for Fun to Kaytian
A pleasure to judge this spirited variety of Dachshunds in the lovely setting of The Malverns. The elements allowed them to be judged outside on grass allowing the true movers to really cover the ground. My winners pleased me immensely with the CC winners coming from opposite ends of the age scale. DCC and BPIB going to a precocious young dog ENEM SOLAR PWER and the BCC and BOB going to CH DRAKELEAT TOO GUD TO BE TRUE not just GUD BUT a great fully mature bitch delighted to award the CCs to these 2 lovely examples.
