We now have 4 dogs. Fletch, our great 8 year old male. Holli, a wonderful 6 year old female. Whitey, a 3 year old male who was the pick of Fletch and Holli's second litter. We added Kena, a female puppy from Goodwood's Dachshunds in Oregon to our family in November 2019 and she will be 2 in September of 2021. We will breed her to Whitey in December this year. Kena's dam is from Finland, (FC Keski-Maan Ivy Me). Her sire, (FC Goodwood 'To Good To Be Silasnced), both have fantastic bloodlines and will produce some phenomenal puppies god willing, in early 2022.
Update for Holli's Puppies 9/27/2021 All 6 of Holli's puppies have gone to wonderful new owners. It was a pleasure to meet all of you and experience your joy and excitement while you were picking you puppy! Its a wonderfull thing to see a bond take place between a puppy and their new owner. Its unmistakable and undeniable when you witness it. Thank you!! for driving and flying the long distances to come pick up your puppy- Minnesota, North Carolina, Maryland, Illinois, and Indiana. I gave it everything I had and then some to get these puppies to you healthy and happy. I thank God for having all the tube feeding supplies and milk replacer on hand and the courage, strength and ability to get them through their tough beginning! Holli was a great momma to her puppies, she just didn't produce milk. I also want to thank Claire Mancha of Goodwood Dachshunds, for her endless, selfless support and dirrection, guiding me through the process by taking my phone calls at all hours of the day and night for many weeks. I hope some day, I can be there for another breeder as she was there for me. I was able to finish the new paved puppy area a few days before they went to their new homes so, it is ready for Kena's litter early next year. I will post pictures of it and the other upgrades to the facility by November 1st. Life's tests come to us all, most of the time when we least expect them and when we continue to walk through them with a smile on our face and a song in our heart that smile justs gets bigger and the song louder when the test is over! Its time to rest for a few days before bow season starts this Friday!
Kena is now 20 months old and we will breed her sometime in December this year. We are taking reservations/deposits for 5 puppies in her 1st litter, and all of those have been reserved.
BDH has made some nice improvements to the whelping/weaning room, increasing the area by 30% when needed. Also, we just completed a paved/fenced 200 SF living area outside for the puppies and it is connected to the whelping/weaning room and puppy yard so they will have plenty of room to play and exercise when they are old enough to do so. I will be traveling to a field trial or two next year. Earlier this year added a Deer Skin dog box, and topper complete with wifi-temperature sensors, and cameras to the truck. Additionally, BDH purchased a travel trailer so that we can stay on sight at the competitions. The next chapter of Brown's Dachshund Hunt is about to begin!! Pictures/videos of all those upgrades/additions will be posted by the end of November.
Our dogs live and travel with us as part of our family. We include them in all of our daily activities and our lives revole around them!! They sleep at night in beautiful Mason Sani-kennels just a few feet from our bedroom and our whelping and weaning area is even closer. The whelping/weaning room also has a seperate outside kennel/yard for the puppies as they grow, (see pictures below). Both the main kennel and whelping room have wi-fi cameras and wi-fi temperture sensors. We take great care of our dogs and puppies, keeping them healthy and their living spaces immaculate and sanitary.
