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...

Dachshunds - week 10Updated : 02/03/2017

AT THE DC open show Min Smooths were judged by Sharon Broad and Sue and Jason Hunt’s Ch Carpaccio Blithe Spirit won BOB and Carpaccio Scarlet O’Hara was BP, and later RBPIS under Caroline Friend -Rees. Peter Protheroes Min Smooth Royal maple Anky Panky was BOS.      Smooths were judged by Kev...

Dachshunds - week 10Updated : 02/03/2017

IF YOU are reading these notes for the first time because you have bought Dog World at Crufts – welcome! If you are an exhibitor – good luck! Just make sure you enjoy your day – there is no other show like it. Please keep reading – and come and meet our Wires of both sizes (only two in the UK) on the ...

Dachshunds - week 9Updated : 24/02/2017

THESE will be the last breed notes before Crufts so good luck and I hope everyone has a wonderful day. Do not forget a spare pair of shoes as the floor surface at the NEC is unforgiving! When you feel like sitting down at the end of the day do remember that not too far from the Dachshund rings in hall 4, the Dachtastic Min L...

Dachshunds - week 8Updated : 16/02/2017

AN APOLOGY for last week’s notes – Pauline and Daisy Langridge’s Tendrow Elberta was of course winning his second RDCC at DC of Wales having won his first under Elisabeth Rhodin at DC 2015. I know I checked that when I was writing the notes so I don’t know how I got it wrong.     ...

Dachshunds - week 7Updated : 09/02/2017

THE CRUFTS entry is out and Wires have 37 dogs and 51 bitches making a total entry of 88 for Anne Moore, and Min Wires have 47 dogs and 66 bitches making a total entry of 113 for Yvonne Angear. Last year the entries were 92 and 123 respectively. We also have rather sensible start times – 10.30am for the Wires and 10am ...

Dachshunds - week 6Updated : 03/02/2017

NEWS FROM Val Phillips that Tendrow Poetic Justice has just gained her gold Good Citizens award at the ripe age of nine! Well, nine of course is quite young for a Wire, but it does show that they can take to obedience and I have always found GC classes to be fun for me and fun for the dogs. Still, the gold award takes a bit ...

Dachshunds - week 5Updated : 27/01/2017

A BUSY extended weekend for some of you last week with Manchester on the Thursday and Dachshund of the Year on Saturday. The penny finally seems to have dropped that you can qualify for Crufts from non-CC classes at general ch shows – this does not just apply to puppies and Manchester, but all other general ch shows to...

Dachshunds - week 4Updated : 20/01/2017

GREAT to hear that Donna Kirkwood-Emery’s Min Wire Helydon Jinglebells (Jin) has qualified for the SKC’s top open show puppy final 2017. She has had quite a puppy career winning puppy stakes at SKC, being shortlisted in three championship hound puppy groups and Blackpool’s junior group, many first at champi...

Dachshunds - week 4Updated : 20/01/2017
