Midland Counties Canine Society 28.10.2018

Chihuahua (Long Coat)

Many thanks for the super entry which I greatly appreciated. As an outsider in the breed I feel you need to pay attention to dentition which I realise it is not everything but a correct bite is important! Some rear action in the younger exhibits was weak. Most exhibits were presented in good order.

Many thanks for the sporting manner in which my placings were received and finally thanks to my two excellent stewards who kept everything in good order.
