Peridontal Disease in Dogs submitted by Charlotte Borghardt

Dr. Jan Bellows of All Pets Dental Clinic in Weston, Florida discusses periodontal disease and dental health in dogs. Most all dogs that we see have some degree of periodontal disease. Unfortunately, dogs don’t brush their own teeth and most owners can’t figure out the whole process of brushing the pet’s teeth twice a day. So, plaque builds up on the teeth and inflames the gums. If it is left to stay there, tartar, or very rough plaque, moves in. As more plaque gets on top of the tartar, the gums become more inflamed, and then the disease travels deeper.

One of the more positive changes has been the non-regular Field Champion class that has been offered at both DCNJ and DFABC trials. This class came about when I noticed how many new people were coming to the trials, running their dogs in the Open Classes and getting that Field Champion title. These newly titled dogs and handlers would return to compete in the field champion classes, only to be discouraged by the lack of call backs and the huge entry. Then there were the older dogs, which in their youth had spectacular runs, but now had slowed down.

Another successful Nationals!! The 2015 Dachshund Club of America National Specialty was held in Chattanooga, Tennessee at the Chattanooga Choo Choo hotel. Friends came together, not only for rigorous performance competition, but also to gather and share training tips in obedience and rally events. Dangerous thunderstorms with high winds had swept through Copia’s Kennels in Sewanee TN the night before the earthdog events. The muck did not seem to slow down any of the dogs! Flint River Beagle Club at Hampton GA, was the location of the DCA National Field Trial on April 1 with an entry of 136.

So this year it was finally Bubbles’ turn to win. Her son, Duskey, gave her another run for her money though. He finished a very respectable second place and he and Bubbles were the only two dogs to qualify in three or more events this year. Several dogs came really, really close and there were some real heart breakers as wonderful dogs made some very minor error that knocked them out of the running. I am certain we will see more great performances from them in the future!!

Periodontal Disease and Dental Health in Dogs The following interview was originally released as a podcast on November 11, 2014. In this podcast interview, Dr. Jan Bellows of All Pets Dental Clinic in Weston, Florida discusses periodontal disease and dental health in dogs. Dr. Bellows is a Diplomate of the American Board of Veterinary Practitioners, a Diplomate of the American Veterinary Dental College, and is the current President of the American Veterinary Dental College. Dr. Bellows received his DVM from Auburn University and completed a small animal internship at The Animal Medical Center in New York City.

Dr. Jan Bellows (Bellows): Periodontal disease is a disease that affects the support of the tooth, called the periodontium. The periodontium includes the periodontal ligament, the gingiva or the gums around the tooth, and the bone around the tooth. CHF: When we look broadly at canine health, periodontal disease is now recognized as the number one health concern in dogs. Can you estimate what percentage of dogs may be affected by dental health problems? Bellows: Most all dogs that we see have some degree of periodontal disease. Unfortunately,

AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF): First, can you give us a working definition of periodontal disease?

dogs don’t brush their own teeth and most owners can’t figure out the whole process of brushing the pet’s teeth twice a day. So, plaque builds up on the teeth and inflames the gums. If it is left to stay there, tartar, or very rough plaque, moves in. As more plaque gets on top of the tartar, the gums become more inflamed, and then the disease travels deeper. CHF: What are some of the signs or symptoms that a dog is having dental health problems? Bellows: The first sign is a bad or abnormal breath. So when you go to kiss your dogs or hug them, or talk to them very close, you’ll smell a breath that just doesn’t smell right. That’s called halitosis or malodor. That’s generally the first sign that you’ll see. Later signs, when it gets worse, may be a dog will start to paw at the mouth, or they’ll start to eat food and the food will fall out of their mouths because it’s so painful. As it progresses, food will have some blood on it or toys will start having some blood on them. All of this is progression of the disease. CHF: Are some breeds more susceptible to dental health problems than others?

Dachshund Club of America

Summer 2015


Bellows: Absolutely. The smaller the breed, the greater chance the animal is having periodontal disease. Because the teeth are closer together, the plaque and tartar builds up in the interface in between those two teeth. Additionally, the smaller breeds tend to live longer, which gives the periodontal disease more time to progress. And lastly, the smaller breeds tend to eat more soft food, which also promotes periodontal disease. CHF: Can you tell us what plaque and tartar are, and how they form on the surface of the tooth? Bellows: Originally, plaque forms every day on the tooth. This goes for people, too. Right after you go to the human dentist and the teeth are cleaned, you take your tongue and you rub it over your teeth and it’s nice and smooth. If you don’t brush your teeth that night, then you’ll have a gummy film over your teeth. It’s called the biofilm, and that is plaque. If plaque is left undisturbed, meaning it’s not brushed off, then calcium and phosphorus will form on top of the plaque. This turns the plaque into tartar, and tartar is the same thing as calculus, which is a rough substrate on top of the teeth. Unfortunately, because it’s rough rather than the nice smooth enamel, more plaque forms on top. Plaque is the big problem. If plaque gets underneath the gum line, and causes a lot of inflammation and bleeding.

time for a professional oral cleaning visit under general anesthesia. CHF: When do veterinarians make the decision to remove teeth? Bellows: Periodontal disease has four different grades. The first grade, called PD 1, is early gingivitis. That’s when there’s just inflammation at the gum line and there is no support loss. In that situation, the teeth can be cleaned and polished, and the gingivitis resolves as long as the owner continues on daily plaque control. PD 2, or early periodontal disease, occurs when there is less than 25% of the tooth support lost. In that scenario, medication can be placed underneath the gum line to help decrease the progression of periodontal disease. Moderate periodontal disease, called PD 3, is when less than half the amount of support is lost. In those situations, if the client can provide homecare, then oftentimes, the teeth can be saved with surgery.

unfortunately creates a dog that has a nonfunctional bite. In this, the upper incisor teeth are actually going into the lower gum line, causing trauma and pain for the animal. It is also very important to selectively breed dogs that do not have dental disease. That can be done by looking at the numbers of teeth, seeing how and if they’re crowded, and to see if there’s too many or too few teeth. A lot of our dental problems are inherited, and it’s a very important that the mother and father of the pups are checked dentally before breeding. CHF: What can dog owners do at home to minimize periodontal disease? Bellows: The most important thing to minimize periodontal disease is daily plaque control. Periodontal disease can be controlled at home through dental tooth-brushing, which tends to be difficult, or with dental wipes that you can get from your veterinarian. Check to make sure the wipes contain chlorhexidine or sodium hexametaphosphate; the wipes should be used twice a day. Try tooth-brushing with a special

CHF: When and how does a veterinarian check for dental health problems? Bellows: On every examination, the veterinarian will examine the mouth. They’ll smell to make sure there is not a disagreeable odor and they’ll flip the lips. They will take a look at the canine teeth and the back teeth to make sure there isn’t tartar and plaque. Also the veterinarian may use a special periodontal test strip in the mouth that will help to evaluate if there is periodontal disease underneath the gum line you can’t see. This is incorporated on many of the exams now. The veterinarian will also examine the mouth for fractured teeth. Unfortunately, a lot of folks give their dogs bones and antlers and other things that they really shouldn’t give them and dogs are fracturing teeth and sometimes even the nerves are exposed.

Once you get to advanced periodontal disease, or PD 4, greater than half the amount of tooth support is lost. Other than by heroic surgery, the tooth will be lost and will have to be extracted.

CHF: How often should plaque and tartar be removed from the surface of the dog’s teeth by their veterinarian?

CHF: Is there more to dental health than removal of plaque and tartar, and extractions of the severely affected teeth?

Bellows: Plaque and tartar should be removed by the owner at least twice a day, done with tooth-brushing or dental wipes or giving one of the approved dental chews on the Veterinary Oral Health Council approval list (www.VOHC.org). VOHC is an organization that tells you what products you can use to decrease the accumulation of plaque and tartar. A professional visit should be arranged at least twice a year with a veterinarian to see if it’s

Bellows: Absolutely. Dental health needs to be focused on prevention; prevention of plaque through daily homecare and prevention of breaking teeth. Do not give your dog anything that is harder than the tooth itself or anything that doesn’t bend. Prevention of dental disease can also be accomplished through proper breeding. Breeding one breed like a pug to another breed like a poodle can make a so-called “puggle”and Dachshund Club of America

type of toothpaste that is poultry-flavored and tastes good for the animal. CHF: Dog owners have a plethora of over-thecounter choices of products that are promoted for maintaining dental health. Can you tell us what they need to understand to make good choices for their dogs? Starting with teethbrushing, what should they look for in a good product? Bellows: There are hundreds, if not thousands, of dental products in the pet stores that make claims that, unfortunately, are not substantiated. Often, claims for whiter teeth, cleaner breath, controls gingivitis, do not have the research behind them. The Veterinary Oral Health Council is made up of veterinary continued on page 32...


It is with heartfelt sadness that we had to say goodbye to Marie after a 2-year long battle with hemangiosarcoma. She was a trooper through 2 major surgeries (tumor on her shoulder in March of 2013), (splenectomy February 2014). We are grateful to have had her longer than what the articles say life expectancy is (typically months) and yet on the other hand I am heartbroken for she was much too young to die like this. I read all the articles and never thought the hemangiosarcoma would come back in her spine of all places. That day in January was the worst day of our lives and we will never forget Marie no matter how time passes. She was just the kind of dog who you can’t get out of your mind.

Mike and Marie in the Florida Keys, a trip we didn’t think she would be able to make. The agility picture was taken one month before she had her spleen removed. She looks healthy as a horse.

Both Mike and I would like to urge you all to familiarize yourself with hemangiosarcoma and take part in related studies and research, with the goal of ridding this pestilence from our genome. Phyllis Meseroll and Michael Nothstein • jrzteckel@comcast.net Dachshund Club of America

1959 - Mona CD, David, Gail, George

1958Perfy, WD, DCA

During more than a half century span of training, breeding and exhibiting her dachshunds Robin Gianopoulos also held a full time job and raised three children who in turn were there for her as adults and were at her side at the very end. Robin’s daughter Gail writes that her mom bought Mona from Grace Hill for son, George, when he had his tonsils out in 1954 and that’s how it all began. Robin owned and trained several dachshunds to obedience titles with some high scores in the late 50’s and early 60’s. She belonged to Suffolk Obedience Training Club, participating in the S.O.T.C. Drill Team: men and women wearing identical pink corduroy vests as part of their costumes. Their well trained, sociable dogs strutted their skills to music, indoors and out, at events all over Long Island, New York. The largest canine team member was a massive German Shepherd Dog, and at the other end of the spectrum, Robin with miniature smooth dachshund, Pokey CDX, who was usually the hit of the show. During those years Robin also taught obedience classes at the Riverhead Armory. Robin continued breeding and exhibiting her mini line simultaneously with her standard longs. Till she became quite ill recently, she successfully campaigned them in conformation. Frequently they were invited to appear on TV and to pose for ads. If you saw mini smooths on the late shows they often were Robin’s. Jane Fowler remembers Robin fondly. “Many of today’s breeders won’t know the name of Robin Gianopoulos. They may recognize the name of ‘Stonybrook’ and associate it with standard longhairs, but those of us “of a certain age” who came along in our breed during the same era here on the East Coast, especially know what a treasure we have lost. To me Robin will always be the quintessential ‘breeder/owner/handler.’ Robin had her first longhairs from Grace Hill. The De Sangpur dogs were the best of their time, and Robin became a devoted student of her mentor, Grace. She had a ‘natural eye’ and soon became a successful and winning breeder/exhibitor, always giving of her knowledge and experience to anyone who asked, always finding the extra minute to congratulate a fellow exhibitor on a win, or admire a dog she liked from their breeding. Robin had a natural warmth about her. When you met her, even for the first time, you felt you had known her forever after talking with her for a few minutes. She had a mischievous sparkle in her eyes that guaranteed fun, adventure, intelligence, and a genuine caring for people. There was a group of us young women working to make our mark about the same time back in the day who would see each other at shows, exchange information about our latest breedings, critique each other’s dogs, eat pot-luck and talk far into the night. We learned a lot from one another. Even with the limited time and finances Robin produced dogs that competed successfully on a national level. She was a breeder who was respected by her peers, whose opinions were sought, whose honesty was admired. She never lost sight of the important features of our breed. Her

dogs were of the classic type, temperament being paramount. She produced an elegant, well balanced, clean moving dog, not exaggerated in any way and true to the standard. What she leaves behind is a good template we can all learn from. She was to me a one-in-a-million friend, and I will miss her more than words can say.” “Robin has been a friend of mine for over forty years,”writes Glenna Dimon. “She was very knowledgeable about dogs in general and dachshunds in particular. Her breeding program has produced many fine dogs. She loved every dog from her breeding and was careful about the homes they went to. We had much fun traveling together, especially on our trip to Crufts. She will be missed for her charm, wit, and helpfulness to others.” (Ch. Glen Valley’s Perfidious, Glenna’s longhair BOV DCA 1954 was sired by Ch. William De Sangpur. Perfidious sired Ch. De Sangpur Perfy, WD DCA 1958, bred by Grace Hill, and owned and shown by Robin for many years.) Edith Colaneri remembers that she met Robin in the late sixties when Edith moved to Stony Brook. “I had bought a bitch from Gracie Hill, De Sangpur Kennels. Robin invited me to go to matches with her, then point shows. I bred to her dogs. She helped me along, showing my dogs at times, and advised me which dog to enter and where to enter it. We would get together informally with other Long Island breeders to hold handling classes, then break for refreshments at my house, with more dog talk and advice from Robin. When we had pups we often met at one another’s homes observing and handling the pups, grading litters. During those years I was at her home almost constantly. Robin went to great lengths to always improve her bloodlines, both standard longhairs, and miniature smooths. She knew not only conformation, but how to groom for the ring, and she shared her knowledge with others. Thank you Robin.” The Axels write that they purchased a pretty black-and-tan pup from Robin in 1968, from Perfy’s final litter, then were gifted with her handsome red littermate. “Though we appreciated their good looks, it was their gentle souls and ‘smarts’ that made us love them dearly. Telling fanciers we planned to compete with our dogs in both obedience and conformation we were met with raucous laughter, and dire warnings of ruination by competing with conformation dogs in the obedience ring. Robin told us not to listen. It was her encouragement that made us continue. Soon our conformation dachshunds did the impossible and started earning top scores and titles before and after their names in stiff competition. We bred succeeding generations guided by Robin’s counseling and knowledge of dachshund genotype and phenotype. Many years and dachshunds later, after moving from Long Island to North Carolina, we kept in touch to talk about our beloved dogs, getting together at specialty shows to celebrate life and friendship. Though she rubbed shoulders with the greats, Robin’s goal was to

introduce and encourage beginners to share her dreams. That quality will be her greatest legacy.” Jeanne Rice writes that she and her mom, Hilda, and dad, Tom, met Robin and her children in 1967 when Robin judged dachshunds at an all breed match show for Riverhead KC. “True to form Robin was welcoming and supportive of us as she was to all newcomers, and seeing our pup’s quality, gave my dad Tom’s 9 month old mini the BOV. Tori then garnered Best Puppy and then Best in Match over a 2 year old pointed Afghan. Robin’s decision was borne out by our mini becoming Amer/Can Ch. Tori Russet Princess, Canada’s #2 mini smooth, 1968, U.S. top 30 mini smooths 1969, and the foundation of our breeding program. Most touching is that three years ago Robin gave me the photo she had kept all these years of that win. Robin cared about people and dachshunds throughout her life and she instilled those qualities in her children. She will be missed.” From Barbara and Ted Durvin: “Robin was our friend, mentor, breeder, and dachshund coach for the past twenty five years. While we had previously owned dachshunds, Robin introduced us to longhairs and later to dog shows. During the following years, we owned Stonybrook standard longhairs who proved to be the loves of our lives. Each was different, of course, but they were all bright, mischievous, but mild mannered and fiercely loyal companions. Not one of them thought they were a dog, and one was convinced he could drive the family car. All of them could climb like mountain goats. They were typical Stonybrook dogs, full of life and strong opinions, just like Robin. Three of our boys were shown with some success. The most recent dog, from Robin’s final litter of standard Longhair, GGCh. Stonybrook’s Phinito, was described by Robin as “the best I ever bred and I think he might do well.” He finished 2014 as the top longhair in the breed, and Robin never tired of talking about her Brownie. I am confident that when Robin met St. Peter she wore him out lecturing about what a correct dachshund should look like, and the critical importance of dachshund type. And then I know she ran to find Sidney so she could brag about her dear boy, Brownie.

2008

Finally, from Michele Kepalas: “Death is so ugly as it is normal. There is something profoundly unnatural about having to let go of someone you care so much about, and one feels so completely alone. The last time I saw and spoke to my dear friend, Robin was Sunday morning, December 7, 2014. She was failing rapidly and hardly spoke, but did manage to ask if her Brownie was showing this weekend and if the Eukanuba Dog Show was going on in Florida. Robin left us a few days later on December 11, 2014. We pray that God will take good care of you, Robin, and may you watch down on us and see your Stonybrook bloodline of Champions carry on. You will never be forgotten and I am forever grateful you were part of my life and mentor. Thank you.” Compiled by Barbara Axel with special thanks to Jeanne Rice for her painstaking search to find facts and photos.

The Sport and

SPORTSMANSHIP of the Field Trial Submitted by Diane Sennett What has happened to the sport of dachshund field trials? It has become increasingly harder to find grounds to hold trials. Poor sportsmanship, rude behavior and disrespect as well as the social media are starting to give the dachshund people a bad name. This must be turned around if we are to have grounds on which to run the trials.

Non-Regular Field Champion Class Submitted by Diane Sennett In 1995, I was introduced to the sport of dachshund field trials. Since that time, I have been involved with these trials as a participant, a handler, a club secretary, committee member and a judge. During this time I have watched the field trials go through many changes; some good, some not so good. One of the more positive changes has been the nonregular Field Champion class that has been offered at both DCNJ and DFABC trials. This class came about when I noticed how many new people were coming to the trials, running their dogs in the Open Classes and getting that Field Champion title. These newly titled dogs and Photo by Sharon McDonald handlers would return to compete in the field champion classes, only to be discouraged by the lack of call backs Without the ground and bunnies, there can be no field trials. and the huge entry. Then there were the older dogs, which in their youth What can we do to change this? had spectacular runs, but now had slowed down. The Field Champion stake had grown so large it was no longer possible to spend a lot of time First: Remember although you are renting the beagle club grounds, on each brace. As time went on, the field champion class became highly you are a guest and should treat the grounds and the owners competitive for many reasons. One reason, in part, is the DCA point system. Some dogs had access training grounds nearby. Others had respectfully. When you enter a dachshund field trial, you are owners who were able to attend many field trials. There is a plethora of representing all dachshund owners, not just yourself. Act accordingly. highly trained and competitive dogs. This in many respects is a good Second: Respect the judges. You have paid for their opinion. The thing. But then where does that leave the handler and dogs who can judges I know do not have eyes in the back of their heads, nor can they only participate in a few trials each year? For that matter, why even go be all places at once. If asked where a rabbit went, be honest, tell the to a trial and spend money for gas, lodging and entries only to have the truth or simply I don’t know should that be the case. Name calling, dogs run for less than a minute? telling lies and not following the judge’s directions are all forms of poor Thus was born the FEO FC class. In this class dogs receive no points sportsmanship. These judges have also traveled a distance and have as it is strictly a fun class. Many of the participants are older dogs, given up running their own dogs in many instances. Some stakes may some even Absolute winners. The rules are simple: dogs entered in this run 8 hours or more due to conditions. That is a lot of walking and class at a trial may not also be entered in the regular Field Champion running in all kinds of weather and terrain. Our sport is graying out. class. No bitches in season are allowed to run. There is a 10 minute Why do people judge? They judge because of the love of the sport. rather than the 15 time limit on arriving for the class. In some cases, Again, if there are no judges, there can be no field trials. entries are limited to 2 dogs per household. Third: Be respectful towards the committee. Do not tell them what How has this worked out? Great, according to the participants. Some they should or should not be doing. Decisions are made based on the new Field Champions have gotten a little more experience running with conditions and circumstances. Hosting a trial takes a lot of work and seasoned dogs. The “older “ field champions once again can relive their planning. If you have a suggestion, share it with the committee. Don’t be glory days. So far the stakes have not exceeded 12 dogs and are judged critical and bad mouth the committee and club. These people work very by one regular judge and a person who had field trial experience and hard to provide you with a good field trial experience. might want to become a judge. The dogs are left down for a much longer Fourth: Treat others as you wish to be treated. In other words, do time and can be encouraged vocally if needed, to get them back on not treat other exhibitors as point fodder. These actions are seen by all, track. Restarts are not uncommon. The dogs are happy, tails wagging, including the beaglers. It is 10 times harder to improve a bad impression sniffing all the good bunny smells and just being out with their owners. than it is to make a good first impression. The participants are more relaxed, having fun and enjoying the time Lastly: Although the social media can be useful and fun, it can also spent with their dogs. Reminds me of the way field trials were when I be quite detrimental. When you are disrespectful to a club, a person or first started. a beagle club’s grounds and put it on social media, you are creating a In conclusion, is this class a good thing? Yes. It is solely for the very bad impression of yourself as well as the entire dachshund enjoyment of the dogs where they can hunt in a safe environment where community. ! there are bunnies to track. !

The “Pets” group says Leo’s is the first dog monument in Serbia, which has huge problems with stray dogs and notoriously low standards in animal welfare and protection. “The idea was to raise awareness about how important animals are to us and how they are always there for us when we need them,” activist Ivan Kurajov explained.

Not-so miniature dachshund drops 44 lbs. A miniature dachshund from Ohio has lost more than 75% of his body weight after being put on a diet-and-fitness regime by his new owner. Brooke Burton adopted him two years ago from a relative who fed the dog nothing but junk food. Dennis is now 12 lbs. after weighing 56 lbs. - almost five time the size of a normal dog of his breed. The six-year-old dog lost the excess weigh through diet and exercise - but required surgery to remove excess skin. His “before and after” pictures have become a hit on the internet. Ms. Burton said Dennis couldn’t take more than a few steps without being out of breath - before he switched to nothing but dry dog food and started taking frequent walks. “In the beginning, you could tell he was very depressed, that he really didn’t feel good at all,” Ms. Burton, a nursing student, told the Associated Press. “He didn’t have much of a personality. After he lost weight, this bossy little demanding man popped out. He’s into everything; he wants to play with everybody.” Dr. Kathleen Ham, the veterinary surgeon who performed operations to remove Dennis’s excess skin, said the story should be cautionary tale for overindulgent pet owners. “We have an expression: food is not love,” Ms. Ham said. “Most of what your pet wants from you is affection and attention.” Story courtesy of the Associated Press and http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-31863645

Peridontal Disease continued from page 9...

dentists who volunteer to evaluate dental products to be used in dogs and cats to help retard the progression of plaque and/or tartar, and are considered safe. Clients need to definitely stay away from bones, antlers, nylon chews that don’t bend; things that could break the pet’s teeth. Read the side of the containers. Look closely at what you’re feeding your pet or what you’re putting in your dog’s mouth to control plaque. Products on the www.VOHC.org website are highly recommended. CHF: Several chew products are promoted as improving dental health in dogs. What properties, in addition to what you’ve previously mentioned, should a good chew product have? Bellows: A good chew product should be nutritious and not too salty. They should be fully digestible—many have natural products in them—and they should carry the VOHC Seal of Acceptance.

CHF: Does chew time matter for the effectiveness of these products?

CHF: What are our greatest gaps in knowledge in canine periodontal disease?

Bellows: Yes, they do. The more chew time occurs, the better the final effect is. The animal is actually chewing off the plaque.

Bellows: The greatest gaps of knowledge involve how canine periodontal disease affects the body’s distant organs; especially the liver, kidneys, and heart. Many veterinarians believe that periodontal disease is related to organ damage secondary to inflammation; however, research in this area is lacking. !

CHF: How often should dog owners provide chew products to their dog? “Greenies” Approved by VOHC

Bellows: Everything that the dog owner can use helps. Brushing helps, wiping helps, the chew products help. There are water additives that also help. So there’s no really set amount of time. Each of the chew products, if they have the VOHC seal, will say how often the manufacturers recommend it. Generally, it’s once a day. Dachshund Club of America

Miniature Dachshund Rescued After 2 Weeks Underground by Sam Frizell, [Wichita Eagle], Matt Riedl – AP The Kansas dog literally dug herself into a hole. Lucy is one lucky pooch. The miniature dachshund has been rescued two weeks after accidentally digging herself underground in Derby, Kansas, and getting trapped underneath a concrete slab, the Wichita Eagle reports. The dog, which was let out in the yard each day by owner Rebecca Felix and her husband, dug a hole in the ground and then turned and burrowed for 4 feet beneath a concrete slab supporting an air conditioning unit. After two weeks of searching for the dog, the couple heard a quiet bark and called 911 to rescue her. “It really is a miracle that God gave me back Lucy right before her birthday, and if she could talk, we’d be able to write a book about it,” Felix said of Lucy, who turned 4 years old hours after she was rescued.

President’s Report: Carl Holder In his report Carl welcomed new Board members, Charlotte Borghardt and Ken Hagmueller and reminded the members of the duties of the Board.

Recording Secretary: Vicki Spencer Vicki reported she has contacted all of the local dachshund clubs to update club contact information for 2015 and has received responses from all but 6. She is still working on getting the correct information from those six. This information will be published in the roster and the correct contacts need to be put on the website. She has now received most of the standing job descriptions requested. She posted a notice in the Winter DCA newsletter concerning late filing fee fines for clubs who accrue an AKC fine for filing late. A response from the PEC committee regarding Claire Mancha’s request to make changes in the Dachshund Field Trial Rule Book regarding casting at dachshund field trials was emailed to all Board members. The Board accepted the PEC recommendation to make no change and to continue to allow the field trial judges to decide whether to cast or not. Minutes from Chattanooga, TN dated Saturday October 25, 2014 were approved as mailed to Board members.

Corresponding Secretary: Cheryl Shultz Cheryl Shultz passed out a listing of all correspondence received from October through December. There were five items needing the Board’s attention: Motion was adopted to form a committee to review DCA’s position on dachshund racing. The committee will be comprised of Paul Marin and Bob Wlodkowski. After discussion it was decided DCA will continue to offer rosettes for the 4 top places in agility. It was noted that some rosettes have been listed in the premium list which in the past have been donated by members but not approved by the Board. The Board agreed the agility awards listed in the DCA premium lists need to be standardized to include the DCA approved awards only. The

2015 premium has been revised to include the DCA approved rosettes. Motion adopted for DCA to offer agility rosettes as stated in the DCA hosting guidelines. CEC will review rosettes offered in agility to see if changes need to be made. Without objection DCA will not limit the number of DCA field trials a local club can request. A member requested that the conformation evaluation in the triathlon be clarified. Motion was adopted to include the explanation of the conformation evaluation listed on the Evaluator sheet to be added into the guidelines. Due to health reasons Neal Hamilton offered to resign if the Board so desired. Motion was adopted to leave Neal in the Vice President position.

Treasurer’s Report: Ken Levison distributed a treasurer’s report. He reported DCA lost money because we have bought two years’ worth of plaques costing $12,000.00. The plaques are reflected in the inventory list. He noted he still does not have a complete accounting for DCA 2014. Ken presented the proposed 2015 budget. A motion to accept the Budget recommendations as amended with the Challenge trophies budget changing from $1,200.00 to $1,800.00, the Video Library budget moving from $1,000.00 to $250.00 and the Brochure budget moving from $100.00 to $250.00 was adopted.

After a discussion, it was decided AKC had not been specific enough to move forward on this item. Cheryl will request an Ambassador job description from AKC. On 03/26/15 an email was sent from Chris Walker, VP Marketing and Communications at AKC requesting DCA designate one person to act as the club’s representative to provide breed knowledge for the AKC website.

DCA 2016 National Specialty: Paul reported MWDC would like to invite Angela Lloyd to judge Junior Showmanship at the 2016 DCA. Paul will check with Angie to make sure she understands she will not be able to show at any of the host shows that week as well as DCA. He will let Cheryl Shultz know what he finds out, so she can send Angie a contract, if needed.

Triathlon Committee Report: Concerning Scoring and Point Scale – Dr. Denny Van Hook explained how her committee had clarified the 2015 Triathlon conformation evaluation. Motion passed to adopt the revision as proposed by the triathlon committee with one change, which was omitting “significant” in the description for 2 points. Breed Standard Revision – Dr. Denny Van Hook presented two choices for revising the dachshund standard. Discussion followed. Motion was adopted to present to the DCA membership a Breed Standard amendment. A motion was adopted to add a rational and an explanation of the process involved to the amendment in the form of a cover sheet.

membership. Denny will send Board members her recommendation for the Breed Standard amendment for ratification.

CEC Report on Agility Awards: Dr. Denny Van Hook passed out a sheet the CEC committee had devised titled National Agility Trial Awards Required. A motion was adopted to accept the list of agility awards to be given at DCA as recommended by the CEC committee. Proposed Revision of DCA’s Position on Dachshund Racing – After discussion and without objection the wording as depicted on the DCA website will remain the same.

New Business: • Ratification of Tracy Freeling as PEC committee chair - The Board had ratified a motion to appoint Tracy Freeling as PEC Chair. • Ratification of Mike Nothstein as a PEC member - The Board had ratified a motion to appoint Michael Nothstein as a PEC committee member. • Ratification of Monika Martin as 2015 Raffle Chair - The Board had ratified a motion to appoint Monika Martin as 2015 DCA raffle chair. • Ratification of Charlotte Borghardt to attend the AKC Canine Health Foundation 2015 National Parent Club Canine Health Conference sponsored by Purina to be held on August 7 - 9, 2015 in St. Louis, Missouri - The Board had ratified a motion to send Charlotte Borghardt to the ACK Canine Health Foundation 2015 conference. Without objection all ratifications were adopted. • Breeder ad on the DCA Website/dealing with concerns from non-DCA members - Without objection it was agreed if a DCA breeder receives a complaint from a non-DCA member, the breeder will be notified there was a complaint made. To hopefully help alleviate potential problems, Ken Levison will write an article for the DCA Newsletter discussing contracts. • Parade of Honor – Without objection, mainly due to time constraints and the DCA National being over taxed with current activities, it was agreed to leave how the Parade of Honor is handled up to the hosting club. Cheryl will respond to the contributing member. • Procedure of Nominating DCA Performance Judges – A concern was expressed that there is no limit on the number of judges a member can nominate for the DCA field trial. It was suggested we incorporate the same nomination procedure as we do for conformation. Without objection the procedure for Nominating DCA Performance judges will be turned over to PEC for their recommendation. • Procedure for Assigning Junior Judge for DCA – Cheryl explained she will pick the smooth or wire judge to judge Juniors because they traditionally will have the smaller entries. Without objection the assigning of the DCA Junior’s judge will remain the same with the corresponding secretary making the assignment. • Sportsmanship Award – Jerry Cerasini continued on page 55...

MINUTES continued from page 51 reported he is composing criteria for a Sportsmanship Award and is looking for a suitable trophy to pass from year to year. • Obedience Plaque Award Clarification – Denny would like the Board to clarify the wording in the premium list. Motion passed to change the wording to stipulate one dog can receive only one plaque which would be the highest award he/she had earned. The next qualifying dog would be designated as “the next highest scoring dog” and not “the second highest scoring dog”. Denny will work on the wording change and send to the Board for approval before sending to Sheila Parish. • Trust Fund By-Laws – After discussion it was agreed the by-laws need to be re-evaluated. A committee was formed consisting of Denny Van Hook, Paul Martin, Ken Levison and Jerry Cerasini. They will evaluate the by-laws to address concerns and suggest changes. • Challenge Trophy Chair – Anne Carson announced this year will be her last year as Chair of the Challenge Trophies.

The Annual Meeting Minutes Approval Committee consisted of Sandy Arnold, Monika Martin, and Karen Mann. President Carl Holder announced Sweepstakes and Rally judging would be postponed until 2:30 p.m. Before voting began for the DCA 2017 judges, Carl announced the DCA Standing Rule which states: No Judge may be nominated to judge the National Specialty that is currently provisional with AKC. President Holder read the list of the 10 judges’ names eligible to judge at DCA 2017. Robert Wlodkowski, Head Teller oversaw the collection and counting of votes with the following results:

review the changes. He also reported the National Owner Handler series was seeing good results and a Reserve Junior Handler award had been approved. In the future AKC is looking to change the Championship point schedule, offering a Reserve Best Owner-Handled award and incorporating a new judge’s approval system.

Ken Levison had available for the membership two reports - a 2014 Fiscal report and an Account Activity Report for 2014. He reported DCA was financially stable and was in a position to fulfill the mission and goals of the club. The club has assets of $373,175.06. Two years worth of plaques were ordered to take advantage of a bulk discount and $2,000.00 was donated to the DCA Health and Welfare Trust Fund. Ken reported, “The National Specialty netted nearly $6,000.00 which included support from Purina - Purina provided $7,000.00 for our National. DCA retains $4,200.00 and gives $2,800.00 to the host club to support their activities. Other major sources of revenue were membership (22%), newsletter (16%) and the trophy plan (12%). Purina provides us much needed and greatly appreciated support. They donated $4,483.43 to DCA and an equal amount to the Canine Health Foundation in DCA’s name and the $4,200.00 for our National for a total of $8,683.43, which accounts for five percent of our revenue.”

Report of AKC Delegate: Larry Sorenson shared a power point relating to AKC registration, the Breeder of Merit program and AKC’s financial report. He shared highlights of the March AKC delegate’s meeting and reported AKC will now allow specialty clubs to hold two shows per day for two days if entries are under 100. There are 75 Obedience Regulation changes recommended by AKC. He encouraged members to go to the AKC site to Dachshund Club of America

Summer 2015

Vicki Spencer announced DCA 2017 will be held in Louisville, KY at the Crowne Plaza. Conformation, Obedience and Rally will be at the hotel beginning on May 23, 2017. Agility will be on Monday, May 22 at the Competitive Edge Agility and Dog Sports facility 15 minutes away from the hotel. Dates for the DCA field trial and earthdog have not been finalized.

New Business Voting for DCA judges by entire membership: Janet Schwalbe presented a proposal for the election of DCA judges. She suggested DCA follow a similar process for electing conformation judges as done with performance judges. To avoid the costs involved with sending out ballots, Jan proposed the names of the 10 nominated judges be sent to the membership by email. Members could then print out the ballots, vote for one coat or place the same judge’s name on each coat and send in the ballot to a certified teller by a specific date. A ballot will be mailed to those few members who do not have an email address. The new conformation judging selection process will begin for judges elected for DCA 2018. A motion was made to accept the proposal for all members to have the opportunity to cast a vote by mail for the DCA National Conformation judges. The motion was amended to take the top 10 nominated judges and vote for up to 3 with the teller doing a blind draw for each coat assignment. Motion was adopted as amended. Meeting adjourned at 12:50 p.m. Submitted by Vicki Spencer, DCA Recording Secretary _______________________________________

Animals have come to mean so much in our lives. We live in a fragmented and disconnected culture. Politics are ugly, religion is struggling, technology is stressful, and the economy is unfortunate. What’s one thing that we have in our lives that we can depend on? A dog or a cat loving us unconditionally, every day, very faithfully. Jon Katz Dachshund Club of America

Delegate’s Report for March 10, 2015 Larry Sorenson AKC Delegate for Dachshund Club of America Held in Newark, NJ This is the highlights of the Delegates’ Meeting; a complete set of Delegates’ Meeting Minutes are located at: https://s3-us-west2.amazonaws.com/americankennelclub/Delegates_ Meeting_Minutes_March_2015.pdf Highlights from the March Meeting 2015 Delegate Meeting: The March Delegate Meeting was the Board election. Elected: Dr. Carmen L. Battaglia, German Shepherd Dog Club of America; Dr. Thomas M. Davies, Springfield Kennel Club; Steven D. Gladstone, Waterloo Kennel Club. At a meeting of the Board held at the conclusion of the Delegates meeting, the following Board officers were elected: Ronald H. Menaker, Chair Carl C. Ashby, III, Vice Chairman This is a big change. I truly believe it will be for the betterment of AKC. LLS The Chair called on Joseph Baffuto, the CFO, who gave the Financial Report as follows: Good morning, everyone. Thanks to all for joining us today. I’m very appreciative and enthusiastic for this first opportunity as CFO of the American Kennel Club to provide you with the financial performance report for our 2014 year. The highlights of the 2014 audited AKC Consolidated Financial Statements are available for your reading pleasure on the Delegates’ Portal. Just so all readers are aware, as a required treatment of generally accepted accounting principles, GAAP, the audited financials consolidate the activities of AKC, AKC Reunite, the AKC PAC, and the AKC Humane Fund. The 2014 audited financials reflect an increase in unrestricted net assets of $5.7 million. I’ll just briefly mention how this amount was derived from each entity. First, AKC’s operating profit was just below $6 million, which is net after nonbudgeted items of more than a half a million dollars. Next, AKC Reunite’s total operating deficit was just under 300,000. However, please bear in mind, this operating deficit included total costs of $1.4 million paid back to AKC for various services and program support throughout the year. The AKC Humane Fund had operations just in excess of $100,000. Lastly, the AKC PAC operated even with $33,000 in contributions during 2014. In our best interests here today, I will now purposely focus on the 2014 results

of AKC rather than the consolidation and affiliate results. Our core registration revenues in 2014 were equal to that of the prior year at $27 million. In 2014, we registered approximately 481,000 dogs and 210,000 litters, in comparison to 479,000 dogs and 214,000 litters in 13. Over the previous five years, we annually averaged a 7 percent decline in dogs and an 8.75 percent decline in litters. So what may seem as small in this one-half of 1 percent increase in dogs and 2 percent decrease in litters from 2014 -- from 2013 represents progress and an improvement of news for the AKC. Our next largest area of revenue is that of events. There were just over 19,000 events with just under 3.2 million entries garnering more than $15.5 million in related revenue. Additionally, there were solid revenue increases in 2014 from various other programs. In particular, our Canine Partners Program increased by $178,000. Our ReggieBox sales grew by 210,000, and our GoodDog! Helpline provided an additional $618,000 in revenue during 2014. However, with every rose there is a thorn. AKC experienced a deep decline in our royalties and sponsorships of near $2.5 million in 2014. This is almost entirely due to the expiration of our affinity card program for which we are now rebuilding from the ground up. Despite this significant fall-off in royalties and sponsorships, AKC’s total revenue of $59.7 million in 2014 nearly matched that of $59.9 million in 2013. AKC’s total expenses of $53.8 million in 2014 represented a slight, almost 2 percent increase, from the previous year. This increase was most attributable to additional efforts put forth in marketing. And there were also relatively smaller increases in our travel costs, along with some additional spending in our events areas. The AKC Bylaws require that the total amount of Board of Directors’ related expenses be reported annually to the Delegate body. In 2014, that amount was $264,324. I’d also like to quickly mention our investment results for 2014. The year brought AKC positive results; however, these results were nearly not as impressive as market record breaking performance of 2013. Our investments generated a gain of more than $1 million, or better than a 2 percent return on our portfolio. We expect these positive operations and results going forward in 2015. Moving from our AKC operating statement, I would next like to focus our summary on our consolidated balance sheet. Total assets increased by $6 million to $139.2 million as of December 31st, 2014. This was primarily due to the combined increase in our cash and investments. Having positive cash flow is always a great thing. Total liabilities Dachshund Club of America

66

Summer 2015

increased by more than $23.5 million at the year ended December 31st. This increase is entirely attributable to higher accrual amounts for our post-retirement and pension plans. These amounts are annually calculated by an independent actuary based upon a number of assumptions. In 2014, two major factors affected our liabilities. First, continued historically low interest rates. These low rates factor into our plan’s discount rate, and in turn, increase our projected liability. This factor accounted for almost $12 million of our total increase. The second factor relates to a change in actuarial mortality tables being utilized. The change in the tables signified that individuals are continuing to live longer. This also increased our liability by almost $8 million. Unfortunately, we truly have no control over these assessments. However, we may take solace in the fact that we are not alone, since all organizations nationwide that sponsor a pension plan are also suffering from these types of adjustments. These non-cash expenses will decrease in the future ahead since it truly no longer is a matter of if but a matter of when interest rates begin to rise from the record lows. Finally, on the consolidated balance sheet, we will now briefly examine our unrestricted net assets. We show an operating reserve of $32.5 million and a Board-designated reserve for longterm purposes of just nearly $84 million. These reserves, along with our positive cash flow, will continue to allow AKC to meet a myriad of challenges and endeavors in the future. We all are appreciative and enthusiastic about the AKC in 2015 and beyond. Thanks very much for the opportunity and your attention this morning. I will be available up front here after the meeting if anyone would like to discuss the report, and safe travels home. Joseph Baffuto is a great individual and has worked for AKC for many years. This is the BEST report given in many, many years. This is the first time in three years we have received any numbers about AKC litters and individual registrations. LLS The Chair called on the Executive Secretary who read the proposed amendment to Chapter 2, Sections 1 through 16, of the Rules Applying to Dog Shows, as follows: Mr. Crowley: This amendment is to Chapter 2, Sections 1 through 16, of the Rules Applying to Dog Shows. It would make the following changes: Deletion of the word “member” from Section 2 would bring the rules into compliance with current operating procedures. Changes to Section 3, requires a club to hold events in their territory to retain exclusivity and only provides exclusivity for a defined period of time surrounding the show date. Additionally, an appeals process is outlined for clubs that believe permission to hold a show within another club’s territory has been unreasonably withheld. The deletion of Sections 5 through 7 removes outdated and repetitive language. Sections 8 continued on page 90...

Dachshund Club of America National Specialty 2015, Chattanooga, TN

Ch. Treis Pinheiros Buona Sera SW

By Lexa Richmond he 2015 Dachshund Club of America National Specialty was held in Chattanooga, Tennessee at the Chattanooga Choo Choo hotel. The “Choo Choo”, as it is locally referred to, is a famous renovated train terminal located in downtown Chattanooga. The hotel is spread out on 24 acres and includes three guest room buildings, renovated train cars, eateries, gift shops, trolley rides, Track 29 (where the conformation show was held), the Centennial Theatre, and a lecture hall. The 1909 station, with its magnificent 85 foot free standing dome, welcomed participants on Monday with the fabulous Cumberland DC members donning their unmistakable yellow shirts and handing out welcome bags and dinner tickets. Monday evening was the welcome party that served hors d’oeuvers and hosted a cash bar to greet old friends and make new ones. Morning hospitality was served Tuesday through Saturday at Penn Station. For Tuesday through Friday, Terry Carr-Hall graciously donated delicious breads and pastries from his café Provence Breads & Café. Saturday, goodies were served that were donated by Peyton Walker “The Bread Man.” Events included for the DCA week were agility, obedience, rally, two Cumberland DC conformation shows, DCA sweepstakes and DCA specialty spanning over Friday and Saturday. On Sunday this year, the Dachshund Club of Metropolitan Atlanta capped off the week by hosting a conformation specialty. Thursday was the Annual Meeting located at a wonderful venue on the property which was their lecture hall. Many a member could be seen traveling by foot or by golf cart to the meeting. The meeting was well attended and called to order by President Carl Holder at 9:00 am. Larry Sorenson gave the AKC Delegate’s report that included his infamous power point presentation. Sweepstakes and Obedience was held in the afternoon. Judges selected for the 2017 show slated to be in Louisville, KY were: Robert Schwalbe (long), Andra O’Connell (smooth), and Edna “Midge” Martin (wire). Friday evening a Breeder’s Forum was held in one of the lecture hall classrooms. On the panel to discuss their breeding philosophies, strategies, and experiences were Kim Vidrine (standard long), Bobby Sandoval (miniature long), Lexa Richmond (standard smooth), Cyndy Senff (miniature smooth), Lynn Cope (standard wire) and Robbie Lloyd (miniature wire). The moderator was breeder judge Fran Colonna. Later that evening, the ever popular ice cream social was hosted by the DCA board for fanciers to enjoy and unwind from a very long week. There were several fantastic raffle tables this year, and no exception to this was the Juniors Table. Coordinated by Kandee Kostic, the juniors had a huge raffle with lots to choose from. The juniors also had a fun day at the Tennessee Aquarium that has over 10,000 animals and an IMAX theatre. Saturday concluded the conformation judging with Fran Colonna being drawn for BISS. While waiting, onlookers enjoyed the traditional DCA Parade of Veterans. Saturday evening saw fanciers gather for the DCA awards banquet, where achievements were honored. Each guest received a small train with peppermints inside. The week concluded with celebrations of competition, entertainment, education, and camaraderie.

Tracking provides an opportunity for dogs to demonstrate that very special sense they have - the sense of smell. Using this ability, dogs have contributed to their best friends, humans, over the centuries in many ways in times of peace as well as in times of war. The sport of dog tracking is also a great way to show the value of dogs to the general public in these times of so much anti-dog feeling and legislation. In addition, following a dog across a forest preserve on a beautiful spring morning and observing the use of this skill is fantastic fun for the handlers and for the observers. DCA offered a 6 dog TD test and a 3 dog TDX test this year. All entries were Dachshunds with two exceptions. Dog Tracking people are great sportspersons! Of the 14 volunteers needed, only the chairperson and the test secretary (Shawn Nies) were Dachshund owners. The others were friends of tracking ready to step up when needed to make tests possible. None are reimbursed except for breakfast in the great outdoors and the opportunity to participate in a great dog sport. Unfortunately none of the dogs passed the tracking tests this time, but there were a number of “almost” qualifiers. Good job dachsies!!

It takes a “village” to make a field trial work. Beaters line up early Thursday morning as DCA 2015 began with the Open All-Age Dog class.

On Tuesday, March 31 the host Cumberland Valley Dachshund Club held its field trial. Our dogs, Bernie, Jasper and Veela, did not get a callback out of the 130 entered. On April 1, the DCA National Field Trial began with 136 entries. The Open stakes were run consecutively, but because of the large entries it was decided that the Field Champion stakes would be run concurrently on Thursday. Thursday morning dawned with overcast skies, but no rain. Veela was in the 11th brace and I was very happy with her performance. When second series was called, Veela sat high, and I was absolutely thrilled. She was able to hold her place in second and again in fourth series. To say that I was on Cloud 9 would be an understatement. Next came the Best of Field Champions run, where she was braced with Gunnie, handled by Charlie Snider. Veela again worked well and was named Best Field Champion. Finally it was time for her to run for Absolute, where she was braced with Rufus, the Best Open dog. Veela had a great run and was named the DCA National Field Trial Absolute dog! What a thrill for us! It is a once in a lifetime achievement.

Veela’s favorite prize was the stuffed bunny as Best Field Champion. She got a hold of it and did not want to let go. I took her picture at home and she could not stop looking at it, wanting it badly. Some day I will let her have it, but not yet. I would like to thank all Veela’s brace mates and their handlers. It was a pleasure watching the dogs and working with the handlers, in and out of the field. Congratulations to all!

I got my first dachshund, a mini red wire-hair, through the DCA Region IV rescue in 1992 and my love affair with wire-haired dachshunds was born. The next year I got Gretta through Region IV rescue. I was able to get her AKC papers transferred to me. In spring 1994, I attended my first field trial. The two of us novices bumbled along to a first-place finish. Not continuing in field trials, and later earthdog, was not an option. Gretta was almost 6 years old when she attended her first FT and she never looked back, earning her field championship and legs toward her Master earthdog before she died at 12. Skip forward a few years and dogs. In 2004, Bernie (FC Bernd vom Ahorn Wald EE CGC) came into our life, followed in 2006 by Veela (FC Viola von der Hardt-Höhe JE).

Best of Field Champions ready for their tally ho – Charlie Snider with Gunnie and Baerbel Wills with Veela

Veela was born in Germany, and we arranged to pick her up when we visited family there. What a great traveler she was and still is. With a lot of hard work, in 2007 my husband Ed and I were able to introduce a bill in New Hampshire that would allow for the tracking of wounded game with dogs. Bernie and Veela were the first two dogs in New Hampshire that actively (and legally) tracked wounded game. Throughout we attended field trials, Ed becoming more active after Bernie came into our lives. I became an earthdog judge in 2010 and Ed became a field trial judge in 2012. In 2014, we moved to Florida, enjoying the sunshine and warmth all year long. To date, Veela has 517 lifetime field trial merit points and one other Absolute. continued on next page...

2015 TRIATHLON DOG OF THE YEAR

Owned and Handled by Deneice Van Hook, DVM

Triple Champion, MACH 2, PACH White Ridge Sparkling Star CD RE MXG MJG MXP4 MXPB MJP3 MJPB PAX XF SE

Bubbles

Bubbles finally won the DCA Triathlon!

This was her third time trying for that top honor. In 2012 she would have been sitting in the top spot but she decided that she preferred earth dog to field trialing. After a great first run in the field she disappeared. My good friend Pam Reed tried unsuccessfully to find her in the pouring rain but no one saw her anywhere in the field for almost an hour. Our best guess is that she went down a hole and finally came out when she couldn’t get whatever she was after. In 2013 she was again poised to win but was so energetic in the earth dog den that according to the judge she repeatedly bashed her head against the top of the den so hard that she literally stunned herself and stopped working for a while. When she recovered she worked like mad but it was just a little too late to get that elusive “Q”. That year her son Duskey (DC Obsession’s Dark Star SL RN AX AXJ AXP AJP NF) beat her out and won the title. So this year it was finally Bubbles’ turn to win. Duskey gave her another run for her money though. He finished a very respectable second place and he and Bubbles were the only two dogs to qualify in three or more events this year. Several dogs came really, really close and there were some real heart breakers as wonderful dogs made some very minor error that knocked them out of the running. I am certain we will see more great performances from them in the future!! In Bubbles’ first event this year, the field trial, she had a lot of fun but failed to qualify. So it was on to earth dog where she was able to hang on for a qualification in Junior. In agility she did well, garnering top honors as the Highest Scoring Dog in Standard Preferred then she went on to qualify in Rally Advanced, Rally Excellent and Novice B Obedience, culminating by winning the Second Highest Scoring Dog in Regular Obedience! All in all a wonderful performance. Bubbles has been that once in a lifetime dog. The first longhaired Triple Champion (Bench, Field, and Agility), (See Spring 2011 DCA newsletter) she has a long list of accomplishments as you can see by the “alphabet soup” before and after her name. At almost 12 years old she is still actively running in the field, in earth dog, and in agility. We are working on her second PACH (Preferred Agility Champion) title so she can officially be a MACH 2/PACH 2, (a la R2/D2 fame. . grimace). She has only been hampered by my physical and time limitations. She is

always willing and able to do whatever I ask including warm my toes under the covers at night, her favorite spot! What is the Triathlon? I will include a few explanatory notes about the Triathlon for the uninitiated (NOTE: a full description is on the DCA website and is published in the National Premium lists). The Triathlon is a competition that is only held at DCA Nationals. Any dog that is entered in and participates in three or more of the five DCA performance events (Tracking, Field Trial, Earth Dog, Agility, or Obedience/Rally) is automatically in the Triathlon; no other entry is required. Any dog who participates, even if the dog does not qualify, earns a nice engraved medallion. Any dog that qualifies in three or more events receives a certificate for their wall or scrapbook. Dogs accumulate points based on the level of participation, placements, and/or scores (i.e a qualification in Master Earth Dog earns more points than a qualification in Junior Earth Dog). The dog who qualifies in three or more events and has the highest score is the Triathlon Dog of the Year and receives a nice wall plaque to commemorate the accomplishment. Although it takes a lot of time and effort (and money) it is a great event and I hope more will jump into the fun next year! !

Letters to and from the editor ATTENTION She’ll Leave You With A Smile, submitted by Storm Britten Ilouno In my life there have been multiple occasions where an unlikely friendship is forged. These are people with different personalities and quirky habits and hobbies. My friendship with Gretta Roberts was one of those. I met Gretta in 2002 at a dog show in Northern California shortly after my partner and I bought our first show dog. Gretta was welcoming and friendly and a little strange, like me. We became friends right away. We didn’t keep in touch like folks can today, at first. But we always had fun and talked at the dog shows. And back then there were many. As the years went by, we shared several successes with Gretta. When we were showing Roseanna, she had a mini wire out with the McFadden’s. We always supported one another and cheered for each other in the groups. Gretta and I got closer as the years went by. When Facebook came into the picture we began to have long conversations about puppies, stud dogs and dog show people. We exchanged cell phone numbers and started texting and talking as well. About five years ago, I got a disturbing call from Gretta. She had a class dog out with a Professional Handler who specializes in dachshunds and she had found out that the dog had died. The horror story that unfolded regarding that ordeal was troubling and concerning. I was Gretta’s rock while she battled that situation. She called on me for advice and guidance in her struggle. Her dog, Beamer, was killed by another dog in the care of someone other than who she hired to take care of her baby. A litany of lies and deceit ensued. Gretta was beside herself with grief. All she wanted was the truth about her dog. The handler never, not once, picked up the phone to tell her about what happened to Beamer. Instead the handler sent text messages full of stories, lies and manipulation. In fact, Gretta drove to Southern California to pick up Beamer’s body and when she got to the caregivers home, they had placed his body in a box and left it outside on the porch for her to find. They refused to answer the door. He was left in a box, covered in dirt and obviously dead. The pain that Gretta endured and the torture that she lived was insane. Gretta hired an attorney and was able to get some closure, answers and a partial truth. She also was awarded a monetary settlement. It was never about the money for her. She wanted justice for Beamer. The handler got a slap on the wrist and is currently pursuing a judging career. During the time that all of this drama was going on for Gretta, my friend Gail and I were cobreeding a standard wire litter. The sire was a famous dog called Tractor. Gretta had an opportunity to meet Tractor when her handler, Bill McFadden was showing him. She fell in love with him and always dreamed of having a standard wire out of him. After discussing Gretta’s situation, I asked Gail if she would consider letting Gretta have a puppy. Olive had plenty of puppies so she said she would be thrilled to offer one to Gretta. I will never forget the excitement in Gretta’s voice when I called and asked her if she wanted one. She was like a kid in a candy store. I could feel her smiling over the phone. When they were old enough, Gretta drove to San Jose and she picked Lucy. She called me on the way home. Her happiness was infectious. I swear to god, I could feel her smiling. She said to me, “I know Gail likes that fatty bitch, but you know what Storm?” I said, “What?” “I think I got the pick bitch!”, she said with jollity. I was happy for her. I agreed with her even though I hadn’t had my hands on them. It just felt so good to hear that glee in her voice. She eventually named her, "Lucy" after her favorite peanuts character and chose “She’ll Leave You With A Smile” as her registered name. I had given her a list of Kenny Chesney songs to chose from as that was the theme of the litter. As I write this my tears are the overwhelming. I loved her so much and the irony in the name she chose is heart wrenching. Just after Thanksgiving last year (2014) I read on Facebook that Gretta had been killed in a head on collision on her way to work. I contacted her friend, Margie and I was given the story of what had happened. Gretta didn’t know what hit her. A tractor trailer truck crossed the divided line and hit her van head on, killing her instantly. Gretta had three dogs in the car with her as far as we know. Initially we were told that Lucy had perished in the accident with Gretta. I was grief stricken for days. Every time I would think of her I would break out in hysterics. I just couldn’t believe Gretta was gone. It was so unfair. In the days that followed the news, I got in touch with Gretta’s niece. We started conversing on a regular basis and we helped each other through the grief. Gretta had been very close to her Mom and struggled with depression as a result. Her niece is the only family member that she was close to, since her Mom’s passing. About three months after Gretta’s fatal accident, I got a strange text from Gail. All is said was, “LUCY IS ALIVE”. For the next hour I tried to reach Gail but her phone was busy. Eventually she called me and the story was unbelievable. Apparently, we had been lied to for the past couple of months. Lucy had been found in the salvage yard where Gretta’s van had been towed. A few days after it was hauled in, the employees saw a strange dog wandering the yard. Immediately they called Gretta’s family. A week later, they came down and captured her. She was gaunt and frightened to death. From the salvage yard she was placed in a dachshund rescue in Northern California, run by a breeder. For two months they kept Lucy’s survival from us. Finally they called Gail to let her know and a couple of days later, she drove up and rescued her. continued on next page... Dachshund Club of America

Gail sent Lucy to live with Roland and I about three weeks ago. She was very thin and jumpy. At first, she didn’t want any of my dogs near her. Every time they came near her she would snap violently at them and tuck her tail up under herself. She would kiss me and sit with me for hours, but if they came sniffing, she would freak out. As time has passed, she has warmed up to my dogs. For the first week she was shell shocked. I don’t think she spent much time socializing with other dogs, and I was told that Gretta didn’t run her with her minis. Today, she is one of the pack here. She loves to play with our import girl, Hillary. They run and run and run and chase each other in the back yard. She doesn’t snap at mine anymore, and I have found her snuggling up on the couch with them. I’m sure the accident was unbelievably horrific for Lucy. I have noticed every once in a while, maybe four times, that Lucy appears to be experiencing PTSD. She will look up at me with complete confusion and panic. I talk to her. And she still looks at me like she doesn’t know me. I quietly walk over to her, scootch down and pet her, and she comes to. I pick her up and lay her in my arms and look at her. She kisses me over and over and wags her tail. I whisper in her ear, “You know your mommy loves you very much, but she had to go.” And I cry. She kisses my tears and then gets super excited. She stands up and plays patty cake on my face. And then I realize just what is happening. And the stark realization of love creeps in. I miss you Gretta. I’m so sorry you had to go. But, I know it has to be true, because ... She’ll leave you with a smile. ____________________________________________________________ Hi members and subscribers!

kept me busier than I ever remember! It was a very nice litter and I want to thank those DCA members that helped with placement. It takes a village!! Remember to get those litters into the magazine, it’s only $10, and I take them up to the very last minute before sending the files to the printer. It really does help us get our pups into the best homes possible. Just a reminder for advertisers: Please forward your PayPal receipts to me if you’re paying for advertising via that service. It really helps me keep track of who has paid for their ads - and it’s a few less e-mails I have to send wondering about your payment. CORRECTION FROM THE SPRING ISSUE: Page 42, I had the wrong registered name for “Lil” at the bottom of Simmons’ ad. “Lil” is actually Stardox Pretty Little Angel Eyes, owned by Lorraine and David Simmons. Sorry for the confusion!!

Delegates Report continued from page 66 through 16 will be renumbered accordingly. Changes to the new Section 14 which was previously 17 allows clubs to have digital copies of required documents rather than hard copies. There will be one editorial change from the worksheet that you received as opposed to what’s going to be published and voted. Since Rally is now in a separate book from the Obedience regulations, we are adding the Rally Regulations to the list of publications required, if applicable. The amendments were approved by the Dog Show Rule Committee and the Board of Directors. It will be published in the online Gazette and you will be asked to vote on it at the June 2015 meeting. The full text is on the worksheets previously emailed to you along with the one editorial change concerning the Rally Regulations. The proposed amendments will be published in two consecutive Secretary’s Pages, and this will be voted on at the June 2015 Delegate Meeting. THINGS HAPPENING The FCI Restriction on AKC Judges: There was a discussion on the position taken by the ASIA PACIFIC SECTION of FCI, which first rescinded judging approval for AKC judges and then indicated that AKC judges ran the risk of not being approved to judge FCI shows if they judged at non-FCI shows in FCI countries. As a result of this position taken, AKC rescinded the judging approval of all FCI judges residing in countries which are members of the SECTION and indicated that if FCI did not remove the threat to rescind approval to AKC judges was not removed, AKC would remove its approval of all FCI judges effective May 19, 2015 (90 days from the date of the AKC notice to FCI). FCI has indicated that the matter will be reviewed at its March 18-19, 2015, meeting and that its decision will be relayed to AKC immediately after the meeting. The Board agreed that no further AKC action was warranted as that communication from FCI is imminent. It is good to see AKC take a stand on this issue. LLS

Obedience Advisory Committee Recommendations: Staff presented to the Board 75 recommended changes/additions to the Obedience Regulations. These recommendations which originated from an Obedience Advisory Committee (OAC), have been commented on by the fancy and judges, and reviewed with the Companion Events Delegate Committee. The OAC was clearly focused on the future of the sport. In addition to the usual Advisory Committee recommendations meant to clarify and bring greater consistency to current judging practices and event requirements, the OAC also made recommendations with the hope of attracting new participants by modifying administrative procedures to make events more enjoyable and to “extend” the preferred classes to include a new Preferred Utility Dog Excellent title (PUDX) and a Preferred Obedience Champion title (POC). This will be discussed further at the March meeting. There are a lot of changes here; obedience people NEED to take a hard look at these. LLS Reserve Best Junior Handler: The Board reviewed a recommendation to revise the Conformation Junior Showmanship Regulations and Guidelines for Judging Juniors in Conformation to include the awarding of Reserve Best Junior Handler. There was a motion by Mr. Gladstone, seconded by Mr. Powers, it was VOTED (unanimously) to revise The Conformation Junior Showmanship Regulations and Guidelines for Judging Juniors in Conformation as follows: Section 5: E) Best Junior Handler. A club offering Junior Showmanship must offer Best Junior Handler. If a prize is offered, it must be described in the premium list in accordance with Rules Applying to Dog Shows Chapter 5, Section 5. The Junior

Handler placed first in each of the regular Junior Showmanship Classes, if undefeated in any other Junior. Showmanship Class at that show, shall automatically be eligible to compete for Best Junior Handler. Reserve Best Junior Handler. A club offering Junior Showmanship may offer Reserve Best Junior Handler. If a prize is offered, it must be described in the premium list in accordance with Rules Applying to Dog Shows Chapter 5, Section 5. After the judge has awarded the Best Junior Handler, the second place winner from the class that the Junior was awarded Best Junior Handler is to return to the ring to compete for Reserve Best Junior Handler. Anything that promotes the young handler is just GREAT. LLS NATIONAL OWNER-HANDLED SERIES (NOHS): The Board reviewed the success and increased participation in NOHS, which made the phasing out of any mandatory component appropriate. There was a motion by Ms. Cruz, seconded by Mr. Ashby, and it was VOTED (unanimously; absent Mr. Wooding) that the Owner-Handled Series be made an Opt-In Program, effective for shows held on or after January 1, 2016, rather than mandated and that clubs be permitted to hold other non-regular events without having to incorporate NOHS in their schedules. This is a popular program and changing AKC policy to resend the mandate that was attached to the NOHS event is good. LLS Being considered: Reserve Best Owner-Handler in Show New Judging approval system Low entry breeds calculation of points _______________________________________

A new career Sherry and Janie?

Allowing Local Specialty Clubs to Hold Two Days of Shows Per Year: The Board reviewed a proposal from Staff that looked into modifying the Limited Number of Events Policy for specialty clubs to allow local specialty clubs to hold two days of shows (clubs limited to two shows in a day) per calendar year rather than two shows per calendar year.

DCA 2014, Sacramento: Sherry Snyder and Janie Fowler trying out the new exercise equipment...

This means that a standalone local specialty club will be able to hold four shows in two days. Each show must be less than 100 total entries. LLS Dachshund Club of America
