Ch. Midernoch Gala Fiesta “Fiesta”

Fiesta was bred and owned by Diana MacPherson and Patricia Ridgard of Midernoch Dachshunds. Fiesta was one of the Midernoch dachshunds I was fortunate enough to have had in my life. It was through the dachshunds that Pat and Diana gave me the ring experience which a Novice handler needed. Many a days were spent with Pat and Diana either at dog shows or at their kennel learning various aspects related to running a successful show kennel. Thank you Pat and Diana for everything!!
