PUppy play Out-takes

I love watching my puppies play – they are a constant source of joy and laughter. I wanted to share a couple of out-takes that I happened to catch this week and share the joy.

The little faded tri boy colliding with my little 6 month old cavalier Summer. No cavaliers or beagles were injured in this 🙂

My other out-take was Miss “Katherine” from my Vixen x BJ litter – she was trying to jump onto the back of a chair, but she mis-calculated. Well, you can see the results 🙂

Just like the first image, she was just fine and dandy – but it made for a good giggle for me.

Have a great day everyone!

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.

The Beagle Puppies look a little Different – But equally as cute.

So, this week has been full of changes. Most of Vixen and Madison’s babies have gone to their new homes. The only girl we have left is “Katherine” from Vixen, who will go to her forever home next Tuesday.

Yesterday, I drove to Southern Oregon, to meet up with my co-breeders Mike and Karen who live in Sacramento. They have kindly been raising Mia’s litter for me, so I wouldn’t go grey-haired raising 15 puppies on my own. So, we met up so we could go over them in person. Toby, the dark tri boy went to his forever home in Medford OR and I brought the two girls and faded tri boy home with me, so they can go to their forever homes up here.

So, our puppy pack looks a little different, but so very cute. Since Madison and Mia are sisters, these guys are cousins, and actually aunts/uncle to “Katherine” since Mia is Vixen’s mom. (Did you get all that family connection? 🙂 ). It’s been fun getting to know their little personalities.

Enjoy the photos I took of them tonight as they played in the yard.

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

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.

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

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)

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

Vixen and BJ pups turn 1 week

Of course with Maddy’s pups turning a week old, Vixen’s pups are just a couple of days behind. They are also thriving and turning into beautiful chunky little bonny beagle pups. Both mothers are just super at their job – I feel very blessed indeed.

Here are Vixen’s precious 5. I decided the litter theme for Vixen’s babies would be in honor of the Space X launch that happened this week. These are of course only their blog names – we call them all “puppy” until we know their real names from their family or till we name them for real ourselves. The 2 girls were named after Katherine G. Johnson and Dorothy Vaughan who I was very inspired by after watching “Hidden Figures” by their work at NASA.

Madison X Buddy’s pups turn 1 week old

The first week milestone is always a good one for me – it signals that I dont have to get up every 2 hours in the night any more (just once mid way through) to check on them, and usually by now they have gained their birthweight back. Well, these guys are little piggies and a couple have made it to double their birthweight already and the others aren’t far behind. To say Maddy is doing a wonderful job with her pups is an understatement.

This week we should see little peepers – I love seeing their little eyes and watching them get up on their feet for the first time. Although honestly, this is the most content bunch I have ever raised so maybe they will just want to keep sleeping a little longer 😛 HA!

I decided since Buddy’s name is “The Cake Boss”, that I would go with a litter theme of some of my favorite chefs from around the world.

Here you go – this week’s pictures. <3
