Last weekend Northern Counties Dachshund held their Ch show back to back with Leeds ch in the grounds of Harewood Estate, Hound day was Saturday. On the Friday evening up here in Yorkshire we had a big thunderstorm with hailstones as big As marbles, some bigger.
With some judging starting at 8.30am some of us got to the benches before the rain came down again but cleared up and the sun came out.
It was first time for the Northern Counties to have their show with Leeds; there were a few hiccups mainly with Dachshunds being in two tents, but discussions are taking place to rearrange for next year for the Dachshunds to be altogether.
