Pictures of dachshunds running rabbits

Today, finally, I had a chance to take some dogs to the New Scotland Beagle Club, which is located just 14 miles from our home. It was so much fun to spend a couple of hours watching dogs flush and run rabbits. Elli, who is our best field trial dog, had the best runs. I managed to get some shots when she ran a rabbit into the hole and then worked it.

She could smell the rabbit but could not get it so she got really frustrated and started to pull branches at the entrance to the hole.

Below is the picture of Joeri vom Nonnenschlag working the same rabbit.

Besides Elli and Joeri I also had Tommy (Tom vom Linteler-Forst) whom I ran solo. This was his only second trip to the beagle club, and he needs to work by himself. He opened three times so he is making a good progress.
I will be going only to a couple of field trials this spring. The first trial this season for Elli, Joeri and Tommy will be on the weekend of May 9-10 in central New Jersey.
