Dachshunds - week 26Updated : 22/06/2017

HOW COULD I have forgotten to include in last week’s notes that Sabrina Jones’ Bimini Blue Moon was PG2 at Three Counties, many apologies. Also left out was Mrs Clayton-Smith’s Cishelvine Judge And Jury getting third in the junior dog stakes. Just shows that you can’t rely on me to pick things up from...

Dachshunds - week 25Updated : 15/06/2017

THREE Counties has CCs for Min Wires, but not Wires. We used to have Wire CCs there when the show was held with the Agricultural Show, and I always remember us having gorgeous weather there too. Considering Malvern is right in the centre of England and Wales the entry in Wires was rather disappointing – weekdays and no...

Dachshunds - week 24Updated : 08/06/2017

SOUTHERN Counties had CCs for Wires but not Min Wires as usual. Ian Seath judged Wires with CCs at Southern Counties (last appointment LKA 2013) and from an entry of 63 with 13 absent his BOB went to Viv Bates and Eileen Maes-Jones’ Derochaise Elusia, winning her first CC, this kennel is really on a roll at present. &...

Dachshunds - week 23Updated : 01/06/2017

THE LATE May bank holiday was a very busy weekend for exhibitors. Sunday was Eastern Counties DA open show where Matthew Flowers’ Vostock Zapad Viking for Bingobongo was RBPIS under Bill Rowell (BIS) and Marion Hunt (breed).      Corinne Ward-Blower’s Willowmist Brown Sugar was best Miniature...

Dachshunds - week 22Updated : 25/05/2017

SKC IN May is a representative show and so has CCs for both our varieties which were judged this year by Sandra Marshall (Mins) and Viv Phillips (Wires).      Miniatures were judged first and they had an entry of 27, with five absentees. This was Mrs Marshall’s first time judging the variety with C...

Dachshunds - week 21Updated : 18/05/2017

THERE have been no ch shows in the UK since the last breed notes, but an announcement from the Kennel Club AGM that the Crufts entry fee is to increase to £30 per dog.      I have no problem with this – Crufts is the premier UK show, but it would be nice if they could give a discount for ente...

Dachshunds - week 20Updated : 11/05/2017

AT BIRMINGHAM National Darren Fellows judged Wires and Mike Caple Min Wires.      Darren Fellows (last appointment MDC ‘14) had an entry of 63 Wires with 12 absentees and made two people very happy, giving a first DCC to Liz Sorenson’s Jethard Just Jive (three RCCs), handled as usual by Marti...

Dachshunds - week 19Updated : 04/05/2017

THE SHOW year is accelerating now and we have had the first outdoor ch show of the year, WELKS, where both our varieties have CCs with Jenny Rowe judging Wires for the first time at this level and Gavin Robertson Min Wires for the second (his last appointment Houndshow 2012).      Jenny had a lovely entr...

Dachshunds - week 18Updated : 27/04/2017

I SAT DOWN at the computer wondering what I could mention in these notes and found the Kennel Club had announced the details of the new judging competency framework – immediate thought – couldn’t they just have called it ‘How to be a judge’?      It seems like a good idea to...

Dachshunds - week 17Updated : 20/04/2017

NO NEWS from anyone over the Easter BH weekend! If I was just to send in the news I am sent you would not have any breed notes at all – please try to send me something – it does not have to be show results!      Thanks to Fay Hutchings I do have the results of the Lancs and Cheshire open show...

Dachshunds - week 16Updated : 13/04/2017

WHAT A frustrating week – no post for six days which meant that I got my dog papers on Tuesday night rather than the previous Thursday, after a complaint to the Post Office! Our single track road is being dug up to lay gas pipes. It was originally due to take two weeks and will now take eight. Percy is having the time ...

Dachshunds - week 15Updated : 06/04/2017

THIS WEEK saw the Scottish DC’s championship show which was an Angie Baxter day in more than one variety! Peter Higgins judged Wires and made Angie and Rurh Vine’s Cishelvine Red Admiral BOB with Angie’s Hotwire Twist’n’Sprout BB and BP. For good measure Angie also handled the Min Long, Half Cen...

Dachshunds - week 14Updated : 30/03/2017

WITHOUT the use of a crystal ball our breed clubs have little insight to the future of there shows. What they do have is the confirmed Kennel Club CC allocation for 2020. The KC has agreed that the allocation should be based on 2019 subject to changes due to clubs on rotations. The general championship CC allocation remains ...

Dachshunds - week 14Updated : 30/03/2017

JUST AS you have recovered from Crufts, along comes the next biggest show in the Wirehaired Dachshund world – our club show. It has been held at the Sports Connexion for so long now it runs like a well oiled machine with Arnold and Phil at the helm – the only problem is the acoustics are such that it is still imp...

Dachshunds - week 13Updated : 23/03/2017

TWO OF our Yorkshire clubs held their open shows. West Riding Dachshund on the Saturday and East Yorkshire Dachshund on the Sunday. The West Riding open show and AGM was held at the Speedwell Rooms, Chesterfield and had a good entry & they received good feedback from the exhibitors. All Standards were judged by Johnny M...

Dachshunds - week 13Updated : 23/03/2017

I DO NOT know about you, but every year it seems to take me longer and longer to recover from Crufts – and sometimes March, by far my favourite month – can seem just a bit unforgiving! Immediately following Crufts came Cheltenham, a ‘must watch’ in my life for as long as I can remember (and yes, I wat...

Dachshunds - week 13Updated : 22/03/2017

WITH TWO breed clubs holding their open shows over one weekend it gave many a chance to relax and enjoy getting their youngsters out in preparation for the year ahead. From what I hear both the West Riding DA and the East Yorkshire DC had some very good entries and supplied the best in homemade refreshments which is always a...

Dachshunds - week 12Updated : 20/03/2017

HOPE ALL of you who went to Crufts had an enjoyable day. I was sorry not to have been there but with a husband who has not been well these last four months and puppies at a stage where they needed attention, and the fact that I was worn out, it was just impossible for me to attend.      I am told it was ...

Dachshunds - week 12Updated : 16/03/2017

WELL, THAT’S it all done and dusted for another year – doesn’t Crufts go quickly once it finally arrives – and does anyone get a chance to do any shopping there without going on an extra day? This year I never made it out of hall 4 and ‘our’ half of hall 3. Sadly the Discover Dogs team had...

Dachshunds - week 11Updated : 08/03/2017

THESE are always the worst set of breed notes to write as I am writing them on the Tuesday night before Crufts (they have to be in by Wednesday but I leave at the crack of dawn tomorrow) so I know nothing about the show while the rest of the paper will be filled with Crufts news.      Short and to the po...
