For those who do not know us, we are Ken & Sandra Paskins, we live in Inverness in the Scottish Highlands with our standard long and wire haired dachshunds, and our recent additions our two mini longhaired dachshunds. we have owned dachshunds since the mid seventies and can't imagine life without them now. Dachshunds are a way of life totally different from any other breed we have had, ask anybody who has owned a dachshund and they will all tell you the same. Until 2003 we had only had standard longs, then in 2003 we acquired or first standard wire Soneve Prudance aka Nora Batty. Once old enough(Nora that is) Sandra started showing Nora and she was an instant success at local companion shows and quickly progressed to open and championship shows with lots of class and group wins to her name. It was at this time the Kindeace affix was registered with the Kennel Club and where our story really begins.
Life has never been the same ask anybody who breeds and shows dogs it takes over your lives completely. The numbers start to increase, puppies come along, your life savings are used on fuel and show entries, sacks of dog food and vet bills. The garden becomes a war zone, daxis love to dig and destroy flowers as they bloom, they basically become a very addictive and enjoyable way of life.
