Dachshunds - week 9Updated : 23/02/2017

THROUGH the joys of the internet we were able to see some of the Dachshund breed judging from Westminster. I have to confess at not being very clever when it comes down to anything technical, alas I missed the live streaming but through a very easy to navigate website I did enjoy watching our American friends in action in th...

Dachshunds - week 8Updated : 16/02/2017

AT A RECENT Dachshund Club committee meeting the club’s annual awards were decided. The famous Jackdaw Trophy for the outstanding Dachshund in 2016 has been awarded to Morris and Judith Armstrong’s Smooth Ch Lauralee Nicholas Nickleby who was also awarded the Friedl Cup for top Smooth male. The Amyass Biss and Bo...

Dachshunds - week 7Updated : 10/02/2017

ANDREA Callow (Garthorne Min Smooths) was the judge that decided the main awards at a very chilly DC of Wales championship show which once again was held at Cwmbran Stadium. After being awarded his third CC in our variety, Lesley McNaughton’s Long Cedavoch The Alchemist was awarded BIS with Kim and Duncan McCalmont&rsq...

Dachshunds - week 6Updated : 02/02/2017

BOTH OUR varieties had a good day at The Northern Longhaired Dachshund Breeders Association open show in one of club’s best numerical entries for some time. Liz Garlick (Ranglewood Longs) and Fay Hutchings (Collidach Dachshunds and Smooth Collies) were the breed judges. BIS judge Dawn Norton (Halunke Min Longs) awarded...

Dachshunds - week 5Updated : 26/01/2017

THIS TIME of year it seems to be all or nothing when it comes to canine activities. With Manchester and the Dachshund of the Year just two days apart both being held in the Midlands it proved a hectic few days for some.      Thankfully the weather was with us on both occasions making travelling bearable....

Dachshunds - week 4Updated : 20/01/2017

FURTHER to the breakdown of top wins 2016 in the Smooths/Min Smooth, two other notable wins to mention are Sue and Jason Hunt’s Smooth Ch Sontag Shanda Leah two CCs with BOB at Crufts and RBIS at the Dachshund of Wales ch show, and Andrea Callow’s Min Smooth Garthorne Miss Toffee with two CC and one RCC.  &...

Dachshunds - week 4Updated : 18/01/2017

WITH SNOWDROPS starting to appear you would think that the glimmer of spring is with us, but how wrong could we be? Most of the country has now seen the first snowfall of the winter with much more to come, I’m sure. The horrible persistant rain and damp is with us, which makes life even more difficult for two and four-...

Dachshunds - week 3Updated : 11/01/2017

ALTHOUGH both of our varieties have to wait until February at the DC of Wales to have our first sets of CCs on offer for this year, both Boston and Manchester have blessed us with generous non-CC classifications. Certainly both societies have been rewarded with very good entries. Of course both shows, although not having CC ...

Dachshunds - week 2Updated : 05/01/2017

OUR 2017 show calendar is looking quite complete now for judges and dates. Another year where both our varieties have a fair share of specialist and non specialist (all rounder) judges. The following list has Long judges followed by Min Long judges where both are available. A lot of weekday shows for our varieties this year ...

Dachshunds - week 1Updated : 29/12/2016

AS WE see the start of 2017 we just have time to take a look at the final standings in the various leader tables for 2016. We are fortunate to have two competitions to decide a top dog. Firstly, Dog World top dog is decided with points allocated to CC, BOB and for group and BIS placings at championship shows. The Long Haired...

Dachshunds - week 1Updated : 29/12/2016

WHERE does time go? These are my last notes of 2016 and when you read them they will be the first notes of 2017. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and have a very happy and successful 2017. We have certainly been lucky with the weather this winter so far – the only drawback to this is that my puppies don’t...

Dachshunds - week 52Updated : 19/12/2016

THE SAD news that Denise Tyerman has died has shocked many and is hard to believe. She was such a happy and lively character who just loved dogs and dog people. Her love for Dachshunds was clear for all to see too and the interest that Denise showed especially in Longs and Min Longs gave us all a lovely loyal friend. Togethe...

Dachshunds - week 51Updated : 14/12/2016

THESE notes should appear in the pre-Christmas edition so here’s hoping you and your hounds all have a very merry Christmas. I am not quite sure what happened with the editing of my notes in the Dec 9 edition, but when they were sent ‘Lafora’ had a capital ‘L’ and the paragraph on the BRS should...

Dachshunds - week 51Updated : 13/12/2016

AS WE SAY goodbye to 2016, entry figures for the first all-breed championship show in 2017 are announced. Boston doesn’t have CCs for any Dachshund variety but always provides us with a generous classification. 19 Longs and 20 Min Longs are entered which is an encouraging start for both with the added bonus of still be...

Dachshunds - week 50Updated : 08/12/2016

WHAT A good weekend for Wires last week – and for the Ambiesque/Brumberhill kennel in particular. Stewart McPherson and Peter Paterson’s Treis Pinheiros Obi Kenobi was BOB at South Yorkshire Hound Club under Jimmi Johnstone-White (who was paying his first ever visit to Yorkshire and managed to find time to send m...

Dachshunds - week 50Updated : 07/12/2016

In 2018 Katherine Herrington (Kathington Min Smooths) will judge Longs at the DC of Wales and Lynn Brooks (Lyndarlea Min Longs) will judge Min Longs at South Wales. Over the next few week...

Dachshunds - week 49Updated : 01/12/2016

JUST A gentle reminder to everyone that I cannot post results if you do not tell me about them! I am happy to report on anything to do with Wire Haired Dachshunds – just let me know what you want to see here, otherwise you just have to put up with what’s happening to me!      Having bred tw...

Dachshunds - week 49Updated : 30/11/2016

WITH THE Southern DA moving its championship show from January to March, our first championship show with CCs on offer for both our varieties will be the DC of Wales at the beginning of February where Sue Ergis (Siouxline Min Smooths) will be awarding the first set of Long CCs in 2017 and Helen Walters (Ralines Min Longs) wi...

Dachshunds - week 48Updated : 24/11/2016

I WAS SORRY not to get to the DC ch show for the second year running. I had three bitches in full season, but judging from the comments made by the Scottish contingent it might have been a blessing in disguise as the higher parts of the M6 had thick snow making for a treacherous journey – it snowed on the same weekend ...
