For anyone that knows us, and knows our dogs… they live a pretty damned good life. One of our favourite things to do, is run the remote control car around the back yard for a good old fashioned chase.

A few weekends ago, I filmed our guys doing this and put it on Facebook. Andrew asked me to put it on Youtube so he could send the link to a friend to show them what we get up to. Next minute, Andrew’s put it on Reddit, and I’m getting phone calls, emails and messages from everywhere from companies wanting to promote it, or do a story on it.

This is just mind blowing to us, as it’s part of our and our dogs normal life, to chase the car around the back yard. It’s the reason we bought acreage and one of our main requirements when searching was an open space for our babies to run around in and have fun. When we saw this property, we knew it was the one! We hated the house, but that wasn’t the reason for us moving. The reason for us moving was so our dogs could have a better life and acreage to enjoy.

People are very quick to judge others, and social media is definitely the worst platform for this. We are registered, purebred breeders with Dogs Queensland. We have a licence with Logan City Council to have our dogs. They live in an airconditioned house and have access inside and out 24 hours a day. In winter, the heater is left on inside for them. We take them to the beach at every opportunity we get. Opportunities aren’t as common as they used to be due to other commitments, but we do try. When they aren’t lounging inside, or chasing the car, they are show dogs with lots of lovely wins to their names.

So, if you haven’t seen it yet (… really? You aren’t one of the nearly 20 million people who have watched it??), below are a few links to the videos.

Enjoy the videos, I hope it brings a smile to everyone’s face, like it does ours when we see the pure joy on our dogs faces as they do something they love!

At the end of 2016…

Asalei Beagles

 

We look back at the fabulous year we’ve had with our beagles! This year saw Abby awarded Best in Specialty Show, Multiple Best in Group awards and a string of challenges which edges her ever closer to her Grand Champion title.

After having to desex Keeper due to health issues, we decided to enter him into shows as a Neuter and boy did he take the shows by storm! Keeper earned his Neuter Title in 7 shows, being awarded 3 Best Neuter in Shows, and 2 Reserve Neuter In Show awards. Keeper has found a new lease of life, and is thoroughly enjoying his time in the ring with me.

2016 also saw the addition to our pack of Poppy from Houndmaster Beagles in WA. Poppy’s pedigree adds valuable lines to our breeding program and she has proven to be a lovely producer with her first litter arriving in August.

From this litter, we are running on Oscar who has had some lovely wins as a baby puppy with 2 Baby Puppy in Group awards. This litter also brought two new lovely families into our lives, whom we’ve shared some lovely weekends with since. We are extremely lucky to have found some wonderful families for our babies to be spoilt by.

With the wonderful results of 2016, we look forward to what 2017 holds for our beagles in the show ring. On the home front, I’m sure it involves lots more lounging around in the air conditioning, chasing their remote control car, and beach trips!

Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!

WE DID IT!

There’s one thing I’ve always wanted for my princess, one thing that’s eluded her at every specialty we’ve entered…. until 06th August, 2016.

Abby was awarded her very first Specialty Challenge, and converted it to her first Specialty Best In Show! I can’t believe it! She has always been the bridesmaid with 5 reserve challenges at specialties under her belt.

A huge thank you to the judge on the day Dr Catharina Linde Forsberg. It was certainly a dream come true, and I got to be on the end of the lead to handler her to this amazing win. Huge thanks must go to her Breeder, Sara Skinner, for showing her in her class. Due to my injuries (which subsequently got worse on the lap of honour), I wasn’t able to show her the whole way. Without Sara showing her in her class, I don’t think I would have made it through to BIS with my princess.

Dreams do come true! Abby has had an amazing year this year, with multiple BIG’s, and now a specialty BIS… we will push on and hope to achieve my goal of obtaining her Grand Champion title. Wouldn’t that be awesome… the dream continues!

I just love this girl so much, we’ve had some amazing wins together.

 

Why does time go so fast?

I can’t believe how quickly the last 8 weeks have gone. It has seriously just flown past. It doesn’t feel that long ago that Poppy had the babies. I still feel like I could sleep for a week, but alas, life must go on.

Yesterday, the three girls from our litter went to their new forever homes. This never gets any easier. I think though, when the time comes that you don’t feel sad that these little beings that you’ve raised for the past 8 weeks, are leaving home, then maybe I shouldn’t be doing it anymore?

Chelsea and Lil will live their lives together and be spoilt rotten! While, Georgie has gone to live with her new sister Patches, and her part-time sister Xena.

At home, we have kept Oscar. At 8 weeks, he shows a lot of promise and we hope he will develop well and be a great contribution to our breeding in the future.

Enjoy your new lives babies! Be spoilt rotten, loved and cherished every day.

Devastatingly, at just 36 hours old, we lost one of our precious girls. This photo below might look like a lovely serene moment with mother and puppies, but to us it breaks our heart. The empty space of our precious little girl. Rest in peace sweet baby. You weren’t meant for this crazy world.

Well, a lot has happened since I last updated our website. We have moved to acreage and the pack love their new back yard, all 4000sqm of it! Their favourite toy is a remote control car, and destroying it.

Grandma also moved with us as well. The dogs all enjoy having an extra set of hands around the place for pats.

We have purchased a business, so time to do other things is very limited at the moment!

I will try and update with our major wins over the past 10 months to update you all.
