Rio hasn’t been shown since September at Darlington Championship Show. I have high hopes of him at least achieving a place in the first three. It get harder and harder to make your mark in the show ring as there are so many wonderful specimens of the breed. Fingers cross we will at least get placed.
Dinkidax Secret Santa has also been entered for this show. Still just a baby but nevertheless a lovely specimen of the breed. Fingers crossed the judge will like him Bojo Was entered at the Miniature Dachshund Association Championship Show. Still such a baby but had to be entered in the Junior Dog Class with dogs much older than him./ However, he did me proud and came third in his class. Well done matey you are now qualified for Crufts 2023.
We actually made it to the West Riding Dachshund Association Open Show at Shirland Village Hall.
Dinkidax Secret Santa won his Puppy class, and went onto win BPIB, but sadly got no further. Sherry won her class, but then she was the only one in it. Walnut Farm Faith sired by Lokmadi Rio Bravo at Dinkidax won her class and was Best of Breed, with Dinkidax Sandrayana winning Open Dog and Reserve Best of Breed.
Well once again we attended the #west Riding Dachshund Association Open Show held in the Shirland Village Hall. Only one in ring in operation so took forever for all the standard classes and variety classes to take place. Luckily we were last in the ring and managed to get a good parking spot. Nevertheless we still did not get into the ring until quite late into the afternoon. Dogs waiting were bored. However eventually Miniature longhaired made it into the ring. Dinkidax Secret Santa stood alone but was given 1st in the class. Lokmadi Rio Bravo at DinkIdax JW won Open Dog and went onto win BOB. Many thanks to Judge Rachel Wray
Boston and DC Society held a Championship Show at The East of England Showground Dinkidax Secret Santa Won his Junior Class and then progressed to Reserved Best Dog. Thank you Judge Minna Borsurk.
Next show was Manchester Dog Show Society Championship Show at Bingley Hall Showground, Stafford. Sadly Dinkidax was not represented at this show due too health reasons. I had a trapped Sciatic Nerve Problem.
