This is the first year that we haven’t organised Dachshund of the Year so it was wonderful for Helen to be able to handle her own dogs at this prestigious event. We had 3 dogs qualified, Mini (CH Abydachs Apparition JW) was competing the Puppy and Adult competition as she was Top Mini Long Puppy for 2012 and Runner up Top Bitch. Scarlet was competing in the Adult competition and Gadget was competing in the Veteran Competition. We had a wonderful day with Scarlet coming 3rd overall in the Adults and Gadget winning Veteran of The Year. He showed his socks off as usual and made me think we really need to show him a bit more often!!
