Windsor Championship Dog Show 2014
Dachshund (Miniature Wire Haired)
Judge: Mrs G Mead
Enjoyed my day at this lovely venue, always a well run show, my thanks to the committee, for this appointment temperaments were very good on the whole, a couple of unsure dogs where I am sure a little more ring training would help, I was surprised to see quite a few with dirty teeth!! Loved my top winners, but type did vary considerable making for some difficult decision
