Margaret Turner is working out the Smooth Haired Dachshund Club’s list and these will be published later on their website.
The Dachshund Breed Council have had many donations given in 2017 for the Health Fund, the sale of Christmas cards by Selina Knox raised £2,000 to be ring-fenced for IVDD. We thank everyone who has raised money for the health fund, Ian Seath our Chairman will be giving a breakdown of the account shortly.
Hope who all went to Boston had a good day; will see the results later.
I have got Schedules now for the Smooth Haired Club ch show on the 21st April/18 to be held at Ryton on Dunsmore back to back with the Longhaired Club Ch show. Fay has put the schedule up onto Showdach so anyone can download. I will be at most shows coming up and have them with me, or if you think you won’t see me, let me know and I will post out.
