February 15, 1986 - March 3, 1996

Dasher was a specialty show winner and the mother, grandmother and great-grandmother of champions. Her sire was Ch Braaehaus Sailing Along, a recessive longhair littermate of Am Can Ch Braaehaus Big Buoy, a Dachshund Club of America National Specialty Show Best of Variety winner. She had three litters, producing champions in all three, including an impressive Best of Opposite Sex to the Best of Variety by her daughter Ch Jordemm's Black Magic at the Dachshund Club of Greater Buffalo.

Dasher was renowned for her keen hunting ability and the many unauthorized yard escapes from our house to go hunting. But Dasher was, above all, our friend, bed warmer and baby-sitter. She dutifully put our children Jordan and Emma to sleep each night, and then migrated to our bed. She gently woke me every morning to ask for breakfast, and when camping or traveling in the car, always protected us from strangers.

Now, Dasher-doo, there is no more pain and suffering; now you can hunt and chase small game as you did when you were young. And sometime later, we may meet again.
