Thank you to the committee for my invitation to judge  I enjoyed my day and would like to thank my steward Elizabeth Harrap for her efficiency which made the whole thing much more pleasurable.


I felt that the quality in the bitches was far superior to the dogs even allowing for the fact that they were numerically stronger today.


In general I felt that too many had rather toyish heads with incorrect eye shape and the dentition on some was interesting to say the least .  I am not a mouth fanatic but this was taken in account with some of my placings. Hind action on many lacked  drive  and I would have liked to see a better layback of shoulder and length of upper arm the lack of which resulted in dogs  being out at elbow.  A large number of exhibits didn’t have any muscle tone at all and I wonder how much exercise some dogs are given.  The correct amount of exercise can only improve their ability to move out well.  Coats in general could be harsher and even on a well stripped dog it always shows in the leg hair.  Presentation on some could be better.


I find when reading back my critiques I often repeat the same things but since I try to judge to judge to a type I make no apology for this. You can only ever please a few people on the day but without exception my placings were taken with good sportsmanship and for this I thank all the exhibitors.


Veteran dog/bitch 6 (1).  1. Haywards C. Foxearth Foto Copy 10 years young and still out moving many today.  Lovely balance excels in front and has a topline I suspect many would envy on much younger animals.

2. Kemps Metcroft Diamonds and dust at Vossmead.  Rangier but still nice type.  Good layback of shoulder which showed on the move.  Good coat. 3.Hill & Nialls Drakesleat Material Girl at Kanstal.


Good Citizens 2. 1.Stewards Aradan Would You Adam N’Evit . Better overall shape on this bitch although not such a good coat as 2.  Bassodon Dolce A rangier bitch that lacked the topline of winner.


Minor Puppy (4). 1. Thorn Andrews If Looks Could Kill.  Liked overall balance on this young dog.  Correct height to length ratio . Still a baby and a bit overawed which affected his movement but did enough in final move round to win class. 2. Kents Barratini Teddy boy At Lokmadi.Again I liked the type and overall balance.  Better head and expression and harsh coat. Just preferred hind action of winner. 3. Marston Teals Lordscairnie Moment Of Love.


 Puppy  (2) 1. Barratini Teddyboy At Lokmadi. 2. Millers Pulsaz Basil.Very hard coated dog with good head and lovely tight feet.  Preferred movement of class winner.


Junior  3 (1).  1.Roses Ridanflight Ricardo. Excellent overall balance and type.  Nice head and expression which flowed into good front with lovely tight elbows.  Harsh coat with the tight feet that often come with good coat.  Moved out with style and drive. Pressed hard in challenge just preferred tailset of CC winner. Res CC.

2. Neates Beaucat Eddie Tor.  Not the outgoing temperament of class winner.  Lacked upper arm which showed in the movement.


Yearling (0)


Post Grad (1) 1. Stewards Bassoden Dolce.


Limit 4 (1). 1. Dunns Barratini Danz On To Ashridge.  This dog really moved out today – straight both coming and going whilst retaining outline at all times.  Good head and neck with tight elbows which always shows in the front movement. An honest workmanlike dog with good balance.  Well handled to win CC. 2. Haywards Foxearth Fiddler On The Roof.  Lovely type.  Excellent head and eye.  Excelled in front construction. Moving a bit A frame behind today which cost him the class. 3.Haywards Taree Scolville At Wirefusion.


Open. (5). 1. Thorn Andrews Ch Drakeleat Win Tin Tin. Won this class on overall type and balance.  Good height to length ratio with straight movement both fore and aft. 2. Punters Ch Welcumen Jeremy Again a nice type with good front complete with tight elbows.  Close decision. 3.Phillips Curtisy Boogy Woogy.



Minor Puppy Bitch. 4 (1). 1. Roses Ridanflight Reflection.  Best front construction in class.  Still very babyish and this reflects in the topline but

lovely type. 2. Blackburns Stargang Compania Faberge A very raw baby at moment rather loose in front which will tighten given time. 3. Avard & Petrys Rieyonne Billie Jean.


Puppy (8)  1. Russells Russteck I Dreamed A Dream.  Caught my eye as soon as she entered the ring.  Complete package – dachshund in  min iature complete with harsh coat. Nice head and expression coupled with good front construction and good length of ribbing.  Tight feet and freedom of movement completed the picture. Obviously still a baby and I will watch her progress with interest.  B.P. and B.P.I.S.

2. Blackburn Bennett Stargang Walkin On Sunshine.  Good overall type and balance.  Nice front construction with good length of ribbing.  Preferred hind action of winner. 3.Selleys UBU Crackling Rose For Heleanne.


Jnr. Bitch 9 (1). 1. Russells Russteck I Dreamed A Dream. 2. Thorn Andrews Drakeleat Fingers Crossed. Nice type again.  Good head flowing into compact body coat not as harsh as winner . 3. Marston Teals Lorscairnie Rythm Of Love.


Yearling Bitch. (4). 1. Jones Bimini From Russia With Love.  Won class on overall balance.  Good front  and moved out well. 2. Kays Kaytian Hunnie Ryder.  Rangier bitch with good front and ribbing but lacked hind angulation of winner. 3. Tylers Drakesleat See Scent.


Post Grad Bitch. (8). 1. Jones Bimini Out Of The Blue.  A well balanced bitch with neat front construction and ribbing going well back.  Moved out well both coming and going. Well presented. 2.  Garritys Stargang Apple Crumble.  Another tidy bitch that moved out well.  Just preferred front construction on winner. 3. Billinghursts Drakesleat Scent Suell For Jiljac.


Limit Bitch 10 (2). 1. McCleod, Janjac Mac Zeen.  Compact bitch of good type.  Good head flowing into well constructed front.  Moved out well retaining outline at all times. 2. Jones Bimini Starlight Express.  Similar remarks apply but  this bitch had more length of hock which affected her hind drive. 3. Haywards Foxearth Fatma Salkan.



Open Bitch. 8 (1). 1. Thorn Andrews Ch Drakesleat Scent Sybil.  This is a bitch that you appreciate when you actually go over her.  Compact with good front construction which flows on into well angulated hind quarters.  Her construction means that she moves straight both coming and going and holds her outline at all times.  I forgave her slightly untidy coat because of her basic soundness. C.C. B.O.B. and Res B.I.S.  2. Marston Teals Lordscairnie Love Of My Life.  A very nice bitch with excellent front construction which again flows into good bodyshape and allows her free flowing movement.  In her underwear today Res CC.. 3. Blackburns Stargang Moll Flanders.
