Miniature Dachshund Club

Miniature Dachshund Club Sub Group Open Show, Sunday 17th June, 2018

I would like to give my grateful thanks to the committee for the invitation to judge all three varieties and to the exhibitors for such a lovely entry. Temperaments were as one would expect, wonderful. Dentition was excellent throughout, as was body condition with only a couple just tipping the scales. After judging the three varieties I handed over the reins to Jenny Rowe (Boloria) to judge BIS. I was extremely pleased with all the BOBs, BPIBs and BVIBs that I put forward and thrilled to see Best In Show awarded to the MSH, Jason and Sue Hunts, Carpaccio Midnight Lace JW, Best Puppy In Show to the MWH, Yvonne Kent’s Barratini Ready to Rumble at Lokmadi and Best Veteran In Show to the MSH, Yvonne Kent’s Lokmadi Hidden Dragon. It was an extremely enjoyable day and I congratulate you all on the friendly atmosphere and good sportsmanship.
