A three-year clinical trial at North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine is evaluating stem-cell treatment options for dogs with spinal cord injuries. The participants are paraplegic dogs with Grade 5 injuries, which are considered the worst cases. These dogs have complete paralysis with a lack of sensation to their hind limbs. One participant in the study is a Cocker Spaniel mixed breed named “Tobi,” who suffered from intervertebral disc disease (IVDD), a degenerative disc disorder. “The veterinarian told us that if the surgery wasn’t successful, it was likely Tobi would be paralyzed from the waist down,” Tucker says.

I brought “Zod”, DC Scoshire Scherizade O’Siddachs, CD, JE, CGC, TD, to Virginia in April 2011 after losing Sidney Stafford, the dearest and best friend I had ever had, and we began the process of healing each other’s sorrow. DCA was around the corner and Gary encouraged me to work through my grief and focus on the commitment and promises I had made to Sid. After allowing Zod to acclimate to her new home here, we spent many evenings going to one of the buildings at the Frederick County Fairgrounds where Gary and I teach handling classes. I began working on the obedience commands I remembered from nearly 30 years ago when I first put a CD on one of my dogs.

by Diane Young McCormack So it was in Barbara Power’s memory that I decided to donate back to DCA some of her prized Dachshund memorabilia to be used for the Hemangiosarcoma Fund that your Board of Directors saw fit to establish at the National held in Oconomowoc in 2011. One could not walk by this exhibit without stopping to look – to ask – to question – how could these magnificent dachshunds be taken, many at their prime in life, by this dreaded disease. I know that Barbara would join me in giving thanks to any of you who came by the Silent Auction and donated to this cause.

Research of Canine Diseases Helps to Advance Treatments & Understanding Researchers studying canine diseases are helping to advance treatments that potentially will offer dogs a better prognosis. Here, we highlight research using stem-cell therapy to treat dogs with spinal cord injuries; two studies focusing on chronic active hepatitis (CAH); and research defining heat stress in brachycephalic breeds.

Stem-Cell Study Aids Spinal Cord Injuries A three-year clinical trial at North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine is evaluating stem-cell treatment options for dogs with spinal cord injuries. The participants are paraplegic dogs with Grade 5 injuries, which are considered the worst cases. These dogs have complete paralysis with a lack of sensation to their hind limbs. One participant in the study is a Cocker

Spaniel mixed breed named “Tobi,” who suffered from intervertebral disc disease (IVDD), a degenerative disc disorder. Owner Beverly Tucker of Thomasville, N.C., took Tobi to an emergency veterinary clinic when it was evident he had lost the use of his hind legs. Despite having surgery, Tobi still was unable to feel pain in his hind end, much less use his back legs. “The veterinarian told us that if the surgery wasn’t successful, it was likely Tobi would be paralyzed from the waist down,” Tucker says. Breeds that are genetically predisposed to IVDD develop Type 1 disease. These longbacked, short-legged dogs classically develop signs of IVDD from 4 to 6 years of age, although it can occur anytime from 2 years of age and older. Chondrodystrophoid breeds prone to IVDD are: Cocker Spaniel, Dachshund, Pekingese, Lhasa Apso, Shih Tzu, Basset Hound, Beagle, Poodle, and Pembroke and Cardigan Welsh Corgis. In her efforts to help Tobi, Tucker learned about the clinical trial at North Carolina State University directed by Natasha Olby, VetMB, Ph.D., DACVIM, professor of neurology. The study is funded by the Morris Animal Foundation with support from the American Spaniel Foundation. There is no cost to participate, but owners must agree to transport Dachshund Club of America

their dog to the veterinary school for treatments and evaluations. Olby’s study, currently in the first year, involves evaluation of 30 paraplegic dogs following one of three treatments. She is recruiting 10 dogs a year. Five small-breed dogs, including Tobi, have been treated thus far. The treatments are: • Injection of stem cells and Schwann cells into the spinal cord injury site coupled with an infusion of inosine, a substance with neuroprotective properties. The cells are suspended in an artificial cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) that contains nutrients to help support the cells. • Inosine infusion only. • Injection of artificial CSF only. Stem cells have the ability to rapidly multiply and to take on the function of specialized cells by assimilating various functions. Olby takes a sample of adipose, or fat, tissue and sensory nerves from the back of a dog’s neck from which stem cells and Schwann cells are cultured. These adult fat-derived stem cells are cultured to produce neural stem cells. The Schwann cells produce myelin, a fatty substance that helps to insulate the nerves and allows them to conduct messages, in peripheral


nerves. The therapy involves injecting the combination of stem cells and Schwann cells directly into the injured area in the spine. Olby hopes to see improvement in the dogs that receive stem-cell therapy that will lead to a new treatment for paralyzed dogs. In order to benefit dogs, the therapy must generate new cells to do the work of damaged ones. After treatment, dogs are evaluated to assess changes in their ability. “It’s still early. We’ve only treated five dogs, and the scoring of their function will be done by blinded observers to allow objective assessment of the effectiveness of the treatments, but we are seeing promising results,” Olby says. Though Tobi still uses a cart to go outside and to stand up when eating, Tucker is pleased with the results of his treatment. “He can move his legs more and can push his feet forward a little,” she says. Owners of dogs with Grade 5 spinal cord injuries with complete paralysis are eligible to participate in the clinical trial. For information, please contact Olby at ivddstudy@lists.ncsu.edu.

Two Studies Focus on CAH Owners of dogs diagnosed with chronic active hepatitis (CAH) commonly describe early signs of the disease — poor appetite, intermittent vomiting and lethargy — that could fit several disorders. Many times, owners do not learn their dog has CAH until the disease progresses to a severe condition. While the prevalence of the disease in Poodles is not known, clinicians and genetic researchers are finding that Standards appear to be susceptible due to the disproportionate number brought to veterinary clinics for care. Believed to be a heritable condition, veterinarians caution breeders not to breed affected dogs. “We’re still in the infancy of evaluating this disease in Standard Poodles,” says David Twedt, D.V.M., DACVIM, professor of small animal medicine at Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine. ”We believe that Standards have a higher risk than Toy or Miniature Poodles and than other breeds. We just don’t know what it is.” Funding support from the Poodle Club of America Foundation is helping Twedt to characterize CAH in Standards, with a goal of developing an effective treatment. As Twedt and veterinary resident Allison Bradley, D.V.M., continue to collect tissue samples from affected dogs, they are optimistic they will learn more about the disease and what causes it. Chronic active hepatitis is ongoing inflammation of the liver that results in progressive damage to liver cells. Eventually scar tissue overtakes healthy liver tissue, leading to liver failure and death. Based on their clinical studies, Twedt and Bradley speculate that some dogs with CAH respond well to immunosuppressant therapy, or

medications that reduce inflammation or suppress the immune system. “We’ve had some preliminary success using cyclosporine to treat dogs with CAH,” Twedt says. “It is an immunesuppressing drug that has been shown to stop the ongoing inflammation. Cyclosporine has an advantage over corticosteroids as it has fewer side effects, although a disadvantage is it is more expensive.” Stem-cell therapy may provide a future treatment alternative. Researchers at the Center for Regenerative Medicine at Colorado State University already are experimenting with implanting new liver cells derived from stem cells in patients with liver disease or damage. “We have harvested stem cells, and we’re trying to make them into hepatocytes or hepatocyte precursors,” explains Twedt. “Stem cells may actually generate new liver cells. They may also have an effect in decreasing inflammation. We are still quite a ways from clinical application in individual dogs.” Geneticist Mark Neff, Ph.D., director of the Program for Canine Health and Performance at the Van Andel Institute in Grand Rapids, Mich., is collecting DNA samples from all varieties of affected Poodles to study the inheritance pattern. The goal of identifying a linked marker potentially could lead to identification of the causative gene mutation. Neff thinks Standard Poodles are likely to

have a genetic predisposition to CAH based on breed predilection. “It is possible the gene has penetrated the adjacent gene pools of Toy and Miniature Poodles, despite the fact CAH is not commonly observed in these dogs,” Neff says. “With the modest cohort that we have, we’re seeing what we refer to as ‘trending toward significance,’” Neff says. “We haven’t achieved statistical significance, but we’re seeing a couple of regions in the genome that look like they are strong for the mutation. To learn whether there is a real positive association or to eliminate it as a false positive comes down to needing more samples. As few as 12 new cases could make a substantial difference in our findings.” For information about participating in Twedt and Bradley’s research, please contact them at Dachshund Club of America

Monitoring Brachycephlic Stress Most breeders and owners of brachycephalic breeds are aware of the signs of respiratory distress and their breed’s increased susceptibility to heat stress. Unlike dogs with conventional faces, brachycephalic breeds have shortened facial bones without the same proportionate shortening of the overlying soft tissues. The excess soft tissue makes them prone to upper airway obstruction that compromises their ability to take in air. Their inefficient panting and inability to cool down can result in inflamed, swollen airways that lead to a more severe obstruction and further overheating. Recent research by Michael Davis, D.V.M., professor of physiological sciences and director of the Comparative Exercise Physiology Laboratory at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, showed that a dog’s body condition score has an even greater impact on thermoregulation, or the ability to maintain a steady body temperature, than does being a brachycephalic breed. The AKC Canine Health Foundation and several parent clubs helped to fund the research. “Brachycephalic dogs are at greater risk for heat-related illness, presumably due to the structure of their respiratory tract,” Davis explains. “Dogs rely on the respiratory tract to dissipate metabolic heat, and this process is hampered in brachycephalic breeds due to their airway anatomy.” The study confirmed that other factors should be considered as well. “While brachycephaly had an important impact on our research results, body condition score seemed to have a larger impact,” Davis says. “In other words, being overweight is probably more risky than being brachycephalic and a lean brachycephalic dog may not have that much of a risk. The overweight brachycephalic dogs had two strikes against them.” While it is well-known that brachycephalic breeds are at risk of overheating during exercise and in warm climates, the parameters in which they are able to achieve homeostasis, or maintain physiological stability, have not been understood. Davis and his research team set out to identify those parameters. Their study included 200 dogs — 100 brachycephalic dogs and 100 size-matched nonbrachycephalic dogs. Among the brachycephalic breeds were Boxers, Boston Terriers, English and French Bulldogs, Pugs, Japanese Chins, and Shih Tzu. Ten to 20 dogs of each breed were examined. Using a whole-body plethysmograph, a continued on next page...


Research of Canine Diseases continued from page 11 custom-built box similar in size to a dog crate with rapid, sensitive pressure, temperature and humidity sensors, the researchers were able to detect and measure the impact of temperature and humidity changes on dogs by assessing their breathing patterns. The heat stress levels used in the study were based on the maximum allowed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) for dogs being transported by commercial airlines. The research showed that under mild heat stress conditions — 33 degrees Celcius (91.4 degrees Fahrenheit) and 62 percent relative humidity — the brachycephalic dogs were close to overheating. As the intensity of heat stress increased from a normal room temperature, defined as 22 degrees Celcius (71.6 degrees Fahrenheit) and 62 percent relative humidity, to mild heat stress conditions, the brachycephalic dogs overheated sooner than the nonbrachycephalic breeds. “Only a few obese brachycepahlic dogs in our study could not handle the mild heat stress conditions, and they would be in jeopardy if they were transported under those conditions,” Davis says. “More dogs would be in jeopardy if conditions managed to exceed USDA guidelines.” Most enthusiasts who are drawn to brachycephalic breeds realize it is important to take precautions against heat and humid conditions. Thanks to the research of Davis and his team at Oklahoma State University, more is known today about the parameters that define the risk of heat stress. Keeping brachycephalic dogs in ideal body condition goes a long way to help prevent respiratory problems.

Cleft Lip and/or Palate in Dogs The Bannasch laboratory in the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of California, Davis is conducting a study to identify the genes responsible for cleft lip and/ or cleft palate in dogs. These are common birth defects characterized by the failure of the lip and/or mouth to fuse during development. Individuals born with these conditions can have difficulty nursing, and as a result, cannot obtain enough nourishment on their own or can develop pneumonia. As a result, puppies are often euthanized following the discovery of cleft lip and/or palate due to their special needs and the high costs of caring for them. In order to identify the genes involved and to prevent these defects in future generations, our laboratory is in need of DNA samples from Cleft lip and/or palate affected dogs or puppies, parents and littermates of cleft lip and/or palate affected dogs. For more information, sample collection, and shipping instructions please contact Zena Wolf at ztwolf@ucdavis.edu.

In Matthew Breen’s lab at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, you won’t see dogs in cages, not even those that are sick with cancer and will soon die. Instead you will find microscopes. And under those microscopes, cells, and within those cells, chromosomes, the building blocks of what our dogs are. Specifically, you’ll find canine chromosomes being studied to determine just which ones, in which part of an aberrant gene, cause or result from a certain type of cancer. Not just liver cancer, or bone cancer, but lymphosarcoma and hemangiosarcoma. Breen, who got his doctorate in 1990 from the University of Liverpool and spent years developing techniques that supported the mapping of the canine genome, is helping dogs recover from cancer – one cell at a time.

Nature’s Filing Cabinets Cytogenetics, Breen’s field of study, is complicated. The name pretty much gives that away. Fortunately, he offers an excellent analogy to make it easier to understand. Think of your dog’s genome – all the genetic material that dictates its color, size, head shape, tail length, coat type, etc. – as a filing cabinet, Breen says. “All animals have a particular amount of DNA that comprises their genome,” he says. “During speciation and evolution, genomes are reorganized into what I refer to as nature’s biology filing cabinets. “The filing cabinet represents the genome. Your entire cabinet is alphabetized or organized in some system. If you want to pull out good restaurants in Boston, you know what drawer it’s in…which chromosome. The hanging files effectively represent the genes within the chromosome. The file inside is the sequence of the genes. “Sometimes the filing system gets reorganized. In addition to not being able to find what you want, the file is actually in the wrong drawer or in the wrong place in the same drawer.” When that sequence is out of place, “the genes start to interact with each other in a way they wouldn’t have done,” he says.

An Early Inspiration That’s exactly what happened to Breen’s Border Collie-Terrier mix, Penny, when Breen was 12 years old. To this day, at age 46, he can see the vet’s face when remembering. “He said, ‘There’s nothing more we can do.’” Another family dog, a Border Collie-Rough Collie cross, Peggy, also died of cancer, though she was older. “In college, I thought, ‘There’s got to be more to this.’” In 1995 Breen started to explore that possibility as he worked to help develop a canine genome map, the precursor to the 2004 project which he and many others conducted to generate a complete genome sequence map of the dog. During those years in England, though, as he worked on the map, he says, “I never thought for a minute we’d get the money to sequence the canine genome.”

Sequencing Changes the Game That sequencing, however, changed the world for those studying illness in dogs – and, as it turns out, in people too. “The availability of a high-quality full-genome sequence for the dog, largely due to the efforts of Dr. [Kerstin] Lindblad-Toh’s team at the Broad Institute in Boston, revolutionized the way we are able to approach canine genetics,” he says. “Imagine the genome sequence being printed on the pages of a book. My own lab played a key role in stamping page numbers on each page, then helping develop a contents page. Now that we know how the dog genome is organized in healthy dogs, we are able to look at how the genome is reorganized in dog cancer cells.” In terms of cancer, one of the biggest breakthroughs since the sequencing project was “proving conclusively that chromosomal changes in a variety of cancers are shared between humans and dogs,” he says. “Effectively, we and dogs are just different organizations of the same collection of ancestrally related genes.” For example, in human meningioma – an intracranial malignancy – a characteristic chromosome change involves over 500 genes on human chromosome 22. Dogs get the same tumors and also have several hundred genes involved. “However, only about 10 of these genes are shared with humans. So what we showed is that if we consider dogs and people as one, then look at what overlaps, it’s those shared genes that highlight the major drivers in the cancer process. At a practical level, this approach allows us to reduce the number of genes we need to look at to find new treatments, going from several hundred to just a handful.” Another reason studying the canine disease makes sense is that cancers that are rare in humans continued on page 41....

Joanne Kephart 1942 - 2012 submitted by Nan Waters

J

oanne Kephart crossed the Rainbow Bridge early in the morning on June 29. Early morning was always one of Joanne’s favorite times of day, and she died the way she lived surrounded by the dogs she loved. Just one week earlier, Joanne’s beloved ‘Bobby’ (Ch. Laddland High Flyer) had died, and doubtless he was waiting for her to show her the way. Joanne said that Bobby was the last of her husband John’s dogs and his death marked the end of a cycle. Joanne was devoted to dachshunds; she was devoted to breeding excellent dogs with excellent temperaments. She had been breeding and showing dachshunds since 1968. Born Joanne Karlovic, she married John Kephart in 1981; and together they set about establishing the line of Kephart dachshunds. Dog shows were a great shared joy for both John and Joanne, and John Kephart handled many of their dogs to their championships himself. They started with two foundation bitches: Braaehaus Begin the Begine and Ch. Tanzee’s Many Moods. Begin the Begine was the mother of Ch. Kephart’s Marauder and Ch. Kephart’s Rhapsody who were the first dachshunds to have the Kephart kennel name. Breeding Marauder to Many Moods, and breeding one of their sons, Ch. Kephart’s Cherokee, to Rhapsody set a definite type for the line. One of Joanne’s great joys came when Kaye Ladd moved to Pennsylvania in the 1990’s which enabled the breeding of a Marauder X Many Moods daughter, Ch. Kephart’s Mood Indigo, to Laddland A Wing and a Prayer. Around this time, John Kephart became ill with pancreatic cancer; he rallied with treatment and was able to keep on breeding and showing their dogs for almost 6 more years. After John’s death in 2002, Joanne continued breeding and showing. She continued the theme of naming her dogs after songs; she said she had a lot of fun naming her dogs. This year, her kennel contained three High Flyer daughters: Ch. Laddland Dotes On You (Dotie), Kephart’s Encore (Caroline) and Kephart’s Satin Doll (Lena). These bitches bred to Ch. Kephart’s Michael (Ivan, who died in February 2012) produced Ch. Kephart’s Kaw Liga II (Jaeger), Ch. Kephart’s Nightingale (Billy), GCh. Kephart’s Moonlight (Dexter), Ch. Kephart’s Stardust (Isabel) and Ch. Kephart’s Orange Blossom Special (Abigail). A breeding of Moonlight to Satin Doll in fall 2011 produced a lovely litter that are just starting their show careers with Joanne’s long time friend and handler Betty Jo Patterson. For Joanne, her dogs always came first, and she made certain they would be well taken care of if she died. All of Joanne’s beloved dogs have been willed to Betty Jo and to Joanne’s dear friend Michelle Lucy and are being loved and cared for. Joanne Kephart was a great and kind lady who was absolutely committed to the betterment of the breed. She and her husband made many lasting contributions to the breed. Her advice to someone starting out in dachshunds nowadays was: Study your pedigrees, read the standard, listen to the folks who have been around longer than you have, practice good sportsmanship, take good care of your dogs and love them. For pictures of some of the Kephart dogs please look in these DCA newsletters: December 2002, December 2003, June 2007, Spring 2010, Winter 2011 (Braggin’ Rites).

YgZ I met Joanne Kephart on a very cold Dec. 12, 2007 night after her Dachshund Dotie (Ch. Laddland Dotes on You) whelped a litter of puppies at the veterinary office where I was a Vet tech. Dotie had complications during birth and ended up having a C-section. After being in labor all day, and then having surgery, she was very sore and tired and she did not want to nurse her pups at all. So, the owner of the office (Dr. Williams) told Joanne about me. He said I was great at nursing pups and he would highly recommend me. I spoke with her on the Dachshund Club of America

phone, and she gave me directions to her home where I collected a basket full of puppies (4) to take home to hand raise over the next 5 weeks. My two sons, my fiancé and I woke up every 2 ½ to 3 hours religiously and took care of the pups. Every day I would call Joanne and tell her how things were going. Not really knowing her before then, our connection became that litter. Every day she would teach me more and more about Dachshunds. She would share stories and tell me about her other Dachshunds. She told me about Ivan (Ch. Kephart’s Michael) the father to the litter. She would discuss names with me for the litter. Which came to be Claire (Kephart’s Claire De Lune), Isabel ( Ch Kephart’s Stardust), Dexter ( GCh. Kephart’s Moonlight), and Hazel (Kephart’s Stella By Starlight). She would have so much fun naming her puppies and thinking of themes for the litters. When it was time for me to take the puppies back to Joanne, I cried all the way there and all the way back. I thought maybe that would be the end of my association with Joanne because the litter was back with her; but no, she called me after about 2 days and asked me to come over to see the puppies. After that I was told to stop in any time. She also told me that she wanted my first Dachshund to be a Kephart Dachshund; and that if I were interested she would like to offer me one of these puppies. Well, this was the best news anyone could get. My first dachshund was Claire. Since her, I have 5 other Kephart standard dachshunds, and a Kephart mini dachshund. Joanne was always reading and wanting to learn more. She had “Dachshund “ connections it seemed everywhere in the U.S. Every day I would see her, and she would have news of a dog show or what other breeders were doing elsewhere. She also loved Doberman’s; her email was ‘dobedachs’. She liked to rescue the older ones and let them retire with her. For the past 6 months she had been trying to get my brother who had always wanted a Doberman to adopt one. They filled out the forms for Southwest Ohio Doberman Rescue. She would ask me every day, did your brother get a dobe? I would tell her ‘he will in time, he is continued on next page...

AUTUMN, 2012


Joanne Kephart continued from page 17 not an impulsive person, he plans and prepares’. Joanne never got to be here for me to tell her he finally got dobermans….He adopted hers, Roman & Ashlee. I hope she is looking down and seeing that my brother Michael has her dobes. If he had gone ahead months earlier and adopted a Doberman, he would not of been able to take them. With Joanne I celebrated the Championships, the litters, the GCh.. I would cry when puppies went away to their new homes. I would laugh with Joanne when pictures and stories would be sent by email of the Kephart puppies in their new homes. I was the one who let Oliver GCH CH Kephart’s Moonlight “Dexter” (Ch. Stoneriver Kephart Cognac MS) out of his kennel by mistake, and he went straight for Loretta (Sandar’s Kephart Coal Miner’s Daughter MS). I called Joanne at the Nursing home in a panic because they were tied. All she could do was laugh. I witnessed the birth of Loretta’s 3 puppies, Huey, Dewey & Louie, the only litter of Kephart minis. I changed many, many, many poopy puppy papers, I cooked puppy food down to mash in her best pots and pans, because her puppies deserved the very best. She would spend quality time every day with each puppy in her lap. We would set them on her lap, and they knew to be gentle. They would crawl up real close to her neck and nuzzle her cheek and she would nuzzle them back. I was also with her through the loss of her dachshunds: Penny, Maggie, Ivan, and Bobby & of her beloved Doberman Redd. She loved all her animals. They were blessed to have such a wonderful human mom. And I was blessed to have her in my life. She would have me dig out Dachshund Club of America magazines, and show me pictures of dachshunds she knew and ones she would like to know. She bred for the betterment of the breed, not to make money. That is one thing that really impressed me, she could have had litters all the time; but, unless she had some people interested, she would not. She also was very picky about who adopted. I saw her turn down people based on a gut feeling, despite the money. Her dogs were sold based on word of mouth. I met people who had had Kephart dogs for years and would come back when their beloved pet passed on to get another. I miss her so much, but I feel her with me through her dachshunds who are now my dachshunds. I hear her voice guiding me. I am so sad to have her gone, but I know she is with her dear husband and all of her loved dogs. Michelle Lucy

YgZ I never met Joanne Kephart in person, but over the course of 5 years we became very dear friends. I first contacted her in 2007 when her name was given to me as a reference by someone who wanted to buy a puppy from me. A couple months later, a woman living near Chicago who had bought a puppy from me wrote me and told me he was too ugly to keep and I needed to get him out of her house ASAP. It was the dead Dachshund Club of America

of winter and I live in California. I was at wits end and I sent out an email plea for help to everyone on my mailing list. The next thing I knew, Joanne called me. She told me “ I will rescue your puppy; he will never be so insulted again. “ She arranged for my puppy to be rescued by young friends of hers and brought to safety at her house. When he got there he was 20% -30% underweight, filthy and showing other signs of neglect. Joanne took him in and loved him, and he became her special house dog, Jasper (Kephart Intoto Summer Solstice). Under her care, he became the beautiful dog he promised to be as a puppy. He was with her when she died. This act of kindness to a perfect stranger was typical of Joanne. Her ability to organize a rescue across three states was also typical of her. She had a wide network of friends and she knew who to call when necessary. During and after Jasper’s rescue, Joanne and I talked on the phone every week. She became the first person I called with dog show news both good and bad. She was the first person to whom I would send pictures and pedigrees. We saw each other through the breeding and birth of several litters of her puppies and one litter of mine. We planned show careers and congratulated each other several champions and grand champions. We traded advice on dog health issues. We shared grief at the death of several of her old dogs. Knowing how much she liked to read and that it was hard for her to get out, I got in the habit of packing up a box of books every couple months to send off to her. I loved tucking little surprises like jelly beans, recipes, ceramic magnets or pictures of Sonoma County in with the books. Our conversations always started and ended with dogs but in between we talked about everything else: sports, politics, the economy, spirituality, California wines, teaching, our sons etc. I miss her so much. There is a half packed box of books sitting on my floor with no destination and an empty space in my heart. Nan Waters, Intoto

YgZ “Dear Joanne, As I write, I know you are in heaven--looking upon us all. You were my first human mom that wonderful day, February 15, 2006. My dad was Ch. Laddland High Flyer, Bobby; my mom was Kephart’s Guardian Angel, Sarah. I know you were proud of me. When I finished my breed championship, you said, “Harley, you made my day! “ When I finished my field championship, you said, “John (your deceased husband) always wanted a dual champion. “I am DC Kephart’s Harlequin, your first DC. I hope the owners of all the Ch. Kephart’s... will achieve DC Kephart’s... You would like that. Joanne, we miss you–especially my mom and dad who knew you more than fifteen years. You will be remembered. DC Kephart’s Harlequin, Harley Laddland Walking On Air, Aura (my aunt, Bobby’s littermate sister) Keenose Midnight In Casablanca, Bogart (my first cousin out of Bobby’s brother, Ch. Laddland Feather’s Flyin’) Susan and Peter Botsakis, my human mom and dad”

YgZ Joanne gave me my start in showing Dachshunds. I was looking for a new male dachshund and had called all the listings for pups in the newspaper. When I got to the last one and it was a mini-pup, I expressed my frustration in not finding a standard. The lady was kind enough to give me Joanne’s number. I called Joanne and told her I was looking for a male. She said she had one for sale and kept me talking for 20 minutes. I realized she wasn’t going to sell me this pup and got desperate. I told her the truth that I had just lost 2 sixteen year old dogs and she cut me off right there and said I could have him. From there she gave me great advice and support for showing Jeager (Ch. Kephart’s Kaw-Liga II) and when she said she had a female I couldn’t resist the great temperaments of her bloodlines. I bought Abigail (Ch. Kephart’s Orange Blossom Special) and on her suggestion bought Ch. Keenose Cinnamon Rolls to breed with Jeager.

I was devastated to hear that she was gone. She always listened to my insecurities and gave me the pep talks I needed. She was a great lady and wonderful mentor and a good friend. I will miss her. Tracy Rolls, Dachrolls

YgZ I met Joanne back in February of 2008. I had a litter she wanted to take a look at. So I drove 4 hours and took 6 pups to see her. Snow was falling on parts of the turnpike that day, covering up a lot of the signs I was suppose to see, so I did get lost. She talked me to her house and we met for the first time. What a lovely lady! She sure loved her dogs, both dachshunds and the dobermans. Joanne and I talked quite a bit from that day forward. She took 3 of the pups I brought to her to help me sell them. We co-owned one of them, and I showed and finished Annarose (Ch. Kephart Keenose Kewpie Doll). Joanne and I were friends that talked just about every day, I made numerous day trips as I called them to visit. 4 hours there, a few hours to visit, then 4 hours home! We had a lot in common when it came to the dogs, and also our outlooks on other things. She really knew what she was doing in her breeding program, and I hope I will be honoring the one breeding that we planned for Annarose as soon as she comes in season. It should be a beautiful breeding. I would love to carry out what Joanne wanted. I will miss our talks, and I will miss Joanne very much. Susan Hough, Keenose

YgZ Nearly five years ago we made contact with Joanne Kephart through a previous show acquaintance. My boyfriend Jeremy and I love the standard smooth dachshunds and couldn’t find anyone breeding quality dogs in our area. We made contact with Joanne and went to Ohio to meet her and discuss getting a puppy. We fell in love with the kind personalities of Joanne and her dachshunds. We enjoyed swapping favorite stories and photos of my days showing dachshunds and learning about her line and their show history. As I was sitting on her floor reading an article she pointed out, her 13 year old black-and-tan dachshund Frankie (Ch. Kephart’s Unforgettable) came over behind the magazine and nudged it out of my hands seeking out attention. It brought tears to my eyes as I was remembering how this was the personality that I had loved from my past dachshunds. Frankie’s actions and my response sealed Joanne’s approval that we would make a loving home for one of her beautiful dogs. We were given a tour of the kennels and allowed to meet all the dogs and see the legacy that she built. When we came back to pick up our red girl Hazel (Kephart’s Stella by Starlight), she had a bright pink flower around her neck and came with puppy goodies and even a baby blanket. We were so touched at how Joanne and her valued caregivers had gone above and beyond and made this experience so wonderful! From that day forward we referred to her as “Mama Joanne “ when speaking of her to Hazel. We kept in touch with emails, pictures, and phone calls. In the last five years we loved Hazel and her personality so much that this past November we added a little boy black-and-tan named Cole (Kephart’s Honky Tonk Moon). My boyfriend, his parents, their Great Dane named Abbey, and myself all made a holiday trip out of picking Cole up. Joanne welcomed us all with open arms and we were fortunate enough to share a Thanksgiving meal with Joanne and her dachshunds. We will be forever grateful for the time and the memories we were able to share with Joanne and all that we learned. She was a wonderful and kind woman who left an amazing legacy that will live on through her beloved dachshunds and those who were fortunate enough to call her a friend. Sarah Stankus, Jeremy Warfel, Hazel & Cole

YgZ Joann Kephart and I started in the dog business at the same time. We both shared our love for the Dachshunds that we were breeding then. Joanne was a gentle and kind woman and very much herself. Her husband John was devoted to her and did many things for her to make Dachshund Club of America

her life easier. I remember going to their home for dinner, and John cooked and served the whole meal which was delicious. We had a very good time; he took such good care of her. I don’t believe that Joanne has ever been to my home, but I visited her home many times. I can verify that she was devoted to her dogs and took extremely good care of them. We have spent many hours on the phone 3 or 4 times a week discussing future plans for breeding, showing, and caring for her dogs. I remember at one time Joanne’s favorite dog was Kephart’s Black Rose who I co-owned with her. Rose was a climber & often you would find her on top of the piano. We would both laugh; we thought the funny things dogs do were quite entertaining. Ch. Kepharts Black Rose was bred to Kephart’s Kaw-Liga. She was the mother of Ch. Kephart’s Red Hawk who was the father of Ch. Kephart’s Michael who is the father of all the current generation: Dexter, Isabel, Billy etc. I am very old and my memory is very fragile, but I can say Joanne Kephart was a woman of fine quality who loved her dogs very much. I will miss Joanne very much. Ruth Brown

YgZ I can’t remember exactly where or when I met Joanne, but it was when I was editor of Dachshund Variety at a DCA Nationals in Ohio. There was such a connection between us that I felt like I had known her forever. We fell out of contact when her husband was ill. After his death, Kaye Ladd decided to finish the Kephart’s beloved Bobby (Ch. Laddland High Flyer), and I had the honor to be the judge who gave him his championship at the show in Canfield, Ohio. Joanne loved that dog! After High Flyer finished she contacted me again, and we renewed our friendship. She was so changed by the death of her husband, but when we got back in touch again, it was like we had never been parted. I will miss those long phone conversations; sometimes they started in the daylight and ended around midnight. We would discuss the merits and demerits of the breed and of breeding programs for hours. Joanne was a keen & conscientious student of the breed and enjoyed dissecting pedigrees. She was a loving and generous caregiver to her dogs, both dachshunds and dobermans. She would accept without reservation any dachshund that Ch. Kephart’s Michael “Ivan” needed rescue and help. Joanne was a cheerful, intelligent woman in spite of a disability that kept her from being active and frustrated her because she couldn’t go to the dog shows she loved. She is, no doubt, in a better place now; she is across that Rainbow Bridge with her husband, John, and with her all her beloved dogs who have crossed before her. God Bless You, Joanne. We will miss you so much. We will see you bye and bye. Jane Watkins

The Barn Hunt! There is just way too much to do outside with a versatile dachshund these days! In addition to the AKC events, we now have a plethora of non-affiliated activities available to use up every one of the 52 weekends a year. We have nose work, fly ball, blood tracking and I am sure many more of which I am unaware, and probably some “underground” events which would surprise us all! I was thrilled to discover one of these “alternate” sports: the “Barn Hunt.” I think the terriers have been at this informally for a long time, but it was new to me. A club’s judges weren’t able to fulfill their assignments, so I got an email requesting judges for a Barn Hunt fun trial. Any AKC, JRTCA or AWTA earthdog judge can judge a Barn Hunt. Since my local club, the Dachshund Fanciers of Southwestern Washington (www.dfsw.org) is all about training every member to be able to judge earthdog and field trials and anything else that comes along, we were all about trying this! Members Christina, Martina and Laura were game for the experience. Christina took the Saturday shift. Sunday, Martina, Laura (our club photographer par excellence) and I all piled into my truck and off we drove the 3 hours to Auburn, WA to see what the fuss was all about. The Barn Hunt is a re-creation of the bad old days when roving ratters would arrive at a farm and offer ratting services with their gnarly terriers and other varmint killers. After all, rats are the raison d’être for a lot of dogs. It’s nice for dogs who don’t get to rat in a rural setting to get to use that genetic heritage every now and then. While capsule work and barn hunting has been offered in haphazard various ways at earthdog tests for a while now, the structured “Barn Hunt” game is the brainchild of Robin Nuttall, a delightful woman who is enthusiastic and approachable. She has a Facebook presence and a website which reflect her and her fans’ excitement about this very democratic new sport. Search for Barn Hunt Association, LLC on Facebook and the website is www.barnhunt.com. Ms. Nuttal also wrote a great article for Best in Show Daily which can be read here: http://www.bestinshowdaily.com/ blog/2012/07/the-start-of-a-new-dog-sport-barnhunt/. You Tube is filled with Barn Hunt videos taken by proud doggy owners. While surfing for Barn Hunt peripherals, I also found a place to buy PVC Barn Hunt rat tubes and Barn Hunt dog Ts! When there are products being sold,

by Claire Mancha you know the event is a winner. Truly the Barn Hunt has arrived! This particular Barn Hunt fun trial was held in conjunction with a UKC conformation event. This was a great call as many of the show dogs were able to strut their dog show selves at a down and dirty game with their owners which we all know makes dogs very happy! We had a huge entry of wanna be barn ratters. There was a very happy energy in the air, both from dogs and their people. The set up of the game is this: A 20 x 20 area is fenced and then loaded up with bales of straw / hay/ grass, what have you. The bales are stacked singly and 2 high so there is variation in height and there are openings made between the bales to make short tunnels. This can be set up in a barn, under pops ups or out in nature. The area must be securely fenced. The bales of straw, rats, capsules and fencing are all the equipment you need to put on this game. That’s it! Any club can do it! It’s inexpensive and can really raise money. Why? Because people love it! It’s exciting and any dog that fits in an 18 x 18 inch tunnel made of 3 bales of hay can play. It also can be put on with minimal space. Yes, the days of purebred-only events are waning and the star of any owner being able to play with any dog is rising! In the past, having a registered dog was a status symbol; today rescuing a dog from a shelter is the fashion. We can have fun and raise money for our clubs and create a lot of good will by keeping our minds open to this state of affairs. Unlike earthdog where a cathedral silence reigns at the den, the Barn Hunt testing area is audience friendly and the onlookers are allowed to cheer the dogs and handlers on. The energy is high and positive! As in earthdog, there is no dog vs. dog competition so the participants are Dachshund Club of America

31st Annual Specialty Show Dachshund Fanciers Association of Berks County November 18, 2012 Closes October 31, 2012

Berks County 4-H Community Center, Reading, PA Conformation & Junior Showmanship Judge: Dan Harrison Sweepstakes Judge: Richard W. Powell For additional information contact: Jim Rau Dog Shows, Ltd., Superintendent P.O. Box 6898 • Reading, PA 19610-0898 • (610) 376-1880 • info@raudogshows.com

Solving the Cancer Puzzle continued from page 12 may be much more common in dogs, Breen says. He cites bone cancer as an example. “Fewer than 1,000 people are diagnosed with bone cancer each year, while maybe 50,000 dogs are. We ignore whether it’s in dogs or people, focus on the cancer, and get to the biology faster.” Breen says the model is working. “It’s working pretty well. In the next three to five years, there will be some tremendous advances in what we know about the genetic basis for cancer. Most of that will come from dogs, then used to help people.”

From Diagnosis to Prognostication While traditional pathology – looking at tissues under a microscope – is good for diagnosing disease, when Breen and others started looking at the chromosomes within a cell, they could see that they were “reorganizing in particular patterns,” he says. “That kind of tells us that it’s not just random. If the genetic makeup of those cancers is highly similar between patients, one has to question whether it is random. “When we always find a particular chromosome alteration associated with a specific cancer in dogs, it’s now classified as diagnostic,” he says. “Now, when we have a whole barrage of information about which of those patients responded to which kind of chemotherapy, the field moves from diagnosis to prognostication.” The aberration of that particular chromosome allows Breen to identify which therapies will offer “maximum survival chances.” While it’s unlikely that pharmaceutical companies will develop drugs specifically for canine cancers, they will plough money into new therapies if they can benefit people. The types of chromosomal changes seen in dog cancers are exactly the same as those seen in human cancers. And, as it turns out, the same drugs that cure some human cancers will cure the same canine cancers. “It’s given us a new opportunity to go into the cancers that our dogs get, Dachshund Club of America

and instead of just saying to the mums and dads of the dogs, ‘Your dog’s got cancer, and there’s very little we can do,’ we can say, ‘Your dog has this particular kind of cancer with this particular abnormality,’ and we can prolong the life of their dogs with a paramount quality of life.” However, treatment does not yet exist for every type of cancer that will benefit every dog diagnosed with it. “Personally, I would not treat my dogs’ cancer if the only treatment is one that would make them feel really, really sick,” he says. The question is: Will this treatment have a significant effect on its quality of life? Will it give six to 12 months of life with a wagging tail, not six to 12 months with a poor quality of life? “Genomics is providing us with the opportunities to think of new options,” Breen says. “It is interesting to consider that some of the major discoveries in cancer research over the next few years may actually come from studies of cancer in our pet dogs. Dogs have been our loyal companions for thousands of years, and are still here today to help us unlock some of nature’s most intriguing puzzles about cancers. We owe them a great deal.” Susan Chaney has been on the editorial side of publishing since 1990, starting her career as a newspaper features writer and editor. A lifelong lover of dogs, Susan has lived with German Shepherds, Labs, Yorkies, an Irish Setter, a Great Dane-Bloodhound mix, a Sheltie and currently a Chihuahua mix of unknown pedigree. She was the editor of Dog Fancy magazine, content editor of DogChannel.com and group editor of Dog World, Dogs USA, Puppies USA, Natural Dog, Cat Fancy, Cats USA and Kittens USA from March 2005 to December 2009 when she left her position to work at home, part-time.

Littermates Stella and Trooper completed the requirements for their DCA Versatility Award on the same day!

Stella and Trooper are from a litter of 9 of which 5 have been shown to titles. Their pedigree is dotted with DC titles so I guess you can say performance is in their blood. Attaining their conformation championships was the easiest, as they both finished with mutiple specialty majors. Field was the most fun, as they were both naturals and Stella voices. The agility was the most difficult since I had never done it before, and was the one goofing them up. Now age 5, hopefully both will earn a few more titles for more alphabet soup after their names.

Fred and I began, both as novices, in the conformation ring when he was about nine months old. He eventually earned twelve points including one major. We soon began taking obedience classes, and he qualified for his Novice A leg on his first birthday. He later earned his CGC and CDX. During this time, we discovered his favorite activity, agility, where he titled in both standard and preferred. After attempts at both earthdog and field trials, Fred earned his tracking title in 2004, qualifying him for the DCA Versatility Award. While Fred always worked to please me, his reward was a few throws of his beloved red ball. When it became only a little piece of red rubber, he would never accept even an exact replica. Today at almost fourteen, he is responsible for keeping the yard free of squirrels, greeting me at the end of my workdays with a wagging tail and warming my bed. We have enjoyed training, performing and just being together, and I have been proud of him every day, regardless if we were competing or not.

TRIATHLON,

such a simple word... but that single word it describes years of teamwork and effort between dedicated handlers and wonderfully multi-talented dogs. For the uninitiated I offer a “simple” explanation of the DCA triathlon. Work + Work + Work + More Work = LOADS OF FUN!! For a little longer explanation... in order to compete in the Triathlon a handler and dog must PARTICIPATE in at least three of the five performance and companion sports events (Tracking, Earth Dog, Field Trials, Obedience/Rally, and Agility). To QUALIFY in

the Triathlon the dog must successfully Qualify in at least three of the five events and be judged with an acceptable conformation (i.e must look like a reasonable dachshund). This competition only takes place at DCA Nationals each year and only the official DCA events count toward the Triathlon. (e.g. a Host Club Field Trial held in association with DCA does not count) Points are awarded for qualifying scores and dogs who qualify at the higher levels earn more points than those qualifying at the lower levels. For example, qualifying in Master Earth Dog is worth more points than qualifying in Senior Earth Dog. At the end of the competition, the dog with the highest combined score that has qualified in at least three events is the Triathlon Dog of the Year. Every participant is usually recognized with a medallion, the Qualifiers receive a Certificate, and the Triathlon Winner receives a commemorative plaque but all of them have supreme bragging rights! After all, this competition is tough and in order to qualify in three events, the dog and handler have usually spent years in training.

DCA TRIATHLON AWARD PROGRAM Effective June 5, 2010 The Dachshund Club of America understands that the events held in conjunction with our National Specialty are more than just conformation. In an effort to promote the entire dachshund and showcase the versatility of our breed, DCA is awarding Triathlon awards to the dachshunds which distinguish themselves in performance and/or companion events at the National Specialty. Any dachshund qualifying in three or more different performance and/or companion event categories plus the Triathlon Conformation Evaluation will be recognized by the DCA with a Certificate of Achievement. The highest combined scoring dog will receive the title “DCA Triathlon Dog of the Year”. SCORING OF THE EVENTS Dogs may use the points earned from one class or test per category. Obedience and Rally are combined to form a single category for Triathlon purposes.

As you know, sports like Agility, Obedience and Rally can take a considerable amount of time to train to prepare for competition. For sports such as Earth Dog and Field Trials some dogs may work naturally and require little training, but no dog can win the Triathlon if they only do well in those two events. At DCA 2012 we had 13 awesome teams competing in three or more events. Lots of dogs qualified in one or two events but only one team was able to qualify in three events. Zod, DC Scoshire Scherizade O’ Siddachs, CD, JE, CGC, TDI, a mini wire girl owned by Connie Fisher, earned the coveted title of Triathlon Dog of the Year by taking an NBQ (Next Best Qualified) in the Field, qualifying in Junior Earth Dog, and qualifying in Novice Obedience. Truly a remarkable accomplishment! Please read the inspiring story of Zod on the next page. We look forward to seeing many more of you with your own WonderDogs next year!

Two or more judges rating the dog “Fail” will disqualify the dog from the Triathlon competition. AKC conformation Champions of record will automatically be granted 3 points and be excluded from the conformation evaluation process. ADDITIONAL RULES AND ADMINISTRATION * Neutered/spayed dachshunds are eligible to compete. * ILP dogs are eligible to compete and can earn a Certificate of Achievement, but are not eligible for Triathlon Dog of the Year. * Entry in three or more DCA National performance and/or companion categories shall constitute an entry in the Triathlon. There is no entry fee. * Any dachshund not able to participate in the Conformation Evaluation portion of the Triathlon shall be considered ineligible for competition. * Only those scores earned in the DCA National performance and/or companion events shall count. Host shows and Regional events held in conjunction with the DCA National shall not be considered a part of the Triathlon event. * The DCA Board shall appoint a Triathlon Chairman who shall select a Committee to administer the program. The Committee shall be charged with the responsibility of developing a tracking system, prepare advertising, necessary forms and the general coordination of the program.

Heart to Heart. . . “Zod” The story of a very special little Dachshund By Connie Fisher

My first introduction to DC Scoshire Scherizade O’Siddachs, CD, JE, CGC, TDI was not unlike many of the other times I shared with Sidney Stafford – it was quite unforgettable. We had gathered for the Bay Colony and DALI Dachshund Field Trials at the Little Rhody Beagle Grounds in September 2008 where I was to judge both days. The weather that weekend was utterly deplorable. Pouring, driving rain for most of the trial and I had clothing spread out from one end of my RV to another to get it partially dry enough to wear on the next go out. When we got a little break in the downpours, Sid and I decided to take our puppies to the puppy pen. She got there first and had the little puppy she told me was going to be her “old lady dog” with her – her name was Zod. I had my puppy girl Ruby. Sid was stomping around in her raincoat, looking for a rabbit to put her little girl on a scent line, encouraging Zod to dive under the brush. Ruby came bounding in, quite like the tom boy she is and when Zod came out from under the brush her initial reaction was to pounce on Zod thinking she was the bunny she had scented. When she did, poor Zod squealed and Sid rushed to snatch her up in her arms like a protective mother bear. I was so upset with Ruby, but Sid, always wanting the dogs to have a positive experience, said not to scold Ruby, Zod was just startled and we encouraged both puppies to continue to play and hunt in the puppy pen. Fast forward two years, after many more field trials and dog shows where Sid and I shared time together. We planned to see each other at another field trial in the fall of 2010. But I had a conflict and couldn’t go. Then I got the phone call that like many of life’s events, you remember exactly where you were and what you were doing when you got that call. Sid called to tell me that she wasn’t going either. That the shingles she thought she had was actually a tumor on her lungs. I was devastated…my dearest friend...I pulled to the side of the road and wept. I wanted to hug her right then and there and tell her that she would be alright. Sid began radiation therapy shortly thereafter, but in November, she learned that the cancer had metastasized into her bones. She asked me what I would do…have chemo or not. She knew this wasn’t something that anyone but she herself could decide whether or not to do. I told her that I would do absolutely anything I could do to help her fight this and decided that all of my personal time and vacation would be spent with her. I drove to NY the day after Christmas following a massive snow storm to be with her when she had her first chemo. Her spirits were good and we laughed, shared stories, went to the movies, and brought in the New Year with hopes and prayers for her recovery. She talked about her three little wirehaired Dachshunds, ViVi, Butter and of course Zod, who at this time shared Sid’s bed and had fully entrenched herself as Sid’s “heart dog”. Sid proudly showed me a few of the obedience commands she was beginning to do with Zod. I made many more trips to Long Island to help care for Sidney and to allow her daughter to return to Paris and her family for a while. The last few trips became increasing hard as Sid began to lose her fight against Dachshund Club of America

the cancer. During one of those trips, Sidney asked me if I would take Zod; she knew that I was getting back into more and more of the performance events. I told Sid I would be honored to have Zod and, through our mutual tears, that I couldn’t even look at Zod and not see her. Zod has the same soulful eyes as Sidney had on that day. I promised Sid I would get Zod’s CD – since that had to be first goal according to Sidney and I promised I would continue to do as much with Zod as I could to carry on for her. On my last trip to be with Sidney, Brent, Sidney’s daughter said that Zod had stopped eating. When I got there, this dear sweet dog came running to me as I came in the door, barking in her usual protective way and then wagging her tail when she saw me. I told her that I knew how sad she was, but that she had to eat and that she would always have a home and be much loved. I brought Zod to Virginia in April 2011 after losing the dearest and best friend I had ever had and we began the process of healing each other’s sorrow. DCA was around the corner and Gary encouraged me to work through my grief and focus on the commitment and promises I had made to Sid. After allowing Zod to acclimate to her new home here, we spent many evenings going to one of the buildings at the Frederick County Fairgrounds where Gary and I teach handling classes. I began working on the obedience commands I remembered from nearly 30 years ago when I first put a CD on one of my dogs and the few commands that I knew Sid had used for “finish” and “come”. Gary was the “task master” and never allowed me to quit. DCA entries were due and we decided I should go to Wisconsin and attempt to get Zod’s first leg toward her CD. Not a particularly stellar performance, but I knew Sid was watching and somehow we managed to squeak by with our first leg. I nearly DQ’d I was so excited as I stopped myself from reaching down to pick Zod up and kiss her profusely!! We were now on our way and I had a definite goal in front of me. In the fall of 2011, Zod and I flew to Ohio and she got her 2nd leg toward her CD. She would have completed her title at the second trial they had on the same day, but she decided (or maybe Sid had a hand in it!) that I wasn’t going to get off that easy and finish in three straight trials. She sat down on her stand for exam, so that meant more practice and another trial. In the months between DCA 2011 and 2012, Zod and I continued to work on several other pursuits and performance activities. We also got Zod’s CGC and TDI. We practiced dragging bunnies, building up her confidence to leave me and follow the scent once again. She already had her field title, but hadn’t been in the field for quite some time and never with me as the handler. Then I started working her in the earth dog tunnel we have on our property with our resident rat “Herbie”. I didn’t really know whether Sidney had done any serious earthdog work with Zod, but she immediately went through our tunnel and feverishly worked the rat. As the time approached for DCA 2012, Gary became our “coach” once again and suggested we attempt the Triathlon and enter Zod in the field trial, earthdog trials and try to finish her CD. My initial reaction was “are you kidding... well, I guess we can make that another accomplishment and goal that Sid would have had for her heart dog.” So we loaded the van complete with bedding for me, field clothes, conformation clothes, a microwave, and refrigerator and off I went on our two week quest.

AUTUMN, 2012


At the DCMA host trial, Zod was scored, but wasn’t in the ribbons. I was nervous – she had to do better and be more confident at the DCA Trial in order to get the first Triathlon requirement. She had what I thought was a very good run on Friday and I hoped that at least we might get an AOM. I was shocked when I learned she was NBQ. One event down, two to go. Saturday and Sunday were the Earthdog events. I decide to put her and Fay Wray (my senior girl and Zod’s buddy) in the Intro to Quarry first as a warm up. Fay Wray had been doing our tunnel along with Zod but didn’t have any legs towards her JE. Both girls did the IQ without a hitch. We moved over to the JE tunnel. Now, the real test. Zod and Fay Wray both qualified and got their first legs. It wouldn’t count for Zod though unless she had a repeat performance on Sunday at the DCA Trial. Both girls completely surprised me with qualifying times and work on Sunday. Zod made it to the rat in 9 seconds! She and Fay Wray now had their JE titles in just two trials and Zod had the second requirement towards the Triathlon. Yeah!! We set off Monday morning for Callaway Gardens and the comforts of a room, real bed and bath. I knew that Obedience was probably the weakest link in our journey. As much as we had worked on it, Zod’s heeling exercise wasn’t perfect by far. She had the recall down pat; albeit she insisted on doing an immediate finish, but her stand for examine had been the focus of much of our work since she failed that at the Ohio trial. She just got by with a qualifying score at the DCMA Obedience Trial, but like before, it didn’t count towards the Triathlon. Then I had to make a hard call. Did I go ahead and run Zod in the DCA Obedience Trial or did I show my Veteran girl Fay Wray. The conflict in ring times tugged at my heart. I desperately wanted to show Fay Wray (who Sid had placed with me over a decade ago and was one of her last longhairs). I could pull Fay Wray or I could hand her off, fully aware that she probably wouldn’t show with quite the same enthusiasm as she would have for me. I knew in my heart what the answer to that question had to be. I made a promise to Sid and this would Dachshund Club of America

be something that would have made her extremely proud… a Triathlon qualifier at DCA! So, Fay Wray would be shown by someone else and I would try to have Zod at least be a Triathlon Qualifier. There were only two “potential” dogs who could be Triathlon qualifiers as we went into Friday’s DCA Trial – Zod and Karen Mann’s dog “Tye” and Karen was going into the last event with more points than Zod. We had our work cut out for us. Karen and I gave each other a hug and wished each other success. Zod entered the ring for Novice B. Her heeling was, as had been the case, less than stellar. But she made it through all the exercises without failing including the long sits and downs and got her green ribbon. She was qualified! We sat quietly and watched as Karen entered the ring. Unfortunately for Karen, Tye didn’t qualify and Zod became the DCA Triathlon Dachshund for 2012! Amidst my tears of joy…and heart to heart…Zod and I were slowly healing each other’s grief. She was making her way to becoming my “heart dog” - a special part of Sidney that I will always have with me. Zod did everything I asked her to do and more...for me and for Sidney. I would be terribly remiss if I didn’t acknowledge the many friends and colleagues in the Dachshund Community who also shared in our happiness, supporting and encouraging us along the way including Jean Dieden, Alan James, Lorraine Simmons, Randy Eltringham and especially Jackie Nicholas. Thank you all very much…!

DACHSHUND CLUB OF AMERICA NATIONAL SPECIALTY by Brian Owen

2012 marked the return of DCA to beautiful Callaway Gardens and the Mountain Creek Inn, already an established DCA venue. With scenic views and wonderful accommodations and superior facilities, everyone had the opportunity to stretch out and relax and enjoy the numerous activities. The great success of the events would not have been possible without the help and cooperation of the Dachshund Club of Metropolitan Atlanta, (DCMA), and following is a summary of the many activities that took place at this wonderful venue. Sunday and Monday were check-in days, with hospitality offered on Monday night by DCMA. Breakfast hospitality was also offered each morning courtesy of numerous supporting Clubs. Quite a few vendors were on hand and set up on Monday, as did Foy Trent, the Show Superintendent, who did another fabulous job in settling up all the rings and handling all the paperwork, as he did last year. The rings were spacious and there was plenty of ringside seating. The facilities for these events could not have been any better. Conformation kicked off with back-to-back DCMA Specialty Shows on Tuesday and Wednesday, and the results were as follows: TUESDAY: LONGS – Judge Frederick Vogel (153 entries) BOV/BOB: GCh.

FRIDAY AND SATURDAY: Friday morning began the DCA regular classes, and at the end of the day all the regular classes of all varieties had been completed, along with wirehaired Best of Variety, with the remainder to be completed on Saturday. Later that night the Judges Seminar was held, and then the Ice Cream Social began around 9 p.m., with a big turnout, and some even turned it into an impromptu pajama party! Saturday morning it was back to the rings to complete the DCA judging, and following are the complete results:

As part of the banner contest, the banners that were submitted by all the Clubs were on display on the wall in the ballroom on Tuesday and Wednesday and votes were cast for the most popular. The winning entry was submitted by the Golden Gate Dachshund Club, and it and the 2nd, 3rd, & 4th place banners were returned to the respective Clubs, along with their corresponding monies from voting. The remaining banners were auctioned at the Beach Party. Wednesday night was the Southern Buffet by the Beach Party at the Robin Lake Beach Pavilion, which was just a short drive down from Mountain Creek Inn. An offering of delicious Southern foods was provided, along with live music provided by “The Fabulous Shades”. It was a perfect evening and a good time was had by all and a late night was had by some! Thursday saw the day begin with the annual meeting, which was held at 9:00 a.m, the minutes of which are published separately in the newsletter. DCA sweepstakes began after lunch, with the following results:

After Sweeps, everyone had a chance to take a break and get ready for Friday, except for the DCA Board, who had their annual meeting. During the latter part of the week, Diane McCormack coordinated a silent auction of lovely items which had belonged to the late Barbara Powers, once president of DCA. The proceeds from this auction went directly to the DCA Health and Welfare Trust Fund for the benefit of research into hemangiosarcoma, a horrible cancer from which so many of our beloved dachshunds have died. The details of this auction are included in a separate article included in the newsletter on page 112. Dachshund Club of America

The setting was beautiful, the food was wonderful, and the awards program concluded around 10 p.m., with everyone preparing to depart the next day and looking forward to seeing good friends again next year in St. Louis! _______________________________________

SPRINGTIME IN GEORGIA! What a fabulous location for a dog show, Calloway Gardens in Pine Mountain Georgia, beautiful lakes and gardens waking up to Spring. It was in this setting that I was honoured to be judging 201 Longhairs at the DCA National Specialty, what a wonderful entry and I was looking forward to see what I would find. Being averse to individual critiques, from such a large entry I prefer to give an overall impression of this assignment and mention just a few dogs who to me were standouts. The ring for the Longhairs was not to my liking as it was far too small and the plastic covering did not suit all of the exhibits, however, the soundest moving exhibits did prevail. I loved judging the regular conformation classes, it is gratifying to see these dogs and bitches commencing their show careers. I had no trouble in finding the type and conformation I was looking for. The winner of the 12-18 month dog class was an outstanding well balanced, well conditioned 17 month old with a beautiful conical shaped head and lovely expression, he possessed the correct front assembly, strong body with ample ribbing well back and an unexaggerated rear with correct tail set, he did not disappoint on the move using his correct conformation to move effortlessly around the ring with reach and drive while holding a level topline. I had no hesitation in awarding him Winners Dog setting the benchmark for the rest. Equally impressive was the Winners Bitch, a neatly packaged Mini-Long with lovely conformation proven with superb movement front and rear. These remarks in no way take anything away from my Reserve winners and class

placements in which I found much quality. I love the support and respect shown to the Veterans all of whom I was delighted with still having the zest for showing and loving it. My eventual veteran in show was GCh. DC Dachaven Maverick O’Siddachs a super quality dog rising 10 years closely followed by Ch. Souvenir of Wagsmore, a superb Mini-Long, I have had the pleasure of seeing at his best during his illustrious career. Of the veteran ladies we cannot overlook DCh. Stardust Guten Morgan V Skaer CD RE, what a star at 13 years old. I just loved her. The next day saw an entry of 62 in the Best of Variety competition with indeed some lovely exhibits making the most of what they possessed. Each excelled on different points, but I was looking for overall balance and sound conformation giving rise to correct movement. I found proper fronts wanting with the shoulders set far too forward and too short in upper arm, hindquarters moving away was also disconcerting, I was looking for a clean movement with rear pads clearly seen. On side movement too many lacked good follow through with the dogs moving on rear pasterns. Overall nice head and expression was evident although some heads were rather broad and plain and some with flewed lips and lack of strength in underjaw which is not typically Dachshund. I was especially pleased with my Best of Variety, Opposite Sex, and Select Dog and Bitch all lovely Longhairs having the front I wanted fitting correctly onto sound bodies and showing a clean pair of heels moving away. One dog I should mention, as I liked him a lot, is GCh. Briardachs Rock Star, a striking dog, beautifully presented and handled, not quite the front assembly of the winners in front of him nonetheless he well deserved my first award of merit. I have no doubt on another day he would prevail at the highest level. To be drawn to judge Best of Breed was a delightful surprise especially as I have owned and exhibited all three standard varieties so I was able to judge each winner on their own merit. I congratulate the other two Variety judges on their choices, each winner displayed true Dachshund type as one would expect at this level. The Smooth, Ch. Diagram Isn’t She Lovely V Brownwood, was a lovely and very feminine bitch with the Wire, Ch. Legibach Captain Crunch SW, by contrast every inch a male with a good strong coat. Each of these three exhibits was already a winner having reached the highest award of their variety, no mean feat, but the Longhair in my opinion outclassed the other two with his sound movement and total absence of any exaggeration. The Smooth easily accounted for Opposite Sex to the Breed. It was a big call to award Best of Breed from the classes but if this young dog is an example of the youngsters coming through the ranks, and there were many, it means the variety is on the up. Congratulations to his breeders and connections obviously judiciously following a sound breeding practice. His owner also advised that he is well pointed toward his field title which is a huge double achievement. I thoroughly enjoyed my assignment and thank continued on next page...

What does it take to be a great earthdog? As earthdog owners, trainers and judges can attest, it takes a unique set of characteristics that come from the very heart and soul of a dachshund – regardless of its size. Whether five pounds or thirty five pounds, they enter the earth with reckless abandon, make turns in the dark, follow scent lines that can be scarce or overwhelming, and proceed with amazing speed through the 9˝ x 9˝ tunnel sections of different lengths designed to challenge their nose. When you say (or even whisper) the word “Rat” to an earthdog, you can see the alertness, the power and the amazing courage in their eyes. You can feel the determination and focus in their tenacious pulling, lurching, and thrashing bodies when you attempt to restrain them while they “impatiently” wait for their turn to enter the earth. And as you release them, you can feel your own version of anxiousness as you watch them disappear into the darkness of the tunnel where you know they have as little as 30 seconds to find and hold their prey. They are your partner. They find their prey underground and tell you with their working style – digging, barking, chewing, lunging – where to dig. You are elated, and relieved when they complete their job and meet the high standards of the AKC Earthdog Test rules. Whew! Your hands are in the air. You are jumping for joy! You’re screaming “I knew you could do it!!” Yes, earthdogs are a special breed within our breed. Not all dachshunds are cut out for this kind of work: finding and working prey underground, through 30 feet of forward progress, complete with at least three 90 degree turns, and at more advanced levels, false dens, false exits, and obstacles that approximate those that are found on a real hunt. It’s easy to see how you can get addicted to this exciting sport and how your dog is hoping every day that you will take him or her out to “find the rats.” As their proud owners will tell you, this year’s DCA Earthdog Test qualifiers have “fire” in their bellies, unrelenting focus, and determination that inspired those who watched them at work. Some had it naturally. Others had great trainers and plenty of opportunity for practice. What they all had in common was they all worked hard at achieving this level of Dachshund Club of America

At the 2012 DCA Earthdog Test, we were privileged to watch 110 of our dachshunds work hard to meet the high standards set for AKC earthdogs. Twenty-four distinguished themselves as true to the breed – after all, dachshund in German means “badger hound.��� Congratulations to all who tried and all who earned earthdog legs and titles at the 2012 DCA Earthdog Test!

2012 DCA Field Trials by Randy Eltringham For those who have ever had the honor and pleasure of planning, hosting and managing a “Super-Sized” AKC National Dachshund Field Trial, you know “it takes a village” countless hours to make it all come together. “At the end of the day” (as our politicians in Washington, DC say), when it all looks easy, that’s the true sign that the job was done extremely well. For the 2012 DCA Field Trial, held at Lookout Beagle Club in LaFayette, GA, on April 12-13, 2012, that turned out to be an understatement. In the true spirit of Penny J. Wimer, for whom the host Dachshund Club of Metropolitan Atlanta (DCMA) named their Memorial Sportsmanship Award (this year won by Marietta Singleton), not only did they have a great field trial planning committee, they had many hard-working, on-thespot volunteers who helped in countless ways from sun up to sun down – in-between running their own dogs – despite some very challenging conditions in the field. This year, a special thanks goes out to the field marshals and dozens of brush beaters who ensured the rabbits were spotted; tracked carefully through the brush; encouraged to lay trails down the open paths to include checks; protected; and rested. Some of us can still hear Marietta Singleton and M.A. Klein asking (as they looked down into the next clump of grass), “Is that you, Ray-mone? I’m here for ya’,

buddy.” And they meant it. With their help and the help of many others, it was easy to judge the tracks because so many people saw them and knew where the rabbit was hiding at the end of the run: at a rabbit protector’s feet. Now THAT’S what I call care, compassion and good sportsmanship!! Under the strong leadership of Robert and Janet Schwalbe, the 2012 DCA trial was a huge success! From the time we arrived with our RVs, expens, packed-to-the-brim vans, and popup tents for the DCMA Veterans Field Trial (which they invented several years ago much to the delight of many of us), to the moment we left on Sunday afternoon for that grueling Interstate ride south to the DCA Conformation Shows, we were provided ample servings of southern hospitality, Georgia-style: “Hi, Y’all. Which dawgs did ya’ bring? Wundaful, honey!! We want all tha entries we can git!” As a South Carolinian and Virginian, I felt right at home with that beautiful southern drawl. And speaking of southern hospitality, a call out goes out to the culinary experts who prepared and served our delicious meals – morning, noon and night – including Chefs Randy David and Will Guillot, and Sous Chefs Sandi Myers, Marci Forrester, Sheila DaLashmutt, Melanie Simmons, Corby and Glenn Barkhaus (who also served the DCA Earthdog Test meals), Janet Schwalbe, Jean Tillis, Laura Potash and JoAnne McCraw. And by nightfall, the food and beverages only got better, topped-off by the DCA Field Trial Awards dinner where we were served southern gumbo and desserts that we’re still talking about – followed by an auction of the handmade, hand painted centerpieces created by Laura Potash: dachshunds of all colors dressed in hunting jackets of all designs, chasing rabbits through the brush. These dachshund keepsakes have special places in many of our homes today in memory of the spectacular runs of this year’s dogs! And through the generosity and careful planning of Richard Davids, we had professional photos taken of all the winners for both the DCMA and DCA trials. Thanks Richard! Meals at dachshund field trials may not sound important, but they are. They sustained our judges, field trialers and volunteers for hours on end as they pushed through miles of brush in search of rabbits for first, second, third and fourth series competitions to determine final placements and winners in four huge stakes: Open All Age Dogs (OAAD – 31 starters), Open All Age Bitches (OAAB – 41 starters), Field Champion Dogs (FCD – 21 starters ) and Field Champion Bitches (FCB – 20 starters). All in all, there were 113 dogs competing for the final hoorah: Absolute Field Trial Winner who was Stardox Frankly My Dear (“Rhett”, co-owned by Susan Jill Blake and Lorraine Simmons) – who climbed skillfully to the top by winning the OAAD Stake and Best Open, and subsequently finishing his field championship where we all dream of winning the big bronze plaque: at DCA’s National Field Trial.

There were many other memorable moments (some of which were captured on video and streamed real-time onto Facebook pages and YouTube late into the evening) from this year’s competitions as well: like the Pajama Party, conceived and coordinated by Sandi Meyers and her band of merry Walmart Dachshund PJ aficionados; the Hip-Hoppers, Country-Western, Karaoke singers and Congo-Line Dancers who “danced with the stars” of our field trial (their dogs, of course) and a good bottle of wine (or beer); and the magic moments when dogs who were trying to qualify for a first leg on the DCA Triathlon earned field placements and Awards of Merit. These were the kind of moments that define strong performance community friendships as field trailers shared the joy of each other’s successes. More than anyone else, they understand what it takes to get there – years of training, practice, patience, access to field grounds, and the “luck of the bunny” you get for your brace. And finally, the best memory of all – watching the performances of this year’s 2012 DCA Field Trial winners, the dogs who earned field trial points and new field championships. Congratulations to all of you!! This is what we are all working to achieve. It’s what brings us back, year after year, and what propels us to make plans – even today – for next year’s trials.

DCA National Tracking Events April 8 & 10, 2012 by Denise Van Hook, DVM In planning for the DCA Tracking Tests, no one anticipated that we would lose a thousand acres of tracking land because the owner decided to do something else with the land, nor did we expect that a new vice-president at the University of Georgia would decide no dog events on campus (I am happy to say that decision has been changed and the Atlanta Obedience Club will again be using the UGAthens campus for VST Tests). Those on the Tracking committee, working with Herb Morrison and Dr. Mary Mahaffey, were able to find land for all three tests, but unfortunately it reduced the number of tracks


available. The tracklayers were local tracking people who gave up their Easter weekend to assist DCA in putting on a tracking test. Our judges for all of the tests were Herb Morrison, Athens, Georgia and Marge Schultz of Minnesota. The Variable Surface Tracking Test was held on Sunday, April 8, 2012, at Gainesville State University in Gainesville, Georgia. The weather, while warm, was beautiful weather. There were 3 tracks available and they filled with 4 alternates. The only Dachshund entered was FC Annie Ochre Von Dorndorf TDX (Ochre) owned and handled by Laura Knoll. Ochre, a Longhair, started the test very well but then had a problem with the first turn and did not pass the test. The other dogs were a Border Collie and a Basset Hound and they did not pass the test. The TDX test was held on Tuesday, April 10, 2012 on land owned Drs. Ed and Mary Mahaffey in Watkinsville, Georgia. The land was fields with tall grass, bare road, and forest. Again the weather was beautiful, but warm. Unfortunately we had only one track for TDX. That track was drawn by Ch. Apple Hills Liberty SS TD, owned and handled by Mary Ann Massie. This bitch is 101⁄2 years old and did an absolutely wonderful job until the final leg where she, unfortunately, took a cross track. Everyone watching was so disappointed as we just new we were looking at a new TDX dog. Mary Ann did an outstanding job of handling her girl, and we know the TDX will soon be in their future. The TD test was held on Tuesday, April 10, 2012 at Osborn Farm in Watkinsville, Georgia. Osborn Farm is a working farm with fields that at the time of the test were covered in tall grass. We had 3 tracks for the TD, but only one entry. That track was run by Hathor Farm-HellOn-Wheels SW TD, owned by Robert and Gail LaBerge and handled by Gail. Helosie started the track well and, even with the tall grass, moved rapidly down the track, never missing her turns. She and her owner were very happy when she found the glove at the end of the track. _________________________________________

DCA 2012 Rally and Obedience by Sharon McDonald THE SETTING The obedience and rally trials were held just a short drive down the road from the Mountain Creek Inn. Set at the edge of the picturesque golf course, just beyond the lake, is a permanent tent-like structure which we came to call “The Circus Tent”. It was an enormous and colorful bright red, green and yellow structure actually used sometimes as a circus arena. Our 50 ft. x 50 ft. ring looked dwarfed in the center of the structure. Large side flaps were open for air circulation as the facility was not exactly climate controlled. Thankfully, clouds covered the skies most days we were there, shielding us from sun and heat. The floor was smooth concrete. Our rings were fully matted and fully gated, and we had the fortune of warm-up mats placed off to one side of the facility. There was ample space for crating. Sandi Myers decorated a park bench with green and pink chiffon-type material, creating a wonderful background for photographs. Capping off the comfort, the host clubs provided an array of snacks and treats suitable for even the most nervous obedience exhibitor’s digestion! THE TRIALS With Carl Holder, Sharon Smith-Jordan, and Larry Sorenson serving as Ring Stewards, the events proceeded flawlessly for Judge Greg Feathers. Mr. Feathers judged both the Rally trial on Thursday and the Obedience trial on Friday. He proved to be a judge with a sharp eye yet a fair and even pencil. In the Rally Trial, there were 45 competitors representing 56 entries. 32 dachshunds earned qualifying scores, including 7 dachshunds earning RAE legs. For some, this trial marked the first ever DCA rally competition, while others marked their long awaited return to the obedience ring. Dachshund antics were abundant, but many teams prevailed to take home ribbons!

DCA 2012 Agility by Sharon McDonald The Background As with most of these events, the planning starts far in advance. While I served as the “day of” Trial Chairperson, Holly Deeds and Sharon Smith-Jordan did the majority of work in preparation. The obstacles encountered along the journey were especially challenging this year, the climax being when the original trial secretary suffered a tragic house fire, losing nearly everything. Fortunately, she saved her computer with our entry records. Our exhibitors were cooperative in the face of this tragic turn of events and quickly helped piece together any missing entries and payments. With extreme short notice, we were able to acquire the trial secretary services of Jim Macke and the event proceeded virtually seamlessly. The Setting The agility trial was held in the ballroom of the Mountain Creek Inn. The ring was long and narrow, with three walls serving as ring boundaries, and baby gates creating the front ring barrier and entry/exit chutes. Huge chandeliers provided lighting and the carpet


was covered wall-to-wall with shrink wrap plastic. OK, that last part was a surprise, however, most dogs adapted and in reality, the plastic provided better traction than did the carpet. The glistening floor and eggshell white walls provided a nice backdrop for the virtually brand new, top-of-the-line, equipment provided by “Troy”. Exhibitors arrived, set up crating, and quickly jumped in to work. Thanks to the phenomenal help of John Wilmore, courses were efficiently built. John, as well as Cheryl Holman, and several others, were fabulous and efficient course builders and general help to judge Carla Boudrot. Carla’s courses were designed with a wonderful balance of flow and technical skills, making them fun yet challenging. Judge Carla was pleasant and professional, however, there were no ‘freebies’. The Trial We ran small to tall with a respectable 96 runs through the trial. After each judges briefing and before each first-dog-on-the-line, we formed a huddle, extended a hand to the middle, and gave a “Go Dachshunds!” cheer. There were 26 qualifying runs and many awesome good tries with small bobbles. The exhibitors had a lot to be proud of in their performances. History was made when Karen Scheiner and her longhair girl Cherry ran a clean Excellent JWW course and thus earned their MACH2. In the history of DCA National Agility trials, no dachshund has ever MACH’d. John Wilmore and Diane Webb were especially honored to dust off the MACH rosette which they donated many years ago and proudly presented it to Karen and Cherry. The courses: Super thanks to Dawn-Renee Mack and Cindy Todd for putting together a fabulous catalog!!

~PUPPY VAGINITIS~ Thank you to Dr. Cheryl Lopate, DVM for giving DCA permission to reprint this article. Dr. Lopate is THE reproductive vet in the state of Oregon. Her qualifications are stellar and can be seen on her website: www.reproductiverevolutions.com (submitted by Claire Mancha)

Puppy vaginitis is a common condition that may cause vulvar discharge, irritation, licking, or frequent urination and it may predispose to bladder infections. Most puppies that develop vaginitis do so due to poor anatomy surrounding the vulvar opening; vaginal defects like strictures; from poor hygiene; or a dirty environment where she urinates. If she has an external anatomic defect (usually termed a juvenile vulva, which may involve a fold of fatty tissue overlying the vulvar opening or tightness of the adjoining tissue to the vulvar lips resulting in moistness of the tissues surrounding the vulva) this will usually resolve when the vulva swells with her first heat. If she has a vulvar stricture, these usually do not resolve with the first heat, but the immune system in the vagina becomes activated when it is exposed to estrogen for the first time. This exposure to estrogen occurs with the first heat cycle. Once the immune system is activated, most bitches can fight off future

infections that occur as a result of the stricture without further treatment. Puppy vaginitis is not caused by an infection. It is an accumulation of mucus from the glands in the vagina or vestibule (the part of the vagina closest to the vulvar opening) that accumulates in the vagina or becomes stuck to the vulvar lips as it is expelled. The sheer presence of the mucus discharge is irritating to the puppy resulting in the clinical signs mentioned above. This mucus may also track up the urethra carrying normal vaginal bacteria (flora) with it, resulting in bladder infections. Since puppy vaginitis is not caused by infection, the vast majority of the time, we do not treat puppy vaginitis with antibiotics. If there is excessive discharge, the puppy is licking excessively, or urinating frequently, we typically treat only with vaginal douches. In some puppies, multiple douches may be needed as more mucus is continuously produced and until either conformation changes or vaginal immunity increases, this mucus discharge will build up repeatedly. In puppies that develop ascending bladder infections, antibiotics are indicated in addition to douching. In older puppies, particularly those that were spayed at a young age, we may treat with oral estrogen supplements because they will never undergo a heat cycle and thus never gain vaginal Dachshund Club of America

immunity from exposure to their own estrogen secretion. If the reason for the vaginitis is environmental or bedding related, simply changing the area where the puppy urinates or changing the type of bedding she is urinating on, will usually be enough to resolve the condition. We strongly recommend that any bitch puppy that develops puppy vaginitis not be spayed prior to her first heat cycle. If the vaginal epithelium is not allowed exposure to estrogen, the bitch will be predisposed to vaginitis throughout her life. It is extremely important, that ALL female puppies have a digital exam of the vagina prior to spay regardless of whether they have had signs of vaginitis as a puppy. Bitches with strictures or poor vulvar anatomy that may not have had vaginitis as a puppy could develop it as adults, so we normally like to allow them a single exposure to estrogen prior to their spay. So any puppy with a stricture or poor vulvar anatomy will benefit from exposure to a heat cycle to prevent future health problems. The decision when to spay any puppy must be made on a case by case basis, following a good physical examination by a veterinarian and assessment of the home environment, in order to determine when the most appropriate time is for each individual puppy and family.!

has participated with her dogs in conformation, obedience, rally, tracking, retriever field work, agility, therapy work, and canine nose work. She strongly believes in giving back to the community that supports dog sports, and has worked tirelessly in many capacities, including as a multi-sport judge and a show, obedience and agility trial chairperson. Sharon Redmer of Whitmore Lake, Michigan began training her first dog, an All American shelter dog, in 1970.

Delegates’ Meeting June 2012 Held in Raleigh, NC contributed by Larry Sorenson Dachshund Club of America AKC Delegate This was new AKC Chairman of the Board Alan Kalter first Delegates’ Meeting. There was not a lot of business conducted at this meeting. The complete minuets are available at: http://images.akc.org/pdf/delegate_ minutes/June2012.pdf AKC Chief Financial Officer, James Stevens, gave his report. A summary follows: We’re pleased to report that 2012’s operating results to date are an improvement from the previous two years. Our total revenues for the first five months of this year were $710,000 higher than last year. Event fee revenues were greater than 2011. The number of events increased 6.6% so far this year, compared to last year. The number of entries was 7½ % greater than 2011. Our registration revenues have increased by over $400,000 as a result of higher dog registration fees. We’re also pleased that revenues from sponsorships and royalties increased by $372,000 and $207,000, respectively. Our total expenses were marginally higher by $76,000. We’re continuing to make a strategic investment in marketing. In addition, we’re legally obligated to make quarterly contributions to the pension plan. We weren’t required to do this last year. The painful cost reductions we absorbed in 2011 have essentially offset these incremental expenses this year. When you put all this together, our operations produced a surplus of over $900,000 for the first 5 months of this year. The market value of our investments increased by $2 million. This was a 3.7% return for the first five months. This year’s rate of return has outperformed the composite benchmark for our portfolio. This is good news. Let us hope this trend continues, however the increase was from the increase in registration fees not an increase in registrations. LLS There was a vote on the proposed amendment to Chapter 11, Section 6, of the Rules Applying to Dog Shows, Dog Show Entries, Conditions of Dogs Affecting Eligibility, which would allow superintendents and show secretaries using AKC entry verification to correct entries as appropriate. It was published in two issues of the online AKC Gazette. The proposed amendment was brought forward by AKC staff and approved by Dachshund Club of America

109

AUTUMN, 2012

the AKC Board. There were two-thirds in the affirmative and the amendment was adopted, effective immediately. This passed unanimously. It was an obvious winner, should have been done a long time ago. LLS The Executive Secretary read the following proposed amendments and they will be voted on at the September 2012 meeting. The Executive Secretary read the proposed amendment to Chapter 2, Section 3, of the Rules Applying to Dog Shows, which would require clubs that hold a show in their territory at least once each two consecutive calendar years shall have the sole show privilege in the city, town or district, which has been assigned to it as its show territory in order to maintain exclusive privilege in the territory. This amendment was brought forward by the Suffolk County Kennel Club. While the AKC agrees in principal with the removal of territorial exclusivity if a club did not have an event in that territory for two consecutive years, the AKC Board disagreed with enabling a club to come back years later and establish exclusivity with the ability to expel clubs that had in the interim established shows at sites at that territory. The club was contacted about modifying its amendment. The club declined and required that it go forward with a reading at this meeting. It will be published in two issues in the online AKC Gazette and you will be asked to vote on it at the September 2012 meeting. The AKC Board proposes that when it is considered for a vote in September that it be amended so that the last sentence in the proposal is removed. The removal of the sentence would not preclude a club from returning to its original territory, provided no other club has been holding shows in that territory during its absence. If another club has held a show in that territory, it would be considered open, with no one club being given exclusivity. Any club, which met AKC requirements would be considered for approval to hold a show there. If approved this rule would take effect immediately and would be implemented prospectively. Any club would therefore have over two full years to reestablish exclusive show privileges in its territory. The Chair recognized Robert Eisele, Delegate for the Suffolk County Kennel Club who spoke as follows: Originally, the Board proposed to Suffolk County Kennel Club that the last sentence totally be removed. Their train of thought is continued on next page...


News from AKC continued from page 109 probably more in line with what we are interested in. What I will be proposing at the next meeting is an amendment to the motion that reads to the effect that if there has been a club in that territory having a show for five consecutive years, and if the first club comes back and has a show and re-establishes exclusivity, that the two clubs are then considered concurrent in that territory. The Chair asked that when once finalized, that it be sent to the Executive Secretary. The reading above has the largest impact on All Breed KC. LLS The Executive Secretary read the proposed amendment to Chapter 5, Sections 6 through 8, of the Rules Applying to Dog Shows - Ribbons, Prizes and Trophies, which would create consistency with Chapter 6 of the Rules Applying to Dog Shows. It was brought forward by the Dog Show Rules Committee and is approved by the AKC Board. It will be published in two issues of the online AKC Gazette and you will be asked to vote on it at the September, 2012 meeting. This reading is housekeeping business to bring the ribbons in line with the new dog show classes and awards. LLS The Executive Secretary read the proposed amendment to Chapter 16, Section 1, a new sixth paragraph, to the Rules Applying to Dog Shows, which would create a new three point major for the dog designated Reserve Winners Dog and the bitch designated Reserves Winners Bitch at one National Specialty each year, specified by the AKC Parent Club, provided there are twice the number required for a five point major in the winner’s sex. This amendment was brought forward by the Progressive Dog Club. The AKC Board has not made a recommendation. It will be published in two issues of the online AKC Gazette, and you will be asked to vote on it in September, 2012 meeting. The Chair recognized Peter Piusz, Delegate the American Rottweiler Club who spoke as follows: Speaking for the Parent Clubs Committee, I would like to point out that all Parent Clubs have the option of opting out of this. Also the materials placed on the seats this morning were prepared by the Committee. Additional material will be distributed as we get closer to September. This is the big issue for the September meeting. It almost passed the last time it was voted on. Approximately 67% of parent clubs will qualify for the reserve 3 point major. I believe it will pass. LLS Mr. Ashby spoke as follows: Good Morning. Fellow Delegates, today I speak to you as Chairman of the AKC Political Action

Committee (PAC) which also has oversight responsibility for the Canine Legislative Support Fund (CLSF). In March Jim Stevens shared that our Club Members contributed a “nickel” each to the AKC PAC in 2011 - a very small amount when one considers the challenges we face. Since its formation 6 years ago the AKC PAC has made a real difference using its meager resources, but for sustainable, across the country impact, we must have more resources. Today we are introducing the “Club Presidents Challenge” which we hope will increase considerably the impact of the both the PAC and the CLSF in our efforts to fight over reaching legislation and the threats to dog breeding and ownership in the United States. The rights of responsible dog owners are under attack. State legislatures across the country continue to introduce bills (facilitated by HSUS and other animal rights extremists) that seek to infringe on our ability to own and breed dogs–including mandatory spay/neuter, ownership limits, warrantless search and seizure, breeding restrictions, and breed bans. The increase in anti-dog and anti-breeder legislation threatens our purebred dogs and our way of life. It affects all of us–whether we’re owners, breeders, or involved in dog sports. In 2007, AKC tracked just over 400 bills. In 2009 there were 800 bills. In 2012 there were 1350 bills, through end of May. Opposition is well-funded. We aren’t. In fact, in 2011, the AKC PAC received only $6,662 in contributions from members of AKC-affiliated clubs. That’s an average of only five cents per club member, with the balance coming from AKC staff personally and the AKC Board of Directors. The AKC Government Relations Department is working hard to fight back, but needs everyone to participate in the battle. Our goal is to facilitate Clubs in their fight and give them access to the training and resources needed to be successful. That’s the idea behind the Club Presidents Challenge. To provide the resources, tools, and environment that we must have to be successful, I challenge your club’s president to take a leadership role in defending responsible dog breeders and owners. There are two parts to the challenge: First, I challenge AKC member club presidents to secure at least $300 from your club’s members for the AKC Political Action Committee (AKC PAC). Simply collect contributions from your club members, complete a donor information form, and submit one check to the AKC PAC. In addition, you might also consider designating all or a portion of your Club’s annual dues to the PAC. This would comply with the law while providing an easy way for members to support the PAC. Licensed clubs are also being asked to participate in this effort at differing funding levels. The AKC PAC is an integral part of our government relations strategy. Our challenges are great, but our potential is unlimited. AKC Dachshund Club of America

PAC gives club members a special opportunity to financially support candidates who will protect their rights. It combines 100% of their contributions with those of others to offer strong financial support of dogfriendly candidates in critical races. Federal Elections Committee rules prohibit the AKC – or AKC clubs – from making direct contributions to candidates. As experts on canine legislation, we have the resources to learn which candidates support our interests, and which don’t. AKC pays all the costs of administering this program. This includes all overhead – office space, staff time, legal fees, reporting, and so on. This means that, no matter what you choose to give, 100 percent of your contributions to the AKC PAC are used to directly support the candidacy of leaders who share our commitment to reasonable laws that protect your rights and promote responsible dog ownership and breeding. The more legislators there are who support our values, the more assured you can be that your rights will be protected. It’s that simple! Although you cannot earmark funds for specific candidates, as a contributor, you can recommend legislators to the AKC Government Relations Department whom you believe deserve AKC PAC support. And where else can you make a contribution where you know 100% is going to the actual cause? Federal elections law heavily regulates who can and cannot give money to political campaigns. Just as federal elections law prohibits AKC from making direct campaign contributions to political candidates, it also limits who can give to the AKC PAC. Eligible contributors include the individual members of AKC clubs and AKC employees. The AKC PAC, however, is not the only focus of the Club Presidents Challenge. There is a second part to the challenge. Clubs may donate to the Canine Legislative Support Fund. All money contributed to Canine Legislation Support Fund helps to defray AKC’s costs in supporting legislation, securing formal representation in Congress and statehouses, and educating legislators and the public about responsible and fair policies for dog breeding and ownership. For example, it played a significant role in helping AKC lead the effort in defeating California’s statewide mandatory spay/neuter bill in 2007-2008. It also under wrote the cost of the State Federation meeting in Raleigh during the spring where many states and Clubs were represented. It can provide training access at the state and local level to make sure you have the best chance of being successful in working with legislators, etc. With significant threats on the horizon, there is no question that the CLSF will play a leading role in our future. This was an outstanding presentation. The threat is real and we are way behind and underfunded. LLS _______________________________________


CHAIRMAN’S REPORT A Shared Agenda for Success President John F. Kennedy’s address to a special joint session of Congress on May 25, 1961, was both an historic and a defining moment for the United States. It was during that speech that he announced a plan to put a man on the moon before the decade was over. A little over a year later, President Kennedy explained further why he believed that was a goal worth pursuing: “We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.”

challenges we face in our lives with our dogs. Sometimes it is to stand up for our rights; sometimes it is to do the right thing. Today we are faced with potential USDA regulations that will seriously impede, if not eliminate, a large number of Fancy breeders as well as endanger a number of low-number breeds we are trying so hard to preserve. Our efforts to effectively comment on the APHIS proposed regulations by July 16 have taken on a life of their own, with thousands of concerned members of the Fancy submitting their comments. In addition, the AKC petition in support of the numerous comments made by the AKC Government Relations team has recorded more than 50,000 signatures. The emergence of a shared agenda to accomplish the right thing was never more evident than our response to the needs of the

SILENT AUCTION BENEFITS DCA HEMANGIOSARCOMA FUND by Diane Young McCormack I really do not think that Barbara Powers knew the word Hemangiosarcoma. In her days, as a breeder of all 3 coats, she was certainly aware of cardiomyopathy because that is what took her beloved Shoney in 1998. Her other beloved dog, the mini wire that belonged to Eva, died of old age and so did her smooth Moxie. But, if she had known about this devastating disease, I’m sure that she would not have sat still – doing nothing. She would not have let other breeders stand up and fight the cause. So it was in her memory that I decided to donate

back to DCA some of her prized Dachshund memorabilia to be used for the Hemangiosarcoma Fund that your Board of Directors saw fit to establish at the National held in Oconomowoc in 2011. I tried to put this on last year in WI. I even had Jerry and Pat Price stop at my home in Reno on their way to field trials held in conjunction with the National, load up the 4 file boxes of Barbara’s “stuff” and deliver it to the hotel. But, the space was too cramped and it would not have done justice to Barbara’s collection. When we realized that it was a no-go, Anne and Jim Carson graciously loaded up the 4 boxes into their vehicle and drove them back to GA. And, what a wonderful set-up we had, as you can tell from these photos that Chris Taylor took. We had 3 tables that made up in a “U” with a board behind – approximately 6’ x 12’ – on which were displayed photos of our “DACHSHUND ANGELS IN THE SKY.” Dachshund breeders and exhibitors alike, the minute they heard about my quest, contacted me out of the thin air with one after another tale of how one of their beloved dachshunds succumbed to Hemangiosarcoma. They all wanted to be included in this memorial to their

dachshunds with not only their names listed but with actual color photographs of their “angels.” One could not walk by this exhibit without stopping to look – to ask – to question – how could these magnificent dachshunds be taken, many at their prime in life, by this dreaded disease. And, not all the people who stopped by our display to share with us their stories of their dogs dying of Hemangio were dachshund people. One had an Italian Greyhound, another had a beagle mix and some had rescue dogs with unknown breeding. Chris Taylor, Bev Morgan and I had arrived loaded with stacks and stacks of articles which we printed up for distribution. I made a two-sided, 3 columns, handout and within two days, 100 of these were gone. At the general meeting, Carl called upon me to give a brief talk on the auction. Because I hadn’t realized I would be expected to do this I had no notes. I spoke for a longer time than I think he had allocated me, and did not need notes once I started – I spoke from my heart. This is some of what I said.

I did not know what Hemangiosarcoma was until my sister’s bitch, Penny, died suddenly while they were at a dog show in Ohio. Then I heard of another dog’s succumbing to this disease – then another. Some were related to Spirit – some not. At that time, the only dachshunds with the disease that I knew about were of the longhaired variety. The more I read up on the disease, the more frustrating it was for me as a breeder because I was sitting on more than 20 vials of stored sperm from my beloved Spirit. I called Dr. Jaime F. Modiano and we must have talked for almost half an hour. I told him how distraught I was that some of these dogs were from my line. I asked him, “What should I do with Spirit’s sperm?” Without the slightest hesitation, he answered, “Use it!” He then proceeded to tell me that if we, the breeders of some of the top dogs who Dachshund Club of America

112

AUTUMN, 2012

have won the highest awards, stopped using these dogs for breeding, our gene pool would drop to approximately 20%. So, yes, we have to continue breeding to these magnificent dachshunds and hope and pray that their get will be spared. One thing we cannot do is point a finger and say, “Ah, ha – so that dog has Hemangio in his pedigree.” We do not know, according to the leading laboratories who are currently conducting the studies, if it’s caused by genetics, environment or both. And we also know as breeders that breeding can be a crap

shoot. We study pedigrees, we read up on the history of great dogs from the past, we fly around the country here and yonder looking at get produced by top sires, we do progesterone testing, we feed the proper diets to our bitches – you know the rest – and we wait with baited breath to see the results in our puppies when they are born, 7 weeks of age, 3 months, etc. (Incidentally, Barbara Powers never evaluated a dachshund until she could see them move on the out and back and around – no matter what the pedigree was on paper.) And, after the studying, the testing, the timing, the holding our breath – our spectacular litter of 6 is born and all become Champions and some even Dual Champions and then – WHAM – 2 of these spectacular dogs die of Hemangiosarcoma. No one prepares us for this. So, what can we do as breeders? I wish it were that simple. It’s not. We do not have the answers – YET. But you can help. You whose beloved dachshunds might be diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma need to take the first steps to eradicate this disease. Download the forms from the DCA website and give copies to your vet for each of your dachshunds. Be prepared! It’s devastating enough to face the death of one of our family members to Hemangio, but tell yourself, perhaps, just perhaps…this vial of blood, this section of tumor…sent to the Breen lab…might be THE ONE to finally find the answer. Hallelujah! Hemangiosarcoma is now found in every coat – in every size. Some breeders have had only one of their dachshunds affected by this. Some


are counting the numbers on one hand. In the last issue of the DCA Newsletter, our Editor, Lynne Dahlen, devoted 5 pages to Hemangiosarcoma. Did you read the material that was discussed? Were you aghast at the color photos showing the Hemangio tumors? Please, if you haven’t read these pages, go back and read them. Become educated in what the symptoms are – it’s fast – here today – gone tomorrow. I know that Barbara would join me in giving thanks to any of you who came by the Silent Auction and donated to this cause. The entire amount we raised, $4,085.00, was donated to the Hemangiosarcoma Fund. The DCA Health & Welfare Trust Fund will reimburse you cost of shipping the samples to the Breen Laboratory.

Many owners of the “Dachshund Angels in the Sky” listed above had sent photos of their dogs to me and were included on the display. Some came by the booth and gave me a photo of their dog to mount on the display and added their dog’s name to the list I was keeping. It should be noted that not all of these dogs listed above succumbed to Hemangiosarcoma. The symptoms in related cancers in many cases are similar. It’s difficult to diagnose Hemangio when a biopsy is not performed.

Letters to and from the editor To the members of DCA, I want to express my gratitude and thanks to the members of DCA for selecting me to judge DCA 2012. I was deeply honored to have been chosen and will long remember the fun I had and the great dogs I had the privilege of judging.

CORNER

Warm regards always, Marci Forrester _________________________________________________________ Hi Members and Subscribers! Another Nationals has come and gone - it was a great time, and I encourage everyone to try and attend when they can. Thank you members for advertising your wins, and thank you all contributors for taking the time to write the articles on the Nationals. In 2013 the Nationals will be held in the middle of the country - at Purina Farms in Missouri, hopefully that will allow more people and their dogs to travel there. This issue is a little bit late, I must apologize. It’s been a very hectic summer here in the northwoods of Wisconsin. Thankfully, our kennel/grooming business has been busy, we’ve had some serious health issues with a few of our older dogs which put me a bit behind...and, we have whelped our first dachsie litter in 5 years. I forgot how much work having a large litter was! Again, I urge all of you to be aware of changes in pet ownership laws in your area...seems that more and more municipalities are enacting laws that will impact animal owners negatively. Please see the AKC Chairman’s article on page 111. Don’t forget that DCA is running a special on black/white ads for the winter issue only - $75 for a full page with one pic!

Lynne CORRECTIONS: SUMMER ISSUE 2012 In reviewing the “DCA Standard July 9, 1935” that was published in the Summer 2012 issue, I noted an error/ omission in this Breed Standard. Specifically, on page 28 of the Newsletter in Section II, (A) (b), Twocolored dachshunds, the sentence after “The most common two-colored dachshund is usually black and tan” should read “Except on white dogs, no white is desirable, but a solitary small spot is not exactly disqualifying.” What was published is “Except on dogs, no white is desirable, but a solitary small spot is not exactly disqualifying.” This omission changes the meaning and intent of the initial breed standard and needs to be corrected in a future issue. Robert Schwalbe

Advertise your dog businesses, services or kennels for only $50/year. A 31⁄2˝x2˝ ad (your business card) will be published four times a year for this great rate! At the Beach Party at Nat ionals!

The Barn Hunt! continued from page 40 equation had no idea how to search with their dogs. They started saying “find it, find it” in frenzied tones right away. This calls for some hands on training before the actual event. This might have been because they were mostly conformation teams and had never tried anything remotely like this with their dogs. We outdoors enthusiasts know that to bring to perfection the dog/handler ratting duo, the watchwords are patience and observation. I don’t know how many times I said “Let your dog hunt!” to these excited competitors. The results were immediate and very gratifying both to me and to the handlers. The dogs pretty much know what is what. For you competitive types, there is a structured ladder leading up to a championship. As in earthdog there is an instinct test, then Novice, Open, Senior and Master, with further legs for champion and master champion status. All the tests involve a time in which to complete tasks involving discriminating between tubes filled with bedding, nothing and a rat, while also

climbing up bales (step stool provided for small dogs) and going through a short (2 foot) tunnel made of bales of straw. The courses become more complex and have increasing numbers of ascents and tunnels and periods of time in which to finish the course. The rules are straightforward and comprehensive. Ms. Nuttal has spent a lot of time and effort laying the groundwork for this very entertaining game. For those of you who are potty mouths as I am, be aware that cursing will instantly DQ you! Self control training is included at no extra charge. The judging was quite luxurious! We were provided with a check-in person, a gate attendant, and a rat minder; all there to attend to the smooth running of the show. All the judge needs to do is keep time and watch for task accomplishment. It is truly simple and easy (and hilarious!) For clubs thinking of putting on a Barn Hunt, your volunteers are your backbone as usual. Pizza went a long way at this event. All four of us had a blast and the hosting club members were so appreciative! The

Defending the Freedom to Own Pets From http://www.pet-law.com/ by Walt Hutchens, Timbreblue Whippets America today is rushing toward dramatic changes in the way we breed and keep animals. These changes are already beginning and the laws that will make them continue go far beyond the changes we can see. All species and all animal uses, from deer in our woods and fields, to rats in our scientific labs, to animals farmed for meat and milk, to the pet dog or cat in our living rooms are being affected. These effects will increase in the future. The picture is vast and complicated; we will focus on the effects on pet dogs. We will emphasize what is happening and how it is being done. “Why” is more difficult to understand. but the basic reason is that a very few Americans – no more than a thousand – want these changes. They break them down into small chunks that sound good and sell them one chunk at a time to good-hearted, often busy, people. But the chunks are put together to make something that none of us would ever have approved. The ‘animal rights’ movement is essentially a fruitcake religion. It Dachshund Club of America

competitors were instantly hooked (as were we). Unfortunately, in all the excitement, we didn’t take one picture! Thankfully our Laura has a real barn with real bales of straw and real field mice and a miniature dachshund named Hells Bells (Bella,) a tiny but effective killing machine who has trained her big housemate Budgie to move the bales for her. This is an actual real barn rat/mouse hunting team! Our doxies are definitely up for the game and these pictures reaffirm the eternal truth that doxie girls are bossy. The AKC and the UKC are both courting Ms. Nuttal for control of the Barn Hunt. Ms. Nuttal is holding out so she can develop the activity nationwide with interested clubs. Any club/ organization can put on a Barn Hunt as long as they follow the rules and send feedback; again, a very democratic way to perfect a game/sport. The more of these we put on, the better product will ensue. How often can we be a part of the design team of a national sport? I hope you will give the Barn Hunt a try, both as participants and as event sponsors. Let’s play outside! !

will not be stopped short of an expensive and nearly irreversible disaster unless most Americans come to understand that the bricks they buy today with contributions to Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PeTA), and many smaller organizations will be used to build a prison, and stop sending those checks. In the short term, all of us (but lawmakers especially) must become extremely skeptical of new laws that claim to 'protect animals.’ America has had basic animal protection laws for more than fifty years; some go back over a century. These laws need better enforcement in some parts of the country but there are very few new laws that will make animal or human lives better, rather than simply making ownership and breeding more difficult and less likely to succeed. It’s frightening how much ground we’ve lost just in the last few years. We can still win – that is, keep our rights to own and responsibly use pets and other animals – but we must not delay or falter. America today is rushing toward dramatic changes in the way we breed and keep animals. These changes are already beginning and the laws that will make them continue go far beyond the changes we can see. !

Ch. Rosadachs Erik The Red X Ch. Intoto Kenosha Gold Hanna Jane finished her GCH in fine style at Woofstock under Ms. Gay Dunlap. Elegant and typey with beautiful movement, she managed her GCH in just 11 shows. She displays the same happy enthusiasm in the ring as she does racing around the yard at home. She is a joy to live with, a real character who yodels as she practices laps in the yard. I am proud to say that I handled Hanna Jane to this title by myself (with a lot of help from her as I am a real amateur).
