Lancashire and Cheshire Dachshund Club 2012
Judge: Sue Ergis
My thanks to the officers and committee for their
hospitality and my steward Kath for her excellent work. I have to say I was a
little disappointed to find so many stuffy necks, upright shoulders, loose
elbows and flat feet. This led to choppy and sluggish movement, the breed
standard calls for the movement to be free flowing with a long stride which is
what I was looking for. On a brighter note, I thought the heads were good,
conical with good eye shape and ear placement. Ribbing and hindquarters were
also fairly good. MPD (3,1) 1. McCarthy's, Nagshall Just
Santana. BPIB. 2. McCarthy's, Nagshall Boogie Shoes. Shaded cream litter
bothers. Preferred first over second for his length and movement, they both
have good heads with gentle expressions. The winner has a neat forehand with
tight elbows, well ribbed and sound hindquarters. He moved freely with
excellent hind movement, where he scored over his brother. PD
(2,1) 1 McCarthy's Nagshall Walking in the Sun. Masculine head on this boy,
nice almond eye shape. Elbows could fit better, good ribbing and a level
topline. Rather stilted in his hind movement. JD (9) 1 Walters'
Ralines Just Ozzie. Liked this boy for his outline and balance. Lovely head and
expression, good neck and shoulder placement. Tight elbows, well ribbed and a
level topline. Nice hind angulation, moved freely with style. Res CC. 2
Roberts'Denver Darling Jackpot. Good reach of neck, elbows fitting neatly
against a good ribcage. Good depth of body, topline has tendency to drop on the
stack but levels out on the move. Hind movement a shade wide on the day. 3
