Ch Dynadaux I'm Moving On MS

Hi, my name is Leslie Batchelder. I have been in dogs all of my life, or as long as I can remember.

I started showing dogs when I was 16. My first "showdog" was a Malamute that a friend had given me. By the time I was 21, I was married, had two children and a yard full of Irish Setters. In 1971 my cousin brought his Dobermans over to run and play with kids ( I now had four ) in the back yard... I was in love…

I didn't get my first Doberman until 1980, when my husband finally gave in and got me one for Mother's Day…I haven't been without one since.

Then in 1993, I was at some International Shows in Salem, Oregon with my good friend and Dachshund breeder, Noma Moore. I was

showing my Dobes and Toy Poodles … she had brought a pregnant Dachshund bitch with her and we whelped a beautiful litter of black and tan mini smooth Dachshunds in the 5th wheel.

When I got back home, I was telling my husband about them and he made the comment that when his old Standard Poodle passed on, he would like to have a Dachshund … WHAT!! I said, they're ugly.. no legs, knobby knees, long bodies ... yuk. BUT, to humor him (I already had 6 dogs and he had 1 old Poodle) I called Noma and told her I wanted a Dachshund for Jim for Christmas...

WELL, when I went to the airport to pick up HIS new baby, at 9 weeks old, Nomala's Li'l Sophia MS stepped out of that crate and into my heart. Since then there have only

Seven month old Dobes (R-L):
Trooper, Spencer, Seiko and Ducati

been Dachshunds and Dobermans for me.

We are a small kennel (house) of seven mini Dachshunds and two Dobermans. I don't often breed my Dobermans - in fact only twice since 1980. I do show them in conformation, obedience, agility and am starting rally. They are my Dachshund's guardians.

My Dachshunds are owned by myself and both of my Daughters. One of my Daughters, Stephani, keeps the males and I keep the girls. All of our dogs live in the house and puppies are born and raised right in the living room, where at this time Sophia at 14 years young teaches them to honor their elders.

Please feel welcome to check out our dogs. All pet puppies are sold on spay or neuter contracts. No puppies of mine will ever be sold to a pet shop…or puppy mill. If you would like more information please email me at tarma@tarmakennels.com.
