For various reasons, Shirley was out of dachshunds for many years. But, as she says it, she "is back!" Unknown to me, Shirley had posted this "throwback Thursday" photo on FB last week - on the exact same day that I had posted a photo of Bengel's half-sister Ericka!
An amazing "coincidence?"
Welcome back, Shirley!
Pictures of the first two dogs I started out with... The female on the left is Clipper Adelaide and the male on the right is CH. Dorndorf's Bengel Long....He finished with three five point majors and took best puppy at the Minnesota Dachshund Club Specialty Show. He was a Ch. Han-Jo's Flaming Flare son. I had great times with these two, that I'll never forget! - Shirley Menard, MN
