My 2020 Litter

I’ve just returned from Nationals in Boxborough, MA. I went as I do each year, not to compete, but to reunite with friends in the beagle community and to consider my plans for future breeding. Before leaving, I already had an idea in mind for Hanne, the first step in a multi-generation breeding plan, but I wanted to see what I might find at Nationals. Would I find a dog that I had not yet seen or considered?

CH Talbot Hill Dukeang Thyme Signature, “Hanne” – 2018 CWBC 13″ BOW and Best Puppy

My plans have not changed. Hanne will be bred to BISS GCH AGCH MACH12 ADCH Matador MG Lone Star MXB4 PDS MJS4 PJS MFC TQX T2B5 TKI TM – “Roubaix”. Roubaix is a group and specialty winner…and an agility phenomenon. The titles listed above are likely to change before I’ve finished typing this post. His dam is my 2006 13″ NBC BOW/BBE CH Talbot Hill’s Razzle Dazzle and his grandsire won the National Specialty the same year, BISS CH Bayou Oaks Longhorn Trouble.

Matador MG Lone Star, “Roubaix”…agility titles too numerous to list, and now, a group winner!

This breeding should be interesting both for those interested in performance events and in conformation. Hanne and Roubaix share a similar drive and energy and if they pass that along to their puppies, we will have some future agility stars in the making. For conformation purposes, I’ll point out that this breeding is very similar to a breeding that I did twelve years ago between Herbie (Hanne’s sire) and Velma (Roubaix’s dam), a linebreeding on BISS CH Daragoj Matter of Time. That breeding produced a very consistent litter of puppies, two of which finished quickly with four 4-point majors over specials. Another, Talbot Hill Lemon Thyme, went to Mexico where he made a significant contribution to the breeding program at MG Beagles and sired 2015 Mexican National Specialty winner CH MG Carlos Gardel. CH MG Carlos Gardel, in turn, sired the 2016 Mexican National Specialty winner and 2016 NBC 15″ RWB, MG Lisboa. Lisboa, is the dam of our own CH Bayou Oaks First You Make A Roux (sired by Trey).

Returning to the performance potential of the litter, I’d like to add that I bred Roubaix’s dam, CH Talbot Hill Razzle Dazzle, “Velma”, to BIS CH Bayou Oaks English Leather in cooperation with Alyce Gilmore (Bayou Oaks) for her second litter. That litter produced another agility giant: AGCH MACH25 Bayou Oaks Talbot Hill La Baffi MXC6 PDS MJB& PJS MFB2 TQX T2B8, “Daisy”. Daisy will retire at the end of 2019 after one of the most accomplished agility careers of all-time.

Roubaix is 13.75″ and Hanne is exactly 13″ so with this breeding I hope to keep size down. Both have great toplines, sound movement, and a “joy for life”. Hanne comes from a long line of free-whelping bitches with nice size litters so I hope to retain that as well. For those interested in color, both red & white and tri-color puppies are possible. No blue.

Whether you’re looking for a show/breeding prospect, a performance dog, or a great family pet, keep an eye on my web site or the Talbot Hill Beagles Facebook group for future announcements about the litter. Breeding is anticipated in early 2020; puppies will go to new homes in spring 2020.

We wait for Hanne to come in season. Puppies expected in Spring 2020.

  1. Good luck with your pairing. They ought to be pretty dogs! One of these days, we’d love to have another 13 inch female…

      1. Hello! We are looking for a beagle male puppy as a family pet. Is it possible to be considered for a puppy from this Spring 2020 litter?

    1. CoCo no longer lives with me. She lives with a wonderful couple that has given her a very special “forever home”. I will breed CoCo’s daughter, Hanne, in 2020 and it’s possible that I might breed her sister, Olive, again in 2020 as well.

  2. I purchased one female lemon hair, a tri-color, and a blue Beagle from Julie Wright years ago and saw that she tragically passed away in June 2015. Do you if someone continued breeding her Beagles? I have one 12-year-old Beagle left and am considering getting another one in the future.

  3. I have boy I got from Chardonnay Beagle in 2011. Chuck passed away a couple of years later. I love their conformation and disposition. They are wonderful family members. Do you know did anyone carry on Chuck and Donna’s Chardon line.

    Your beagle’s are beautiful. Congratulations for all your success backed by what is obviously a lot of dedication and hard work. Thank you.

    1. Thank you for contacting me about the Chardon line, Julie. I’ve made inquiries but to our knowledge, no one is continuing the Chardon line. If there is ever anything that I can do to be of assistance, please let me know. Carrie

  4. We are very interested in a 13″ male. I have 2 children handling English Cocker Spaniels in juniors and we would love to be considered for a puppy for my oldest daughter. They are also active participants in 4H, obedience, and agility. I would love to send an email to you or get together to share more details about out family.

  5. Hi my name is Nita Rahn and my Husband’s name is Jeremy.
    I had a beagle growing up and I absolutely love beagles, and want my first dog with my husband to be a beagle!
    My husband and I live in Kelowna BC, We would love a beagle addition to our family.
    We are struggling to find breeders near by, and then your name popped up.
