August 2007:

Geri Richman reports:
Sera turned 9 on July 28th and Ryder got his BH, RN, and CD.

Janie Wondergem reports:
Saluki "Reggie" (TSH Crystal's Payday, CDX!!!, SC,GRC) earned the third and final leg of his CDX with a fourth placement at the Waukesha Kennel Club show on July 27.  Mom and Reggie plan to do a little rally training, hopefully finishing his RA as we work on the scent discrimination and other tasks necessary to work Utility. 

Freddi Greenberg reports:
I am writing to advise you of the death of my flat coated retriever, Keely, also known as Songdog's Kilowatt Hour.  Keely and I spent many enjoyable hours training with NSDTC.  She absolutely loved being there and doing her thing in novice obedience, though we did not ever get a CD.  She also enjoyed tracking and we appreciated Mary Ann Fowler's working with us on that.

Keely was diagnosed with Cushing's disease over a year ago.  She was treated and did well, with little change in her lifestyle and activities other than a need to reduce stress.  Despite this, the pituitary tumor that caused her Cushings turned out to be malignant and one day a few weeks ago it grew into the hypothalmus and she was gone in about a day, with no pain as I am told by veterinarian at the Specialty Hospital in Buffalo Grove, where just happened to be for a test at the moment she collapsed.  She had a great day the prior day and all along before that, so that was good for her but all was a shock to us.

She was a wonderful companion, bright and obedient.  Our vet noted to use that he was impressed when I told her to stand in the examining room so he could put her on the table and she continued to stand till she was lifted down from the table.  We miss her a lot.

She was 11.
We are planning a new puppy in the spring and we will be back to train with you folks.

April 2007:

Janie Wondergem reports:
Reggie (TSH Crystal's Payday, CD, SC,GRC) had a GREAT weekend at the Rand Park Dog Training Club trial this past weekend! He apparently decided it was time to do what those who train with him know he is capable of and quailified in Open A class under judges Robbin Shea and Sharon Hodgens-Wood both days of the trial. His score Saturday was a respectable 186 for which he earned a Fourth Placement! On Sunday he outdid himself with a 192! I can't seem to get the grin off of my face! Two down, one to go!

Mary Anne Fowler reports:
"The last three months have been a time of joy and a time of sadness. In February my DC Fancy That Sheshannah SW, TD, UDX, VC, RE finished her UDX. In March she took High in Trial and High Combined at a specialty. The Parent Club ranked Hannah #2 for obedience dachshunds in 2006.

"I am sad to report the loss of DC Fancy That Nikala SW, TD, CD in April. She was my first wirehaired dachshund and my first Field Champion and is sadly missed by me and my two dachshunds."
