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 26Updated : 21/06/2017

THE SUN certainly had his hat on for Border Union and the Miniature DC and fingers crossed will be with us for a while; we may even get a summer that lasts with three days where temperatures went over 30 degrees – this must be some kind of record! To my mind this must be the first time in years that  Border Union ...

AT SOUTHERN Counties the Min Smooths had a change of judge; the elective judge Juliet Cooper was unable to judge due to the death her mother. Our thoughts are with her at this sad time. Zara Boyle (Zarcrest) was asked to step in.      BCC and BOB was Joanne Blackburn-Bennett’s Stargang Cherry Berry...

Dachshunds - week 25Updated : 16/06/2017

THREE Counties started with sadness. Juliet Cooper had attracted a lovely entry of Min Smooths and the evening before the show it was announced that Min Smooths had a change of judge. I think most of us knew this was not a good sign as Juliet’s mother Eunice Steadman had not been well for some time.    ...

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 : 09/06/2017

AT SOUTHERN Counties the Min Smooths with CCs were judged by Sally Ann Elkington (Min Wire and Afghans). BCC, BOB and BP was Sue and Jason Hunt’s Carpaccio Midnight Lace. RBCC was Sue and Jason’s Ch C Blithe Spirit.      DCC was Sue Ergis’ Ch Siouxline Aaron. RDCC was Jenny Startup&rsqu...

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. &...

BY THE time these notes appear the UK will have had another general election and the results will be known to us all. The tragic events over the past few weeks have certainly destroyed many innocent lives and certainly have affected us all in many different ways. As I write these notes I’m travelling from Stafford to L...

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 23Updated : 01/06/2017

IT WAS certainly a busy and, in many cases, a successful bank holiday weekend for many. The glorious sunshine that we experienced in the days leading up to the four shows in two days unfortunately didn’t last. However the rain didn’t dampen the spirits on Monday’s events and the whole atmosphere seemed to h...

Dachshunds - week 22Updated : 26/05/2017

SMOOTHS at SKC were judged by Brenda Jones (Adnerbs Smooths) her first time giving CCs. DCC and BOB was Rhian Williams and Chris Moes’ Cwmdarhian San Andreas, later winning the hound group under Stuart Milner. RDCC was Clare Bethel and Debbie Gaskins’ Hampdach Simply Red.      BCC was Jennife...

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 22Updated : 25/05/2017

OUR HEADLINES this week, Longhaired judging starts after 4pm at SKC (May) and The DC of Wales A2 assessment day cancelled due to lack of support! Both seem unbelievable but sadly are true. On a serious note though as I write these notes the shocking news that a pop concert at The Manchester Arena has been involved with a ter...

Dachshunds - week 21Updated : 18/05/2017

AT WEST Country DC Peter Higgins’ Smooth Meganhol Black Musketeer of Leveliss won BP, BOB, G3 and PG1.      Also at the same show Angela Rollinson’s Min Smooth Diamonddax Bridget Jones won BP and PG3.      The Dachshund Breed Council held its AGM and meeting. The good new...

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 20Updated : 11/05/2017

THE HARD working team at Birmingham National had obviously taken our comments from previous years on board as this year all Dachshund rings where all together in Bingley Hall and all within close proximity of each other, so it was easy to glance across to see all the judging through the six varieties. Although lucky enough t...

Dachshunds - week 19Updated : 05/05/2017

UNFORTUNATELY I was unable to go Australia to judge the Dachshund Club of New South Wales due to illness. Thanks to all who have sent messages, I am taking it slowly and improving. Many thanks to Daniel for doing my breed notes.      At WELKS Smooths were judged by Jeremy Goddard (Minard). BCC, her first...

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 19Updated : 03/05/2017

WELKS sees the outdoor season begin for many all breeds, but unfortunately not so for Longs and Min Longs. Many years ago both our varieties had classes and CCs on offer but sadly nothing for us now. For some time now the show has also fallen around the weekend of the Long Haired DC, but this year this was not so and indeed ...
