SOUTHERN DACHSHUND ASSOCIATION OPEN SHOW

24TH JUNE 2018

Firstly, I need thank the Committee of the Southern Dachshund Assoc for putting on such a lovely, friendly atmosphere show….where everyone, judges, guests and exhibitors were made to feel really welcome. The show was very well organised – and the lunch that was provided was superb.

 

Overall I was very pleased with the entrants in both miniature and also the standard wirehaired dachshunds – a couple slightly plump and a couple who could do with a bit more weight and a couple with grubby teeth – but on the whole, the dogs were presented very well – thank you. I think some of them were struggling with the heat – and on a cooler day places may have been reversed on movement.
