Summer 1976 thru September 1990


             Trish found Bridget on the center strip of Kirkwood in the Alief area of Houston when she was 16. She was obviously a very young pup, but we were never able to find her owners. So she lived out her life as a cherished member of our family and Trish’s best friend.

             Buck was a chocolate lab mix that we adopted at the SPCA on an “impulse purchase” one Saturday afternoon. We don’t recommend this method of acquisition for dogs! We learned a lot from Buck. He lived nearly seventeen years as a beloved companion.


             Trish took her first obedience class with Buck, and from there went on to do competitive obedience with Chelsea.


             Chelsea and I learned about dog shows together. We “played” in conformation shows for nearly 18 months before she ever defeated another dog. But in the process we learned a lot about grooming, handling, and how to “play the dog game”. Soon we found Chelsea’s real skill was in obedience competition.


             She was nationally ranked in the Shuman and Delaney systems for all of her seven years in competition and also earned the following awards:


Dachshund Club of America #5 Obedience Dog—1995

Dachshund Club of America #6 Obedience Dog—1996

Dachshund Club of America #8 Obedience Dog—1997

Dachshund Club of American #7 Obedience Dog—2000


             5—Specialty High in Trial Awards

2—Specialty High Combined Awards

Numerous All breed Obedience Class Placements

6—UDX Legs

(we retired her due to cataracts that made it impossible for her to compete successfully)


2 Time—AKC Obedience Invitational Invitee


Chelsea was the grace of our home. She was a lovely little girl who  brought so much joy into our lives and left such a large hole when she departed.
