If your dog has reached one of these fantastic milestones please advise our Secretary, Mrs Joan Cross by May 11th 2019. She will require full pedigree details of each dog.

The Dachshund Club of Queensland is deeply saddened by the passing yesterday of Val Bowden. Val was a long time Life Member of our Club.
Together with Val Lingard she produced many champion Miniature Smooth and Miniature Long Dachshunds under the “Valgarden”  prefix.
Val was an active committee member of our Club and was always available to share her knowledge of Dachshunds with new members and new exhibitors in the show ring.
She was a member of the hugely successful 2009 National Show organising team and was always actively involved in Club Events such as Fun Days and other Club functions.
Val will be sadly missed.

Val’s funeral will be held at the Mt Gravatt Crematorium, Mains Road, MacGregor at 1pm on Wednesday January 23rd.
