I thoroughly enjoyed my day to Judge for the first time. I had 12 dogs present to Judge and I was specially delighted that few of my chosen Dachshunds done so well. The standard long haired took 1st place in Hound Group, puppy standard long haired took 2nd place in Puppy Group and miniature smooth puppy took 4th place in Puppy Group.
