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 17Updated : 19/04/2017

THE NATIONAL has attracted some decent entry figures for our varieties. Longs have 40 dogs, Min Long 89, Smooth 40 and Min Smooth top the lot at 103 dogs. Looking through the schedule I see the society is once again holding many educational events including points of the dog and ring procedure over the four days.  &nbs...

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 ...

THE MIDLAND DC recently held a well-attended AGM, which ran smoothly and resulted in some changes in office. The club’s new secretary is Daniel Roberts (contact details below) with a new treasurer Helen Walters (Ralines Min Longs). Ian Smith (Salixian Wires) was officially voted in as chairman and former long term secr...

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 15Updated : 05/04/2017

THE FIRST of two weekends in a row heading far north where at each event both our varieties had CCs on offer. The Scottish Dachshund Club held a very well run championship show with a good finish time to get everyone on their way home. The Swann Centre at Berwick-Upon-Tweed is now a well-established home for the club and I h...

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 : 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 12Updated : 15/03/2017

ON THE eve of Crufts I was lucky enough to attend The Pawscars awards as a finalist in the breed note writer category, thanks to you lovely people for your nomination. The overall winner was Adam Chappell who writes the Great Dane breed notes in Dog World which I read with interest every week and has done so much to support ...

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...

THE SOUTHERN DA held its championship show at the Montem Leisure Centre, Slough. Smooths had CCs on offer and I had the pleasure of being the judge.      DCC and BOB was Maurice and Judith Armstrong’s Ch Lauralee Nicholas Nickleby who later went BIS under Ann Booth. RDCC was Marilyn Norton’s ...

Dachshunds - week 11Updated : 07/03/2017

BY NOW I’m sure you will all be recovering from the long day we had at Crufts. For many intrepid people this included a repeat visit on another day. It certainly takes its toll (or maybe I’m just starting to feel old!), but at the end of the day there really is no other show like it and the buzz and excitement is...

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

THE ARRIVAL of the latest Kennel Gazette gives us some confirmed judges through to the end of 2019. Clearly some societies are very organised. A few date changes too and some new venues with the start of the extra all breed shows in 2019. At the SDA 2018 Longs will be judged by Sue Holt (Waldeister Min Wires) and Min Longs L...
