Free Thermal Imaging of your Dachshund's Back at SDA Show

Do you have a Smooth or Mini Smooth Dachshund? then this weekend there is an opportunity to participate in a new research project to investigate the health of Dachshunds' backs.

The first screening opportunity will be at the Southern Dachshund Association's Championship Show on January 19th, in Slough (Montem Leisure Centre).

Thermographer and veterinary nurse Anna Schumann will be attending the SDA (Ch) Show to take thermal images of Dachshund backs for a long-term study. The aim of the study is to see if thermal imaging can used as a diagnostic predictor for future back problems in the breed. You can read more about this research here.

If time permits, we will also be able to take some images from the other four varieties of Dachshund.

There is NO CHARGE to participate in this research and it is completely non-invasive. All your dog needs to do is stand still for a picture to be taken using a Thermal Imaging camera.

Please download a Registration Form, fill it in and bring it with you to the Screening session.

Owners of dogs not entered at the show can also bring dogs for screening, but will also need to register as “Spectators' Dogs” at the show.

For more information, please e-mail Anna Schumann.


Celebrity Tatler Alan Dachshund dies in tragic accident

Everyone was horrified to hear about poor little Alan, Tatler's very own office pup. This freak accident could have happened to anyone. 

Alan, who was often pictured asleep at a desk, was listed online as “Office Manager at @TatlerUK byday, The Badger Hunter by night”.

The dog had become a firm favourite in the world of women’s magazines, fashion and PR for its regular photographs and commentary about life as Tatler’s favourite pet. Fans included Rosie Fortescue, an actress who features in Made in Chelsea and called Alan her “ideal man”, and Jo Elvin, the editor of Glamour, who called the dog a “dreamboat”. (Telegraph link)

Our heartfelt condolences go out to owner Jennifer George. 

Bringing pet dogs to work can reduce stress levels and Alan naturally played a huge part in bringing a huge smile to everyone's faces.
