My sweet cavalier puppies are 7 weeks today. They are fun loving little explorers. On the sunny days we take them out into the garden to explore and play. The problem is, they don’t want to sit still anymore for close ups. So, you will just have to enjoy pictures of them enjoying the sun and exploring the garden with the big dogs and playing with mama Kiss (aka Paris).
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.
If you want to be considered for a future Kazuri puppy, please look on my “puppy page” for all the information you need about my breeding plans, FAQs, and a questionnaire to fill out. Thanks, Sarah
With every birth I learn something new. Usually I start taking the dam’s temperature about 4/5 days before she is due to watch for a significant drop which tells me she is 24hours from starting labor. This happened on Thursday morning (the 13th Feb). I got up every 2 hours through the night to check on her for 4 nights – she started labor on Sunday night around 11:30, and puppies started arriving around 10am on Monday morning. Someone once told me “they don’t read the rulebook” – and that was certainly true for this. But I am glad she was able to have them safe and sound at home rather than go in for the planned C-section which is what we would have done Monday afternoon.
Baby #1 was born at 9:58 – a boy – 5.1oz.
Baby #2 was a girl, born at 11:12 – 6.3oz.
Baby #3 was a boy born at 12:03 and he was 6.5oz.
Baby #4 was another boy born at 12:49 and 5.7oz.
Baby #5 was 6.6oz and was a girl born at 2:23.
Baby #6 was born at 3.52 – another girl 6.7oz.
Our final baby was a boy born at 4:14 weighing 7.6oz.
Mom and babies are all vigorous and doing well. I am not sure who is available at this stage and will start contacting families as soon as I do 🙂 Thank you.
EDIT: On Wednesday night, one of the little boys started to crash and we couldn’t save him and he gained his angel wings. This is the heartbreaking side of breeding. One that cant be avoided, but death is part of life. He was loved and treasured and cuddled right till the end. <3
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.
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.
The pups are 7 weeks today and are spending more time playing outdoors. they have all mastered the stairs and love exploring the garden. I guess its time for us to clean up after the big windstorm aye 🙂
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 🙂
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.
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.
