I would like to thank The Midland Dachshund Club for inviting me to judge at their CH show on 14th July 2018. I would also like to thank exhibitors for their entry despite change of judge due to unfortunate circumstances. I truly wish speedy recovery to Mrs Penny Young. I thoroughly enjoyed my day, and I had some good quality dogs to go over. All the dogs were well turned out and in good condition, that saying, I did notice few exhibits were carrying a bit of excess weight and I would also like to see more muscle condition. There were also few with level bites. I was delighted to see my BOB to go BIS.
