COVER

OTCH Ripley’s Believe It or Not UDX OM2 VER ME Owner and Handler: Roberta Pylate An Obedience Trial Championship has been a dream of mine for so long. Ripley showed me 6 years ago that he was indeed something very special. When Ripley came to live with us in 2003, who would have ever guessed the amount of joy, love, excitement, frustration, and hair-pulling moments we would share as we travelled along this competitive journey. When I started training Ripley, I told my trainer, “I think I can put a CGC on him!” Not knowing what dachshunds are capable of, I thought this would be an honorable goal for him to achieve!

As Ripley and I continued to show in obedience, people started to take notice of him. He was proving himself to be quite the competitor, winning several large utility all-breed classes. I called my trainer, Chris Elliott, just beaming about our success! She said to stay focused and work in brackets of ten so the trail to the OTCh isn’t so daunting. BOY WAS SHE RIGHT!!! Ripley earned ALL the OTCh points and the three required wins in all-breed trials!

POLLY FLEMING

September 18, 1918 ~ August 2, 2013 She liked green bananas... She drove a Packard from St. Louis to Michigan in 1930 when she was twelve years old, her father following in a pick-up truck. Black Sunday would find her preparing to attend Yale University from which she would earn her degree. However, no amount of privilege would keep her from connecting with the common man. The mold was set and she would live her entire life without pretense. She never stood in judgement of others and was incapable of holding a grudge. In 1981 I purchased a dachshund puppy from someone she co-bred a litter with, having never met her. I received a phone call not long after. It was Polly, asking if I’d like to go to a dog show and that she would pick me up. Thus began our thirty-two year journey together. We would go to a dog show almost every weekend. On the drive to and from we would talk about everything but dogs: her life and all the places she had lived, her family and their many travels, books she’d read, you name it. Her age would never define her, it was like talking with an eighteen year old high school girl with much more experience. I learned about dachshunds by sitting next to her ringside and reading her written comments as she described each entry in her catalog. Not to mention her opinion on how she thought the judge was doing. She left nothing out. I watched her live the last third of her life always happy and ready for a new adventure. She loved dachshunds just as she loved life. She was my best friend and she made me laugh. Now I find comfort in my belief that she’s still out there and she’s okay... that eighteen year old high school girl... Eulogy by Beth Ann Mills • fourstardachs@gmail.com Dachshund Club of America

2013 AKC/CHF PARENT CLUB CANINE HEALTH CONFERENCE The AKC/CHF Parent Club Canine Health Conference was held in St. Louis in August. This year’s health conference had topics ranging from key major health issues such as Epilepsy and cancer to such topics as vaccines and physical therapy for dogs. Of great interest and the Key Note topic was the Canine Cognition study (which I will cover in depth in another article).

Canine Epilepsy William B. Thomas, DVM, DACVIM (Neurology), University of Tennessee Not such good news for this disease. Idiopathic epilepsy is the most common chronic neurologic disorder in dogs affecting approximately 1 – 2% of all dogs. There is no test to confirm this disorder; the diagnosis is based on clinical features and exclusion of other causes of seizures. There is no cure and treatment most commonly entails daily administration of Phenobarbital or bromide. While these drugs are fairly effective, side effects are common and about 25% of dogs do not obtain adequate seizure control. There are several active areas of research. One is investigation of genetic factors, which would improve our understanding of this disease, allow recommendations regarding breeding of affected and related dogs and potentially lead to a definitive diagnostic test. Another area of research is evaluating the effectiveness of newer human drugs in dogs and the development of drugs specifically for dogs. Finally, alternatives to drug therapy may offer additional options for treatment. Results of research will hopefully improve our ability to help dogs affected by this common disorder. NOTE: During this briefing, Dr. Thomas also Dachshund Club of America

noted that dogs, contrary to popular myth, do in fact, get strokes. Dr. Thomas sees one or two cases a month at his university.

Inherited Cardiomyopathies Kathryn Meuers, DVM, PhD, North Carolina State University The term cardiomyopathy simply means heart muscle disease. There are many types of cardiomyopathy and two (Arrhythmogenic – AVRC and Dilated) are quite common in the dog. These two cardiomyopathies make up a significant proportion of heart disease in the dog. Only valvular disease is more common. ARVC is very common in Boxers and sometimes English Bulldogs. It is characterized by heart muscle that generally functions well but has an abnormal appearance under the microscope. It has an abnormal appearance under the microscope and has a very abnormal electrical system. Symptoms can include fainting and sudden death. Dilated cardiomyopathy is more common in large breed dogs. Although the term is used for all breeds, the disease is quite different from one breed to another. Although cardiologists generally think of this as a single disease, it is likely many diseases that appear to look similar clinically. From a genetics point of view they will likely


need to look carefully at the differences in the breeds to be able to find the genetic cause. Ultimately this will be helpful because it may allow for improved treatment of this disease by individualizing therapy to the individual breed.

New Strategies to Prevent Canine Posterior Capsule Opacification Heather Chandler DVM, PhD, Ohio State University Cataracts are a progressive change to the lens of the eye, resulting in cloudiness and interference with vision. Cataracts are the most common cause of blindness in dogs. Surgery and placement of an intraocular lens implant can restore normal vision. Although every effort is made to remove as much lens material as possible during cataract surgery, it is inevitable that some lens cells remain. These cells will migrate and proliferate, resulting in the most common complication to surgery, Posterior Capsule Opacification (PCO). PCO interferes with light transmission and results in secondary vision loss. Cataracts occur in all breeds and PCO occurs in up to 100% of canine post-operative cataract patients. Unfortunately, there is no consistently effective treatment for canine PCO. Current treatment can only delay the onset of PCO rather than prevent it. Smaller dogs seem to get PCO faster than larger dogs.

their role in producing CrCL deficiency. Various surgical procedures were implemented in the model through collaboration with a veterinary orthopedic surgeon to evaluate the ability of procedures to restore normal CrCL-intact stifle biomechanics. Ligament loads, along with translation and rotation of the tibia relative to the femur and meniscal loads were evaluated across surgical procedures. Additionally, they will investigate parameters specific to each surgical procedures (e.g. suture tension, tibial plateau rotation angle, etc.) to further understanding of their influence on surgical efficacy. Finally, stifle orthosis (braces(braces) offer an alternative to surgical intervention, especially in patients that are poor anesthesia candidates. In partnership with veterinary prosthetics and orthotics clinic they are characterizing stifle orthosis-using dogs. Additionally they have implemented a preliminary representation of a customized stifle orthosis in their computer model to investigate associated stifle biometrics. Once finalized they will compare stifle biometrics during gait in a CrCL-deficient stifle with and without an orthosis to a CrCL-intact stifle, Furthermore, they will investigate stifle orthosis design and fit parameters (e.g. hinge type and strap tension), along with patient-specific parameters, using computer models to understand their role in orthosis effectiveness.

Bloat and Multiple Organ Failure: What We Know and Investigation of Cranial Where We are Going Cruciate Ligament Deficiency Elizabeth Rozanski, DVM, DACVIM, Tufts and Associated Surgical University Intervention Using Computer Bloat or gastric dilatation volvulus (GDV) is Simulation a common acute condition of large breed dogs, Gina Bertocci, PhD PE, University of Louisville Cranial cruciate ligament (CrCL) deficiency affects the canine stifle (knee) and is one of the most common canine orthopedic injuries, having an economic impact of more than $1 billion in the US in 2003 alone. CrCL deficiency has a prevalence of 2.55% across all breeds. Despite such high prevalence, CrCL deficiency is still poorly understood and is thought to be due to degradation and not the result of trauma. Surgical intervention is often employed to stabilize the CrCL-deficient stifle, but no single surgical procedure is conclusively supported to suggest long term success, osteoarthritis prevention or superiority. NOTE: Smaller breed dogs MAY return to normal function without surgery, larger breed dogs do not. Dr Bertocci’s department developed a canine pelvic limb 3D computer simulation model of a dog walking to gain an improved understanding of stifle biomechanics as well as factors that may predispose dogs to CrCL rupture. The model allows non-invasive visualization and analysis of stifle biomechanics, simulates the intact and CrCLdeficient stifle and was utilized to investigate anatomical characteristics and biomechanical parameters such as ligament stiffness and tibial plateau angle to gain an understanding of

particularly deep chested dogs. (However, this is not uncommon to dachshunds, probably because of the deep chests in this breed.) While much research has focused on the risk factors for the development of GDV, it is unknown why some dogs do quite well with surgery and are home within a day or two and other dogs have severe complications resulting even in death. For many years, severe cases were associated with splenectomy and gastric necrosis necessitating gastric resection; however, these surgical procedures in themselves are relatively benign and don’t explain why a dog would have a profound clinical course. Dr. Rozanski’s group has been investigating the concept of multiple organ failure (MOF) as a uniting theme for explaining the complications associated with GDV. Multiple organ failure or multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) are syndromes that are well-defined in human medicine and beginning to be better understood in dogs as well. In general, critical illness results in the disposition of small blood clots, which block vital blood flow to organs, including kidneys, liver, intestines and lungs. Lack of blood flow to these organs promotes dysfunction and excessive intra-vascular formation of clots results in the consumption of clotting factors Dachshund Club of America

and the development of a bleeding tendency. They confirmed the presence of MODS in dogs with GDV and that dogs with MODS are more likely to die than unaffected dogs. Specific organ functions that are commonly affected in dogs with GDV include bleeding tendency, lungs, liver, gastrointestinal and the kidney. Dogs can be affected with neurological disease, although this is rare. Research has additionally focused on specific clotting changes associated with MODS, and in specific, have looked at early warning signs for the development of clotting abnormalities, including the use of a novel clotting test called the thromboelastograph or TEG, which detects the early hypercoagulable state (excessive clotting) better than conventional clotting tests which document the development of a bleeding tendency condition more effectively. Identification of dogs at risk of complications is vital to help promote early goal-directed therapy (aggressive critical care and surgical intervention) with the hope of PREVENTING the decline in MODS and the subsequent increased risk of death.

Canine Hemangiosarcoma: How Much Do We Really Know and When will we Find a Cure? Jaime Modaino, VMD, PhD, University of Minnesota Significance and Impact: The work in canine hemangiosarcoma is changing paradigms for this disease. Strategic efforts led by our collaborator Dr. Kerstin Lindblad-Toh and together with Dr. Matthew Breen have led to the discovery of heritable traits that account for risk. Collectively, these groups have also defined molecular pathways that contribute to disease progression. In parallel, ongoing work with Dr. Erin Dickerson and Dr. Daniel Vallera, respectively has defined the cellular origin of this disease and provided the foundation of a clinical trial that is enrolling dogs with hemangiosarcoma (HSA). Results from these efforts will help achieve the first meaningful gains in prevention, control and treatment for this disease in 30 years. The Problem – Hemangiosarcoma is a common and lethal cancer of dogs. Some breeds have a higher risk to develop HSA, but the disease can occur in any dog of any age. Not much has changed since the disease was first described in the 1960s. The most significant therapeutic gains were in the introduction of surgery in the 1970s and the introduction of chemotherapy on the 1980s. Since then most practical gains have been incremental, improving the safety and tolerability of chemotherapy. The cause of the disease is unknown. Until recently, it was generally accepted that the tumors arise from continued on next page...


2013 AKC/CHF PARENT CLUB CANINE HEALTH CONFERENCE continued from page 9 endothelial (blood vessel lining) cells. In 2006, researchers first proposed that this tumor might originate from bone marrow derived cells. Since then, they have expanded this line of investigation to document that the tumor cells can differentiate along various lineages, including myeloid (white blood cells), adipose (fat cells) and vascular (blood vessel forming cell). The ongoing work seeks to define the interactions between the tumor cells and their microenvironment that determine which lineage predominates, and that provide a safe niche for tumor growth and progression. They believe that disrupting this niche will delay or prevent metastatic spread, and more importantly, protect the tumor site from hemorrhage, which is the most common lethal event in this disease. The Solution. Researchers are implementing a comprehensive approach to beat canine hemangiosarcoma. This includes development of new therapies to help dogs that develop the disease today, as well as new methods for prevention and control that will reduce the number of dogs that will develop HSA in the future. A better understanding of the disease has allowed them to make significant gains on both fronts of the battle against this aggressive tumor. The progress has not gone unnoticed, allowing them to establish new collaborations that will similarly help human patients with angiosarcoma. Go to http://www.akcchf.org/canine-health/your-dogshealth/diseaseinformation/hemangiosarcoma.html for additional information and ongoing studies.

Infection and Immunity Dr. Adam Birkenheuer, DVM, DACVIM, PhD, North Carolina State University Over 55,000 people per year (worldwide) still die from rabies, with the majority of cases being the result of canine bites. While owners can have exemptions letters from their veterinarians saying their dog cannot be vaccinated for health reasons, if the dog bites someone it will be treated as an unvaccinated dog! Dr. Birkenheuer says that there are currently 22 different vaccines for dogs, however he recommends that only the core vaccines be given to all dogs. Core vaccines are rabies, parvo, CAV-2 and distemper. He said CAV-1, giardia and corona should not be given,

while other vaccines (lepto, etc.) should be given depending on each dog’s particular circumstances. He did NOT recommend the rattlesnake vaccine. Vaccine failures can be attributed to maternal antibody interference (the most common reason for failure), breed disposition, and mishandling of vaccines. By age 12 weeks and definitely by 16 weeks of age, 99% of puppies respond to vaccines appropriately with no maternal interference. One study of 1.2 million dogs showed that smaller dogs are more likely to have an adverse reaction to vaccinations with the dachshund breed having the highest incidence of reactions. Another factor in vaccine reactions was multiple vaccines given at the same time. Of particular note to the audience was the discussion of new “strains” of parvo. There are currently at least 5 different known strains. The newest one, CVP-2c has been around for over a decade with anecdotal evidence that vaccinated dogs show the most severe cases of this strain. However, controlled studies have shown cross protection from existing parvo vaccines.

Application of Physical Therapy to our Canine Patients: The Current Science and Research Opportunities Janet B. Van Dyke, DVM, DACVSMR, Canine Rehabilitation Institute In human medicine practice, physical therapy is considered the standard of care for orthopedic and neurosurgical patients. The field of veterinary rehabilitation has been expanding exponentially over the past decade. Veterinary rehabilitation is the treatment of physical injury or illness in an animal to decrease pain and restore function. Physical therapy is a well-established allied healthcare profession requiring 4-5 years of post graduate training. The notion that veterinarians can “become” physical therapists by attending a short certification course is inappropriate. Rather, they should embrace a collaborative relationship with physical therapy professionals and scientists. The application of physical therapeutic techniques in veterinary practice is primarily a new diagnostic algorithm focusing upon soft tissue impairments that cause loss of normal function in the patients. The pursuit of evidence-based medicine to promote improved

decision-making is well established. It has been suggested that there is insufficient evidence to support the use of physical therapeutic techniques on animal patients, however, if the study of canine stifle osteoarthritis is viewed as an example, the current evidence would not support the use of the most popular surgical procedures. The debate about surgical versus ‘conservative’ management of human ACL injuries rages on with a recent review of the literature concluding that ‘at present there are no evidence-based arguments to recommend systematic surgical reconstruction to any patient who tore his ACL’. Similar debates regarding surgical versus conservative management of low back pain in human patients continue as well. “Conservative management” in veterinary practice today is quite different from that offered in the past. By applying techniques that have been proven in human medicine, we are able to greatly improve the recovery from injury and illness in our canine patients. These “new” techniques involve primarily manual therapies and therapeutic exercise techniques. As we review the human literature, we are discovering many studies originally completed using canine models. The ‘bench’ research can now be applied to our clinical patients and advanced using newer research tools. We are just beginning to pursue this research, and many questions remain. The advent of the New American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation will drive this necessary area of research forward. As the public increasingly expects state-of-the-art care for their canine companions, including appropriate rehabilitation from injuries and illness, it is imperative that the veterinary field devotes all available resources to creating and validating the best possible techniques. These findings will benefit our canine companions and will likely lead to improved care for human patients as well. Dr. Van Dyke founded the Canine Rehabilitation Institute in 2002 to train and certify veterinarians, physical therapists, veterinary technicians and physical therapist assistants in canine rehabilitation. For more information on Canine sports medicine, the CHF has launched a new website called the Canine Athlete, go to www.akcchf.org/Canineathlete. There are many podcasts and webinars on conditioning, rehabilitation, sports injuries, etc. !

BestreFriends r e v o F A Lion and his dog. By Shane Rohleder

our years ago, at the Gerald Wayne Interactive Zoological Park in Wynewood, Oklahoma, a feisty, brown, smoothhaired Dachshund puppy named Milo, dug a hole underneath a divider separating his part of the yard from Bonedigger - a lion cub. The two have been inseparable friends ever since. “They’re together twenty-four-seven and have been for the past five years,” said Joe Exotic, who is an entertainer at the Garold Wayne Interactive Zoological Park, sitting just an hour’s drive south of Oklahoma City. The zoo is as a sanctuary for exotic animals that have been abandoned, misplaced, or abused. It provides a permanent home for the 128 different species and 1400 animals residing on the park, and also for the illustrious Joe Exotic. During our phone interview, Exotic spoke with an old fashioned kindliness that accentuated his charming Oklahoma accent. His passion for exotic animals poured through the receiver, reflected even in the tone of his voice, as he described to me the “extraordinarily rare” relationship between Milo and Bonedigger. “They’re best friends, and Exotic is very protective of them. Besides me, there is only one other person who can even go into his part of the yard, because Bonedigger thinks they’re going to take his wiener dog. I think if you ever took that dog away from that lion he would go through a severe depression and he would die. Milo took care of him when he was young, and somehow, he’s aware of that,” Exotic said. Bonedigger was born with a metabolic bone disease that left him with severely bowed hind legs. He is now a 500-pound male lion with a bushy mane, and Milo is an 11-pound Dachshund with a family of five, all of whom have taken up residence in Bonedigger’s shelter. And while Milo has no handicaps,

F

Bonedigger will never be as tall as a normal lion. He lacks even the ability to jump on and off his low-set shelter because of his bone disease. “I think Bonedigger relies on Milo a lot still. Ya’ know, yeah, he’s 500-pounds, but in order to get on top of his house we’ve had to build a handicap ramp so he can walk up it and lay down. He’ll be lying up there, ya’ know, and Milo will actually carry his meat up to him from the ground,” Exotic said. “They’ll even share their meals together.” Where big cats are usually aggressive while eating, snarling at anyone or anything that dare touch their meal, Bonedigger and Milo eat off the same piece of meat together; and when they’re finished eating, Milo licks Bonedigger’s teeth clean, putting his palm-sized head directly into the jaws of a lion that, if it wanted too, could swallow him whole. I spoke to Lynne Dahlén, the editor of The Dachshund Club of America Magazine, and over twenty-year Dachshund breeder and member of the Badger Dachshund Club, about the nature of Dachshunds, and her thoughts on why this odd relationship between lion and Dachsie (her endearing word for Dachshund) is occurring. Beyond telling me tales of the Dachshund’s extraordinary bravery - “brave to the point of rashness,” as she put it - Dahlén also explained that they have a pack mentality. She thinks Milo and Bonedigger met so young, they don’t see each other as lion and dog, but instead as “just another member of the pack.” I pressed a little further, asking her if she thought there was something more going on than just this instinctual pack mentality. I was admittedly pining for an answer that hinted toward the ethereal, but she said she didn’t think so. “That lion doesn’t have another lion, and an animal in the wild can’t survive alone. An

animal alone is prey. So, those dachsies he’s looking at are his pride, and they accept him as a member of their pack. But I do think it’s pretty cool they’re that bonded. I really do.” Dahlén has been around dachsies long enough to know that they’re not “little people in fur coats”, and says the only thing that worries her about a dachshund and a lion together is, in fact, the canine instinct to attack the weakest member of the pack. “I wonder what the lion would do if one of those dachsies got unintentionally injured and started yelping in pain causing the pack to go after it? That would be my only concern,” she said. In reality, the potential for disaster is everywhere, but five years has passed, and when I talked to Exotic, who has witnessed this outlandish relationship from the beginning, he sounded as awe struck as he would have on day one, and he insisted that something special was taking place between the two at his zoo. “People have such a bad perception of exotic animals, and big cats in captivity, but if there is anything I want people to take from this it’s that, that dog and that lion can teach us humans somethin’...to, I don’t know...get a grip,” he said. Perhaps watching such an extraordinary phenomenon take place day in and day out has developed a deeper belief in the power of nature in Exotic than we “outsiders” can understand. Or, perhaps, Milo the Dachshund, and Bonedigger the lion, are two animals who simply “know something that we don’t, man”. Recently the two helped raise $5,000 for the Rare Species Fund which helps provide funding to critical on the ground international wildlife conservation programs for Tigers. The group also supports the African Association of Zoos because almost 99 per cent of all African youth will never see any of these animals in their natural habitat.

Sophie was ready for rain! And, oh, did she have a lot of rain to look forward to this spring and early summer. Sophie was a friendly, frisky, hunting fool, and she passed that to her offspring. When we got her at age 6½ from breeders Tim and Marilou Callison, she came home and literally squealed for squirrels! The sound was ear piercing. In May 2013, Tim showed her in Veteran’s Class at the Dachshund Club of America National Specialty under her AKC registered name, Ch. Rose Gate Sophie Tucker, JE. After DCA, Sophie may have developed a brain tumor or had a stroke. We just don’t know. Sophie is remembered and missed by everyone who knew and loved her.

COLUMBINE DACHSHUND CLUB

50TH ANNIVERSARY SHOW The Columbine Dachshund Club was established in 1963 with matches held in 1962 and 1963. Our first specialty was held on April 18, 1964, and here, 50 years later, we are still loving and showing Dachshunds. Some of our early members were Earl and Betty Wick, John and Leota Seader, Ruth Williams, Henry May, Clifford Kloss, Patsy Snyder, Gerald Byers, Ch.arles Moerke, Earl Payne, and Les and Inga Hongsermeur. Our early shows were held at Denver area hotels and in 1980 the club hosted the DCA National at the Marriott Hotel. Like so many fledgling clubs, money was tight. In 1984, we moved to North Lakewood Community Center Park where we would show up early, cut the lawn and set up the ring. After the show we enjoyed a picnic and had a great day.

In 1993, we moved our show to Greeley, CO and joined the Greeley Kennel Club cluster. For several years we were back to mowing grass, since the show was outside, but eventually got moved indoors. Each. year we have grown and grown and our show garners majors in all three coats each. year and we push an entry of 100 +/each. year. This year being our 50th anniversary, we went all out and, after our show, had a wonderful BBQ steak dinner for 70+ people, hosted by DCA/Columbine member Jeanie Mahaffey. She had skits, great door prizes and made sure that everyone had a wonderful time. If you missed it, you will want to make sure you plan on the 51st annual show. Club members Jerrel Hogan and Connie Kogler took pictures at the show and dinner and we all hope you enjoy them.

Marie’s Journey Surviving Hemangiosarcoma

by Phyllis Meseroll

W

here do I begin and how do I make you want to read my story without getting bored? Have you ever had that special dog that would do anything you asked? That once in a lifetime dog? I know all my dogs are like that, but I have one special lady that I would like to tell you about. Her name is Marie or my short version is RiRi. Her AKC name is GCh. DC Sunlight’s Evening in Paris, BN, RN, CGC (1 leg to go for a CD). Her research name at Breen Labs is Marie Meseroll. In November of 2012 I took Marie to a Zuchtschau sponsored by the NATC (North American Teckel Club). My intention was to get a written evaluation. I wanted to show the German judge a really nice black-and-tan dachshund. I was delighted when the judge gave Marie a Vorzueglich which in English is “Excellent” – comments – noble head, nice

movement, correct eyes, ears, full of substance – everything on her evaluation form was correct. That same weekend I also entered her in the Gun Steadiness test (Schussfestigkeit) which she passed as well as the Novice Hunter (small game) test where voicing and recall are required. She did it all. We go back to happy times during 2012, which was a very good year. Marie obtained her GCh. title making her a GCh. DC and allowed her to qualify to enter Eukanuba in Florida. She also went on to compete for best field trial dog at the 2012 National Host club and was Best Dual Champion at the DCA National in Atlanta. It was a thrill, to say the least. We went home and prepared to breed her. There were numerous travels to the fertility vet, resulting in 3 puppies out of frozen semen. 2 girls and a boy. I started to walk them in the park and train the boy for the show ring. Winter set in, and I had to watch Dachshund Club of America

those puppies so they didn’t slip on ice or the snow. I was getting them ready for the DCA National in Missouri, as well as entering Marie as a Dual Champion. In February, right around Marie’s 4th birthday, she was running around with the other dogs as she has done before but this time we noticed she was limping. She was coming in season so I did crate rest and some Metacam, a joint medication to reduce inflammation. It didn’t seem to get any better. Our family veterinarian Dr. Evans, changed her antiinflammatory medicine and said to recheck in 2 weeks. Because of an impending snow storm, I moved up the appointment. The day before my appointment Marie was lying next to me and I felt a lump around her shoulder. When I showed Dr. Evans he wanted to keep her and take an x-ray and told me to come back later that afternoon to pick her up. The lump was


much larger under her armpit which was not noticeable until Marie was on her back. He said that even when she was under anesthesia for the x-ray she was pulling her arm back in pain. Dr. Evans went over the x-rays with me and pointed out that the lump appeared to involve her scapula (shoulder bone). He advised me to see Dr. Jason Wheeler, an Orthopedist with Virginia Veterinary Specialist in Charlottesville, VA. My appointment was for a consultation combined with surgery right after if needed. Meanwhile I had another orthopedist in Manassas, VA review Marie’s x-rays. His advice was to take a surgical tissue biopsy to provide more conclusive results than a needle aspiration. With an aspiration, a vet would possibly have to go back in to take more out and that would be harder on Marie and he didn’t want to do that to the patient. To make a long story short, we took Marie to Dr. Wheeler. He called me in after Marie went under anesthesia and he did a CT scan. He said that the lump was a soft tissue tumor and that we had one of two choices to make: take a wedge out or take the whole thing out – I said “TAKE IT ALL OUT”. Surgery was performed on March 11, 2013. Diagnosis on the report: Osteolytic mass left caudal scapula – After a CT scan he felt it was possible to resect the mass without forelimb amputation. Procedure: Partial scapulectomy It turned out that the mass did involve the bone of the scapula and Dr. Wheeler had to take part of the scapula to remove the mass. He sent the tumor and bone to CSU (Colorado State University) and I was told to call the following week for results. I called Dr. Wheeler’s office to get the results and my heart just sank. I was told it was Hemangiosarcoma, grade 2. CSU Laboratory Report – March 19, 2013 REMARKS: This is a moderately differentiated tumor. Further sections AFTER decalcification SEEM TO INDICATE THAT THE TUMOR IS COMPLETELY REMOVED. This tumor has a high chance for metastasis or it could be a metastatic lesion in and of itself. Chemotherapy may help prolong survival. Everything starts to go through your mind. What did I do, where did I take her? Did giving her well water in Virginia where we moved verses city water in New Jersey where we came from have anything to do with it? We had been to Florida for Eukanuba, and I learned there is a fungus down in that area. She is the dog that I have taken into more buildings than our other dogs for obedience and agility trials as well as competing for her Grand Champion title. I was so upset that I ended up having a sciatic nerve problem in my upper leg and had a hard time walking. Boy, I was really in trouble. Marie didn’t need this and neither did I. We had judging assignments in Georgia, and I had sent in all my entries for the 2013 National in Missouri. I was ready to put everything on hold,

but my husband, Mike, said “no” we’ll take it one day at a time. The next step was to make an appointment with Dr. Miller, an internal medicine specialist, who worked in the same office as Dr. Wheeler. By the time I had my appointment, I had read up on everything I could about Hemangiosarcoma. Dr. Miller’s protocol was not that aggressive and I wanted another opinion. She said she totally agreed with me. She said “if it were her dog she would do the same”. When one of the members of my obedience club in Virginia asked about Marie, I posted an up-date on her surgery on our chat site. Someone there recommended Dr. K Ann Jeglum, V.M.D who is an oncologist with the Veterinary Oncology Services and Research Center in West Chester, PA. She came highly recommended. By the time I had my appointment with Dr. Jeglum, Marie had already had a chest x-ray and abdominal ultrasound, all of which showed nothing abnormal.

4 Generation picture is from left to right: Lorraine Simmons holding Grace (Marie’s grandmother 10½ years), Cathy Kelly, Marie’s breeder holding Darcy (Marie’s mother), Phyllis Meseroll holding Marie, Michael Nothstein holding Katee (Marie’s daughter).

March 26, 2013 My appointment with Dr. Jeglum was very interesting to say the least. I had my folder of articles and information ready. Her comment was “put that away”. A chest X-ray was taken again before chemo was started and the x-ray was clear. She explained the protocol which she has had success with. The protocol was called DTIC. Protocol: Doxorubicin (Adriamycin) and Dacarbazine (DTIC) Day 1 – Adriamycin and DTIC (injection of Cerenia was given for nausea) Day 2 – 5 DTIC Day 4 & 5 – CBC and Differential. If neutrapenic, hold treatment for one day Day 10 – CBC and Differential values should be checked Day 21 – Repeat Cycle She was also taking Clavamox, Piroxicam and Pepcid every day. Each cycle consisted of 5 days of IV chemotherapy administration. Marie’s catheter never seemed to last the 5 days and by day 4 she needed a new one. Marie tolerated her chemotherapy well. She kept eating and seemed almost her old self. Her surgery site healed well. She doesn’t even have a limp. The only problem we came up against was on day 10 of her 1st cycle her white count was so low Dr. Jeglum’s office wanted me to get Marie a shot of Neupogen which is a drug that stimulates the WBC (white blood count). It was the weekend and they felt her white count was too low to wait until Monday. My family vet tried to find it at the local human hospitals, but no one had any and so I made the decision to get on Route 81 and head up 5 hours to West Chester, PA on a Friday at 11:30 in the morning. I made sure that they gave me extra Neupogen in the event this should happen again. Marie completed the 4 cycles of her continued on next page... Dachshund Club of America

chemotherapy protocol without major issues. We even took her with us to the Nationals in St. Louis and had blood tests done there that were faxed to the oncologist so that she had good continuity in her care. After this first step, Marie began her “Metronomic Therapy” which she will continue for the rest of her life.

Protocol – Metronomics Pepcid – 1 tablet twice a day Piroxicam –once a day (do not give the day of Methotrexate) Leukeran – one capsule every other day Methotrexate – ¼ tablet once weekly Doxycycline is also part of the protocol when it is available. Breen Lab at North Carolina State University of Veterinary Medicine is doing research into the

genetics of hemangiosarcoma in Dachshunds. I enrolled Marie in this study. Tissue samples of Marie’s tumor and bone and blood samples were sent to them. They confirmed the diagnosis of hemangiosarcoma. They also requested blood samples from as many of Marie’s close relatives as possible to help in their research. So far, her sire, dam, grandmother, uncles, aunts, great-great aunts, great-great uncle, littermates and her kids (total of 15) have contributed blood samples. As I write this article it is August and it has been 5 months since her surgery and our journey through the world of cancer. She has to get another x-ray in September and in October she will get another ultrasound of her abdomen. My only hope is that all her tests are clean and show no signs of anything abnormal. I never thought this would happen to us, even though I picked up the information about Hemangiosarcoma in Dachshunds at the Nationals in Atlanta, GA in 2012. The information was so overwhelming and the articles are so lengthy that you say “I’ll read it later when I have more time” but that time never comes. Little did I know...

Her daughter Katee already has her 1st place in the Open Bitch stake, and her son Trubleu has a placement as well. This Fall we are going to run her in the field because that is what she loves doing. I have started working with her in agility so she can get her VC award (she needs 1 more title). Don’t think for one minute as the months go by I don’t think that one day I will not have her: not knowing if she will be around when she is old and gray, watching her to see if she Marie’s pups are both following in their mother and father’s footsteps, with Katee getting her 1st placement in the does something unusual, having her get field and Trubleu already has a 3 point major and a number of points.

AKC CANINE HEALTH FOUNDATION, INC. GRANT PROGRESS REPORT SUMMARY

Grant: 01759: Targeting Multipotency to Arrest Hemangiosarcoma Progression and Improve Outcomes Principal Investigator: Dr. Jaime F Modiano, VMD PhD Research Institution: University of Minnesota Start Date: 1/1/2013 End Date: 12/31/2015 Progress Report: Mid-Year 1 Report Due: 6/30/2013 Report Received: 6/24/2013 Recommended for Approval: Approved (Content of this report is not confidential. A grant sponsor’s CHF Health Liaison may request the confidential scientific report submitted by the investigator by contacting the CHF office. Original Project Description: Hemangiosarcoma is a rapidly fatal disease. The lifetime risk is alarmingly high for some breeds like Golden Retrievers (~20% will die of this disease) and Portuguese Water Dogs (~15% will die of this disease). Furthermore, the risk of hemangiosarcoma is not limited to a single breed. In fact so many dogs are at risk to develop hemangiosarcoma that 40 Breed Clubs designated it as a research priority for 2012. Despite considerable efforts to find effective treatments, the outcome for dogs with hemangiosarcoma has changed very little over the past 30 years. We believe this is because our understanding of this disease is still rudimentary, but that is changing. Recent evidence suggests hemangiosarcoma conforms to the “cancer stem cell” model, where a defined subset of cells is responsible for initiating and maintaining the tumor. These cells are resistant to conventional therapies and they also are very adaptable, being able to survive in a variety of niches. In the case of hemangiosarcoma, the cancer stem cells also retain or acquire the potential to differentiate along several different lineages. For this project, we will use this property against the tumor by modulating factors that support the selfrenewal of the stem cell compartment and by inducing their terminal differentiation along alternate pathways that have reduced malignant

potential. We propose that disrupting the interactions between hemangiosarcoma cancer stem cells and their microenvironment will enhance the sensitivity of these cells to conventional and targeted therapies and improve the outcomes of dogs with this disease. Grant Objectives: For this project, we will examine the potential to use the multipotency of hemangiosarcoma cells to our advantage by forcing them to differentiate into lineages with reduced malignant potential.

We have made considerable progress on the first aim and have completed initial experiments for the second aim. Our data suggest that IL-8 and CXCL12 mediate maintenance of the cancer stem cell phenotype, as well as interactions between hemangio-sarcoma cells and the microenvironment. Our preliminary data suggest that applications for clinical use may be possible and feasible, but they will likely require precise timing and effective targeting.

Following up on my article in the October issue, I am publishing the results of my further adventures in clarifying the field trialing public’s investment in the current schema of our championship. I wrote to the Performance Events Committee (PEC) of the DCA and asked what would be involved in changing the requirements of our current field championship. The chair of the PEC answered me thus: “Your issues should be brought to the attention of the PEC committee members in your area. They will then bring your issues and ideas to other field trialers in your area to see if they are of concern to the sport. If so, they will then bring it forward to the PEC for discussion. The committee will discuss the issues brought forward to see how and if these issues are of concern throughout the country and if any rule changes should be made. The committee will then forward any recommendations to the board for their consideration. If the recommendations pass the board, they will then be forwarded to AKC for consideration.” Clear enough! So, I thought I’d get a jump on the reps and see if there was anything to report. I created a survey (on Survey Monkey) which I sent to active west coast field trialers. This survey had 3 questions and was completely anonymous. I collected email addresses from trialers who have been active in the last 2 years. These were suggested to me by members of the 6 field trial-giving clubs along the West Coast. I figured I would pass along the data to the PEC and save them the effort if there was no interest and let them know if there was. Basically, I asked one question about casting, one question about the requirements for our FCs and one question about the judges’ seminar. Multiple answers and a "comment" opportunity were available. The following are the results of this survey. This is the breakdown that I sent back to all the trialers I emailed about the survey and also to the 3 PEC reps here on the West Coast. (Just as an FYI, I have received no (none!) feedback from any of the respondents nor the PEC reps since the results were sent out on August 19th. 62 emails were sent out to active field trialers from CDC, DFSW, GPDC, NCDC, GGDC and DCSAV on July 24, 2013. Two email addresses were sent back as non-deliverable. The target audience was suggested by members of each club as those have been consistently in the fields for the last 2 years. By August 15, 39 responses have been recorded. The results have reflected the same percentages throughout the entire response period. The questions asked are in bold type. Casting when there are too few rabbits. Answered: 36 Skipped: 3 Total Respondents: 36

Response choices: I’m OK with casting as we do it now. 50% (18) I would like the DCA / AKC to address casting in the rule book. 50% (18) Comments: (All responses are presented exactly as written) More structured rules and directions, coming from the Midwest where we never need to cast due to running on bred game, I had no idea what was expected. No first place to casting without rabbits. No first for no rabbits Casting should be used in very rare circumstances only....with a MAJOR rabbit shortage I would like more casting. Maybe vote at start of trial?

I’m all about casting when there are no rabbits. Hunting for a bunny for an hour or more just makes people lose interest. Judges need to be educated on what casting is and how to judge the dogs. Most judges do not know casting Casting needs to be defined for dachshunds. Currently not. Our current dachshund field championship requires one first place and 35 points. Beagles require 3 first places and 120 points. Bassets require 2 first places and 60 points in a minimum of 8 trials. Answered: 39 Skipped: 0 Total Respondents: 39 Response choices: I like our field championship the way it is. 76.92% (30) I would like to see more first places required 5.13% (2) I would like more points required. 2.56% (1) I would like both more first places and more points required. 15.38% (6) Comments: It’s hard to say what would be best.

easy 1st place. Good representation of a true field champion? I would also like to see some sort of requirement with respect to the number of different dogs defeated Field trial judges seminar specifically written and presented solely about dachshund field trials rather than the current beagle brace seminar. Answered: 38 Skipped: 1 Total Respondents: 38 Response choices: I’m OK with the judges seminar the way it is now. 31.58% (12) I would like to see a judge’s seminar created specifically for dachshund field trials. 68.42% (26) Comments: It was lovely hearing about beagle trials but if a new person came in wanting to judge dachshunds, they would learn NOTHING about how we run our trials. Should be required to attend separate seminars for each breed you want to judge. Haven’t attended seminar. Just to add, beagles are pack hunters and dachshunds are independent hunters Dachshund field trials were covered in our seminars. Clearly there is very little interest in making our field championship more difficult. There is an even split regarding the casting issue and there is overwhelming interest in a dachshund specific field trial seminar. Would the data be different on the East Coast? The Midwest? Would a grand championship be a way of getting more field time on the dogs? I actually received a lovely real by-US-mail letter from a reader of my article in the last issue of the DCA magazine. This gentleman reported that he would like to see additional titles rather than change the current FC requirements. He also showed great interest in continuing education for FT judges. He said that judging with others is a great way to expand your judging skill-set. He also suggested crowd management training for field marshals. I love it when I get feedback! Thank you sir! I really appreciate your input! This will be all the effort I put into this topic. As some of you know, I have recently purchased some land in Washington State and am onto a new adventure: building a field trial grounds and training area for the doggy blood sports. It’s a great adventure indeed and will take up a great deal of time and energy, but what a legacy! Watch for the grand opening in late 2014.! by Claire Mancha

BREED STANDARD REVISION At the October 19, 2013, meeting of the DCA Board, a committee of Anne Carson, Ken Levison, Robert Schwalbe and Lisa Warren was appointed to proceed with a Boardapproved revision to the AKC breed standard for the Dachshund. The proposed revision is below. Deletions are indicated by strike-through; additions are underlined. If prior approval has been granted by the Board of the American Kennel Club, this revision will be presented for discussion at the DCA annual meeting on May 8, 2014, in Sacramento, California.

Dachshund Breed Standard General Appearance Low to ground, long in body and short of leg, with robust muscular development; the skin is elastic and pliable without excessive wrinkling. Appearing neither crippled, awkward, nor cramped in his capacity for movement, the Dachshund is well-balanced with bold and confident head carriage and intelligent, alert facial expression. His hunting spirit, good nose, loud tongue and distinctive build make him well-suited for below-ground work and for beating the bush. His keen nose gives him an advantage over most other breeds for trailing. NOTE: Inasmuch as the Dachshund is a hunting dog, scars from honorable wounds shall not be considered a fault.

Size, Proportion, Substance Bred and shown in two sizes, standard and miniature; miniatures are not a separate classification but compete in a class division for “11 pounds and under at 12 months of age and older.” Weight of the standard size is usually between 16 and 32 pounds.

Head Viewed from above or from the side, the head tapers uniformly to the tip of the nose. The eyes are of medium size, almond-shaped and darkrimmed, with an energetic, pleasant expression; not piercing; very dark in color. The bridge bones over the eyes are strongly prominent. Wall eyes, except in the case of dappled dogs, are a serious fault. The ears are set near the top of the head, not too far forward, of moderate length, rounded, not narrow, pointed, or folded. Their carriage, when animated, is with the forward edge just touching the cheek so that the ears frame the face. The skull is slightly arched, neither too broad nor too narrow, and slopes gradually with little perceptible stop into the finely-formed, slightly arched muzzle, giving a Roman appearance. Lips are tightly stretched, well covering the lower jaw. Nostrils well open. Jaws opening wide and hinged well back of the eyes, with strongly developed bones and teeth. Teeth - Powerful canine teeth; teeth fit closely together in a scissors bite. An even bite is a minor fault. Any other deviation is a serious fault.

Neck Long, muscular, clean-cut, without dewlap, slightly arched in the nape, flowing gracefully into the shoulders without creating the impression of a right angle.

Trunk The trunk is long and fully muscled. When viewed in profile, the back lies in the straightest possible line between the withers and the

short, very slightly arched loin. A body that hangs loosely between the shoulders is a serious fault. Abdomen - Slightly drawn up.

Forequarters For effective underground work, the front must be strong, deep, long and cleanly muscled. Forequarters in detail: Chest - The breast-bone is strongly prominent in front so that on either side a depression or dimple appears. When viewed from the front, the thorax appears oval and extends downward to the mid-point of the forearm. The enclosing structure of the well-sprung ribs appears full and oval to allow, by its ample capacity, complete development of heart and lungs. The keel merges gradually into the line of the abdomen and extends well beyond the front legs. Viewed in profile, the lowest point of the breast line is covered by the front leg. Shoulder blades - long, broad, well-laid back and firmly placed upon the fully developed thorax, closely fitted at the withers, furnished with hard yet pliable muscles. Upper Arm - Ideally the same length as the shoulder blade and at right angles to the latter, strong of bone and hard of muscle, lying close to the ribs, with elbows close to the body, yet capable of free movement. Forearm - Short; supplied with hard yet pliable muscles on the front and outside, with tightly stretched tendons on the inside and at the back, slightly curved inwards. The joints between the forearms and the feet (wrists) are closer together than the shoulder joints, so that the front does not appear absolutely straight. The inclined shoulder blades, upper arms and curved forearms form parentheses that enclose the ribcage, creating the correct “wraparound front.” Knuckling over is a disqualifying fault. Feet Front paws are full, tight, compact, with well-arched toes and tough, thick pads. They may be equally inclined a trifle outward. There are five toes, four in use, close together with a pronounced arch and strong, short nails. Front dewclaws may be removed.

Hindquarters Strong and cleanly muscled. The pelvis, the thigh, the second thigh, and the rear pastern are ideally the same length and give the appearance of a series of right angles. From the rear, the thighs are strong and powerful. The legs turn neither in nor out. Rear pasterns Short and strong, perpendicular to the second thigh bone. When viewed from behind, they are upright and parallel. Feet-Hind Paws - Smaller than the front paws with four compactly closed and arched toes with tough, thick pads. The entire foot points straight ahead and is balanced equally on the ball and not merely on the toes. Rear dewclaws should be removed. Croup - Long, rounded and full, sinking slightly toward the tail. Tail - Set in continuation of the spine, extending without kinks, twists, or pronounced curvature, and not carried too gaily.

Gait Fluid and smooth. Forelegs reach well forward, without much lift, in unison with the driving action of hind legs. The correct shoulder assembly and well-fitted elbows allow the long, free stride in front. Viewed from the front, the legs do not move in exact parallel planes, but incline slightly inward. Hind legs drive on a line with the forelegs, with hock joints and rear pasterns (metatarsus) turning neither in nor out. The propulsion of the hind leg depends on the dog's ability to carry the hind leg to complete extension. Viewed in profile, the forward reach of the hind leg equals the rear extension. The thrust of correct movement is seen when the rear pads are clearly exposed during rear extension. Rear feet do not reach upward toward the abdomen and there is no appearance of walking on the rear pasterns. Feet must travel parallel to the line of motion with no tendency to swing out, cross over, or interfere with each other. Short, choppy movement,

rolling or high-stepping gait, close or overly wide coming or going are incorrect. The Dachshund must have agility, freedom of movement, and endurance to do the work for which he was developed.

Temperament The Dachshund is clever, lively and courageous to the point of rashness, persevering in above- and below-ground work, with all the senses well-developed. Any display of shyness is a serious fault.

Special Characteristics of the Three Coat Varieties The Dachshund is bred with three varieties of coat: (1) Smooth; (2) Wirehaired; (3) Longhaired and is shown in two sizes, standard and miniature. White on the chest or other parts of the body is highly undesirable and a solid patch of white, with or without ticking or roaning, which extends more than an inch in any direction is a disqualification, except in dapples, on which a large amount of white on the chest is permissible. In dapple dogs light gray is not to be confused with white. White due to aging or scarring must not be faulted. All three varieties and both sizes must conform to the characteristics already specified. The following features are applicable for each variety: Smooth Dachshund Coat - Short, smooth and shining. Should be neither too long nor too thick. Ears not leathery. Tail - Gradually tapered to a point, well but not too richly haired. Long sleek bristles on the underside are considered a patch of strong-growing hair, not a fault. A brush tail is a fault, as is also a partly or wholly hairless tail. Color of Hair - Although base color is immaterial, certain patterns and basic colors predominate. One-colored Dachshunds include red and cream, with or without a shading of interspersed dark hairs. A small amount of white on the chest is acceptable, but not desirable. Nose and nails - black. Two-colored Dachshunds include black, chocolate, wild boar, gray (blue) and fawn (Isabella), each with deep, rich tan or cream markings over the eyes, on the sides of the jaw and underlip, on the inner edge of the ear, front, breast, sometimes on the throat, inside and behind the front legs, on the paws and around the anus, and from there to about one-third to one-half of the length of the tail on the underside. Undue prominence of tan or cream markings is undesirable. A small amount of white on the chest is acceptable but not desirable. Nose and nails-in the case of black dogs, black; for chocolate and all other colors, dark brown, but self-colored is acceptable. Dappled dachshunds - The dapple (merle) pattern is expressed as lighter-colored areas contrasting with the darker base color, which may be any acceptable color. Neither the light nor the dark color should predominate. Nose and nails are the same as for one- and two-colored Dachshunds. Partial or wholly blue (wall) eyes are as acceptable as dark eyes. A large area of white on the chest of a dapple is permissible. Brindle is a pattern (as opposed to a color) in which black or dark stripes occur over the entire body although in some specimens the pattern may be visible only in the tan points. Sable - the sable pattern consists of a uniform dark overlay on red dogs. The overlay hairs are double-pigmented, with the tip of each hair much darker than the base color. The pattern usually displays a widow’s peak on the head. Nose, nails and eye rims are black. Eyes are dark, the darker the better.

when viewed from a distance, resembles the smooth. Any sort of soft hair in the outercoat, wherever found on the body, especially on the top of the head, is a fault. The same is true of long, curly, or wavy hair, or hair that sticks out irregularly in all directions. Tail - Robust, thickly haired, gradually tapering to a point. A flag tail is a fault. Color of Hair - While the most common colors are wild boar, black and tan, and various shades of red, all colors and patterns listed above are admissible. Wild boar (agouti) appears as banding of the individual hairs and imparts an overall grizzled effect which is most often seen on wirehaired Dachshunds, but may also appear on other coats. Tan points may or may not be evident. Variations include red boar and chocolateand-tan boar. Nose, nails and eye rims are black on wild-boar and redboar dachshunds. On chocolate-and-tan-boar dachshunds, nose, nails, eye rims and eyes are self-colored, the darker the better. A small amount of white on the chest, although acceptable, is not desirable. Nose and nails - same as for the smooth variety. Longhaired Dachshund Coat - The sleek, glistening, often slightly wavy hair is longer under the neck and on forechest, the underside of the body, the ears and behind the legs. The coat gives the dog an elegant appearance. Short hair on the ear is not desirable. Too profuse a coat which masks type, equally long hair over the whole body, a curly coat, or a pronounced parting on the back are faults. Tail - Carried gracefully in prolongation of the spine; the hair attains its greatest length here and forms a veritable flag. Color of Hair - Same as for the smooth Dachshund. Nose and nailssame as for the smooth variety. The foregoing description is that of the ideal Dachshund. Any deviation from the above described dog must be penalized to the extent of the deviation keeping in mind the importance of the contribution of the various features toward the basic original purpose of the breed. Disqualifications Knuckling over of front legs White on the chest or other parts of the body is highly undesirable and a solid patch of white, with or without ticking or roaning, which extends more than an inch in any direction is a disqualification, except in dapples, on which a large amount of white on the chest is permissible. In dapple dogs light gray is not to be confused with white. White due to aging or scarring must not be faulted. Effective March 1, 2007 Approved January 9, 2007

Wirehaired Dachshunds Coat - With the exception of jaw, eyebrows, and ears, the whole body is covered with a uniform tight, short, thick, rough, hard, outer coat but with finer, somewhat softer, shorter hairs (undercoat) everywhere distributed between the coarser hairs. The absence of an undercoat is a fault. The distinctive facial furnishings include a beard and eyebrows. On the ears the hair is shorter than on the body, almost smooth. The general arrangement of the hair is such that the wirehaired Dachshund, Dachshund Club of America

The CAT AKC’s Newest Performance Event by Karen R. Scheiner

Ready, set, Tally Ho!!! And the dachshund was off and running! No, it wasn’t really a cat, or even a rabbit. But he didn’t know that - or he just didn’t care. Never mind the details. The little doxie just gave chase to several white plastic bags affixed to a fastmoving line on a pulley. He eagerly chased the lure around the 300 yard course with motivation and speed. At the end, he was actually permitted to “catch” the lure, even ripping the bag from the line. The excitement he showed was overwhelming. He wanted more! AKC’s newest all-breed performance event is the “CAT” - short for Coursing Ability Test. It is essentially the same as the lure-coursing test that has been offered exclusively to sight hounds for years. It is now making its way across the country as the newest all-breed challenge. According to AKC records, as of October 6, 2013, a total of 82 dachshunds had been awarded the title of “CA” (three qualifying runs). Of those, 12 dachshunds earned “CAA” (10

qualifying runs), and two had earned the “CAX” (25 qualifying runs). Rocky and Me On a cool, sunny morning last November, I took Rocky out to a large grassy field. Initially, he would see other dogs anxiously waiting for their turns, wildly yapping, wincing and barking. I kneeled on the ground next to him, holding tight to the back of his collar with both hands. Next he could hear the humming motor of the pulley mechanism. His interest piqued. Then, without warning, the line went whizzing by his head. He watched the lure. Tally Ho! I released his collar. He seized the moment. He was off and running! Unlike other events that I normally participate in with my dachshunds, this was the only time that practice was not a requirement – nor was it particularly necessary. There was, in fact, no advance training for this first time event for both of us – just my sheer reliance on his natural prey drive, and a lot of raw, powerful energy in my three-year old dachshund. The event was a success! Rocky had earned his first leg in a Coursing Ability Test. We were hooked! Needless to say, to prepare for the CAT challenge, the dog should be in good physical condition. Long walks (or runs) are particularly worthwhile for building stamina. Less conditioned dogs lose energy and fizzle out before Dachshund Club of America

completing the run. Also, offering water before and after the run is a good idea. Because of the importance of hydration, I often will throw a piece of chicken into a shallow dish of water before the run, to ensure that my dog will drink. (This also applies in agility, as well). After the run, the dog should be permitted to walk around slowly to cool down. Offer more water before returning him to his crate. In the past, I have asked the lure operator to slightly slow down the speed of the lure and to remember it’s a dachshund and not a border collie giving chase. That has been helpful to my doxies who have, on occasion, lost sight of a lure that was speeding way faster than they could run. The handler should be vigilant of the speed of the lure, as this is regulated by the lure operator and can be adjusted for each dog. AKC Coursing Test Rules The first Coursing Ability Tests were offered across the country in early 2012, having been approved as an AKC performance event in 2011. Since that time, the popularity of this event has quickly spread. Essentially, any owner of a dog with chase instinct can find fun and success in this event – even a dachshund! The CAT is a non-competitive event. The judge can either pass, or fail, the dog. There are no placements and there are no scores. Every qualifying run earns an orange ribbon. Unlike in field trials, in the CAT, dogs run singularly. The test is open to all dogs that are at least 12 months of age with AKC registration, including PAL and AKC Canine Partners members. The distance of the course for dogs under 12 inch at the withers – which would probably be all dachshunds, is 300 yards. (Dogs that are brachycephalic “flat faced”, also run 300 yards. Dogs measuring 12 inch and over run a 600 yard


course.) At the time of check-in, an inspection committee inspects each entered dog to rule out lameness. Females are swiped to determine if they are in season (and thus not eligible to participate.) To pass, the AKC rules require that the dog must complete the course “with enthusiasm and without interruption.” A dog that loves a good chase should have no problem. For a 300 yard course, the maximum course time is 90 seconds. However, despite this time limit, the judge has broad discretion and makes the final determination as to whether the dog passes or not. The time limit is set so as to prevent dogs who are just walking, or straying from the course, from passing. I have learned this from personal experience as one of my tiniest miniature dachshunds, Toby, who is 15 months old, recently passed, by staying steady on the lure. Although her run was timed at slightly over the 90 second limit, the judge awarded her an orange ribbon, stating that she had been enthusiastic, had stayed on the lure and thus had completed her job.

Practicing the Lure Chase Notwithstanding the fact that practice is not necessary, for some dogs this may be helpful. If you find that your doxie strays from the course, or loses sight of the lure, he can benefit from a few practice sessions. Although most dogs feel the excitement when the lure whizzes past their heads, others need additional stimuli. Throwing treats, such as cut-up chicken or little pieces of roast beef, directly onto the lure works extremely well and is not soon forgotten. Eventually, the dogs start to think that the treats are in the lure. Another way to make the moving lure enticing, is to have the lure operator “taunt” the dog, by running the lure back and forth in front of the dog, before he is released. As dachshunds are more dependent upon tracking by scent as opposed to sight, shorter practice

“A YEAR OF REMEMBRANCES ”

a love story

runs with frequent turns can help them to learn to use visual cues to better follow the lure. Risks This article would not be complete without mention of the inherent risks associated with the CAT event. Obviously, all sports will have some risk to participants; the CAT may have more risks than others. Although I have participated in less than a dozen runs, I witnessed several dogs suffer injuries at a CAT. These include heat exhaustion, dehydration, as well as broken toes and most frequently, rope burn on the dogs’ paws from stepping on the speeding line. The handler should take care to evaluate their dogs after the runs. An Event to Enjoy! The Coursing Ability Test is another fun performance event that you can try with your dachshund. Personally, I have found that some of my dachshunds love this event, while others “just don’t get it.” I guess that’s why this event is not for everyone. However, it can be really thrilling if your dog is motivated and loves a good chase. !

Recounting the special memories and emotions that mark all our lives, Diane began to write this story after her husband’s untimely death in 2007. Their “love affair” marriage started as a blind date over the phone, he lived in Houston and she in New York City. From that first phone call, Diane takes the reader through the year following Don’s death, with remembrances of their thirty-two marriage, as she moves forward to build a new life without him. This is a story about love, loss, grief, survival, local town politics, Harley Davidsons, dog shows, and of course…DACHSHUNDS.

CHARLES A. BARIS JOHN R. HART Ch. Kemper Dachs Bad Habits

An interview with the BarHar Dachshund Legends (reprinted with permission, Doxie Digest, Spring 2012)

Charles A. Baris

T

his native New Yorker was born and raised on the Isle of Manhattan, graduated from Mt. St. Michael Academy and St. John’s University and spent his Professional career on Madison Avenue in the advertising business. Since retirement, he can be found working at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. It wasn’t until 1969 when, by chance, a rather opinionated red smooth Dachshund named Lisl came into his life and changed it forever. Charles began his love for the breed, and his winning ways eventually grew into a rather impressive record. A breeder, owner, handler, he managed to dominate the Dachshund breed ring from 1975 to 1985, finishing over 85 Dachshunds with more than 800 Best of Variety; numerous hound groups and All Breed Best in Show on 4 different Dachshunds (long, smooth and wire). Each climbed to #1 in the statistics, making Charles one of the most successful owner/handlers in the history of the breed, and BARHAR (Baris and Hart) the only kennel to accomplish this feat. During the 1980s, Charles campaigned the

Sky daughter, Ch. Doxhaus Starmaker of Barhar, and the longhair, Ch. Kemper Dachs Bad Habits many times into the Best in Show winners circle, continuing his ability to take his dogs to #1 on the charts. A little-known fact is Charles also bred and showed long and wire mini Dachshunds, German Wirehaired Pointers, Dandie Dinmont Terriers, and a Petite Basset Griffon Vendeen, all of which lived harmoniously in their “kitchen kennel”. At the height of his show career in 1985, Charles decided to turn in his “lead” for a turn at judging, and never returned to the show ring again as an exhibitor. Charles remains active in the dog world: former DCA’s delegate to the AKC, a position enjoyed for 12 years; he is also President of the Knickerbocker Dachshund Club and member of several allbreed clubs. He divides his time between his home in New York City and his Oceanside retreat on the Delmarva Peninsula. Charles continues to judge dog shows all over the world and thanks his many Dachshunds who have made this all possible... the wonderful world of dogs. None of this would have been possible without the love and guidance of his life-long partner, John Hart, who was there on the side-lines. Dachshund Club of America

Of course, I am thankful to my partner, Charles Baris, without whom this breathtaking adventure would not have been possible. And, lest I forget... Thank you God.” Charles Baris and John Hart created the renowned BarHar Dachshunds. Listed below are some of their famous cast of characters: • Ch. Barhar Big Spender S. - the first Barhar champion. • Ch. Midernoch Wild Card W (Minnie) - dam of 10 wire champions whose children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren dominated the wire ring, including a Hound Group 1 at the Garden and several DCA BOV National wins, as well. • Ch. Barhar Pickwick, (Pippin) - #1 wire, as well as DCA BOV 1977. • Ch. Barhar Minnie’s Boy W - #1 wire 1976, BOV DCA 1975 from the classes, and another


DCA BOV in 1976 with several all breed best in shows and many group wins. • Ch. Kemper Dachs Bad Habits - #1 long 1980, 250 BOV’s, as well as several all breed best in show wins and numerous hound groups. • Ch. Doxhaus Starmaker of Barhar, a Sky daughter, with many BIS wins and 150 BOV’.

Interview



The Barhar Boys, Charles Baris and John Hart, respond to the Doxie Digest interview: Question #1: How did you learn so much about Dachshunds and who were your mentors in the Dachshund world? CAB: I read all the old Dachshund magazines that had so many wonderful articles in them written by the top breeders of the day...studied the photos of the dogs, developing a mental image of the standard. John Hart was my best mentor who knew so much about the breed. JRH: I read and re-read the American Dachshund, particularly the 20th Anniversary Issue that was the bible of the breed and still is. Question #2: Why do you think you and John have been so successful with breeding topquality, winning Dachshunds?

Ch. Farmeadow Light Up the Sky

CAB: I think God played a role here. However, that is another story for another day.

Charles with Lisl

BOTH: Watch, look and above all listened, asked questions but did not voice an opinion until the time came when we felt I had an opinion to share. After many years doing my homework, l felt I had a good foundation for my opinion IF asked. I think because John and I had different opinions and points of view on our dogs and breeding, it helped keep us open-minded and objective. Question #3: What is the lineage of your tap Dachshunds?

Ch. Doxhaus Starmaker of Barhar

ANSWER: Smooths - Dunkeldorf, Heying Teckel and Fleming Wires - Westphalen Longs - Kemper Dachs, and Bayard Question #4: What advice would you give to someone new to the world of breeding Dachshunds? BOTH: Study and read the old magazines if you can get your hands on them. The articles, although written a while ago, still apply. Sit at ringside and study the dogs in the ring with an open mind and talk to the breeders. Don’t be too quick to judge and run your mouth. Question #5: LOL! How were you able to breed and raise Dachshund puppies in an apartment in New York City? CAB: Now that would be quite a picture! When we were breeding and showing from 19701998, we had a large home in Montrose, NY. with an outside exercise area. Although we had what we called our “Kitchen Kennel” all our dogs lived with us in this kitchen area and were exposed to many people and situations that we felt contributed to their good temperament inside

and outside the show ring. Constant socialization is very important to new pups and older dogs, as well. All our dogs were free to socialize until feeding or bedtime when each would go to their own house (plastic crate) that they loved. Question #6: Since you have experience with all 3 varieties, besides their coat, what do you think differentiates the 3 varieties from each other? CAB: Smooths, with their strong Germanic tendencies, are in charge of all situations, and very opinionated. Longs, very easy-going and laid-back, prefect to sit back and watch the others get into trouble. Wires, the clowns, are always in motion and love everybody. Kiss, Kiss, Kiss... JRH: I once heard it said that the smooth was the sophisticate, the long was the aristocrat, and the wire was the buffoon. Question #7: What is the top challenge in proper breeding for each variety? BOTH: Finding a good quality foundation bitch If you do not have one, then go out and buy a good one. Line breed her to stud dogs in her pedigree that have produced some of the qualities you want to introduce to your line and, hopefully, the breeding will produce. Do not breed to photos of stud dogs. Repeat the breeding at least one more time. Sometimes, the second time around will produce qualities lacking in the first attempt. continued on next page...

Question #8: As a judge, what is the most common fault you see in the Dachshund breed? CAB: As a judge, I think dogs who finished their championship by the “Grace of God” are now in the specials class and should not be. We have lost a strong under jaw; we now have flat back with no raise over the loin. We now have fronts that are set too far forward and lacking upper arm. Our breed was meant to be gaited at a proper pace, not raced around the ring as so many are these days.

There is nothing more unsightly than a shortlegged Dachshund moving at a pace it cannot manage with its legs going in all directions.

Ch. Barhar Pickwick

Question #9: What concerns do you have about the future of the Dachshund breed? CAB: Our concerns lie with smooths and longs. There has been remarkable improvement in miniatures in all 3 coats. Standard wires are much improved and much better now. For the most part, smooths, with a few exceptions, have taken a few steps backward. Longs essentially have remained the same. I think they could be a little smaller and shown with less coat, which masks breed type. Not a pretty look in my opinion. Proper grooming is important.

Ch. Farmeadow Light Up the Sky

Pippin at 7 months.

Question #10: If you could change anything in the Dachshund world, what would it be? BOTH: The newcomer with a few wins under their belt becomes an instant expert. In addition, that new exhibitor should stay around and watch the entire Dachshund judging instead of packing up and leaving after they have shown. Maybe even stay to watch groups and Best in Show. Spend time

Ch. Barhar Minnie’s Boy

talking to other breeders as well as breeders of other breeds. Make new acquaintances and develop new friendships. This is how you learn and grow in the sport, by expanding your horizons. Question #11: Do you have a fond memory you or John can share from your time in the Dachshund world? BOTH: The first time we laid eyes on a 7month-old cherry red smooth puppy that we later named Farmeadow Light Up the Sky. CAB: The DCA (1978) when our smooth Dachshund “Light Up The Sky” won his third consecutive Best of Variety and was promptly retired. The honor of being elected DCA delegate to the American Kennel Club and when I stepped down after 13 years, I received a huge standing ovation by the membership at the DCA Annual Meeting for my thirty years of service to the club and fancy. That was quite an emotional moment for me. JRH: At one of the associated shows with DCA, Judge Tommie Steward (a prominent wire breeder judge), in her final cut for Best of Variety, pulled out Ch. Barhar Pickwick, Ch. Barhar Minnie’s Boy W., Ch. Barhar Dulcinea, Ch. Barhar New Girl in Town and Ch. Barhar Gingerbread Lady from a huge class of specials – all litter mates. BOTH: The Barhar Boys, Minnie’s Boy, Pippin and Light Up the Sky winning the DCA three years in a row – never done before. Question #12: Today and in the past, what activities have you and your dogs been involved in, besides the show ring? BOTH: All our activities and efforts revolved around Dachshund conformation, with no

apology for that. We also devoted a great deal of time to our Dachshund Club, Knickerbocker, trying to make it a special annual event where people would come and enjoy themselves and return the following year with new friends. I think we succeeded in this area. Question #13: What Dachshunds do you have now at home with you and John? BOTH: In 1995, when our last Dachshund, Minnie’s Boy, at 18 years of age, passed away, we moved into a condo on Central Park West, living on the 20th floor with no dogs. Question #14: Any future plans or changes foreseen in your Dachshund involvement? CAB: Now that I am only accepting one or two judging assignments a year John and I have now become “Travel Junkies”, experiencing what the world outside has to offer... people, places, things. Try it sometime! We judged a show in China and are planning another one soon.

ANSWER: What the two of us owe to our breed cannot be measured. It has given us a great deal of fun and satisfaction. So many life-long friendships, as well as so many wonderful invitations to judge dogs in foreign countries, like Japan, China, Australia, England, and Canada; establishing friendships and being able to see other examples of the breed in foreign countries...many with ties to our blood lines. A little something to remember from Charles: “Every dog is different. They need to be groomed differently, handled and shown differently, and a close rapport developed with each to get the most out of the partnership in the ring”. “We cannot close any interview about Dachshunds without expressing our gratitude

Question #15: What did you get out of being so active within the Dachshund world and organizations?

OTCh Ripley The Rest of the Story

This is the continuation of Ripley’s saga which first appeared in the December 2007 issue of Weaves and Retrieves. Now for the rest of the story …. When Ripley came to live with us in 2003, who would have ever guessed the amount of joy, love, excitement, frustration, and hair-pulling moments we would share as we travelled along this competitive journey. When I started training Ripley, I told my trainer, “I think I can put a CGC on him!” Not knowing what dachshunds are capable of, I thought this would be an honorable goal for him to achieve! As I continued working with him on the basic skills, I soon realized that he was extremely bright, a quick learner and loved the game of obedience! “Hmmmmm, maybe I have something here,” I thought! Ripley quickly achieved the CGC and the Therapy Dog International certificates with ease. Meanwhile, I was training a young lab for competitive obedience. Since Ripley always wanted to go with me when we trained, I figured I would “play train” with him too! Oh my! Ripley just amazed me with his eagerness and acceptance of the detailoriented training that we did each time! It was as though he was saying, “Send me in coach! I can do it!” Ripley earned the Novice, Open and Utility titles in 2.5 years. Wow!! I was hooked on showing a small dog! Rip made competition so much fun. But I noticed there was something different in the reception I received from the judge when entering the ring with a lab vs a miniature dachshund. I was determined to show the judges that dachshunds are indeed competitive and not just for “entertainment value” or “OTCh fodder”! As Ripley and I continued to show in obedience, people started to take notice of him. He was proving himself to be quite the competitor, winning several large utility all-breed classes. I called my trainer, Chris Elliott, just beaming about our success! She said to stay focused and work in brackets of ten so the trail to the OTCh isn’t so daunting. BOY WAS SHE RIGHT!!! Ripley earned ALL the OTCh points and the three required wins in all-breed trials! Ripley and I continued to chip away at the points by competing in the utility class. Every so often he would earn a big chunk of points which further spurred us on. Once we hit the 50 point mark, we started competing in both the open and utility classes. By now, inconsistency had crept into our performances. I was trying everything to repair our exercise holes but no sooner would I fix one challenge when 2 more challenges would surface. When Ripley was “on,” he was so impressive! But he was a bobblehead when it came to focus!!! I can’t tell you how many utility signals he missed by looking away just as I gave the signal only to have him look back at me WAITING for the signal. AARRGGHH!!!

Inconsistency became the bain of our existence in the obedience ring. In 2010, a judge even told me that she thought it was time to retire Ripley!! I really gave it some thought. Yes, this sport is challenging on so many levels, but the one thing I did not want to do was put pressure on Ripley to perform at such a demanding level when he was mentally finished. After talking with Chris and other competitors, I decided to take a break from competition. This decision turned out to be the best thing for both of us! During our 6 month hiatus, Ripley starred in two more commercials and modeled for a Christmas greeting card. We dabbled with learning some agility, though never competing, while continuing to visit with the soldiers and their families at Womack Army Hospital at Ft. Bragg, NC. His love of people was reflected on the smiling faces of those he touched. In 2011, we decided to come back to obedience and give it another try. Ripley was rearing to go! He took 4th place in a large Utility B class under judge Stephen Pool!!! RIPLEY WAS BACK!!! Rip quickly acquired more OTCh points inching us closer and closer to that elusive goal. But more importantly, Ripley gained the confidence which allowed him to be successful in the ring. Then in 2012, we were sitting on 97 OTCh points. At this point, I could ‘feel’ the pressure mounting! Friends and fellow competitors would ask, “how close are you?” I almost didn’t want to reveal just how close we were because verbalizing it seemed to play with my mind. Then just as quickly as he was back, he soon fell apart again. I think I was part of the breakdown because I was not my normal self with him. Ripley decided that he didn’t need me in the ring because he could do all the exercises by himself!! Plus, he put his own personal spin on the exercises by deciding which jump to take, which article he liked, etc. Of course, he never did any of this in training! Ripley went almost a year without qualifying in the obedience ring. I thought we were finished. I told myself that what Ripley and I had achieved was impressive by anyone’s standards and to be happy with the impact we made. I began to question myself as a trainer because the qualifying drought had been so long. I had a friend even show him to see if that would make a difference. Finally, in July 2013 I asked my trainer, Chris to take him for a week. I wanted her to assess him to see if he really is finished with obedience. At the end of the week, she said, “Roberta, Ripley is NOT finished! Treat your training time the same as a trial!” “He needs to know that you are the same both in training and in trialing.” So that is exactly what I did! I treated our training sessions exactly like a trial, only correcting him for NQ-able errors. At first, Ripley made MANY errors in training because this was not how we had been conducting our training sessions in the past! But in short order, he started making fewer and fewer errors. Then I noticed that he was getting more and more excited with each exercise because Ripley knew what to expect from me! Finally, it was time to test the waters with another obedience trial.

September 21, 2013, we entered the St. James Kennel Club trials in Lynchburg, VA because they were offering a 3-trial weekend. On Saturday morning, Rip was performing quite well, qualifying and taking 2nd place under Betsy Horn-Humer which resulted in 2 more OTCh points!! Now we are sitting on 99 points! The buzz at the trial was electrifying! We were ready for the afternoon trial with Ted McCall judging. We entered the ring and started the class. Each exercise was flowing smoothly. Then we came to the directed jumping exercise. First go out and jump - lovely! Second go out - lovely! Sent him to the left jump, he is going directly for it when all of a sudden he bypasses the jump! Oh No!! I was surprised so I scolded him and TOLD him to take the jump, which he did. So that ended it for the day. But I got in a correction! My hope was that it would make an impact the following day. On Sunday, Betsy Horn-Humer was judging Utility B again. Ripley was the last dog in the ring. We had order #1 which meant that directed jumping would be the last exercise. As I watched the other exhibitors show, I could feel the mounting anticipation! Finally, it was our turn. I had a talk with myself beforehand that I was going to STAY IN THE MOMENT – STAY IN EACH EXERCISE. Ripley and I entered the ring, I took off the leash, asked Ripley for a hand touch and then set up for signals, which he did beautifully! Next was articles, I scented the first article and as I was putting it on the judge’s clipboard I noticed that my hand was shaking. I mentally scolded myself, “NO! you stay FOCUSED and IN THE MOMENT!” He did each article successfully. As we continued to move through each exercise,

Ripley was confidently doing his job. Finally, we got to directed jumping. I marked him, took a breath, then sent him on the first go out. Beautiful! He took the first jump and hit his front! OK, now for the second go out ... took a breath, marked him, then sent him. He went full distance, turned, sat and looked at me. I took another breath, paused, then sent him to the left jump as I continued to look at the jump. He immediately took off! When he took the jump ... the tears started to flow!!!! I couldn't even see if he had fronted! BUT WE QUALIFIED!!!! After “exercise finished” I immediately bent down, gave him a HUGE kiss on the head, stood up and he immediately jumped into my arms. I squeezed him tight then put him right down as Betsy was coming towards me with her hand outstretched. She said, "Congratulations, you qualified!!” She had a big smile on her face! The room erupted! It had been so quiet during our run. Ripley took first place earning 4 more OTCh points! More than enough for the OBEDIENCE TRIAL CHAMPIONSHIP! This goal has been a dream of mine for so long. Ripley showed me 6 years ago that he was indeed something very special. I could not have achieved this goal if it were not for some very special people that helped us, guided us, prodded us, encouraged us, bolstered us, and laughed with me. Instrumental is Chris Elliott. She is the person that started me on the path with Ripley. Her advice to me, “Just train him like a dog – not a HOUND!” That has always stuck with me! Her expert training guidance always kept me honest in my training approach with Ripley. She also taught me to have a discriminating eye for detail (thanks Chris!) Ripley has been invited to the NOI 4 times. He is invited to attend the 2014 AKC National Obedience Championship in March. We will be attending proudly representing the miniature dachshunds as OTCH Ripley’s Believe It or Not UDX OM2 VER ME! And to think, when I first started to train Ripley, I said, “I think I can get a CGC on him!”!

Thanks for publishing that great article on hemangiosarcoma (HSA) in the Autumn, 2013 issue of the Newsletter submitted by Charlotte Borghardt, DCA Health and Welfare Committee. This was reprinted from Purina who worked in conjunction with DCA members and the researchers prior to publication of their Purina Pro Plan Dachshund Update issue Spring, 2013. They also made sure pre-publication copies of their article were made available on-site to those who attended the Annual Specialty this past spring. The Purina reporters spent many hours interviewing us by phone and online, making sure of the accuracy of the article prior to publication of this very important and updated piece. The article in its entirety may be found on the Health and Welfare Trust Fund website, and also may be obtained from me by email at my address, cliffhanger@comporium.net, with their permission to cross post and republish with proper credits given to Purina.

Hi Members and Subscribers!

There are plenty of articles in this issue that should interest all of you. Thank you to our contributors for writing the articles for DCA! And thank you again to our advertisers. The DCA newsletter is also published on the ISSUU website a month after our printed publication is mailed. Access is free to anyone, not just members and subscribers. (The current URL is always listed on page 4 of the newsletter http://issuu.com/dachshundclubofamerica/docs/dca _autumn2013) So...for those advertisers who want EVERYONE to see their dachshunds and their awesome accomplishments, this newsletter is quite the deal! The design and layout of your ad is also included in the ad cost. Although we have rehashed this topic many times, there still seems to be some confusion on receiving the magazine 3rd class (bulk mailing) versus 1st class delivery. Your yearly membership dues, $50, include mailing the newsletter 3rd class. The Post Office will not guarantee 3rd class delivery. The club cannot replace undelivered magazine unless we mail them 1st Class because they contain advertising (Post Office rule). Therefore, if you want another magazine, you must pay for the mailing costs $5.60. However, by sending the extra $15 in

Make sure you read about the proposed changes in our breed standard on pages 34-35. The DCA membership will vote on these changes in the spring! Lynne

Whelping Box Ads are only $10 per ad and can be e-mailed to the editor shortly before publication. Litter whelped August, 2013

Letters to and from the editor

with your dues, your magazines will be mailed 1st Class and delivery is guaranteed. You will also receive the magazine within 3-4 days of publication, versus the 2-3 weeks it takes mailing it 3rd Class. Please e-mail or call me if you have any questions about this policy. Again, back to the Animal Rights issues and the rules and regulations. PLEASE be proactive in fighting these unnecessary laws at all levels of our government. Be aware of local laws that will impact you as a breeder and owner! AKC lists legislative alerts by month on their site: http://www.akc.org/news/sections/legislative_alerts.cfm These are some updates and clarifications on the APHIS/USDA regulations. The following statement seems straight forward, but please check with your local authorities on this. “If all your transactions are face-to-face, no matter what the purpose is, or the number of females you have, you do not need a USDA license.” Check out the information via these webinars on the APHIS/USDA rules: http://www.saova.org/news/APHIS/USDA_WEBINAR_ NOVEMBER.14.2013.pdf http://www.saova.org/news/APHIS/USDA_WEBINAR_ NOVEMBER.21.2013.pdf http://www.saova.org/news/APHIS/USDA_WEBINAR_ DECEMBER.5.2013.pdf


Harvest Moon Classic 2013 Together Again By Patricia Nance

T

he 2nd Annual Harvest Moon Classic events were held October 4-13 at the Northern Illinois Beagle Club in Roscoe, Illinois. Sponsored by the Badger, Minnesota, Great Lakes, and Madison Area Dachshund Clubs, there were eight licensed field trials and two earthdog tests in the span of 10 days! Officiating as Chairmen and Secretaries were: Shawn Nies and Pam Voelz for Badger, Carolyn Casoria and Kathy Johnson for Minnesota, Cheri Faust and Larry Gohlke for Great Lakes, and Cheri Faust and Larry Gohlke for Madison Area. Combined, the judging panels were comprised of 21 judges from 11 states, while exhibitors hailed from 18 states! We enjoyed a total of 674 field trial entries for an average of 84 entries per trial! The lowest entry was 71 and the highest 108. High entry in both the Open Dog and Open Bitch classes was 33 with an average of 21 and 28, respectively! Five Dogs and five Bitches became Field Champions. One Dog and one Bitch became Dual Champions.

The largest entries in Field Champion Dogs and Field Champion Bitches also matched - 23, with averages of 18 and 17. Phil & Sherry Ruggieri’s elder statesman Auggie SW led the pack of FCDs with six placements, including two firsts, three seconds, and a third in the eight trials! Charlie & Kate Snider’s Hunter ML had four placements. Mary Powell’s Jacoby MW had three. Stan Knoll’s Oslo SL placed three times with two firsts and a second. Scott Davidson’s Vimy SW had three placements with two 1sts and a 4th. A total of 20 different Field Champion Dogs took home the 40 ribbons offered at this event. The winningest FCB of the Classic was also owned by Sherry and Phil Ruggieri! Their redoubtable young eastern European import Niya SW earned two firsts, three seconds, and two NBQs in the 8 trials! Shawn Nies’ Gypsy SW had three placements including two firsts. Shawn’s Pixie SW, Laura Knoll’s Seiko SL and Laurel Whistance-Smith’s Stanze SW all had three placements with a win.

MW had a third, two fourths, and an NBQ. 18 different Field Champion Bitches won the 39 ribbons awarded (one 4th place was withheld). The Minnesota Dachshund Club’s morning earthdog test had 38 entries with 27 starters and 9 Qualifiers! The afternoon test had 33 entries, 24 starters and 9 Qualifiers! 1 JE, 1 SE, 1 ME, 1 EE and 1 EE2 titles were earned. Lois Ballard conducted a mid-week tracking seminar with opportunities for certification and Pam Bethke evaluated entries in the Canine Good Citizen test. Raffles raised a $907 donation for beagle club maintenance! There was a potluck Wild Thing dinner on Thursday, Phil and Sherry Ruggieri hosted a Farewell Pizza Party on the second Saturday, and some brilliant bonfires lit the night skies. Roasted wienies? Toasted marshmallows? Melted S’mores? Popping Christmas lights? Bonfire Frisbee? Brushbeater effigy? Moon music? Midnight rides? Masterful comedians? “It was not an end to the fun when the field trial was done!”!


I went to get my young dogs some experience in the field and introduce them to bunnies. Reconnecting with old friends was great, too, but I had forgotten just how thrilling it is to see these awesome dogs doing what they love. Deneice Van Hook, IL A long time in one location made it easy to “camp” with friends. It was like a group of gypsies having fun during the day and campfires at night! We were able to visit with folks from all over who share a passion for dogs “working” at a field trial. Sherry Ruggieri, NJ I go to Roscoe to have my dogs judged by experienced, long time judges on actual rabbits. It helps me evaluate my dogs and their ability. It tells me if I am on the right track in my breeding program. Julie Couch., OR They were THE most organized trials I have been to. And as a new judge I was grateful for the thought put into the judges panel. I was paired with wonderful people who all shared parts of their brain with me that I will use in the future. Lori Isaacson, TX I had trouble with my tent in the rain but Bill Dyer, Stan Knoll, and Shawn Nies helped me get dried out and stay dry. I enjoyed the camaraderie at the bonfires. Dinner out with new people was wonderful. I had the best time! Denise Hilbert, WI

The warmth and the competition were so enjoyable. It was SPECIAL because of the people. They have that deep love for the sport and they made me feel like I was family. And they know how to have FUN. We will be back!!! Gloria LaTour, TX Well thought out and flawlessly run, the Harvest Moon Classic is at the top of my priority list. It is fun from sun up to sun down, no other event has given me so much. Dachshund comradeship. I can’t explain how much. Harvest Moon means to me. It ROCKS! Pam Bethke, SD The Minnesota Dachshund Club put on two field trials and two earthdog tests. Carolyn Casoria and I had total responsibility of those events with very little support from MDC. We were exhausted and both of us went home earlier than planned. People are generally grateful but I think few know how much. work it takes to do this. I am not sure how I feel about the event for next year. This is a club issue and not meant to reflect on the HMC. I just wanted to share something from an operations perspective. Kathleen Johnson, MN Wednesday morning I had the pleasure of working with quite a few dogs and handlers to introduce them to the sport of AKC Tracking. Everyone left with a new-found appreciation for tracking and their dog’s scenting abilities. Lois Ballard, WI I appreciate the great friendship that has developed between our Dachshund clubs and the Northern Illinois Beagle Club. And the bond continues to grow. We need each. other for our sport to continue in such. fabulous style. Debby McNamara, WI

It is a big undertaking and I am grateful to those who work hard to put it on. Most particularly to Cheri Faust as it is her baby and she starts many months ahead. I like to say that this event runs “like a well-oiled machine” because it does. Shawn Nies did an awesome job sewing to provide some lovely prizes. She made the wonderful pillow that I won for Absolute! Andi Baltes, WI I was feeling discouraged at field trials. I don’t like when people bad-mouth each. other. I started rodeoing with teens my own age and did not go to any trials for 1.5 years. My mother insisted that I attend Harvest Moon Classic and there, it hit me, this is what field trials are all about. Fun, good working dogs, and friends supporting and loving each. other no matter what. They are the best trials I have been to in over 10 years of trialing. I hope to be there next year! Laura Knoll, MS Mostly, I judge beagles, bassets and Dachshunds to see the hound work, there’s good and bad in all. I want to see a dog, his nose and his brain all come together to move the track as far as possible. The biggest enjoyment I get at the Harvest Moon Classic is seeing the consistency of the good ones and the light come on for the dogs that maybe don’t get the work the other hounds get. 10 days long with eight trials, lots of rabbits with practice time after a prompt run trial, seeing many people helping the new people and hounds, that’s what I feel trialing is really about.

Delegate’s Report for September 10, 2013 Meeting Held in Newark, NJ submitted by Larry Sorenson, DCA AKC Representative This is the highlights of the Delegates’ Meeting; a complete set of Delegates’ Meeting Minutes is located at: http://images.akc.org/pdf/delegate_ minutes/September_2013.pdf Highlights from the September 10, 2013 Delegate Meeting: This is the meeting in which the Standing Committee members are elected. All the committee election results are on the AKC website listed above. Your delegate was re-elected to the Parent Club Committee and re-appointed as the Chair of the Parent Club of Excellence Committee. There was a vote on the proposed amendment to Chapter 4, Section 2 - Approval of Judges’ Panels and Premium Lists of the Rules Applying to Dog Shows, which eliminates the different time frames for sending out premium lists. The amendment was brought forward by the Delegate Dog Show Rules Committee and approved by the AKC Board of Directors. There were two-thirds in the affirmative and the amendment was adopted. Please note the requirement to mail by first class mail was removed. This amendment changed the Rules Applying to Dogs Shows as follows: LLS Chapter 4: Section 2. Premium list and entry forms must be printed and sent to prospective exhibitors at least five weeks prior to the closing date for entries of show. Four copies of the premium list must be sent to The American Kennel Club at the time of distribution. The Executive Secretary read a proposed amendment is to Chapter 3, Section 22 - Dog Show Classifications of the Rules Applying to Dog Shows This amendment would provide for a Bred-by-Exhibitor Class for each sex of each Miscellaneous Class breed, consistent with the requirements as currently defined in Section 8. The amendment was brought forward by Staff and approved by the AKC Board of Directors. It will be published in two issues of the online AKC Gazette and the Delegates will be asked to vote on it at the December 2013 meeting. To be voted on at the December meeting. LLS AKC Financial report: Mr. Farnsworth gave a long report which basically said the AKC is doing better due to the increase in Dachshund Club of America

Winter, 2013

registration fees and a reduction in staff. The investments are still doing well. Staff reductions are being felt by AKC customers. The complete report is on the website above. LLS The Chair called on Alan Kalter, to give you Delegates news about AKC CAR. Mr. Kalter spoke as follows: As I am sure all of you are aware, AKC Companion Animal Recovery or AKC CAR as we know it, has been a terrific contributor to dogs and to the people who cherish those dogs. Our mission is to ensure their safety, protect them and re-home them should they be lost, and from a financial standpoint, also as a contributor to the AKC. We believe that there is a significant upside to AKC CAR and the CAR board and staff are working diligently to leverage every asset we have to assure that that our mission is accomplished - we continue to protect more dogs and cats and other pets. We have the ability to generate the revenue that is going to allow us to do that, and through the fund we can contribute to worthy causes and to support the American Kennel Club. In the quest to bring to increase the ability of CAR to be successful, there is some news we have to share with you today that we are quite excited about. I want to introduce Tom Sharp, who is the CEO of CAR, to talk to you about that. AKC Companion Animal Recovery (microchip) is a very bright AKC program. It has consistently made money and has reunited five million lost pets with their families and homes. Their new name and tag line will be AKC Reunite – the way back home. This more correctly describes their mission and what they do so very well. LLS Mr. Tom Sharpe and Ms. Harsa project report: And I’m here to share with you an exciting way our AKC Community can help. Let’s donate AKC Pet Disaster Relief trailers to communities in need. As an AKC Community, we can build a network that equips our hometowns with the essential animal sheltering resources that are needed the first critical hours after a disaster. At the June Delegate Meeting, many of you had the opportunity to tour an AKC Pet Disaster Relief trailer. You saw a 16- foot trailer stocked with the necessary, nonperishable supplies required to temporarily shelter pets in an emergency situation. You saw wire crates stacked on rolling carts for quick and easy set-up along with administration and maintenance supplies. You saw pet care essentials like leashes, bowls, and AKC CAR (now AKC Reunite!) microchips and scanners. There was a generator, emergency lighting, fans and so, so much more. And, due to our partnership with North Carolina State Animal Response Team, training continued on next page...


AKC News continued from page 71... materials will also be available on the how-to’s of AKC Pet Disaster Relief. Training ranges from how to set up an emergency pet shelter, to how to check in pets, to how-to train and mobilize volunteers, to how to decontaminate and replenish the trailer after it is deployed. AKC Pet Disaster Relief trailers provide local Emergency Management the immediate capability of providing a safe, temporary home-base animal shelter. Here, you can see just how easy it is to set up AKC Pet Disaster Relief. Emergency Management drove the trailer to the school, lined the hallways in protective plastic, placed a runner, rolled in the crates, and staged the supplies. In minimal time the pop-up pet shelter was ready to safely shelter pets. After the shelter is set up, it is equipped to help shelter pets in two different ways. It can be used as Co-location Shelter that can keep animals and their human companions together in a safe place as they literally weather a storm. People are sheltered in a dedicated area, like a school gymnasium, and their pets are crated on-site in a specific area, like a hallway. Pet owners are directly responsible for their pet’s care. Or, AKC Pet Disaster Relief can be used to create temporary Lost-and-Found shelters for displaced pets. These temporary shelters become pop-up reunion centers for families to look for, and be reunited with, their lost pets. Here is an actual quote from a pet owner that found her dog at a pop-up Lost-and-Found shelter after the devastating tornado that ripped through Moore, Oklahoma in May: “It’s just relief. I don’t care about the house. I don’t care about anything else now. We’re okay. We’re all alive. We have our family, our dog. We’re going to be okay.” We can be a part of this. We can lead the way to better sheltering solutions for pets during desperate times. We can keep families together. We can save lives. We can do all of this with your help. To do this, we are asking all Clubs to help raise a portion of the funds needed to provide these trailers. Donations will be made through the AKC Reunite Canine Support and Relief Fund and are tax deductible. Each fully stocked and delivered trailer costs $22,000, and to support this program, AKC Reunite has allocated a quarter of a million dollars over the next two years to help with your Club’s fundraising efforts to supply trailers to our nation’s communities in need. With your Clubs’ financial support of at least $1,000, your Club will be recognized in a big way. Similar to a NASCAR car sponsorship, your Club’s logo will appear on the side of the trailer you sponsor. The more your Club can contribute, the larger your Club’s logo will be on the trailer to showcase your Club as the champion of all pets for all in the community to see. All of us on the AKC Pet Disaster Relief project thank you for your early enthusiasm and contributions. It is truly wonderful. Building on this momentum, we are looking into national sponsorships for AKC Pet Disaster Relief, and welcome you to reach out to potential regional sponsors as well. There is a packet of materials for you to pick up as you leave today that will give you all the particulars of AKC Pet Disaster Relief fundraising. As a local

Club, you have a tremendous opportunity to make a very immediate difference in your community. Your club, or even better- a network of clubs in your area - can meet with your local Emergency Management team and introduce AKC Pet Disaster Relief. You can show how these trailers will help simplify their legally required planning to accommodate pets during disasters and share your goal of donating a trailer to them. By demonstrating your concern for the people in your community and their pets, your Club will build meaningful grassroots partnerships. Together, you can even plan ways your Club and Emergency Management can showcase AKC Pet Disaster Relief starting with a public presentation of the trailer to your local community. You can also put the trailer out on display at events throughout the year, like Responsible Dog Ownership Day, county fairs, parades, festivals and more. As local emergency preparedness for pets is enhanced, your Club will garner very positive visibility and support. Also in the packet that you pick up after this session, there is a Tip Sheet on how to engage your local Emergency Management and a program brochure to help you present AKC Pet Disaster Relief trailers to your community. AKC Pet Disaster Relief trailers are a great, wonderful project. Details need to be worked out concerning maintaining the trailers and the staffing during a disaster. It is a very worthy program. I know we will be hearing and seeing more about this in the future.
