In the past few weeks the Dachshund Club of Queensland has received very sad news from within the Dachshund community.
In late November our Vice President, Gyll Hoyle lost her husband Graeme after a courageous fight against a very rare form of cancer in his back.
Although Graeme wasn’t involved in showing Gyll’s Miniature Wire Haired Dachshunds he was always there with Gyll at Club functions. Graeme was a very skilled man and put his skills to work by not only building his own aircraft but also building two magnificent Morgan cars.
On November 26th 2018 a celebration of Graeme’s life was held at the Mount Thompson Crematorium where over 100 family and friends attended.
Condolences are extended to Gyll and her family. Graeme is sadly missed.
The Dachshund Club of Queensland also wishes to extend condolences to Madison Galloway who lost her Mum Leanne last weekend from cancer.
Madison is Loraine McMaster’s grand-daughter and is an accomplished junior handler of Loraine’s Miniature Smooth Dachshunds.
Unfortunately, Madison has not been able to attend many shows recently due to her mum’s illness.
Our thoughts are with Loraine, Madison, her sister Kasey and their dad Rick.
