29/12/2010 Dog Wild Boar.
: Freckleface Pacemaker (Imp Finland). Dam Aust Ch Tinsnips
is a special boy being the only male retained from the gorgeous
Puddles who is now retired and just playing the grand matriarch
He lives with his older sibling Squeak and is very much like
her in type and attitude. He is very raw and probably will
not mature into the dog we hope he will be until he is at
least 3. From July 2010 he became eligible to compete against
the big boys for his championship. I have taken him along
to a few shows but mainly he enjoys his life sharing his toys
and playing with his mates at Tinsnips. He was lucky enough
to be awarded "PUPPY IN SHOW" at the Dachshund Club
of Vic Specialty show Sept 2010 under breed specialist Mike
Turner (UK), and Strop has also acheived a Best in Hound Group
at 9 months beating out 102 hounds! He is finally getting
the idea of being a showdog although he doesnt feel that standing
in a line is much fun! In less than 4 months Strop gained
the required 100 points for his Aust. Championship but had
to achieve 25 more after turning 12 months . He did this in
4 shows and now has earned the well deserved status of Champion.
He has a great future in front of him as he is slowly maturing
into the dog I thought he would be.
plays the goof at Tinsnips!"
