Chihuahua Smoothcoat

I was very pleased and honoured to be asked to judge at this lovely show. One of my favourite shows of the year – but oh, that traffic!  

Movement was very hard to assess due to the uneven ground, the relatively long grass (although all grass is long to Chihuahuas!) and it didn’t help that there was a mound of sand in the middle of the ring so unless there was an obvious fault with movement, I erred on the side of leniency.
