Vixen – “feeling A Little Foxy”

Miss Vixen was born on Christmas Eve. She was born down at my co-breeders home in Sacramento CA as we were on sabbatical in New Zealand for 7 weeks, and knew we wouldn’t be in town to whelp and raise the litter. This is the reason she bears the initial Affix “Hailstorms” as well as “Kazuri”. 🙂

Her nicknames are “Vickle Pickle”, “Pickle dust”, “Pickle juice”, “Pixie” and “Dobby”. We always laugh that when she puts her ears back she looks just like Dobby the house elf. See if you can see it in the photos 🙂

She is a fun loving little beagle – I say little as she is about 12.5inches tall. She is our fence jumper, although she cracks us up by pretending every day that she can’t jump on the couch. We joke that she likes to be a baby when she is inside and a “big girl” outside.

She is our best swimmer and avid boater – she loves to be out on the lake and jumps from Paddle Boat to Paddle Board. She has even been known to dive off one and swim to another to get to the boat or board she wants. Lake life sure does look good on her.

I took photos of her today. She is 9 weeks post whelp, but she is looking pretty good. I didnt have time to groom her, so she is hairy, but you get the idea. We are about to do a home remodel and so she is going to have a little vacation back with Mike and Karen in California, so I wanted to take some pictures before she left. <3 Love my little Dobby Pickle.

Mia’s babies turn 7 weeks

It’s been a while since I have posted about Mia’s litter – mainly because they are not being raised with me, and so I dont get to see much of them since they are in California. But today I got to see some stacked pictures of them – they are so beautiful. <3 Riker and Mia did so well. They are 7 weeks old and looking wonderful. We are making our final selections about them. You can see Mike and Karen dont give them blog names – just descriptions 🙂 HA!

The beagle babies are 8 weeks

It’s hard to believe that 8 weeks ago these precious little ones were born. It has both flown by and felt like they have been here for a lifetime – is that weird? I adore these little ones – their fun little personalities and their unconditional love.

These are the final days with everyone being together for next week they will start leaving for their forever homes. They will always be family. Several I hope to show and so they will be part of my breeding program still. I know their new families will adore and love them as much as we do. <3

Enjoy photos of them playing outside tonight – my favorite images are my daughter rolling down the hill and the puppies chasing her. They truly LOVE the game of chase.

Thank you for your interest in my breeding program. I am sending out the final offers, but I believe these puppies are now all sold.

I have a waitlist and my current wait time is about 12 months – it could be more or less depending on circumstances. If you want to be on it, please go to my Puppy Page, for more information.

Madison & Vixen’s beagle pups are 7 weeks and love playing outside

The beagle puppies are growing up and I am enjoying the final time I have with them. Their personalities are coming out and it’s fun to see who is first to try something new and who waits to watch others.

They play in the yard daily and today and I went out in with my camera and took some pictures. These are the colors of collars they have on, so in the photos you know who is who: (Maddy x Buddy) – Gordon – Yellow, Ming – Silver, Bobby – Black, Mario – Cream, Carla – Purple, Julia – Pink. (Vixen x BJ) Elon – Light Blue, Doug – Navy Blue, Bob – Green, Katherine – Red, Dorothy – Orange.

Enjoy the fun – and the wrestling <3

Thank you for your interest in my breeding program. I am just starting to make offers for the puppies as I have decided which pups might stay in my breeding program.

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

Sweet sleepy beagle pups

As i mentioned in my last post, when the beagle puppies were at my studio, they fell asleep so I made the most of it by taking some cute pictures of them together. Then, Mr Ming was sleeping on a pillow, so I snapped a couple of extras of him. <3

Enjoy

Thank you for your interest in my breeding program. I wont be making offers to any families till closer to 7-8 weeks when I can assess their structure and temperament, and decide which will be staying in my breeding program. I am just not quite ready yet – thank you for your patience.

Madison & Vixen’s beagle puppies turn 6 weeks

The beagle puppies are getting bolder and starting to really love the routines. They understand where the food bowls are (naturally) and how to navigate the little stairs out to the yard they play in. It’s amazing how quickly they are growing and exploring their world.

I still haven’t made my decisions about who is staying and going. I appreciate all the people who are waiting and how hard it is for you and i want to thank you for your patience. My breeding program takes hundreds of hours of preparation, commitment and thousands of dollars, and so i agonize over making the right decision so I don’t place the best puppy into a family where they will get neutered or spayed. I try to keep the best in every litter, so my breeding program is built on the built – temperament, structure and health wise. So, again I thank you for your patience.

Here are the photos of this week. I took them to my studio this week for my typical “blue chair” photos. I usually let them play for a while first so they aren’t so wiggly, but by the time I started, they were so worn out nearly everyone was asleep. HA! It worked too well. So some of them are barely awake in the photos.

Puppy playtime in the yard

It was a lovely afternoon so I decided to let the beagle puppies play in the backyard with the big dogs. They confidently ran around smelling all the new smells and exploring the new spots in the yard. We have almost an acre so it could be intimidating for tiny pups, but I was so happy to see that they happy out there. It probably helped that their mommies were out there too.

These are the colors of collars they have on, so in the photos you know who is who: (Maddy x Buddy) – Gordon – Yellow, Ming – Silver, Bobby – Black, Mario – Cream, Carla – Purple, Julia – Pink. (Vixen x BJ) Elon – Light Blue, Doug – Navy Blue, Bob – Green, Katherine – Red, Dorothy – Orange.

Madison & Vixen’s beagle pups turn 5 weeks

5 weeks – when did that happen? Woah. They are bone-a-fide mini dogs now – running around and talking (aka growling) and playing together and with toys. They love the mini slide and teeter totter. We have combined the two litters together so to make sure we don’t mix them up, I have put collars on Vixen’s litter. While their markings are different, I don’t want to chance mixing them up till I am completely sure I know who is who. Some of them look very similar 🙂

This week’s photos I did outside – their first outside outing – they were a little nervous but mostly curious and so getting them to sit still was quite a challenge. I can see my days of getting headshots are numbered. 😛 HA! But that’s okay – there is a big world out here to explore. This week they will play in the yard properly for the first time. That will be a big adventure for them.

Gordon (he will wear a yellow collar outside)

Ming (he will wear a silver collar outside)

Bobby (he will wear a black collar outside)

Mario (he will wear a cream collar outside)

Carla (she will wear a purple collar outside)

Julia (she will wear a pink collar outside)

Elon (he will wear a light blue collar outside)

Doug (he will wear a navy blue collar outside)

Bob (he will wear a green collar outside)

Katherine (she will wear a red collar outside)

Dorothy (she will wear a orange collar outside)

Madison & Vixen’s Pups are 3 weeks.

It seems a little silly to make a separate post for these two litters since they are just two days apart. So, I am going to post it on Thursday – the day in between to be “fair” 🙂 LOL.

The babies are growing up nicely. I am smiling to myself that I think that a couple of Madison’s babies have decided that they want to be babies just a little bit longer – their first bite of food was “traumatic” and caused two to cry (not pointing any fingers :P). I have never had that before. Needless to say, that after several attempts, we now have everyone eating successfully – one little Diva girl prefers to eat off the spoon, and who am I but to oblige her? Life is short and I only get so much time with them at this stage.

They are all beginning to toddle around on drunken legs and so we are starting to let them explore outside the whelping box a little more. Over the coming week/s they will start to discover the magic of toys and what fun those are. 🙂

Enjoy the latest pictures of the babies

Vixen’s puppies are 2 weeks as well

Vixen’s pups are growing up beautifully as well. She is a wonderful momma and they are content and happy little souls.

Their eyes are just opening also – it’s so great to know that we will be able to talk to them and have them hear us this week. 🙂

Their potty box will go in this week too. It’s kind of nice having 2 litters going through everything in unison
