Liina on the cover of Der Dachshund

Aside from a wonderful trip and 2 great show results, we were excited to find out this weekend that Liina is the cover photo of the Deutscher Teckel Klub’s (German Dachshund Club) magazine this summer! Many thanks to Joana Krietsch (vom Eisenstein) for a photo that perfectly captures our princess.

We couldn’t be prouder of our little star who has been shown only 3 times this year and received 1xBOB & 2xBOS and 3xCACIB in 2 countries, earned the titles CIB, CIE and VDH-Europasieger, and also completed working tests in Germany: Sfk, Sp & BhFK/95.

Many thanks to all my mentors and friends for all their support along the way!



Double BOS in Oulu, Finland

6 days and 3500 km through the length of Sweden. A very long road trip that ended with great results.


Barbwired Champagne “Liina” was awarded 2x BOS with CACIBs from breed judge Marina Kovalenko (RU) and Anne Sume (EE), both days with lovely critiques!

Additionally, Barbwired Better than the Rest was Ex and BM4 in Ch class under judge Kovalenko. The long trip was a bit hard on our boy and we decided not to show him on the second day, so he was our kennel cheerleader instead. 🙂

We were lucky to have sunny skies, beautiful summer weather and great traveling companions for our crazy trip. We really saw the beauty that Sweden has to offer including our first wild moose and midnight sun. What an experience!
