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.

Kong wins Baby In Show!

Andrew and I decided to drive down to the NSW specialties this year. This was good because it meant I could take a few dogs down with me! Abby had other ideas, coming into season a few days prior to the specialty! Great. Luckily Bo doesn’t care so much about all that yet as he doesn’t know what it means.

We took Abby, Bo, Kong and Trixie to Sydney with some great results! On Saturday under Mr Deryck Player (Lyndex Beagles, UK), Abby was 4th in Open class, and Kong was placed 1st in Baby Puppy Dog. Andrew loves this dog and told me he’s a Baby in Show winner for sure! He was right with Flo, but Andrew picks a dog on their personality… and I’ll give him that. Flo and Kong both have gorgeous personalities 🙂 The weather on the Saturday was just awful. Raining, Windy and Cold. Three things I hate about weather. When I put Kong back into the car after his class, he was shivering so bad. Andrew wrapped him up in a blanket to warm him up.

We went back into the ring for Baby in Show and lo and behold, Mr Player awarded our little boy, Baby in Show. It was quite an emotional win for me, as I had won this same award with his mummy, 5 years prior at our first specialty weekend together. It was such an honour to win our first Baby In Show with a home bred baby.

On Sunday at the 99th Championship Show, Kong again won his class, and was awarded Opposite Baby Puppy in Show. So a fantastic weekend for our little man! Abby placed 2nd in Open Bitch class and Bo was 4th in Intermediate dog. Trixie enjoyed herself 🙂

Overall, a fantastic weekend for our little boy and his mummy!

So much has happened…

Wow, it’s become quite clear that I suck at updating our website. It’s been 9 months since the update and a lot has certainly happened in that time!

We have only had two litters, but our recent litter was a lot different to the first. It made the first seem like a dream. At two weeks, a special little boy started to fall behind. I don’t think I’ve ever been so emotionally and physically exhausted in my whole life. Poor Andrew, he would come home from long days at work, to me in a state and a sick puppy. After numerous vet visits in the wee hours of the morning (Thank you Eden & Andrew!), and friends giving us advice and equipment, we seemed to manage to get him through. I believe the key was keeping him hydrated through this time. Without that, I’m most certain we would have lost him. A more specific explanation on “Spotty” can be found here.

After finally getting Spotty back on track, things turned bad for my gorgeous girl. On the 1st of December, our nightmare continued… I’ll write that in a separate post too!

The babies all went off to their new homes. Red and Jasper with a lovely family on the Gold Coast. Spotty (now Charlie) went to a home with one of the puppies from our first litter. Two went to Melbourne, and we kept two, with one returning from Melbourne. So, we have three of the litter of 7. *sigh* We sure do suck at this breeding thing.

On to the next update!

Abby has been Artificially Inseminated with semen from BISS GCH Danter’s Son Of Trouble.

Puppies are due early November 2014, and we expect Tan and White and Tri coloured puppies.

If you are interested in providing one of our lovely puppies with a forever home, please send me an email with information about your family, home and why one of our babies is for you.

We are super excited to announce that Bo has been awarded enough Challenge points to have gained his Australian Champion Title.

This is very special for us, as he is our first home bred champion, bred, raised and shown by me.

I would like to make special mention of Noosha Collins who has helped me show Bo through the past 9 months and has been a great support and friend to us both.

Onwards and upwards from here!

Below is a photo taken by our special friend Eden Thornton of Thornoughton Photography who has been there from the birth, until now to see Bo achieve his title. Thank you for your love and support.
