Summer gets Reserve WB at COPS

It was a wonderful day in Puyallup today. At the Cavaliers of Puget Sound specialty, Summer (Kazuri’s Sweet Summertime Kisses) won her class and then went on to winning reserve to the 5 point major.

I was very proud of her as it was literally her 2nd time stepping in the ring (her 1st time was this time last year at the COPS show).

She was a little shy at first but by the time we went into the winners circle she found her groove.

It was a fab specialty – thank you to everyone for their hard work (Susan Lockleer – I am looking at you) and to the judge Dr. Vandra Huber who stepped in at the last minute to judge for us (the judge who we were supposed to have had an emergency and went into hospital) and found my sweet girl.

I also showed Phoenix (Kazuri’s On The Wings Of Love TKN) in the competitive BBE class, and she didn’t place today, but I still love her โค Congratulations to all the winners today.

Heart Testing Day

Before I send any cavalier litter home, I try and get their hearts checked by a cardiologist and their eyes checked by an ophthalmologist. I just think it is good practice for me to know they are going home clear – even if they develop something later on in life, we knew what their baseline was.

I got Charlotte’s babies done and took the time to get some of my adults done at the same time. I tried to get a couple of group shots. Well…we all know how those turn out ๐Ÿ™‚ haha. But atleast they are cuties all the same. And I was thrilled that they were all heart clear.

If anyone wants to check up on my dogs, please feel free to go to www.ofa.org and look up “Kazuri” (or “Kaszuri” for James, Lockestar for Sirius and a few dogs are under LoKazuri Star as I co-bred a few litters) and all my dogs will come up. <3

Sibling love

Summer (Kazuri’s Sweet Summer Kisses) and Watson (Kazuri’s Time To Solve A Mystery) were both at the heart clinic today and I couldnt help taking photos of them. But like typical cavaliers, they closed their eyes, and pulled weird faces and kissed each other. How many photos does it take to get a cute photo of siblings?? HAHA.

Cavalier of Puget Sound Specialty Shows

Because of COVID, we have all been starved of going to going to shows. The State-wide restrictions have made it almost impossible all year to get together.

The Cavalier of Puget Sound (COPS) show, which are usually held mid year, were postponed till this weekend in the hopes that the numbers would be smaller. They were able to join with the shows at Richfield WA and have back to back specialty shows the day before the All breed shows that were happening on the weekend.

So, Phoenix and Summer and I, met Susan and Alisha from Lockestar cavaliers, who brought along Sirius, James and Christopher, and we had a day full of fun with our fellow cavalier fanciers. There were rules of course – stay 6ft apart and wear a mask at all times, but we all complied – anything to be able to do what we love ๐Ÿ™‚

Our brilliant judges were Mrs Patricia Hastings and Mr Gary Stiles.

The second COPS show was dedicated to the late Nancy Rice Waggoner who passed away earlier this year. She was incredibly dedicated to the sport of cavaliers – what I mean by that is what she didn’t just see them as “pretty” lap dogs, but saw them as capable working dogs also, and many of her dogs worked on other titles as well – they got therapy titles so she could give back to others and agility titles so they could show they could move and keep their brains active. She tried to breed to the standard winning many accolades over the years – Best of Breeds, Group Placements, Best in Shows – her hard work showed in her placements. And she was a really lovely person. I always remember her smile greeting everyone at every show I went to. I was glad this show was dedicated to her memory.

Here are some of the many wonderful memories from the show – obviously not everything is here – thank you to Becky Smith’s husband Steve for taking photos ringside.

Charlotte – (LoKazuri Fourth In Line)

Charlotte doesn’t bear the “Kazuri” affix because she was the result of a combined breeding between myself and Alisha and Susan Lockleer from Lockestar cavaliers. We felt it was only fitting to combine our affixes to show it was a joint effort.

Miss Charlotte doesn’t live with me, she lives with a guardian home (a home where she is, for the most part, a beloved pet – but when the time comes, if she passes her health tests they will allow me to have a litter or two from her). So, when she was visiting this week, I took the opportunity to get some updated photos of her.

She is just shy of her 2nd birthday. <3

Phoenix – Kazuri’s On the Wings of Love TKN

Miss Phoenix is now 14 months and I haven’t put any recent pictures of her on my website so I figured it was about time. She has a funny quirk that when I am trying to take her picture, she blinks – a lot. So, these aren’t the best pictures of her, but they are better than nothing ๐Ÿ™‚ <3

I love this sweet, intelligent little girl.

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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)

Intermediate Title (TKI)

Our final week with Kiss and Denny’s pups together

I can hardly believe that this week is here. After all the weeks raising and loving on these precious little ones, it is time for some to start leaving the nest and going to their forever homes since they are almost 10 weeks. This week’s photos are bittersweet for that reason so I will post lots of them – I took them playing in the yard – real puppy life – the fun of life outside the pen ๐Ÿ™‚

What an honor it has been to be their first momma and get to love on them these 10 weeks. And now I get to pass the torch on to wonderful families who will love them just as much. I know they will be spoiled rotton. Thankfully for my heart, only two leave this weekend. And, one, Eliza – now called Summer, is staying here at Kazuri, so that does make things a little less painful.

So without further ado, please enjoy photos one last time of Earl Grey (formerly known as Hamilton), Ginger (formerly known as Angelica), Watson (formerly known as Aaron) and Lily (formerly known as Peggy). <3

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

If you want to be considered for a puppy, please look on my โ€œpuppy pageโ€ for all the information you need about my breeding plans, FAQs, and a questionnaire to fill out. Thanks, Sarah

Phoenix gets her Trick Title

My daughter Bri has a special bond with our dogs. When she wants to work with them (she is 13 after all) ๐Ÿ™‚ , they hang on every command she gives them.

She and Phoenix, our little Ruby Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, worked on Phoenix’s Novice Trick title and easily got it. Now I think she should go for her Intermediate Title – don’t you?

Kiss and Denny’s cavalier puppies are 8 weeks

The cavalier puppies are 8 weeks today. I took them to the studio for some more official pictures since they don’t seem to want to sit still very long in the garden – not that I blame them – it’s very interesting exploring out there in the world ๐Ÿ™‚

Today they visited the cardiologist Dr Woodfield and got the “all clear” on their hearts. I hope to also be able to get their eyes checked before they go home, but their hearts were the most important thing to me. I am so thrilled the results were as I hoped.

This month marks my final few weeks with these sweet babies. I really have to narrow down my final choices and decide who is staying so families can begin to plan for their precious little one to arrive. I am so thankful for their patience.

The puppies are spending more time outdoors on the deck now. They love having time with the pack and playing with all the big dogs. They also got new fast release collars so they can get used to the feeling of something around their necks. They really are growing up.

Thank you for your interest in my puppies and breeding program. At this stage all of these puppies will be sold from my current wait list. I have just started assessing them to see who will stay in my breeding program. I thank you for your patience and understanding as I wait to make my final offers out to families. I do understand how hard it is to wait.
