I would like to thank The Miniature Dachshund Club for inviting me to judge. I would also like to thank exhibitors for their entry. I thoroughly enjoyed the day, the beautiful venue and friendly atmosphere; it was so refreshing to see people applauding around the ring. Generally all the dogs were well turned out and in good condition, that saying, I did notice that quite a few exhibits had wrinkles which seem to be creeping in, I would also like to see more muscle condition. Hind movement on some exhibits demonstrated a flick on of the legs before placing the foot on the ground. I was pleased to see my BOB to go BIS as well as BPIB being awarded RBPIS. Congratulations to all the winners. MinI Smooth Haired: PD (2) 1 Houghton's Hollygor Bradley Wiggins; 10mth old dog with nice head and expression. Good length of neck. Nice proportions and well balanced. Good shoulders and front angulation. Nice length of ribbing. He moved well and held a good top line. Won the class on movement.
