June 21, 2008 was hot and scattered thunderstorms rolled over the showring. For Titan, a Black dog in a fur coat...hot weather is no fun!
As a light shower swept over us, we entered the ring....Titan got a sniff of cool air on the misty breeze, picked up his head and MOVED OUT!
This is when his fluid gait and smooth motion can really be seen. Not when he's walking, but at a crisp cantor.
Judge Edna (Katie) Gammill, a dachshund breeder herself for many years...saw Titan's terrific movement and called him out for Winner's Dog! Then in the Breed Competition she awarded him Best of Winners!! Titan had his first Major win and a very kind comment from the judge...
"This is everything I look for in a dachshund. Especially that reach and drive that is missing in so many of the exhibits these days".
Needless to say, Titan and I were thrilled and happy. He had defeated 8 good competitors for this win...and done it on one of the hottest days of the summer!
