I thank the Dachshund Club for inviting me to judge BIS at their ch show & also the breed judges for sending through such quality exhibits.

BIS was Ch Drakesleat Scent Sybil, wow, the most exquisite Min W/h who oozes quality from top to tail, a true Dachshund in miniature. She really is top drawer & would be extremely difficult to beat in any company. I was delighted to award her BIS, it was an honour in fact; RBIS, Ch Matzell Mildred, S/h, a lovely little lady who for me stood out for her correct size, along with her many virtues; BP, Swansford Nigelladora Darsoms, a beautiful L/h who stood out for her sheer quality. Most definitely a star of the future; RBP, Denver Darling Senorita at Bronia, Min S/h, coming up to a year old, another one with a bright future ahead; & BV, Ch Swansford Burburydora, 8 years old L/h, as always from this kennel a beautiful example of the breed. Her movement is exemplary. Could give some of the youngsters a run for their money.
