It’s been a busy old week in Chihuahua Town with UKTD. Easter is not far off now and then we start to see the outdoor shows. Last weekend I collected a fabulous box frame with a cut out of one of my boys in which to display his rosettes (you may have seen it on my Facebook page). This was made for me by Jessica Murray and they are absolutely beautiful. Please do contact her if you are interested in getting one for yourself. The cut out is done of your own dog, which makes it unique and special.
Results from UKTD:
Longs were judged by Dianne Robinson, her last judging appointment as she is retiring. We wish Dianne all the best for a long and happy retirement. However, she will still be showing locally and involved in the Smoothcoat Chihuahua Club. It was a day of ‘firsts’ as both the bitch and dog CC winners in longs took their first CCs.
