Katherine Herrington’s Smooth Dachshund Breed Notes 5/10/17

Driffield Ch show was held on the usual site of Wetherby Racecourse, it was tough going this year with the bad weather of rain & mud but the committee coped really well over the 4 days & we all went prepared with Wellingtons & Macs. Both our 2 varieties had CCs on offer.

Min Smooths were Judged by Helen Wayman (Whippets) this was the first time of awarding CCs in Dachshunds.  Bitch CC & BOB Christine Russell’s Ch Russteck Plum Plum Duff. Res CC Sue & Jason Hunt’s Carpaccio Midnight Lace. Dog CC  Sue Ergis’s Ch Siouxline Aaron.  Res CC Sandra Williams Wilmerella Wells Fargo.  BPIB  Carolyn Scott  Wolferlow Blackberry Pie.

Smooths Judge was Stuart Mallard  Dog CC his 3rd & BOB  Leslie McNaughton’s  Carper AG Von Nordor (imp).  Res CC John Tite   Ch Phaeland Special Driver at Rijobeau.

Bitch CC Rhian Williams & Chris Moes  Ch Cwmdarhian Hotoff The Press, Res CC Sue & Jason’s  Lauralee Miss Marple at Carpaccio.

Two of our young Lady exhibitors in min smooths did really well in the 17 -24 years of age class of YKC stakes; it was a strong class. Bryony Fossett won 1st & Rachel Cumberland was 2nd.
