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

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 : 13/01/2017

SOME SAD news to start this week’s notes. Jean Hallett, who is not in the best of health herself, and sadly had to relinquish her Crufts Min Long appointment, let me know that Elizabeth Fulton’s husband died suddenly last week. Our thoughts are with Elizabeth and Gillian at this time.      ...

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 : 06/01/2017

WELL, EYES down, look in, and off we all go for another fun packed year! Hope all your holidays were good. Great to see Daniel is one of the contenders for Breed Note Writer of the Year – I hope you have all voted for him so we can keep up the record of Dachshund successes at the Pawscars.      T...

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

SURE what happened but part of my notes were missing from the Dec 16 edition – apologies to those affected. The beginning should have read: “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 Keno...

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 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 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 ...
