2019 Open Show
Our Open Show was held on 5th May, shortly before the actual 70th Anniversary of the
founding of the club on 22nd May 1949. We are saving the big celebrations for our Championship Show in
November, but we had a very successful and enjoyable show at the Brackley Leisure Centre in Northamptonshire.
Lynn Hill judged Smoothcoats for us and Emma Huntley the Longcoats, while our BIS judge was Mrs Edith Lynch.
Best in Show was Mrs Beverley Sutton's smoothcoat Now Or Never De L'isle Au Vert Coteau Nikitos,
while Reserve went to another smooth and winner of Best Veteran in Show, Jacks' Ch Amarose Tink
Attitude. Sue Lee's longcoat puppy Barwater Agatha Christie of Ridgehawk was Best Puppy in Show.
Having moved the date of our club's financial year-end, we were also able to hold our
Annual General Meeting at the show, allowing many additional members to attend. There were no nominations
for office. Ms Hazel Senior and Mr James Farrugia have stepped down but the rest of the committee, and
the Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Hon Secretary and Hon Treasurer all agreed to continue. The committee is now
considering candidates to be co-opted to fill the remaining vacancies.
2018 Championship Show

With the continuing popularity of Chihuahuas, people desperate to obtain a puppy are sending
off large amounts of money to people they've never met for dogs they've never seen.
Sadly many of them never receive the puppy they were promised, or ever see their money
again. Read our page Buying A Chihuahua to
see how the Club can put you in touch with Club members who may have puppies for sale.
