Midland Dachshund Club 2011
BEST IN SHOW
I was honoured to be asked to judge
Best In Show at the Midland Dachshund Club sub group championship show. I
would like to thank the other jduges for sending through an excellent selection
for me to choose from. Best In Show I gave to Norton's Standard Smooth
Ch.Matzell Mildred. Well constructed and looking capable of a day's work.
Beautiful proportions without any exaggeration. She also displayed her feminine
charms. Reserve Best In Show was Mitchell's Longhaired Ch. Bronia Lotario. In
excellent coat and condition. He is again my interpretation of the breed
standard and was on top form today. Best Puppy in Show I gave to the Miniature
wirehaired Fulton's Bothlyn Brigadoon. He caught my eye as he entered the
ring., Well constructed with a harsh coat. He moved with drive and purpose.
Reserve Best Puppy in Show was Mitchell's Longhaired Bronia Callista. From the
same mold as Reserve Best In Show, I was not surprised to discover she was a
repeat mating. She put on an excellent performance for her first attempt. I
will certainly watch her career with interest.
