Chihuahua Breed Notes 30/01/19
Well, last weekend was a busy one in Chihuahua Town with a whole host of open shows and also a breed club show.
Midland Chihuahua Club’s open show was on Sunday at Polesworth. It had record entries for judges Joe Borges (longs) and Irene Robb (smooths) to go over. Yes it was packed, but we made the best of it! After all, we are British, and the ‘make do’ attitude is well ingrained in most of us! I believe that the committee are going to look at larger venues for the future, but that will take time. Personally, I had a thoroughly enjoyable day and the committee did a sterling job given that there were a number of unavoidable absences from the committee. Well done to all!
Results for longs: BD was Carol Conquest’s Chihohit Favourite Apollon At Storyland (Imp Blr), RBD Pauline Wills’ Dorenty Dazzlin Duncan, BPD Michelle Emmersons’ Silverchi Ray of Sunshine TAF, RBPD Leah Todd-McCoid’s Tinasjoy Norris McDogface of Rubyanlo.

Lots of closing dates are looming:
LCCC closes tomorrow (2 Feb) and CCSW closes on Monday (4 Feb). The Smoothcoat Chihuahua Club has their show on 16 March with their AGM taking place that day as well.
I thought I’d better get myself organised this week and sort by outfit for Crufts. I found a lovely jacket on eBay which I purchased for a whole £2.50. Just got to wait and see if it’s OK when it gets here. Having spent loads of money on posh jackets for Crufts in the past, I decided this year that having nearly bankrupted myself entering in the first place, I’d turn to my old trusty eBay. I await with baited breath for its arrival!
