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.

If you want to be considered for a 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

No beagle pups in March

We are so sad to announce that Allie was pregnant, but yesterday we did an x-ray and found that she has lost the litter 🙁

To say that this is gut wrenching is an understatement. This is part of breeding for sure, but it doesn’t make it stink any less.

So, now we try and look to the future and what we will do next. Allie is fine. Going through the motions of a false pregnancy and was checked out thoroughly by out vet yesterday and was found to be healthy. So that is something to be grateful for.

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.

Maddy’s pups are 8 weeks & Vixen’s pups are 11 weeks

The puppies are growing about as quickly as the temperatures are dropping – fall in the PNW is certainly here. The puppies dont seem to notice though as they play in the yard and enjoy being outside each day.

My poor plants are squashed and flattened by all the games of catch and tag that happen over them, but I cant even be mad with how cute they all are.

I cant help but think this is the final time Maddy’s 5 will be together before Bepper (now Ella), Api (now Bradley) and Gelly (now Poppy) will be going to their new homes.

The homes that Cottonz and Wistor had lined up, have fallen through.

However, I am looking for guardian homes for them. This means that the couple or family will co-own with me and allow me to show the dog to CH title (at my expense) and one day she will have a litter of puppies before being spayed. They are not available as just pets. If you think you are interested in meeting me and talking about this kind of partnership/relationship, please feel free to email me.

Madison’s pups are 6 weeks old

Maddy’s babies are 6 weeks old. We still have Nick, Eve and Noelle are still here for a few more weeks till they go to their new homes. The babies are really not looking like babies anymore and so now I can start to assess them and see if anyone will stay in my breeding program. I cant wait to do this. 🙂

The two litters get along so well I have now combined them – they are now playing together all day and napping together. The new skills development continues with crate training for the older pups well underway.

I love them so much. Holly (now Chloe) and Kris (now Walter) are settled into their new homes and the reports I have are wonderful. They are greatly missed but I love to hear that they are doing so well with their new families.

Madison’s puppies are 5 weeks

Madison’s puppies are really starting to look and act like real puppies. They are playing with Vixen’s puppies – they of course get beaten up, but it’s making them tough too 🙂 LOL. They are almost weaned – not because they want to be – ha!

They are sweet and confident – they are getting good at going up 2 – 3 stairs at a time thanks to the little ladder and slide they play on and love playing in the garden. I love snuggling them so much.

Enjoy the photos of them from this week <3

Vixen’s puppies are 8 weeks old

It’s hard to believe that Vixen’s puppies are old enough to fly the coup. Oh my gosh. I am just so glad that a couple of them are spending a couple of extra weeks here as their families cant pick them up yet, and so I get a few more weeks of snuggles – WHEW!

Eve’s new name is Echo (purple collar) – she is bold and bright and full of energy. But she also wants to be with people and is super friendly. She is going to live with the Sheppard family and will be shown in conformation and 4H. Noelle (yellow collar) is laid back and quiet, although definitely not a push over – she loves to be snuggled and nestles into your neck. She is going to live as a pet with the Banks family. Kris (black collar) is outgoing and friendly – he is my daughter’s favorite puppy and she will be sad to see him go. He has found the perfect home with L Blank and her boyfriend and he has already settled in perfectly. Nick (blue collar) may be a 13 inch and is my little shadow – he watches me intently and I think he is super smart. I am hoping we will show him and he will be part of our breeding program if he continues to grow in the way he is right now. Holly (pink collar) is super sweet, and has enough spice to be fun and playful but melts into your arms when you pick her up. She has gone to the loving home with the Langan’s and I am pleased to know we will see her in the show ring next Summer.

Enjoy the latest pictures of them playing around our yard. <3
