 I had an enjoyable day judging my own variety of Dachshund. Some dogs found the ground a problem and also in the adjain the adjacent ring they found the Borzois either attractive or intimidating which seemed to take their mindmindminds off the purpose of their visit. As in the other varieties, there are some dogs with short upper arms and incorrect sincorrect position and placement of shoulders which is so important. There are also many that lack the typical forechest forechest required – too many terrier fronts and although rear angulation was much better many lacked the rear driving actdriving action. On the whole coats were good. All dogs were well covered and some were well within the desired weight. There were very few that did not have the required ground clearance so no excuse for not covering the ground.I’m passing on these observations as I love this variety of the miniatures and just want the best for them and their future. In my mind they do not seem to have advanced over the last few years, in some aspects they haven’t evhave even stood still. Saying that there are some lovely typical wires still around and I was thrilled with all my principal winners.

MPD (2) 1 Blackburn’s Shantallah Diamond Dealer At Stargang. A sound well balanced 6 month brindle with good shoulders, neck and front and good rear angulation and body constructi construction. Once he decided to move he went well maintaining a firm topline and lovely outline. One to watch. 2 Jones’ Shantallah Black Diamond Among Corlita. Another 6 month brindle with a lot of developing to do. Although he moved out well he didn’t have the forechest of the winner and also lost his topline on the move.

PD (6) 1 Kugow & Holt’s Waldmeister Samuel. A very promising 9 month harsh coated brindle. A little taller than I prefer, but won this class on his sound movement and overall body construction. Lovely head, good strong dentition. Good reach of neck into well muscled body and in hard condition for one so young. Front and rear angulation OK would like to see a hammier back end but really came into his own on the move and flowed round the ring. Will follow his progress with interest. Best Puppy Dog. 2 Rose & Williams’ Sandanca Addison At Tythe. 9 month darker brindle with well proportioned head, good forechest and well covered body. A sound young man but couldn’t match the overall movement of Samuel. 3 Otter’s Portalutra De Fi Ant.

JD (4,2) 1 Corner’s Holrik Mister Mischief. A compact, well boned and good coated dark brindle with good head, neck, forechest and topline. Moved out well but tended to fly his tail. Soundly constructed. 2 Baxter’s Hotwire Didja Ever. Another brindle with a slightly high tail set which affected her topline when moving. Good head but was a little straight in shoulder and rear angulation so didn’t drive round the ring and couldn’t match the winner’s movement.

PGD (6) 1 Baxter’s Kapodach Love Me Tender at Hotwire. This dog really impressed me as he had a really good outline at all times, nothing overdone, and also moved so soundly. He has the same sire as both my dog and bitch ticket winners which is Ch. Drakesleat Jp Trier Winshoten one I have always admired – he is certainly passing on his attributes. Good head and reach of neck, well placed shoulders and good front construction and rear angulation. Correct ground clearance. Well balanced and true in movement all round. Handled well. Res. DCC. 2 Dance’s Deepdax Overdraft Too Far Emem. Another quality dog which I loved but he did not appreciate the Borzois in the adjacent ring and didn’t show to his full ability. It was a close decision between these two dogs but Love Me Tender came into his own on the move and didn’t worry about the Borzois. Well boned dark brindle with a lot going for him. Similar remarks apply as to the winner. 3 Young & Otter’s Nordach Mr. Muffin Of Tarkus.

LD (3,1) 1 Price’s Samlane Tetley. Litter brother to my Res BCC and similar in type. Super brindle harsh jacket right down to his tight feet. Lovely head and eye moved out so soundly keeping his topline at all times. Just looks a little too workmanlike in his showing and moving and needs to put some animation into it to show off his qualities. Nevertheless, a worthy winner. 2 Blackburn-Bennett’s Wyndsmoor Mister Chips. I liked this young man he has a lot going for him. Good head, neck and forechest. Lovely body outline when stacked with correct shoulders and hind angulation. Good coat and well handled and presented. Firm topline which he kept on the move but his hind movement was very erratic and that let him down. Perhaps he couldn’t cope with the longer grass.

OD (3) 1 Thorn Andrews’ Ch Drakesleat Win A Lot. A real stallion and one to be proud of and in my opinion a great asset to the breed in general. No wonder he has done all the winning - a most impressive dog. Pleased to hear that he went 3rd in the Champion Stakes. At the present time I think he stands out amongst the min. wire dogs that are being shown today. His movement is so sound from all angles, correct and effortless because he is well constructed. Just reaches out in front and drives from behind keeping his outline. Masculine head, good reach of neck into correct layback of shoulder and length of upper arm. Good length of ribbing, low hocks and well bent stifles with firm topline and well muscled. Pleased to award him the DCC but had to give way to his litter sister today for BOB but what a litter by Winshoten. Lucky breeder. 2 Black’s Bassodon Bilbie. I have always admired Bilbie and he has matured so well into a very sound dog that the owner should be proud of owning – just bad luck he is up against such stiff competition at the present time – his time will come. Pressed hard for the Res. DCC. Well balanced, unexaggerated brindle with good masculine head, length of neck and ribbing. Prominent forechest and correct rear angulation topped off with a firm topline standing and moving and a steady temperament. Lost out in the challenge for the RCC because Love Me Tender, had a stronger, driving rear movement on the day but placed him over Fillibeg, a dog that I also like, because he wasn’t coping in the longer grass so well. But both are quality dogs and well handled and presented. 3 Russell’s Russteck Fillibeg JW.

MPB (2,1) 1 Young’s Portalutra Princess. A real baby of just 6 months who showed like a trooper and covered the ground and managed the grass better than many of the older dogs. She stood alone but well deserved her placing. Pretty feminine head and good body outline. Everything there in a small package just waiting to develop.

PB (3,1) 1 Blackburn-Bennett’s Stargang Lady Gaga. Another youngster who covered the ground so well and enjoyed every minute. Lovely, happy temperament a joy to see. 9 month harsh coated brindle with good head, length of neck, shoulders and strong rear angulation which she used to drive round the ring keeping her topline at all times. Looked a picture when stacked. I shall follow her progress with interest. Very promising. BP. 2 Baxter’s Lordscairnie Gypsy Love. Another happy brindle but she tended to fly her tail and lost her topline on the move. Sound bitch that moved out well with her owner but was very straight in front and behind and couldn’t match Lady Gaga’s general body construction and outline. Needs to settle.

JB (9) Difficult to judge. Although there were good dogs in the class I had to disregard hind movement as the majority were all over the place. Whether it was the ground that troubled them I do not know. Shall watch them later in the year on a hard surface to see whether they change. 1 Meredith’s Deepdax Credit Crunch. 2 Poxon’s Kapodach Izzi Miyaki. Both very similar and my remarks apply to both bitches. A pleasing head, decent neck and forechest and good rear and hind angulation. Overall sound body covered in a good jacket. Just preferred Credit Crunch’s rear movement. 3 Hunt’s Mustdach Lucky In Love.

PGB (9,2) A good class. I was splitting hairs between the first two. 1 Blackburn’s Shardagang Mayhem. Another good bitch from this kennel. So well handled and presented. Good head and eye, prominent forechest and general body outline. Everything in the right place with good shoulders and rear angulation. Well balanced. Moved round the ring smoothly and with drive. 2 Marston-Teal’s Lordscairnie Enduring Love. Another pleasing bitch and the same remarks apply. Just preferred Mayhem’s tighter feet and hind thrust on the day. A well handled and presented quality bitch. 3 Russell’s Russteck Perchance To Dream.

LB (12,2) A good class with varying types. I was spoilt for choice and some good bitches went cardless. 1 Price’s Samlane Touch Of Gin. A sound brindle bitch with excellent coat, litter sister to the LD winner. One I have admired but who often finds difficulty in showing off her attributes. But today she was in the mood and cooperated with her handler and couldn’t be denied Res BCC. A well proportioned taller type but everything in the right place. A lovely, well balanced outline standing. Good head, forechest, reach of neck and shoulder placement. Well ribbed body with well angulated hind quarters which enabled her to move round the ring with ease keeping a firm topline. 2 Thorn Andrews’ Starhill Lady Of The Lake At Drakesleat. A close decision between the first two who were completely different types but quality bitches. A confident choc. with a lovely outline stacked and moving. I liked her head, front, reach of neck and general outline. Good topline and underline and good length of ribbing and rear angulation. Moved out well with her handler, just a tad close coming and going. I placed her over the 3rd another good lighter brindle, as she tended to straighten when stacked and I preferred the hammier hindquarters of Lady of the Lake. 3 Mcleod’s Sidelock Do I Look Bovvered.

OB (7,1) Another quality class. All a credit to their owners in presentation and handling. 1 Thorn Andrews’ Drakesleat Winsum Losesum. BCC "Her 3rd" & BOB. This lovely bitch took my eye as soon as she entered the ring and I didn’t know that she was the litter sister to Win A lot until after she had been judged. Just my type. She has everything that her litter brother has but put together in a smaller feminine frame and with more flowing lines and moved and showed in a relaxed and confident manner. That is why I placed her over her famous brother on the day even if she wasn’t quite at her best being handled by someone unknown in the challenge. I had seen enough. A beautifully balanced and refined outline which she held on the move and really drove round the ring and looked good from every angle. Good head, forechest and neck which flowed down into well placed shoulders. Lovely hind angulation and good body proportions and ground clearance. Elegant but looked as if she could do a day’s work. BCC & BOB. 2 Dance’s  Emem Sunny Spells.  Another quality, larger cast, sound and honest brindle bitch that I liked a lot. Good head and reach of neck, correct shoulders and well covered body with good hind angulation. Would like a little more forechest to complete the picture. Well presented and moved out soundly and with drive with her handler. I placed her over Black Rose, a worthy b/t champion, as she didn’t handle the ground so well and wasn’t fully cooperating with her handler today. 3 Fulton & Fulton’s Ch Bothlyn Black Rose.
