I really enjoyed my days judging, so many thanks to the committee of the Dachshund Club of Wales for inviting me to judge at their lovely show & to the exhibitors for giving me a decent entry, & for accepting my decisions in a sporting manner. Generally most were presented in first class condition. I was delighted to get my hands on some fine examples of the breed.
