These babies have been highly anticipated and are absolutely adorable. Their parents are Abby Ann and Stiles, treasured members of the pack.
Lonesome Grove Abby Ann
Abby Ann is a sweetheart. She is the daughter of Rachel and Huey (the now retired Dual Champion in hunting and show). She is affectionate and gentle; the most loving mother you will find-- just like her mother, Rachel, and grandmother, Belle. She is about 13.5" tall and around 25-28 lbs. She can tends to the thicker side, since she is pretty laid-back. People are always commenting on her attentive and elegant stance. She will just be out in the exercise field and be standing there like a fancy show dog.
Lonesome Grove Stiles
Stiles is out of Hudson and Abigail. This is Abigail's first litter of beagle babies ever. They were highly anticipated since Abigail comes from a long line of European show beagles. She was born in Romania and brought to the states by a missionary. This boy is a grandson of Shooter, nephews of Scout, half-brother of Remington and son of Hudson. He is about 14.5" tall, athletic, loving, and graceful; a striking mixtures of his parent's good looks and charming personalities. In a short time, he has proven to be a consistent sire of strikingly beautiful and wonderfully tempered offspring.
***There are puppies, that will be posted late tonight! (07/25/14) Other updates: Anna is not pregnant, Clara miscarried her litter, but Abby Ann has a beautiful bunch and Carolina is in labor!
There are several people who are watching and planning on bringing one of these upcoming babies into their lives. We will post the babies when they are 4-5 days old and they will be available for selection right away then.
So far Carolina, Abby Ann, Clara, Brooklyn, Reba are for sure pregnant!
Abigail, Anna, Rachel, and Tillie are very likely to be pregnant!
And Alexa is
definitely not pregnant. That is a little disappointing because we know that her and
Remington would be a remarkable cross. But with this many puppies on the way, we
certainly can’t complain!
For those who are interested, we can predict the percentage of possibility of bi or tri color in the
litters. Bi-color is a recessive trait and Tri-color is dominant. The only way to get a fully bi-colored litter is to pair two bi-colored parents. However, two tri-colored parents can produce bi-colored puppies provided they both have the recessive bi-colored gene.
Abby Ann & Stiles will be only tri
Hudson & Carolina will have tri with a small possibility of 25% bi
(uncertain because it is her first litter)
Stiles & Clara will have the possibility of all tri or 50% bi (again,
first litter so we don’t know)
Anna & Hudson will have tri with 25% bi
Remington & Reba will have all tri
Stiles & Brooklyn will have half tri, half bi
Charlie & Abigail will have all bi
Hudson & Rachel will have tri with 25% bi
Charlie & Tillie will have all tri
I think Abigail is pregnant. We will probably be keeping them until they are an older age to be sure to keep some for the next generation. Abigail babies are so rare that we probably won’t let more than one or two go. Unless she has a large litter. In that case there will be others available.
