Miniature Dachshund 2005

Judge: Tess Thomas


Championship show: I was very honoured to be asked to judge BIS at this well organised show. BIS was the Mini Longhaired Goddard’s, Ch. Minard Krystal Darque. A very impressive b/t bitch. Pretty feminine head with good length of neck running into well laid shoulders. Tight elbows, well ribbed. Strong hindquarters really driving round the ring. RBIS was Munt’s, Pipersvale Stella Artois. Pleasing red m/s. I liked her head and oval front. Good layback and tight elbows, low and level. Moving well. BPIS was Hutching’s, Molloney Zena Ghost. M/w with correct harsh coat. Pleasing head, good layback of shoulder. Tight elbows, well ribbed. Moving with good drive from behind. RBPIS was Angear’s, Ridgegrove Dancing Shadow. Compact m/l with good outline. Feminine head, well laid shoulders. Low and level. Moving confidently. BVIS was Watkison’s, Ch. Manakoora Mai-Tai. Well made 10 year old m/s with everything in the right place. Moved level and with drive.
