Waldmeister Dual Purpose Dachshunds









Current and Forthcoming Litters


Waldmeister Miss Nordwind (Missy) x Waldmeister Aldo

Born 29th August 2017


And as promised - here are the new arrivals. 2 dogs and 2 bitches. Missy made a meal of it! She kept us up all night on Bank Holiday Monday 28th August and was digging on and off all day on Tuesday 29th. At 3pm on Tuesday she produced a water bag and, despite her best pushes, could not manage to get the puppy out. A reluctant call to the vet, confirmed our fears that she needed help and we made an appointment for 6pm. At 5.50pm we took her into the garden for a quick wee before heading off to the vet. To my amazement, she squatted down and started to push the puppy out onto the grass!!! It was coming back end first and was stuck like a cork in a bottle! I helped her by gently pulling as she pushed ................. she screamed like a banshee and the whole neighbourhood must have thought we were torturing her!!! She then settled back upstairs with her newly born daughter, where she produced a dog about 45 minutes later, followed by a bitch and lastly, another dog. We were all done by 9pm. Despite this she managed a hearty breakfast, a small lunch and her evening meal between the first and second puppies being born!!!

25 days and out in the kennel for the first time ...... exciting!

Dominic, our 28 year old free spirit, came for a too short visit at the beginning of his month long holiday tour. We were the first stop from his home in Barcelona, then Poland, then Berlin (Bernd's home city), New York, Boston, Miami and finally back home to Barcelona. The dogs have never forgotten Dominic, despite his long disappearnces. Hattie was ecstatic, she and Dominic have an ongoing love affair! Missy does not know Dominic as well and she is mostly suspicious of people. Therefore, it was a joy to see Dominic climb into the whelping box with Missy and the puppies and see her totally relaxed and at ease while he played with her and her brood! A rare capture!

And now they crave freedom so as soon as they are awake, they scream to be let out and up on the grass they go to torment the adults and the oldies!! At almost 14 years old, Libby was not impressed with being chased and having her ears pulled!!

Then Grandma Hattie and Daddy Aldo joined in the fun!

Fighting, Digging, everything goes .....






Proud Mum MIssy, likes playing with her brood until their needle teeth bite her ...... then she lets them play with Dad and Grandma!!


You can clearly see the resemblance to Missy's dad, Samuel, in this picture!
