Mia and Riker’s puppies arrive

We are so thrilled to announce, after 3 missed attempts at trying to get her pregnant, that Miss Mia had 4 healthy puppies this morning. It seemed all she needed was a young boy in person 🙂 LOL.

**Please note that these puppies are being raised with my very wonderful and super capable co-breeders Mike and Karen down in Sacramento. I am grateful as doing 3 litters and 15 puppies would be a little much. 🙂 We truly didnt think all 3 litters would take. But I am so grateful all the same.

Congratulations Riker on your first puppies. <3

Here they are:

Boy 1: 11oz

Boy 2: 11.3oz

Girl 1: 8.7oz

Girl 2: 11.6oz

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.

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. 🙂

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

Girl 1 – 9.07oz

Girl 2 – 11.2oz

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.

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.

Emmy’s beagle pups play outdoors

Emmy’s pups are now 6 weeks old – I cant believe it. They are enjoying the outdoors more and more now. Karen sent me these pictures so I just had to share them <3

** 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.

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.

Emmy’s babies are growing

Karen sent me a couple of cute pictures of the chubby babies this morning so I couldn’t help but share them. They are clearly thriving under Emmy and the Kurtzner’s wonderful care. I am so very thankful.

Once again, I dont know if any of these puppies are available. I will contact families as soon as I know. We will not know until they are closer to 7-8 weeks and we can assess their conformation. Thank you for understanding.

We welcome Emmy’s Beagle Puppies

My co-breeder’s ( who live in Sacramento) and I are proud to announce that Emmy’s litter arrived safe and sound. This litter is particularly special as it was conceived with 22 year old frozen semen from a dog that passed away many years ago – Ben – BIS BISS Kahootz Chase Manhattan. I am amazed at how technology can help us preserve DNA these days. Ben is a very well known dog in the beagle world and I am proud to be able to bring this old pedigree back into my pedigree and all that Ben has to offer.

Baby 1 was a Girl – 7.4 oz
Baby 2 was another girl – 8.1oz
Baby #3 was a little boy – 7.7oz
Baby #4 was another boy – 8.2oz
Baby #5 was another girl – 8.8oz
Baby #6 was another boy – 10.3oz
We got a surprise 7th baby – a huge girl weighing an even 11oz

We had thought she was just having 6, so she surprised us with a bonus #7 🙂 4 girls and 3 boys 🙂 Nice job Ben and Emmy <3 Mom and babies are all doing well. Emmy is a wonderful mother and the report is that the puppies are all vigorous and strong. I am so thankful.

At this stage I have no idea if any of these puppies will be available – we are going to take our time with this litter since the bloodline is one we have waited so long for. Thank you for understanding.
