was delighted to be invited to judge at this
progressive society's Championship Show. Some 25 yrs ago at the
Society's Ruby Anniversary show I had the good fortune to win B.I.S.
with my Miniature Wire-Haired Dachshund Morsefield Bizzy Bee. Today I
had the honour of judging B.I.S. myself. I thank the Society for the
hospitality shown and the breed judges for sending through some quality
exhibits for my evaluation. Best In Show: Darsoms Zangelina. Elegant
shaded red Long bitch of a super type, full of quality and a pleasure
