Champion Dachshunds

The Dachshund News has mixed feelings about dog shows. We cover the biggies including Westminster and Crufts because they’re events that people talk about. But it makes us a bit uncomfortable as some dog breeders have done a lot of damage to certain breeds over the years.

Let’s just say we don’t know how to quit show coverage and before we decide to, we’d like to see a Dachshund win Westminster.

This is a long video at more than half an hour, but it’s a fun look at the great variation in hound types as the judge runs through the breeds in alphabetical order. The Dachshunds make their appearance at the 15 minute-mark beginning with the longhaired Dachshund winner, GCH Hundeleben Queen’s Armada SL, also known as Cheese. He was number one for all systems (?), all coats in 2011, according to the announcer.

Next up is Gino aka GCH Brownwood D’Geno Rock SS, the smooth Dachshund winner.

Then comes GCH Raydachs Playing With Fire V Gleishorbach also known as Cinders, a two-year-old Texan girl, who wins the group and goes on to compete for Best in Show.

Congratulations, Raydachs Playing With Fire V Gleishorbach SW.

Here she is strutting her stuff at the finals:

Smokey the Dachshund aka GCh Legibach Light My Fire is off to Westminster

Smokey the Dachshund aka GCh Legibach Light My Fire will retire from the show ring and return to Bermuda after Westminster

The island’s Royal Gazette has Smoky’s story:

“He is such a curious young man and he is a happy little dog without any issues which is usually pretty rare,” said Mr Clinton. “Dachshunds are known to be fiercely independent. Smokey believes he is a labrador retriever.

“He is very happy and wants to be with everyone. That is kind of rare because they are snippy animals, normally.

“So the judges on the circuit have fallen in love with the little man. It will be interesting to see how he does at Westminster.”

The show will be televised on USA Network.

“I know other Bermudians have been at Westminster but I am sure none have gone as a grand champions,” he said.

After the show, Smokey will go back to Virginia with his handler, and then will come to live with Mr Clinton for good in March. “I have really missed the little man,” said Mr Clinton. “I haven’t seen him in over a year. He has been a fashionista on the circuit. I would love to have him here in my house in St George.

The legs have it. P’shaw.

On Monday night, only plaids and kilts were missing. A 7-year-old Scottish deerhound named Tiger Woods — his owner is a huge golfer — won the hound group, then a Scottish terrier took the terrier group.

“Maybe I ought to have a Scotch,” said Gabriel Rangel, the terrier’s handler.

Rangel came with his own good-luck charm. He led Sadie around the ring with the same leash that guided a Scottish terrier called Bingo to the 1967 best in show prize at Madison Square Garden.

“Worked pretty well, didn’t it?” owner Amelia Musser said. “I think we’ll keep using it.”

Read all about Sadie at our sister site, the Scottish Terrier and Dog News.

The Westminster Dog Show takes place Monday and Tuesday (February 9-10) with the finale being broadcast live Tuesday evening, beginning at 8PM Eastern time on the USA Network. The Dachshunds will be judged Monday morning and early afternoon, and the champion in the hounds group will be pronounced Monday night after 8 p.m. The Judge for the hounds is Patricia V. Trotter. Best in Show Judge or Queen Bee is Sari Brewster Tietjen.

And because the Daily Doxie feels a little bit guilty about dog shows, in the same way we feel guilty about visiting zoos, we give you the Terrierman with An Instructive History of the Destructive Show Ring.
