Dachshunds

MIN WIRE HAIRED


I enjoyed this variety and thank exhibitors for the wonderful entry and the sporting way in which my decisions were received. I think the breed has improved quite a lot and we are losing the straight stifles that were so prevalent. Many were too narrow in front - something to watch out for.

VD. (6). 1. Fultonís, Ch. Bothlyn Master Craftsman. A grand fellow rising 12 years. Good forechest and shoulders. Correct hind angulation. He moved with drive. He was obviously enjoying his day out. 2. Muellerís, Ch. Drakesleat Fred Bare at Rabymere. A well balanced dog. Soundly constructed. Level topline. Moved well. Losing teeth. 3. Dunstallís, Ch. Samlane. Zingaro of Metcroft. A bright lad. Was running up on the day and tail appeared high set. Moved out well.

SpPD. (4). 1. Blackburnís, Stargang Micky Finn. A very promising youngster who will, no doubt, get his title. Excellent forechest, with good layback of shoulder. Well ribbed, firm topline, good hindquarters, good harsh coat, moved well. Res CC. 2 Wood and Hardyís Wildstar Webster. Another first class exhibit, liked him a lot. He had all the good points of the winner, but not quite so settled. 3 Mortonís Freecloud Kwikly Does It at Cotherstone. Good forechest, well ribbed body, well angulated hindquarters. Moved soundly.

SpJD (4) 1 Fultonís Jonkaths Time Traveller to Bothlyn. Good head, strong neck on well placed shoulders. Excellent forechest, well ribbed body. Parallel movement front and rear and moved out with great style. 2 Gauntís Bigglesmere Ron Weasley. Dark brindle. Good ribbing and hind angulation. Moved out well. 3 Fletcherís Spiredals Winnats Pocket. A top weight youngster, he was disinclined to move out, but appeared sound.

SpYD (6) 1 Jonkathís Time Traveller to Bothlyn. 2 Dunkís Loretto Snuffbox. Very nice type. Good coat, masculine head and well placed shoulders. Good hindquarters, moved soundly. 3 Fraserís Stargang Clown Prince of Donlaynes. Very pleasing to go over. Good forechest and shoulders. Firm topline, moved out well.

PGD (12) 1 Hassell and McLeodís Janjac Costa Pack It. Will do a lot of winning. He is so sound and well balanced. Good length with long ribbing. Very good hindquarters, parallel movement coming and going. 2 Millerís Scotmariner Skua. Another very nice sound dog. Good front and shoulders. Good ribbing and firm topline. Moved well. 3 Fraserís Stargang Clown Prince of Donlaynes.

LD (9) 1 Gorton Bakerís Axters Bindaree Von Kotch. Gave a good outline. Nice head, good length of body with excellent ribbing. He moved out very well with good hind thrust. Well handled. 2 Horswellís Drakesleat Von Der Full. Smaller type, would like a little more of him, but is very well constructed throughout. Not the easiest dog to show. 3 Russellís Kevocklea Twelfth Knight. Good head and shoulders. Nive length of body and moved soundly.

OD (11) 1 Danceís Ch Ir Ch Emem Nipper in the Air. LOng and low and very well balanced - catches the eye immediately. He is so good to go over. Prominent forechest, excellent ribbing, very good hind angulation. Firm topline, moved absoluately true. CC. 2 Horswell and Kubotaís Jap Ch Drakesleat JP Baro Trier (Imp). A very sound dog. Good front with correct width between the forelegs. Well ribbed body, good topline. Taller type than the winner. 3 Wilbergís Ch Stargang Xcaliber at Kanix. Very nice type. Good harsh coat. Good ribbing, firm topline and moved well. A worthy Champion.

Good Citizen D (3) 1 Loretto Snuffbox. 2 Seidenbusch and Schulzeís Loretto Prince of Spades to Doubledax. Good shoulders and hindquarters. Sound mover. 3 Dunnís Ir Ch Cairoís Tight Lastic. Very nice shape, but lost on movement.

Vet B (2) 1 Priceís Ch Samlane Ariadne. I have judged her before and she is still as good to go over 2 years later. Long, low and level. Good all through and a sound mover. 2 Forrestís Clannad Supa Dupa among Morailmadadh. Not the front of the winner, or so strong in the head, but has a well ribbed body and good hindquarters. Moved well.

SpPB (9) 1 Kennedyís Moonshe Modesty Blaze. Well coated. Good head and eye. Well placed shoulders. Nice forechest and excellent ribbing. Moved well and kept a very good outline. 2 Curtisí Curtisey Rough at the Top. Nice well made bitch, close up to the winner. However, on the day she was roaching her back, otherwise little to fault. 3 Presnailís Taree Campbells Creek. Well balanced. Good front and rear, but still at that sloppy puppy stage. Just needs to firm up.

SpJB (14) 1 Gauntís Bigglesmeres Kate Weasley. Very sound, I liked her overall construction. Excellent hindquarters which she certainly used on the move. Parallel movement coming and going. 2 Horswellís Drakesleat Why Knot. Lovely type, liked her a lot. She has everything you want, but needs to firm up in hindquarters. 3 Crossmanís Janter Jen Tillmans Relish. Similar type with good front, nice spring of rib, well angulated hindquarters. Moved soundly.

SpYB (16) 1 Wilbergís Stargang Picket Line at Kanix. Liked her when I awarded her Best Puppy at the Great Joint, and she is maturing well. Keeps a super outline at all times. Harsh coat, lovely head and good length of neck. Good front and ribbing, firm topline. Was on her toes the whole time. Super parallel movement. Litter sister to PD. What a successful litter. Res CC. 2 Blackburnís Stargang Blue Frackles. Dapple, a little lower to the ground than the winner, but has all her qualities. I think she is very promising. The use of a Finnish import has certainly worked for this kennel. 3 Haddenís Wellbury Kalinka. Was so good to go over on the table. So soundly constructed, but the handler needs to have more control on the move.

PGB (15) 1 Fultonís Bothlyn Blue Mist. Very good forechest and shoulders, as did the other exhibits from this kennel. Good spring of rib and short loin. Strong, well angulated hindquarters. Moved very well, as one would expect with such sound construction. 2 Hutchingsí Molloney Unique Recipe. Another lovely exhibits. Good coat, good length of body and excellent ribbing. Good top and underlines, and another good mover. 3 Haddenís Wellbury Tears of Angels. Very nice type. Litter sister to 3rd in previous class, and again so sound and well constructed. I am sure they will do a lot of winning.

LB (19) 1 Barneyís Varrami Vera Right. The star of the day. What a showgirl, super temperament. You would find it hard to fault her construction. She is strong and well muscled, and looks as if she could work all day. Parallel movement front and rear and she really drives around the ring. I was pleased to award her her 2nd CC and Best of Breed. 2 Blackburnís Stargang Karaoke Queen. A quality bitch, so good to go over on the table. My only critisism was that she was moving close. 3 Amosís Taree Zoya. A nice type. Good front and shoulders, but not the ribbing of those above. Moved out well.

OB (15) 1 Horswell and Kubotaís Jap Ch Drakesleat JP Simon Holly (Imp). A confusing name on a very sound bitch! Good front and shoulders and good top and underline. Good length of ribbing and short loin. Moved well. 2 Horswellís Drakesleat See Voo Play. An equally good bitch. Good head and eye. Harsh coat. Well filled front and good layback of shoulder. Short loin, strong hindquarters, moved out well. 3 Vincenzi and Bavchalís It Ch Itís Me Del Gotha. Completed a trio of lovely bitches. Very good all through, I am sure she could gain her English title. Was very well presented and handled.

Good Citizen B (2) 1 Seidenbusch and Schulzeís Larklinns Ruby Tuesday at Doubledax. Nice little bitch, but was being difficult for her owner.
