Thanks to The Long Haired
Dachshund Club for inviting me to judge Dachshund Miniature
Long Haired males at this prestigious well run show. Thanks
also to my very efficient steward for his excellent assistance
given to me on the day it was greatly appreciated. Thanks also
to the exhibitors for allowing me to go over their lovely dogs
and giving me a lovely day and taking the decisions so
sportingly. On seeking my winners, I knew the type I was looking
for in accordance with the requirements of the breed standard
and my mind’s eye. I gave consideration to the desired height to
length ratio and ground clearance and a dog that looked very
much fit for purpose and was pleased with the entry.
