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...

THROUGH the joys of the internet we were able to see some of the Dachshund breed judging from Westminster. I have to confess at not being very clever when it comes down to anything technical, alas I missed the live streaming but through a very easy to navigate website I did enjoy watching our American friends in action in th...

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 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 5Updated : 27/01/2017

Dachshunds - week 5Updated : 26/01/2017

THIS TIME of year it seems to be all or nothing when it comes to canine activities. With Manchester and the Dachshund of the Year just two days apart both being held in the Midlands it proved a hectic few days for some.      Thankfully the weather was with us on both occasions making travelling bearable....

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.

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 : 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 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...

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 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...
