It was such a glorious day today, we decided to take the beagle puppies outside for some fun in the sunshine. They weren’t sure of the grass on their toes for about 10 seconds and then they loved it.
Phoenix is their favorite “big sister” and the feeling is mutual – any opportunity she can to play with them, she takes it. So, they all wrestled and enjoyed time in the sun today together. <3 We didnt want to risk the eagles today by giving them the run of the whole yard.
I am so very proud of Truman – Kazuri’s Struck By The Truth with LockeStar, CGC at the Cook Inlet Kennel club show! He won Winners Dog/Best Of Winners from the 9 to 12mo class for a 4pt major, then Best Of Breed over 3 specials bumping up to 5pts! Thank you Judge Timothy Catterson for seeing such potential in our young boy!
Special thank you to Truman’s co-owners Alisha Lockleer and Susan Lockleer for seeing the potential in him when he was just a pup, and for taking Truman to Alaska this weekend and showing him so well.
A huge thanks again to Zoelea Jones Vey for her amazing hospitality towards them and our dogs, for the second year in a row, making it not only about dog shows, but about visiting friends and just having a grand time! I wish I wasn’t on puppy watch and could have been there – maybe next year!
Brianna (my daughter) decided to take Sirius in the Jrs ring this weekend at the Cavaliers of Puget Sound (COPS) dog shows at Puyallup Kennel Club. She also took him into the Breed ring. Sirius responds so well to her – he watches her intently and just loves her.
To our amazement and thrill, Sirius and Brianna won the first (and only) Award of Merit under esteemed breeder judge Mrs. Cindy Huggins! <3 What a win indeed! <3
I really hope they continue – they could go so far together.
We are thrilled to announce that Paris got a clear MRI Scan this weekend.
It was wonderful news for our breeding program and all of her puppies.
SM/CM are polygenic – this means that the genes can be hidden through multiple generations and pop up unexpectedly. However, we can use this tool as information moving forward in our breeding program and hopefully make the best decisions for healthy pups in the future.
While Alisha and Susan were away getting Paris MRI scanned, we were on puppy duty for Flame and Penny and their puppies. Of course, I had to take them outside for some quick photos. They are 6.5 weeks old and so sweet.
I think a couple of them are still available and so if you are interested in one, please contact Alisha through: https://anyeazi.wixsite.com/lockestarcavaliers
I decided to do a final photo shoot with Paris’ puppies also. One has already gone to her forever home (Blen girl #2) and so I wanted to quickly get the rest in the studio before we missed out for the rest.
It sure has been fun to watch these guys grow up. James and Paris did well.
