that he will do just about anything for a treat 🙂 It’s a bonus for sure.

I took some photos of him while he is here also. While he is neutered, I have 4 straws of semen for him, so I hope to one day bring him back into my bloodline again.

He has a new family looking at him now – and I hope that he has found his forever place to land. He, just like every dog, deserves a home where they are loved and cherished for who they are. <3

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.

No beagle pups in March

We are so sad to announce that Allie was pregnant, but yesterday we did an x-ray and found that she has lost the litter 🙁

To say that this is gut wrenching is an understatement. This is part of breeding for sure, but it doesn’t make it stink any less.

So, now we try and look to the future and what we will do next. Allie is fine. Going through the motions of a false pregnancy and was checked out thoroughly by out vet yesterday and was found to be healthy. So that is something to be grateful for.

Emmy’s beagle pups enjoy the outdoors for the first time

It was a beautiful sunny afternoon, so Mike and Karen decided to let the puppies have their first experience outdoors. The funny story is that they were way more interested in their momma Emmy than they were in the interesting sights and sounds and scents around.

Emmy is such a sweet, loving, kind mom. She takes it all in her stride – 7 puppies could be overwhelming, but not for her. What a rockstar momma.

** Just a reminder that these puppies are being raised with my co-breeders Mike and Karen in Sacramento California, so you cant visit them in Seattle unfortunately. I will be bringing them up at some point in April.
