This was my first CC
appointment, so I would like to thank the Midland Dachshund Club for the
invitation and for making me feel so welcome. Secondly, thank you to my steward for a fantastic
job and all the exhibitors who entered under me, braving the sun for the day!
It should be noted that the judging took place on one of the hottest afternoons of the year, which no
doubt was a challenge for both the dogs and handlers, and was taken into account when
assessing the dogs movement. Similarly there were a few youngsters who were a bit unsure, this
was noted although not necessarily heavily penalised as the restrictions we have faced this last
year will of course have impacted puppy socialisation. I was pleased with the quality of the entry,
overall the bitches were possibly stronger although there were many across both sexes that really
stood out to me and showed a lot of promise. Judging without scales, there were a few dogs that
seemed very well covered. Sadly I did see a few dirty teeth, which were penalised.
