Midland Dachshund 2019
Dachshund (Miniature Long-haired)
Judge: Andrew Whitfield-Roberts
Best Puppy Dog : HARRIS & MCLACHLAN Zarcrest Flash Gordon
Best Puppy Bitch : GODDARD & & GODDARD Minard Darque Angel
Firstly my thanks to the Midland Dachshund Club for this invitation to judge, this being my first CC appointment I felt at eased and welcomed. This must come down to the hard work of the officers and committee of this club. I felt that overall the quality of the bitches outweigh the Dog with a lot of promising young bitches coming through. I feel the need to note that feet need improvement and we need to watch the length of loin.
