Thank you for the invitation to judge my favourite variety of dachshunds at this super show.  Also thanks to my two lady stewards.

Great pity that paignton was on the following day.  However, a good entry for the present time.  I was shocked to find such a deterioration in the last three years from my last appointment.  Having shown, bred and judged for over 30 years.  My opinion is that the breed is going back wards apart from a few kennels.  Out of 15 males only six were of the quality and soundness that is required.  50% of the entry was close in front. bowed and toeing in behind.  Short upper arms are also prevalent.  Many teeth were filthy. especially canines.  Mouths have improved somewhat, also coats in the majority.  Bitches were much better overall, even then many otherwise lovely girls were close in front and bowed and toed in behind.  Only a couple of shy ones.  The puppies were a delight especially the Minor Puppies.  So happy.  Much prefer this than a cardboard cutout.  My Top and ain winners pleased me very much.

1st: Howells, Fallowmill Sydney TAF

What a nice start. Very promising boy, Just right for his age.  Happy Temperament, Masculine Head.  Correct construction throughout.  Moves freely with a good topline.  Just needs maturity only 6 1/2 months.  Lovely BPD
2nd: Feetham, Kimbleholme Jackpot

Good head, Shade longer than 1. Cuts up a shade.  Covers the ground when moving.  Just needs to tighten in front and behind at the moment, but very young.  Hopefully will come with maturity.

One I have admired from ringside, just my type.  Another by my BOB winner, good shoulders and ribbing.  Well angulated quarters.  Very attractive profile on moving.  Just a shade close in front today.

Junior Dog (3 Entries) Abs: 0

This was a difficult class as they were all close coming towards me.
1st: Lewis, Bastlefords Toffee Crips At Trixhund

Very pleasing red/br, with a super coat.  Well angulated shoulders, Strong backend.  Looked well moving keeping a good topline.  Would prefer better front movement, but overall a nice boy.

2nd: Spence & Kirkwood-Emery, Helydon Goharley At Cicada

Br. Masculine Head.  Good layback of shoulder but would prefer more length of upperarm.  Again movement was fine until coming towards me, too close I'm afraid.

2nd Hunt,  Earthsea's Billy The Kid
Br. with a decent coat.  Strong well angulated hindquarters. His shoulders are not correct subsequently he lost his front on moving.  However he was one of the few who moved with width coming towards me.

1st: Nicholson,  Eastriding Attimo at Kingsheath
Very dark brindle with a coat of really good texture.  Unfortunately another one with incorrect shoulders and straight front.

Limit Dog (4 Entries) Abs: 0

A much better Class.
1st: Thorn Andrews, Drakesleat Hostile Takeova

Well constructed male.  Typical type from this kennel.  Decent front, shoulder of correct angles.  Reacy neck and well carried back ribbing.  A little unsettled at first on moving but settled well covering plenty of ground. Shade lower to ground than my CC winner but a pleasing Dog.  RCC
2nd: Barney,  Verrami En Trac

This boy was one of the few who did not falter with the very uneven ground.  Shade taller than 1.  Typy with a decent layback of shoulder. Ribbing is carried well back.  Moved well with decent hind width but a shade close in front.
3rd: Grant,  Barratini Ted Astaire at Granhoward

1st: Rose, Ch Ridanflight Ricardo

Light/Br.  Beautifully presented with lovely harsh tight coat.  Excellent bone all through.  I have admired this lovely dog from his first appearance.  Lovely head with an arrogant expression. Well filled front.  Correct shoulders, no short upper arm here.  His front and rear movement is an example for soundness.  Good width all through.  Coped well on the uneven ground.  CC & BOB
2nd Stancliffe,  Portalutra Mr Thomas Of Tarkus
Lot to Like.  Handsome head, shade taller than 1.  Free mover but sadly too close in front.

1st: Black, Ch Bassodon Bilbie
So pleased to be able to go over this lad.  He is looking super, still worthy of winning CC's.  Unfortunately as with many of the lovely bitches i only had 1CC and 1 RCC.  Satisfying to go over.  In immaculate coat and body condition.  Pleasing front and lengthy ribbing.  Well angulated rear which have strong correct movement.  He covered the ground and showed the youngsters how it should be done.

Lovely Class of babies.  Such fun to judge.  All had lovely happy temperaments.  Also although very young, width front and rear seems to be much better than most.

1st:  Morris,  Pennywave Uptown Girl

7 mths, Such a delightful baby.  Just my cup of tea.  Lovely size for age and although her coat needs to fully come through, it is the correct texture.  Very drk/br, wonderful feminine head with expression. Well filled front, lovely length of neck leading into correct shoulders and length of ribbing.  Correctly angulated hindquarters.  She moved with style and freedom for one so young.  Shall watch her career with interest.  BPIB  Quite a close decision between her and the dog puppy.
2nd: Dyer, Dyer & Oddie, Banburg Svetlana At Sharnphilly

9 mths, Another promising girl, very good conformation all through.  Pretty head. Moved freely with verve keeping a good topline at all times.

1st: Blackburn,  Stargang Liberty Belle

More lovely girls.  Hopefully will all breed on.  Light Br.  Very typical happy puppy from this old established kennel.  Super front and shoulders.  Ribbing well sprung and carried well back.  Keeps a good outline at all times.  A shade out of coat at the moment but this is only temporary.  Promising.
2nd: Daykin,  Barratini Hot Stuff

Drk/Br Very attractive puppy.  Super coat very well presented.  Not too big and very feminine.  Pleasing conformation, although would prefer a touch more front.  Looked well on the move, although did not like the ground at all.  When she settled she presented a nice picture.
3rd: Hopper,  Arbennik Sootalina at Brynfaw

Junior Bitch (7 Entries) Abs: 0

More typical promising bitches.
1st: Russell,  Russteck So Fair A Dream

Just out of puppy.  What a cracker.  Loved her.  Rich Br.  Immaculate harsh coat which this kennel seems to excel in producing.  Such a lovely size, well boned.  Very well developed front, well angulated shoulders.  Super head carriage when moving.  Showed like a veteran.  Her movement is an example to aim for.  Very well done.
2nd: Thorn Andrews,  Drakesleat Win Da Mere

Love the names this exhibitor makes up.  Typical typy girl.  Very promising.  She has an excellent front and rear.  Good width all through.  Not as happy with the ground as 1 but very sound.

Almost black, good shoulders and neckline.  Would prefer a better underline.  Excellent coat texture.  Looked well moving in profile.  But Toes in hind movement unfortunately.

Post Graduate Bitch (8 Entries) Abs: 0
1st: Kirkwood & Kirkwood,  Helydon Fabulous Freya

Light Br.  Quite taken with this girl, not noticed her before.  Needs to carry less weight as until you go over her she appears stuffy in neck.  Also her coat is of excellent texture but rather long.  On examination she is very pleasing.  So sound and well boned.  Lovely oval front.  Correct head, Shoulders and ribbing.  Keeps a lovely shape on moving.  One of the minority that excels in movement.  Good hind and not close in front like many.
2nd: Blackburn,  Stargang Compania Faberge

Another pleasing typy girl from this kennel.  Well developed front and follow through of ribbing.  Pretty head.  Correctly angulated both ends.  Really covers the ground when moving.  Coat not as harsh as 1.
3rd: Marston-Teal,  Lordscairnie Rhythm Of Love

Limit Bitch (4 Entries) Abs: 0
1st: Hayward,  Foxearth Fatma Salkan

Loved this feminine red girl.  Such a friendly happy dachshund.  Tail never stopped wagging.  Super coat, lovely size.  Well filled front, correct ribbing and strong quarters.  Correctly angulated shoulders. Well handled and a sound mover.
2nd Morris,  Banburg Black Opal at Stargang

Attractive bitch, pleasing all through, correct mover in profile and going away but shade close coming towards me.  Didn't appreciate the ground as much as 1st.
3rd Mobley,  Jakanem What You Will

1st: Thorn Andrews,  Ch Drakesleat Scent Sybil

Well known lady.  So feminine, really well constructed and very pleasing to go over.  One of those which when you go over them just flows from head to tail.  Excellent front.  Shoulders are well angulated.  Lengthy neck, correct topline.  Drives out and covers the ground well.  Width good going and coming to me.  For BOB the dog just had a little extra 'look at me'.  A lovely girl indeed.
2nd Russell,  Russteck I Dreamed A Dream

Same way bred as her kennel mate to whom I awarded the Res CC.  Quality all through.  Have admired her many times and she is another I would have gladly awarded a CC.  She had a battle with her kennel mate and nit picking.  Thought her a shade longer in the challenge.  But nothing to take away from her.  Superb coat texture and presentation.  So soundly made and looked a picture moving.  Surely her day must come.
