Having first owned a Min. Long in 1961, I still have a fondness for the variety and have watched it go through many ups and downs over the years. I have now given C.Cs. to them for over forty years and I think this must be the strangest entry I've had - where have all the puppies gone? I didn't appreciate the fact that the two largest Dachshund entries were in the same ring and that the two non-CC varieties were in a ring earlier, meaning that we had to push-on to finish before Group judging and so I apologise for the brevity of the individual critiques as time spent making notes had to be kept to a minimum. I last judged them three years ago at the Southern where I was mostly concerned at the high incidence of tummy-tappers and, although that wasn't quite so apparent in this entry, the general soundness of the hindquarters left a lot to be desired. The perennial over-crooked fronts with elbows like wing mirrors still predominate and were worse in the males with just a couple smooth over that area although fewer shoulders were 'up the neck'. Having said that, I found more decent necks overall than I had expected which was a relief as a head plonked straight onto the shoulders is not a pretty sight and destroys all the look of quality in any Dachshund. Toplines were generally O.K. as were most underlines with few really cut-up or short in ribbing. Bone was adequate in most, but I would have liked more with good-sized deep bunched feet. Heads were adequate with not too many weak forefaces and I found hardly anything to worry about concerning 'wet' eyes. Dentition was generally acceptable as was pigment with the exception of the nails in the creams - although I found far fewer over-profuse dry 'teddy bear' coats in that colour which was a pleasant surprise. Coats generally were better and I found many with what I call a working coat - short on the body and with quality feathering where the Standard asks for it. Very few had excessive coat that detracted from the outline as though the handler was dragging a flu brush around the ring! I only found a couple of kinky tails - a recessive fault that has always been in the variety - and no monorchids. It was pleasing to find ten bitches under 10lbs. and one just 8! No worries about any dogs being handled on the table and most seemed happy, or at least accepting, to be there. We had a lovely big ring with plenty of room to show off the movement of those equipped to move out with any amount of reach and drive and this was the main factor in determining a lot of the placings.

VD/B (4) 1 Youngs' Ch. Willowheath Hendrix. 7 year old B/T of good type, balanced construction, length to height proportions and a prominent forechest. His movement which was free and active keeping a hard topline made him stick in my mind for later when he ended-up with a well-deserved Res. CC. 2 Sainsburys' Boscolla The Lady Isabella. A remarkably well-pickled 13 year old cream lady who was also lovely and free-moving - quite exceptional for her age. Pleasing for head, type and outline, coat a little 'dry' but at least she had more than the judge! 3 Farmer's Jenwood Shady Spot.

JD (2) 1 Oxley's Dinkidax Justin Credible. Compact and well-covered body on this shaded red with good shoulder angulation, top and underlines and decent bone and feet - in fact quite a lot of dog in a neat, small package who moved out well, showing himself off to advantage and was well in the reckoning at the end. 2 McCarthy's Nagshall Mr. Tambourine Man. Rangier clear red with lovely coat quality. Good for head and neck with a level topline but more over-crooked in front and I preferred the multum in parvo look of the winner.

YD (3) 1 Dinkidax Justin Credible. 2 Nagshall Mr. Tambourine Man. 3 Earley's Yelva King Of The Road.

PGD (3) 1 Cooper's Jumanda's Renaissance. Well-bodied and compact B/T who moved eagerly, freely and with good width between his feet. His topline was O.K. on the table but tended to lift a little on the move. This exhibitor's dogs always seem happy to be there and to perform for her, moving freely and showing themselves off to advantage. 2 McCarthy's Nagshall Just Santana. Pleasing headed cream with lovely coat quality and held his shape a bit better on the move but not as snug in elbows. 3 Earley's Yelva Mr. Brandy Man.

LD (2) 1 Johnson's Charpurdy's Gold McNugget. Handy size, nicely proportioned B/T with good bone and feet. Well angulated rear which helps him to be a keen and eager mover and another I had in mind at the end but his coat rather detracts from the picture when it comes to the crunch. 2 McCarthy's Nagshall Oklahoma Sunrise. Another handsome cream and the best so far in the big entry from this breeder. Good for head and coat quality and well covered body. I'd prefer thicker feet although he moves very freely on them but just tends to drop a little in front on the move.

OD (5,1) 1 Angear's Ch. Ridgegrove In Disguise. Very impressive B/T who ticked most of the boxes and scored very heavily in his shoulder construction and front both standing and moving - by far the best amongst the males. All in proportion with a well-covered body, good top and underlines and out of the same mould that this breeder has consistently produced over the years - stuck to her guns with no concession to fashion. A very satisfying little dog who moved freely and well and was the most complete package of the males which made him stand out in a class of his own. CC. & BOB. 2 Graham's Ch. Jadag Heir Apparent. Most handsome chocolate dapple of lovely quality, pleasing in head and type and next-cleanest in elbows. Not the strength of hindquarters on the move of the winner, otherwise a dog I've admired for type. 3 Broad's Neertanauf Sea Magic.

GOOD CITIZEN D/B (1) 1 Paterson's Our Pride And Prejudice. Cream bitch of pleasing type and a neat size with good depth of body which is well covered. Moved out well and willingly.

MPB (2,1) 1 Rees' Yumares Xandra. 8 months B/T baby who gave a good account of herself and was worthy of a first. Good bone and feet and a level topline held on the move, although she could stride out more to advantage. Beautiful big-ribbed body.

PB (5,1) 1 McCarthy's Nagshall Love Actually. 11 months cream of pleasing type with balanced angulation both ends which enables her to move freely - best mover in the class. Good forechest, body and ribbing with a clean outline and a look of quality about her. Just pipped at the post for Best Puppy later by her litter sister, Nagshall Just So who was fourth in Junior. 2 Brooks' Lyndarlea Little Pearl. A 9 months lengthy cream with well-covered ribbing of good length. Another very free mover, but not as tidy in elbows. 3 McCarthy's Nagshall Loralei.

JB (8) A good class with keen competition. 1 Johnson's Charpurdy Just Willow. Under 10 pound girl by Hendrix of lovely size and type with a firm, sound front - in fact the first three in the class were the ones with the soundest fronts. Complementary shoulder and hindquarter angulation and very well ribbed with a classy head and neck. As pleasing on the move as on the table and put up a strong challenge later. 2 Barok Honey Bea. Light red and another who kept her shape well on the move. Good head and eye and nothing toyish about her appearance as she pushed the winner hard moving freely and well although not quite as accomplished a showgirl in projecting her qualities but greater freedom of hind movement put her over the third. 3 Cooper's Jumanda's Silver Ribbon.

YB (4) 1 Angear's Ridgegrove Bell Of The Ball. Beautiful little B/T bitch who I noted was "just like the dog" and she turned out to be his full sister from a repeat mating. All quality with a good head and neck, well-angulated clean front with no elbow protrusion, firm topline, good bone and feet and a beautiful body under her coat. Has type, quality and substance in a neat-sized package with all parts fitting and flowing - just loved her and she ended-up with her first CC. 2 McCarthy's Nagshall Sweet Molly Malone. Litter sister to Tambourine Man (two more by Hendrix) and this time black & cream. Another with a good head and eye, big body and best front so far from this much improved kennel. Also showed eagerly and moved out well. 3 Johnson's Charpurdy Just Ification.

PGB (7) Not as hot a class, but three under ten pounds including the winner. 1 Poole's Findowrie Fascination. Compact, well-bodied shaded red with lovely neat elbows, pleasing head, front and coat and moved out well. A lot of goodness in a small package! 2 McCarthy's Nagshall Rythym Of Love. Lengthier black and cream with a classy look about her. Good head and neck and well-ribbed body - again an improvement in shoulder placement and construction. 3 Latham-Jacksons' Urishay Sweet Pea.

LB (14,1) A much more competitive class and not easy to separate the first three. 1 Woodville-Shone's Hanishan Little Red Madam. A new dog and owner to me. Rich shaded red 2 year old of handy size and proportions with everything in balance. Good head and eye with a clean, firm-fitting shoulder that was well-placed and angulated, giving her a neck. Good length and breadth of ribbing and the hind angulation complemented the front. Moved very well and pushed the ultimate winners hard. Half sister to the third. 2 Angear's Ridgegrove Polly Anna. Another lovely bitch from this kennel, same mould as the other two and all three by Cuddley Dudley. This time a clear red with a pleasing head, good forechest, well-angulated both ends, roomy well-made body of correct proportions and moved correctly and with ease and flow. Both these girls should gain titles with any amount of luck. 3 Brooks' Hanishan Eezy Magic Nite at Lyndarlea.

OB (11,2) Another pleasing class with some interesting girls from which to chose and these last two classes made-up for the dearth of puppies, but then the competition and quality has always been stronger in the bitches. As a bonus, the first two were under 10lbs. as was the fifth. 1 Holmes' Tammera Just Elegant. 4 year old light shaded red I loved as a baby last time I judged, giving classes to both her and her litter brother; he is now made-up and she deserves to be and, if one could judge on sentiment, I'd have loved to have done it! All of a piece with nothing jarring the hands from her sound frontal construction over her length and spring of rib to her well let-down rear. Covered with a quality coat and moved and showed so correctly and well. Res. CC. 2 Latham-Jackson's Urishay Geranium. Older full-sister to Sweet Pea and I was dying to find out who they were! B/T of good type and length to height proportions with a hard topline, good forechest and length of ribbing. Moved very freely and well and was close-up to the winner but not quite as 'tidy' coming at me. 3 Shutt's Longort Cassie Royale of Donnadoon.
