"It is of no relevance to know the lines above and beyond some 3-4 generations", say some. Others claim, that older ancestors, too, may influence a dog's looks and abilities. And then there are those of us who get plain caught up in the hunt for the ancestors - the more and the older, the better. I must admit, that I belong to the latter group..

Therefore, it is with great pleasure and pride that I'm presenting a dachshund line which starts somewhere in Germany in 1866, when a red, smooth dachshund lady saw the light of day for the first time. Like many of her contemporaries among the dachshund ladies, this little lady was named Waldine. 129 years and 38 generations later another dachshund entered this world. This dachshund was also red, but his coat was long. His name is Milloup, and he enriches my everyday life in numerous ways. He is gorgeous. So, too, was his many times great-great-granddam in all likelihood, for so they are, the dachshunds!

Between Waldine and Milloup lies an unbroken line of dachshunds. Some I know much about, others are but names; of some I have pictures, about others I do not even know which type of hair they had.

As mentioned, the line starts in Germany, homeland of the dachshund. 13 or 14 generations later the line moves on to Sweden (as this is the part of the line that I know the least about, I cannot say for sure when the change takes place).

The line now runs in Sweden for some generations, and it is here that a change takes place from the old smooth (and wires) to the longhaired variety. The smooth bitch Frosta Anaconda, 24 generation of Waldine, is mated to the longhaired dog Maximilian (this was still legal back then), and the result was the longhaired bitch Frosta Bibbsy. With Bibbsy yet another change takes place, as she is the one who carries the line to Denmark.

In Denmark the line moves on through three generations of Rønnede-dogs and on to Yanna and the Tranevang kennel. With 32 generation, Tranevangs B. Jaschatax, the line goes to France for a brief spell, but already with Jaschatax' son Till v. Teufelsgrund the line returns to Denmark - this time to stay.

The entire line looks as follows:

This is merely one of the routes possible between Waldine and Milloup. From Knopf (7 generation) there are three possible routes. From Monsieur Schneidig (8 generation) there are as many as seven routes. From Örebro Dick (18 generation) there are two possible routes. From Ulvemosens Kasper (26 generation) there are three routes, and from Rønnede G. Dominique and Rønnede D. Maxime there are two routes for each.

Some of these other lines definitely contain more than the 38 generations shown here. If you pick the longest possible route through the pedigree, then the number of generations may well reach 45 or even 50.
