Chihuahua Breed Notes 26/11/18
Well, the last few weeks have been very busy ones, with open shows and breed club shows. Christmas is fast approaching; it will soon be time to think about putting up the Christmas tree. Last year I opted for a table top tree but this year I’m going to try my floor standing tree as I’m hoping my little boys have had enough training by now to know not to cock their legs up it! Steve Rooney has had some super Chihuahua Christmas Tree Baubles for sale.
British Chihuahua Club Champ Show was on 18 November. It’s always one of my favourites, with a lovely atmosphere and fabulous Christmas Cards for sale.

South Wales Chihuahua Club Open Show was earlier in November; another show I sadly couldn’t get to as it’s also a lovely show with excellent hospitality from the committee. I’ve searched for the results but couldn’t find them so if any kind person could send them to me that would be much appreciated.

I have seen a post this week by West Mercia Police who have raided a property in Telford, seizing over 50 dogs, some of which would appear to be Chihuahuas. 5 people have been arrested on animal cruelty charges. Very sad.
