Stephany Monteleone and CoCo: I love to track! I read a book on dog tracking when I was a young girl, and really wanted to do it, but living in a city, didn’t think it was possible. So I spent most of my energies in breeding and showing Silky Terriers until the mid 90’s when I retired from it, started showing Hackney ponies, and turned to doing companion events with my Lab. Now, I love doing everything with my Dachshunds, Obedience, Rally, Agility, Earthdog, Field trials, Barn hunt, etc., but especially Tracking! I still love Conformation, all my Dachshunds are Champions, but I let a wonderful handler do that part now. 2

The Shine On Study was conceived to reduce the mortality and the suffering caused by canine hemangiosarcoma. I personally encourage all of my dachshund friends reading this, especially those who have had dogs die from the dreaded hemangiosarcoma, help by providing financial support. This financial support is needed to expand and accelerate recruitment and progress. You can do so by contacting Jaime Modiano at modiano@umn.edu or by following this link to the Dr. Modiano Oncology Research Fund.

Coco walked into my house at about 11 weeks old and took over! She had to be first in everything! She was a little wild child! On top of everything, into everything, she knew no boundaries! She went wherever she wanted to, but wasn’t destructive, or have bad intentions, just so inquisitive. She was very smart too, a quick and energetic learner. I started her out in Rally where she quickly earned as far as Rally Advanced before I quit that and turned to Obedience.

Dachshunds love to hunt whether it is live game, a favorite toy, a crumb on the floor or the local feral cat. But you don’t have to move to the country or endanger the local feline population to hunt. While walking through your own neighborhood, let your dog’s nose tell you what’s about. Rats (Rattus norveigicus) are the most common quarry in urban settings. Since rats are usually nocturnal, doing most of their moving and feeding at night, they can be hard to spot in daylight. By identifying the entrances to the colony’s living quarters, often a large crack in a sidewalk or a notable crevice by a storm drain, you can return after dusk with your dog on lead and perhaps catch one.

Letters to and from the editor Hi Members and Subscribers, Hopefully spring is here! It’s been a long hard year for everyone and I hope we can see the light at the end of the pandemic tunnel. Kudos to those show secretaries and chairs who have taken on the big task of putting on as safe as possible specialties. Our Nationals will be held shortly and I’m sure it will be successful. Please follow all safety precautions that the clubs have put in place so everyone will remain healthy. We will be combining the summer and autumn issues of the newsletter again this year. Because of how the normal deadlines fall, moving the deadline to July 1st for the combined issues will be easier and more timely for everyone to get results in from the Nationals. Hopefully some more ads, too!! Congrats to Stephany Monteleone and CoCo for the wonderful accomplishment of achieving her triple championship! See the story on page 20. Make sure everyone reads the article on the updates on hemangiosarcoma in this issue - lots of new research and positive new information! Thank you again to all the contributors and advertisers for supporting the newsletter!

Eileen R. Honigman passed away on December 19th, 2020. She was a dachshund owner and lover for sixty-nine years and longstanding member of the DCA. Eileen and her husband, Dr. Arnold Honigman, bought their first doxie in the 1950s and were active members of the Connecticut Yankee Dachshund Club. After many loving dachshunds thereafter, she met Sally T. Rubin in the 1990s and purchased Aro-Hill Sir Bentley who became a Champion and was shown at Westminster Dog Show, handled by Art Hounslea. Eileen’s legacy and love for this breed is carried on by her children and grandchildren who own dachshunds of their own. Her family will always remember her with a dachshund sitting in her lap.

concerning the health and welfare of Dachshunds. The research assistance is not restricted to projects that directly include Dachshunds but can be expanded to other canine research programs that affect the Dachshund breed. Every year potential research projects conducted by well-known organizations such as the AKC Canine Health Foundation and the Morris Animal Foundation, are evaluated by the Trustees to determine where best to invest our research dollars to help our breed. Over the last several years DCA H&WT funds have been used to fund research in Intervertebral Disk Disease and Hemangiosarcoma. This year we contributed funds for research in Developing a Prognostic Test for Neural Injuries and New Treatments for Cushing’s Disease. We receive periodic updates from the researchers and several of these reports are shown below. The DCA H&W Trust is funded primarily through contributions from individuals and groups as well as a $2000 annual contribution from DCA. In addition, we receive funding through the Amazon Smile program. This program allows individuals to donate a small percentage of purchases made through Amazon to a charity of their choice at no cost to the individual. Amazon Smile is available at smile.amazon.com on your web browser and can

also be activated in the Amazon Shopping apps for iOS and Android. Simply search for “Dachshund Club of America Health & Welfare Trust Fund” in the enrollment process to select your charity. You shop as you normally would, knowing you’re helping make a difference for the breed.

The Purina Parent Club Partnership The Dachshund Club of America participates in the Purina Parent Club Partnership (PPCP) Program. This program allows DCA to earn funding based on Purina Pro Plan dog food receipt submissions by Pro Club members. This funding goes to DCA, not the Health and Welfare Trust. Pro Club members submit receipts from bags of participating Purina dog foods and accumulate points as part of the Pro Club Program. In addition to earning rewards for the submitting individual, Purina donates an additional 10% of the annual earnings and splits it between the DCA and the AKC Canine Health Foundation. One half is issued directly to the Canine Health Foundation to support research grants. The other half is issued to DCA for use in the support of canine health research, education and/or rescue efforts. In order to participate, Purina Pro Club


members must individually declare their participation in the program and identify that DCA will receive their Purina Points. Members may call the Purina Pro Club toll-free number at 1-877-PRO-CLUB (1-877-776-2582) from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST, Monday through Friday, or register on the Pro Club website PurinaProClub.com

What YOU Can Do To Support The Health And Welfare Of Dachshunds: 1. If you shop on Amazon, make sure you use Smile.Amazon.com and designate Dachshund Club of America Health and Welfare Trust as your charity of choice. 2. If you are a Purina Pro Club member, designate DCA as your recipient for the Parent Club Partnership We hope you will continue to support our Dachshund Health and Welfare efforts.

Subject: Study Sponsor Thank You Letter

1. A progress report for the study DCA is sponsoring, D17CA-059 Curbing Tumor Growth and Chemotherapy Resistance in Canine Hemangiosarcoma at the University of Minnesota. 2. A progress report for the new study DCA is sponsoring, D20CA-031 Developing a Prognostic Test for Neural Injuries at North Carolina State University. 3. A thank you note from the PI, Dr. Karin Sanders for study D21CA-405, Looking for New Treatments for Cushing’s Disease at Utrecht University. The last attachment is a picture of Dr. Sanders working on the project in the lab (see below).

Dear Dachshund Club of American Health and Welfare Trust Fund, I was honored to hear that your organization has donated to our Morris Animal Foundation-funded project “Canine Pituitary Organoids: CaPitO”. I am very excited about this project and it’s great to see that this feeling is shared by your organization. What I hope to achieve with the CaPitO project is to find new tumortargeted treatment options for dogs with pituitary-dependent hypercortisolism (PDH), also known as Cushing’s disease. With a prevalence of 1 in 400, PDH is one of the most common endocrine disorders in dogs. Most dogs with PDH are treated medically with a steroidogenesis inhibitor. Although this can inhibit the clinical signs, it does not affect the pituitary tumor itself which can therefore keep on growing.

I’ve attached a few things to this email for you.

Please feel free to share these! Again, thank you for your generous support. I’ll be in touch with more reports for these studies as I receive them, but don’t hesitate to reach out. Lydia McPeek lmcpeek@morrisanimalfoundation.org

We have established a three-dimensional system to grow miniature canine pituitary tumors in the lab, which we call organoids. These organoids are grown from stem cells, and can be regarded as avatars of the primary tumor. I will culture pituitary tumors from dogs with PDH that are treated with pituitary surgery at our University Clinic in Utrecht. I will characterize these CaPitOs to see which treatment targets are expressed, and subsequently test 10 different drugs that potentially inhibit both pituitary tumor growth and hormone production. Hopefully, we will find promising drugs to improve the lives of dogs with PDH. Many thanks for your support and best wishes for 2021! Yours sincerely, Dr. Karin Sanders

HEMANGIOSARCOMA

Update By Diane Young McCormack

Recently I had a reason to communicate with Dr. Jaime Modiano, Director, Animal Cancer Care and Research Program at the College of Veterinary Medicine and Masonic Cancer Center at the University of Minnesota. Another standard longhaired dachshund had died from this dreaded disease. Andy, only 8 years old, belonged to one of my dearest friends. A year and a half ago, he had his spleen removed when a nodule was detected. It was biopsied and the test came back that it was not hemangiosarcoma. Playful and frisky in his backyard Monday morning… and gone Tuesday afternoon. And this time it was a tumor behind his heart that was hemangiosarcoma. His litter mate, Dreamer, died a year ago – also from hemangiosarcoma. The surviving littermate is Cary, dam to my Karma. Red flags went up so I reached out to Dr. Modiano. (He has given me permission to reprint any and all of our communications.) In my email to him, I asked him if any progress has been made, what does he need to find the marker, and my concern over the fact that Spirit was the grandfather to these brothers, knowing that I have over 20 vials of Spirit sperm stored. I know many breeders, who have lost dogs to hemangiosarcoma from either a first or second generation sire or dam, share my same concerns about the use of their sperm. The program vision is called – “TO CREATE A WORLD WHERE WE NO LONGER FEAR CANCER.” His email reply to me: The lab forwarded me your email. Thank you for reaching out. I am sorry to hear that you and your friends have lost dogs to hemangiosarcoma. This is a dreadful disease and it changes the way we perceive our relationship with our dogs. I think you can relate to why our program vision is “to create a world where we no longer fear cancer.” That said, we base our recommendations on data – and there are no data to definitively answer your question. Anybody who tells you otherwise is selling something. It was originally easy for people to assign a “genetic” or more appropriately a heritable risk to hemangiosarcoma because many papers documented greater prevalence of the disease in certain breeds when it was initially recognized, especially German Shepherd Dogs. The first papers came from Europe, and similar patterns were recognized soon thereafter in the US. After German Shepherd Dogs, a pattern was recognized in Golden Retrievers and then in many other breeds. As people looked at these hospital-based cases, the inadvertent introduction of bias (including recognition bias) was not considered. Even as far back as 1980, the breed-related risk was much lower (although some breed influence was still detectable) when larger datasets were analyzed. But by around 2010 or so, hemangiosarcoma was an “area of great concern” for more than 40 breed clubs. And yet, no one has truly been able to document strong heritability for this disease in any breed. Again, recognition bias is a huge problem in this analysis. Veterinarians are quick to point to hemangiosarcoma as a top differential diagnosis for a “down” Golden (and absent confirmation, the diagnosis in the record would be “hemangiosarcoma”), whereas a down Dachshund would get a likely diagnosis of IVDD. Without the resources to follow through and to educate, it is challenging to overcome this recognition bias. Hemangiosarcoma became “a thing” for breeds once people started realizing dogs were dying from this disease and not from other presumed things. That doesn”t mean the disease became more

Dachshund Club of America Spring 2021

prevalent in the past 20 years (except to the extent that we continue to extend the longevity of our dogs). It just means we are now more aware of its existence as a disease of dogs and not only as a disease of German Shepherds and Goldens. The closest anyone has come to looking at heritability is the work we did with Kerstin and Matthew looking at a genome-wide association study in Goldens. What we found is that there were 2 regions (actually more, but we reported on the two most significant regions in that paper) that were associated with a diagnosis of hemangiosarcoma. However, there was no evidence that these regions of DNA segregated by families (the study was not designed or powered to answer that question). It also was unclear whether these regions would similarly show an association with hemangiosarcoma in other breeds. Subsequent data made the group abandon the idea that this should be developed as a test to inform breeding. So, what is the evidence for heritability? Only the fact that there are reports of breed predilection. But as “breed predilection” grows to include more breeds and as the disease is highly prevalent in a large representation of mixed breed dogs, it is reasonable to conclude that this is a disease for which dogs are generally at risk. What is the evidence for this being a sporadic (non-heritable) disease? The median age is 10. Yes, we see it in younger dogs (the youngest I have diagnosed was less than 3 months old), but by and large this is a tumor of aging. Heritable cancers are most often seen in a younger population (pediatric, adolescent, or young adult). It mostly occurs as an isolated disease. In other words, it is not part of a “complex” of tumors. Heritable cancers not only occur in younger individuals, but often manifest as multiple or sequential cancers. That is not the case for hemangiosarcoma. In heritable cancers, pedigrees show increased numbers of affected individuals, often siblings (in the case of dogs, it would be highly prevalent in full sibs or littermates). We see no evidence of shared risk. There are no data to support that having an affected sibling (or parent or offspring) increases the risk of hemangiosarcoma for a dog. There is similarly no evidence for environmental triggers. Our data did not reproduce the North Carolina association with Bartonella. (DYM Note – “Bartonella Bacteria Detected in Hemangiosarcoma Tissues – Spring 2020 DCA Newsletter) Given the importance of independent replication in science, I interpret that as a spurious association. Admittedly, a careful, well designed and controlled epidemiological study to look at possible environmental risk factors has not been done. These studies are incredibly challenging - especially because they tend to be fraught with reporting bias. Nonetheless, there are no obvious geographic, dietary, or lifestyle influences that are associated with hemangiosarcoma. The published data on risk linked to spaying and neutering are rather easily dismissed if you read the papers carefully. The links are artificial and due in large part to poor use of statistics (or overinterpretation of data). With all of that, we are left with the very unsatisfying answer that hemangiosarcoma is a disease for which dogs are at high risk, and as far as we can surmise, it is influenced in large part by aging. We believe that another risk factor is the physiology of vascular turnover in dogs. There are more nuances to our hypothesis linking the events of passing an age where dogs are widely “protected” from cancer and the inherent risk of mutations introduced by the process of cell and organ renewal and turnover. But that is where we fall today. To your question: is there a “marker” for hemangiosarcoma? Well, that depends on what you mean by a “marker.” If you mean, is there a “genetic” marker? The answer is no, and one is not likely to be found. If you mean, can we identify dogs that are at risk for developing the disease? Then the answer is, we have made considerable progress and I would refer you for now to the information about our Shine On study at z.umn.edu/shine. We expect the first paper describing the parameters of the SOS test (Shine On Suspicion) will be submitted for peer review in the next 4-8 weeks. That is the first step towards independent review of the data. We have launched a company that intends to make the test available to veterinary practitioners. The company is in the initial stages of financing (raising capital), and so that has to be done before the test can be provided.


With regard to using Spirit’s sperm for breeding or for research. The decision to use his sperm for breeding is entirely yours, and I think it should be made based on many factors that you know are sound. For example, were his temperament, behavior, conformation, etc. traits that you would consider as valuable for future generations. Did he carry risk factors for other conditions that are known to be heritable in Dachshunds? I would put “cancer risk” very low on that list, since it is something we don’t know - and based on the available evidence, something that at most has a weak influence and is incompletely penetrant. I hope this answers your questions. Thank you for your continued

THE SHINE ON PROJECT HEMANGIOSARCOMA DETECTION TEST The Shine On Study was conceived to reduce the mortality and the suffering caused by canine hemangiosarcoma. The Shine On Study consisted of three phases. • Phase-1: develop and refine a blood test to diagnose hemangiosarcoma. • Phase-2: determine the utility of this test to determine if the disease had returned in a dog that was being treated for hemangiosarcoma. • Phase-3: established the utility of the test to diagnose hemangiosarcoma in the earliest stages, to intervene to prevent the disease in otherwise healthy dogs. In this case, prevention would be achieved using the drug eBAT to kill the cells that create and maintain the tumor and to make the environment inhospitable to tumor growth. The first question asked was, “Does the blood test accurately detect the presence of hemangiosarcoma in dogs?” The answer is an unqualified, “Yes.” Results show that the test accurately identifies dogs in which hemangiosarcoma is present about 90% of the time. The second question asked was, “Can the blood test predict when treatment fails and the disease comes back in a dog that is undergoing treatment?” So far, results suggest the answer to this question is also, “Yes.” The researchers expect to be able to confirm this answer through ongoing analysis of the available data. The third question asked was, “Can the blood test be used to detect the presence of hemangiosarcoma at the earliest stages in otherwise healthy dogs?” In other words, could the researchers identify dogs at high risk of hemangiosarcoma that would benefit from prevention? Again, results to date suggest that the answer to this question is, “Yes.” The study will continue to follow the 209 dogs tested as part of Shine On phase-3 to establish the reliability of the test results, and how often the test would need to be repeated to maximize its utility. But so far, they estimate that the likelihood of a dog that tests

This could be the incredible news all of us are waiting to hear. “negative” to develop hemangiosarcoma over the subsequent 6-month period is less than 1%, whereas more than 90% of dogs with a “positive” test require further evaluation for the presence of disease, and those where hemangiosarcoma is not identifiable would-be candidates for prevention. The final question asked was, “Is eBAT safe, and is it effective for hemangiosarcoma prevention?” Definitively eBAT is remarkably safe. They understand its potential side effects and they are readily manageable. eBAT is also effective at prevention of hemangiosarcoma in laboratory models. The ongoing follow up of dogs at risk that did - or did not - receive eBAT prevention will allow the researchers to confirm the utility eBAT as prevention for hemangiosarcoma. Updates of these results have been disseminated throughout the project to the professional and lay communities alike, at scientific and veterinary meetings, at health seminars held during several National Breed Specialties, and at the AKC Parent Club Meeting in 2019. The project will continue to disseminate results and updates through these venues, as well as through scientific, peer reviewed publications as they complete follow-up for the project.

Curbing Tumor Growth and Chemotherapy Resistance in Canine Hemangiosarcoma Erin Dickerson, PhD, University of Minnesota, D17CA-059 Projected End Date: 04/01/21

Developing a Prognostic Test for Neural Injuries Natasha J. Olby, VetMB, PhD, North Carolina State University, D20CA-031 Project End Date: 08/31/21 Morris Animal Foundation-funded researchers at North Carolina State University are working to develop a rapid bedside test to quickly assess the severity of central nervous system injury in dogs. Neurological emergencies are a common problem in dogs. With limited tools – as well as the added expense of imaging that some owners simply can’t afford – gauging the severity of these cases often is challenging. An inexpensive, rapid test would be a welcome tool for veterinarians as well as owners. Researchers are designing a point-of-care test to measure central nervous system (CNS) structural proteins following injury. Studies show CNS structural proteins can be detected in the blood following injury. The blood levels of these important proteins can be used to quantify severity and help predict recovery. So far, the team has identified an optimal antibody pair needed for the test and are refining their antibody printing technologies to ensure sensitive and specific protein detection for the finished product. Concurrently, the team is collecting and banking blood samples from dogs with spinal cord injuries. All dogs are followed to track their outcomes. The team is on target to reach their goal of 100 dogs needed to validate the test’s performance.

Morris Animal Foundation-funded researchers at the University of Minnesota are looking at new ways to block hemangiosarcoma tumor growth and cancer spread. They are specifically studying propranolol, a drug commonly used to treat certain forms of heart disease as a promising, new treatment for hemangiosarcoma. In laboratory studies, the team found that propranolol inhibits key metabolic pathways in hemangiosarcoma cells, preventing tumor cells from dividing and slowing tumor growth. Further studies in mouse models show propranolol alone inhibits tumor growth and works as well as a combination of propranolol with the chemotherapy drug doxorubicin. While doxorubicin alone also slowed growth, propranolol alone or in combination with doxorubicin worked better. The next step is genetic analysis of tumor samples from the different treatment groups (control, doxorubicin, propranolol and propranolol combined with doxorubicin) to better understand the mechanisms used by propranolol to slow or stop tumor growth. In concurrent studies, the team is studying chemotherapy resistance in hemangiosarcoma cells. So far, they have developed doxorubicin-resistant cell lines and found propranolol sensitizes (increases the effect of) these cell lines to doxorubicin. Further studies are underway to better understand propranolol’s effect on drug-resistant cell lines. Identification of changes induced by propranolol in cell lines and tumor samples may provide clues for additional promising treatments combining propranolol with other FDA-approved drugs.

If successful, an inexpensive test that provides rapid prognosis of a wide range of CNS injuries will give owners and veterinarians crucial information to provide the best care plan for an injured dog. It will help veterinarians and owners understand the severity of the injury during the initial exam, optimizing decision-making and treatment choice tailored for that patient. The test also will be a valuable tool for clinical trials to further study spinal cord disease in dogs and possibly other central nervous system diseases, including encephalitis, head trauma and strokes.

Findings from these studies may help change standard-of-care treatment for canine hemangiosarcoma. Data already is being used to help inform a multi-center clinical trial to determine if propranolol in combination with doxorubicin will improve the overall survival of dogs with hemangiosarcoma compared to doxorubicin alone. If successful, results easily can be translated into a veterinary clinic setting as propranolol is well-tolerated by dogs and can be given orally.

Humanity’s Best Friend Dogs’ highly evolved noses can rapidly detect the SARS-CoV-2 virus By Sonia Fernandez, UC Santa Barbara, CA For some 15,000 years, dogs have been our hunting partners, workmates, helpers and companions. Could they also be our next allies in the fight against COVID-19? According to UC Santa Barbara professor emeritus Tommy Dickey and his collaborator, BioScent researcher Heather Junqueira, they can. And with a review paper published in the Journal of Osteopathic Medicine they have added to a small but growing consensus that trained medical scent dogs can effectively be used for screening individuals who may be infected with the COVID-19 virus. This follows a comprehensive survey of research devoted to the use of trained scent dogs for detecting COVID. “The most striking result is that studies have already demonstrated that dogs can identify people who are COVID-19 positive,” Dickey said of their findings. “Not only

that,” he added, “they can do it non-intrusively, more rapidly and with comparable or possibly better accuracy than our conventional detection tests.” Not surprisingly, the magic lies in canine sense of smell, which gives dogs the ability to detect molecules in tiny concentrations — “one part in a quadrillion compared with one part in one billion for humans,” according to the paper. Add to that other optimizations for smell, such

as a large nasal area and the structure of their noses, which allows inflow through the nostrils and outflow through nasal folds. Further, with 125-300 million olfactory cells and a third of their brains devoted to interpreting odors, dogs are well equipped with the ability to sniff out the volatile organic compounds that indicate the presence of COVID. “The dogs are basically smelling the sweat of the person,” Dickey said of a series of experiments by French and Lebanese researchers testing canines’ capacity to sense COVID infection. Although the virus itself has no odor, metabolic products excreted by COVID-positive individuals through their sweat glands were detected by the 18 dogs selected for the study (16 Belgian malinois, one German shepherd and one Jack Russell terrier) with an accuracy rate of 83100% after only four days of training. True failures, according to the study, could be attributed to “distractive external smells or movements by a TV filming crew.” “One dog twice indicated positive results that could not be confirmed,” Dickey said. “Two weeks continued on page 16...

showing a balance in our fund of $68,159.23. On 8/6/20 our club received the application package to purchase AKC parent club medallions awarded at the AKC National Championship in Florida in December. The package was forwarded to our Treasurer, Ken Levison, for completion and payment. Cheryl reviewed three action items on the correspondence report marked for Board review. An invitation to parent clubs to participate in the AKC Pupdate email series, intended to link new dog owners with the parent club website for educational material. The Board expressed their interest in DCA participation and the Secretary was instructed to forward the information to Fran Colonna & Larry Sorenson as Public Education Chairs. An invitation to parent clubs to offer the AKC BBE Award at their 2021 parent club National. The award is a free litter registration to the BBE winner at no cost to parent clubs. The Board expressed interest in DCA participation and the Corresponding Secretary was directed to apply for this award. Correspondence from DCA member Randy Eltringham requesting permission to use DCAowned artwork from our Illustrated Standard and to digitize the artwork for production of embroidered dachshund items to be made available to the dachshund fancy and the general public. MOTION: A motion was made to deny this request along with an explanation that DCA does not permit prizes other than what DCA offers to be awarded at our National events. MOTION ADOPTED.

Treasurer’s Report: Ken Levison Ken referred to the financial reports he sent out prior to the meeting and reported our club treasury is in decent shape. There are still outstanding expenses coming from our canceled 2020 National specialty.

Membership: Georjan Bridger Georjan reported there was no action to be taken and applicant Sally Eichlin was accepted into membership.

DCA General Information Brochures Update: Sandy Arnold Sandy reported she has been working with Trudy Kawami on brochures currently in our inventory.

MBISS GCHS Rosethorn Globe-Trotter MW X DC Hathor Farm’s Down To The Wire

I love to track! I read a book on dog tracking when I was a young girl, and really wanted to do it, but living in a city, didn’t think it was possible. So I spent most of my energies in breeding and showing Silky Terriers until the mid 90’s when I retired from it, started showing Hackney ponies, and turned to doing companion events with my Lab. Now, I love doing everything with my Dachshunds, Obedience, Rally, Agility, Earthdog, Field trials, Barn hunt, etc., but especially Tracking! I still love Conformation, all my Dachshunds are Champions, but I let a wonderful handler do that part now. Coco is my third mini-wire. I had a half-sister to her, Belle, from breeder Jean Dieden, that I tragically lost way too young, and my oldest girl, Sophie, now 13, from breeders, Marsha Banks & Sally Haas. After my last old Silky passed on, and my Lab was very lonely, I decided to do something I had wanted to do for many years, get a mini-wire Dachshund. My oldest girl, Sophie is now retired. She is an amazing dog that taught me everything about competing in so many sports with Dachshunds and was a wonderful tracking dog, passing two tests but I didn’t feel she’d ever go on to CT because of shyness to strangers. Belle, Coco's half sister, was a rat hunting machine, and so good in many other events, but just not serious about tracking. I really needed a dog that was very outgoing, with the drive and desire to do it. When I heard in April 2016 that Jean Dieden had another litter out of her wonderful bitch, Phinny, DC Hathor Farm’s Down To The Wire, the dam of my Belle, I contacted her, told her what I needed, and asked if she might have a puppy that would be right for me. She said, “Well, there is this one...” That one was Coco! Coco walked into my house at about 11 weeks old and took over! She had to be first in everything! She was a little wild child! On top of everything, into everything, she knew no boundaries! She went wherever she wanted to, but wasn’t destructive, or have bad intentions, just so inquisitive. She was very smart too, a quick and energetic learner. I started her out in Rally where she quickly earned as far as Rally Advanced before I quit that and turned to Obedience. It was harder, but she earned CD & CDX in not too many tries. She had to learn to relax in the ring, and once she did, everything was much easier, and she really liked doing it. 20

From the minute I started teaching her to track, like the very next day after getting home, she took to it like a duck to water. She had a nose on her that was simply amazing! But she was so wild, she flew this way and that, got to corners and would start racing in huge circles around me, going faster and faster until she hit the scent of the next leg and take off! It was a lot of fun, even hilarious! And she was pretty accurate, but way too crazy. I put her in a TDU early on, and I think the judges thought we were both nuts, flying here and there, across a street, then racing back, but always making progress, and somehow, we Passed!


I’ve learned a lot about tracking from two different trainers, Ed Presnall and Ann McGloon. One helped me learn to handle, read my dog, and have confidence in myself, and the other one that helped me teach Coco to focus, add great value to articles, have confidence in herself, and take responsibility for finding those articles. They turned us into a working team! Living in the city, I decided to go a different route to CT, working on VST before TDX. We failed about 4, most of them my fault honestly, then went to Houston December 1st, 2019, and Passed! It was a glorious day! I had a feeling TDX would be the hardest for us living in the city, with not much opportunity to get out in rough country,

and, (a big AND!) Coco loved to hunt! The first three TDX's had lots of critters, most unique to her, and so very interesting! Field mice, moles, rabbits, etc. They won every time! Then COVID hit and we couldn’t go to any more tests that spring. I worked her on short tracks, starts, tricky bits, and games all summer, getting her more and more into it. Off to Houston again for a TDX on December 6th, 2020. This time her focus was all on the track. At about midway she lost it but wouldn’t give up searching until she found it again! Seemed like an hour, but I didn’t lose faith, I knew she could do it! After that it all went pretty fast, another three legs, two turns and a deep ditch, and then there she was continued on next page... Dachshund Club of America Spring 2021

sitting on the glove, looking proud as punch! Pass!! TDX & CT & TC! TC because she finished her Conformation Championship in the capable hands of Marietta Singleton, with kind assists by Kathleen Lockyer, in Perry, GA only the weekend before! Coco is sired by the handsome MBISS GCHS Rosethorn Globe-Trotter MW, owned by Sheila Parish. Coco started working on her FC when she was 9 months old at the field trials in Kirbyville, TX where she was NBQ both days. In her next trial, two months later in Ladonia, TX she was Absolute in a field of 90! The next weekend in Ladonia, she got another 1st place, but had to wait until March at a trial in GA for a third placement, a 3rd place, for her FC. She was a few days past her first birthday. She is 5th generation Absolute! Coco is working in Utility obedience and Agility now, eventually more Rally, and hopefully we’ll get back to Earthdog in the Fall. Earthdog has been somewhat of a challenge with Coco. She trains at home perfectly, working the rats as long as I want, until I open the hatch, or recall, where she comes out quickly. But at a test, out in the country, she won’t stay in with the rats when she thinks there might be far better prey (rabbits!) on the outside of the tunnels! On a scale of desirable prey for Coco, rabbits are way above rats! Funny because for her sister Belle, who was one leg shy of EE2 when I lost her, it was the exact opposite. But I’ll keep working on it, because it’s one of my favorite events and I miss it. We might even go to a field trial or two for her to just have some fun now that I won’t mind her crittering! And maybe something new? Scentwork? Dock Diving! Coco loves to swim and retrieve in water. ;-) At barely 5 now, Coco is still so young and always more than ready for whatever I want her to do! Definitely puppies in the future, but not yet. Coco comes from a long line of tracking dogs, so I am hoping to one day be out tracking with her daughter. One thing I do know for sure, we’re going to keep tracking for now!

Coco is owned, loved and handled by Stephany Monteleone

The Miniature Dachshund ~ Celebrated Around The World by Lee Connor

C

h. Primrosepatch Diamond, the first longhaired Miniature Dachshund to win an AKC Championship - 1948.

Regular readers will know of my deep affection for the Boston Terrier, however my first (and abiding love) is for the Dachshund, a breed I have known (and been owned by) for almost forty years. Indeed, my very first dog was a black and tan, Miniature Long- Haired Dachshund who I named ‘Lucy-Lou’. Despite being born into a ‘dog owning’ family (keeping German Shepherds and Rottweilers) I had begged for a dog of my very own. I wanted one just like ‘Bonnie’ (my Grandmother’s dog) who was a Dachshund. Again and again, I asked for my own dog and my request was repeatedly denied. However, around the time of my tenth birthday, after spending a weekend with my Aunt and Uncle, I came home and my mom took one look at me and said, “What on earth have you been doing? Your face is filthy, go to the bathroom right now and wash it.” With my bottom lip trembling I walked sulkily to the bathroom and as soon as I stepped inside, I could hear a pathetic whimpering. Pulling back the shower curtain, I looked down into the bath tub and discovered a Photography by Eline de Groot-Koolhaas

Dachshund Club of America Spring 2021

tiny black and tan Dachshund puppy. My dream had finally come true! To me, she was perfection. From that day, Lucy and I were inseparable. She accompanied me and my friends down at the river, swimming with us – never ever tiring. She joined me on my forays into the British countryside, always by my side, like my shadow. I absolutely loved that dog. Her only fault, if it can be described as such, was that she was an inveterate hunter…and once, when we were out on our escapades, she chased some rabbits and as they sought (what they foolishly assumed ) to be sanctuary in their burrows, she surprised them by following them straight in! We listened to her muffled barking as she went deeper and deeper underground in hot pursuit and then, a short while later she suddenly popped out twenty/thirty feet away! It was a great game and one she (and I) clearly enjoyed, however there was one particular instance where she remained underground for over an hour. It frightened me and, from that moment, whenever there were rabbits (and rabbit burrows) around, I kept Lucy securely on a leash – there was to be no more subterranean adventures for Lucy-Lou. My father, however, had other ideas, and whilst on a seaside holiday, despite being firmly told to keep Lucy on her leash, he let her off when he spotted some rabbits. Of course, she took off across the dunes, ears flapping and barking loudly, disappearing into the nearest burrow and I never saw her again. I spent every day (for the rest of the holiday) camped out by those rabbit burrows in the forlorn hope that she would eventually emerge. I learned a dreadful lesson that day and was completely devastated by the whole experience, but the Dachshund had firmly captured my heart and, in time, a whole succession of miniature Dachshunds (of all coats) have enhanced my life. They are a truly delightful breed with an equally fascinating history. For almost as long as the Dachshund has been known, small specimens bred from normal-

sized parents have occasionally occurred. Prior to 1914, in England, no particular value was placed on these mites, and as they were far too small to compete in the show ring they were usually sold or given away as curious pets. In the breeds homeland of Germany however, these tiny specimens were put to practical use penetrating the burrows of rabbits. The Kanichen-teckel (RabbitDachshund) Club was formed in 1905 with a view of using very small Dachshund in place of ferrets in driving out rabbits. In 1909 a few of these little dogs were brought to England by Austrian, Herr Heerman, who thought that he could popularize them in the UK. Sadly their importer died the following year and nothing is known about what happened to his dogs. It was not until shows had been re-started after the First World War that a serious effort was made to win recognition for the Miniature Dachshund in Britain. The first Miniature Smooths to be recognized in England were those of Lady May Blakiston and Miss A.M. New in 1925. In that year a dog and a bitch were imported from Denmark – Hans Von Fehmarn and Bitterlin. Bitterlin was shown at Crufts, alongside her Standard counterparts. In 1929, Miss Dixon imported an in-whelp bitch, and from this litter, born in quarantine, Klein Kurio, a small red dog – a perfect Dachshund in miniature – was kept. The previous mating of Hans and Bitterlin had fortuitously resulted in two bitch puppies. One was retained by Lady May and Miss New, the other joined the kennel of Mrs. Howard (who was renowned for her Standard Wires) and she mated her to Klein Kurio. Klein Kurio created quite a sensation on his debut and he came as a complete revelation to show goers who had only ever seen standardsized representatives of the breed. Any “toy” Dachshund that had been exhibited previously had shown obvious alien blood and the majority had possessed faults such as round skulls, google eyes, short ears and were often high on the leg and shallow in the chest. Klein Kurio, however, fully justified the title, ‘Miniature Dachshund’ for he was most definitely not a ‘toy’; Kurio was a sporting little dog (he weighed just 6-and-one-half pounds when full-grown), but he was a true hound. However, things were still far from easy for those early Miniature Dachshund pioneers. There was quite a bit of hostility shown by certain exhibitors of their larger brethren, who often castigated the newcomers by continuing to describe them as toys, freaks and degenerates. This antagonism was, thankfully, short-lived for the little dogs adequately proved to be just as fearless, game and hardy as their standard-sized relatives. In an extraordinary turn of affairs, several of those who had achieved great distinction in breeding and exhibiting the Standard Dachshund were soon numbered among the miniature’s staunchest supporters! An immense step forward was made in 1935, when a special club to foster the interests of the Miniature Dachshund was formed. The avowed


purpose of the Miniature Dachshund Club was to encourage the breeding of sound, typical Dachshunds of all coats of a weight not exceeding 10 pounds. Some of the most well-known names in Standard Dachshunds served on that early committee, including Mrs. Herdman, who was then one of the most successful breeders and exhibitors of Longhaired Dachshunds and, from the get-go, it was the Longhaired Miniature that got off to a flying start. Shortly after 1935, Miss Dixon, together with Major Reynell, imported a team of Miniature Longs. The Germans had bred from their Kaninchens, crossing them with Papillons. Although these little dogs proved to be very game and fearless, the large round eyes, fluffy coats and short bodies betrayed the fact that Papillon blood wasn’t too far back. One of the very best of these early imports, brought in by Major Reynell, was a dog, Halodri von Fleezensee. He was a sound, wellribbed little dog and was used widely at stud. Another celebrity in this kennel was “Zwergin Ariel v. Himmel”, whose chief claim to fame was that he was born in the airplane coming over from Germany when his mother was only 6 weeks into her pregnancy! This tough little dog weighed 5 pounds as an adult. Photography by Nancy Halodri’s most famous Prouty progeny was Knowlton Chocolate Soldier, who was bred from an imported bitch. This dog made a great name for himself and was the influential foundation of the Robsvarl and Primrosepatch Miniature lines – indeed he was so successful at stud that his name can be found in the pedigrees of many present-day miniatures if they are traced back far enough. As I previously mentioned, the Miniature was fortunate in having among its ranks extremely experienced breeders of the larger variety. These breeders had often found small puppies in their Standard-bred litters. Understandably, these tiny bitches were often not bred from fear of difficulties when it came to whelping. A number of exquisite Standard-bred “Miniatures” such as Miss Muffet of Querns (a smooth) and Gretel of Mornyvarna (a long)–extremely typical little Dachshunds–appeared which, but for their very small size, would have won high honors in Standard competition. These superlative bitches, who might have done so much to improve type in the Miniatures, were never bred from and opportunities were wasted. Mrs. Smith-Rewse, the owner of the famous Primrosepatch Kennels–England’s largest in Longhaired Standards–was the first to challenge the widely held notion that breeding from these small, Standard-bred bitches would result in the death of the bitch when whelping.

She found that her small, Standard-bred bitches actually whelped remarkably free from any difficulty and their puppies were then able to be mated to pure-bred Miniatures, greatly improving type and encouraging others to follow her lead. The Primrosepatch kennel pioneered this way of thinking and once again the Miniature Longhaired was the variety that received the greatest boost. Strangely enough, the Miniature Smooth breeders were reluctant to use Standard bloodlines to improve their stock and for quite some time the variety made little headway. Thankfully, breeders did eventually awaken to the benefits that could come from a judicious use of Standard blood. A number also made use of the improved Miniature Longs to improve both bone and ribbing. Shortly after the Second World War, Sir Charles Lambe and Mr. and Mrs. Moloney became interested in trying to establish the Miniature Wirehaired Dachshund in the UK. They clearly didn’t share the reservations of the Miniature Smooth folk and seemed happy to adopt the tried and tested methods of Mrs. Smith-Rewse in perfecting and establishing the latest addition to the Dachshund family. Sir Charles Lambe owned a bitch, Kiwi, who consistently whelped in each litter remarkably small puppies. Kiwi weighed 14 pounds although bred from Standard stock. In 1950 she was mated to a Miniature Smooth dog, and from this mating a wire, Nutmeg of Dunkerque (11 pounds) was kept. Nutmeg became one of the foundation bitches of this influential line. Miss Avis Earle gets most of the credit for bringing the Miniature Dachshund to the attention of the American public. In 1948, Miss Earle left gloomy post-war England for the sunny climes of California taking with her the best Longhaired Miniature Dachshunds she could buy as a foundation for her new kennel– Tinyteckel–in Beverly Hills. The dogs that traveled across the pond were Primrosepatch Zinnia, Gracechurch Fairy Dream,

Smokeyhole Mimi, Smokeyhole Rolfi, and Ch. Primrosepatch Diamond. Diamond, competing against Standard Longs, became the first Miniature Longhaired Dachshund champion in the United States. What fascinated me, as an owner of a famous Mini Smooth TV star here in the UK, was discovering the history of one of Diamond’s sons. Tinyteckel Ever Ready was the first Miniature obedience winner. Lois Meistrell wrote about him in “The New Dachshund”: “Ever Ready’s obedience title, plus his style and showmanship inherited from his father, earned him the job, over twenty-two well trained motion picture dogs, as the canine lead in “Fancy Pants”, which featured Bob Hope. Ever Ready’s successful debut into showbusiness brought more calls from producers for Tinyteckel Dachshunds. Tinyteckel Buttercup was the four-footed star of the Dennis Day show on TV. Buttercup, who weighed 4 pounds, had a wardrobe of hats, dresses, sweaters, raincoats and even a mink coat made up for her by the studio’s wardrobe department.” In the early 1950s, Miss Earle returned to England in search of an outcross for her kennel, she returned with a Miniature Smooth, Tinyteckel Magical of Seale, bred by Mrs. Howard. Magical carried the renowned Minivale bloodlines and these combined very successfully with Miss Earle’s established stock. On reviewing the history of the Miniature Dachshund, one can only admire the courage and determination of its early breeders and showgoers. They put up with ridicule, denigration and severe setbacks in their breeding programs but they persisted to achieve their desired goal – a true Dachshund in Miniature. Today the Miniature Dachshund (in all its myriad of coats and colors) are quite rightly celebrated all around the world, as pets and show dogs, indeed registrations of the little ‘uns now often far exceed their larger brethren. Proving that the old adage is quite correct, “Good things really do come in small packages!”! Photography by Dawn Watters

Game Is Where You Find It by Trudy Kawami

D

achshunds love to hunt whether it is live game, a favorite toy, a crumb on the floor or the local feral cat. But you don’t have to move to the country or endanger the local feline population to hunt. Just look around to see what is available. While walking through your own neighborhood, let your dog’s nose tell you what’s about. Rats (Rattus norveigicus) are the most common quarry in urban settings. Since rats are

usually nocturnal, doing most of their moving and feeding at night, they can be hard to spot in daylight. By identifying the entrances to the colony’s living quarters, often a large crack in a sidewalk or a notable crevice by a storm drain, you can return after dusk with your dog on lead and perhaps catch one. You will find that your dog enjoys the game of “Find it”. And you are performing socially distanced community service. Even a bit of pressure, or even better predation, can make rats leave for other locations. Rats are a known vector for leptospirosis and ANY dog that hunts small game should be vaccinated for it annually. (Actually any dog that gets outside should have

the vaccine. It can be transmitted by all sorts of rodents, even squirrels, as well as raccoon and opossum.) Recycling centers are another good location to look for rats. Of course you have to clear this with whoever runs the center and do it in a way that does not disrupt the center’s work. But such places are often glad to have someone hassle the rats which can become far too comfortable with humans. Mulch piles in park maintenance facilities are


another source of game. Just make sure to have permission first. I was going to write that in suburban environments you can also encounter opossum, woodchucks and raccoon, but all three species are now found in New York City. You can pretty much find them anywhere in the Big Apple, yes even Central Park. Staten Island is also full of them (along with wild turkeys that can get territorial and white tail deer – but that’s another story). Small game hunting in residential area may be strictly controlled depending on your state’s regulation. So don’t assume that you can harvest small game wherever you wish. You can however expose your dog, and get it to identify the quarry. I do not intentionally hunt ‘possum (Didelphis virginiana) as they are beneficial to the environment as they eat a lot of ticks. Unlike rats they are a native species (the only surviving North American marsupial) and are not a vector for rabies. I do let my dogs bay the one that hangs out on my back fence. One night some years ago there was a ruckus under the bushes in my little back yard when I let the dogs out before going to bed. I could tell by the sounds that they found game, and I hoped it was not a feral cat. I got everyone except mini Ember (8 lbs.) in house. When I went pulled her out she had a juvenile ‘possum in her mouth. I pried her jaws open, let the carcass drop and carried her in the house intending to retrieve the body the next morning. Of course it was not there. Possum have a remarkable ability to “play dead.” Their heart rates drops drastically, their respiration appears non-existent, their mouth sags open. As soon as the predator is gone, they resume normal respiratory and cardiac functions

(Powhatan) term aroughcun, “animal that scratches with its hands.” I do NOT encourage hunting raccoon. They have sharp teeth as well as long claws on fore and hind feet. They can really hurt a dog by biting, grabbing with the front claws and raking the dog with their hind claws.. Furthermore raccoons are vectors for a number of zoonoses (diseases that affect both humans and animals) like rabies and distemper. Dachshunds are usually game for raccoon, but it is not worth an infected facial bite – or a lost eye. As with ‘possum you can let your dog see game and even bay (bark at) it. Not only will your dog enjoy this, the wild critters will learn to keep away from humans with dogs which benefits their species and ours in the long run. So, take a leashed walk with your Dachsie in the early morning or at dusk and see what game your dog can find.!

and go on their way. They are a marsupial, not a mammal, and their distinctive metabolism enables this remarkable feat. On the other hand, their metabolism gives them a very short natural life span, about 2 years. Raccoon (Procyon lotor) also make themselves at home in many environments, including my own block in Brooklyn. Like the ‘possum they are a native species and even our name for them comes from the Native

New test program for Junior handling: Juniors Competing with Canine Partners The Board discussed the recently approved policy to permit Junior handlers to compete in Conformation Junior Handling with AKC enrolled Canine Partners. Following a motion by Ms. Biddle, seconded by Dr. Battaglia, the Board VOTED (unanimously) to allow clubs to opt-out of accepting entries from Junior Handlers with Canine Partners if they choose. The start date of this pilot program was pushed back until January 1, 2022 to allow for AKC to complete the programming that is required to enable for the opt-out on event applications. Delegate meetings: the AKC Delegates’ Meeting have been on Zoom and are not on the regular schedule thus making it difficult to keep up with them. However, hopefully this will change as the world gets back to some kind normal.
