I would like to thank the committee for inviting me to judge the Long Haired and Wire Haired Dachshunds at their 2023 show. The overall quality of both breeds was very good, and pleased to see my Longhaired BOB take group 4 in the Hound Group. Thank you to all exhibitors for your entries, and the sporting manner in which my placings were accepted. I would also like to thank my efficient steward Alan who kept the ring running smoothly.
