I again enjoyed judging this lovely variety and thank the exhibitors for the entries. There were no concerns regarding body condition, apart from it is my opinion that some hounds would benefit from better muscle tone. Generally temperaments were good and it was great to see this was evident in the majority of the puppies. My main concern would be forward placed and steeply angled shoulders, resulting in a restricted gait. I was looking for a well- balanced and typical Dachshund in miniature, with sound movement. As always I endeavoured to judge holistically against the standard and avoid fault judging as there are no perfect specimens in any breed.

1st- Howell, Fallowmill Sydney

Loved this high quality baby with his super attitude and temperament so I forgave he was proud of his correctly set tail, well balanced with sound construction, harsh coat, well ribbed back, short coupled, quality bone into strong feet, moved soundly and accurately with sufficient ground clearance, may he continue to enjoy himself, BEST PUPPY.

2nd – Hayward & Howell, Fallowmill Camberra

Another lovely puppy but not so developed and outgoing as the first, good harsh jacket, good length and depth to ribbing giving correct underline, once settled moved sufficiently well.

PD – 2 Entries

1st – Kugow & Holt, Waldmeister Darby

Lovely head piece set on long neck into well placed shoulders, nicely balanced, strong topline, good ribbing, good ground clearance allowing to move with great freedom in profile.

2nd – Feetham, Kimbleholme Jackpot

Another good puppy with harsh coat, well angulated through the quarters, stands on tight feet, once settled and with maturity should develop well.

JD – No Entries

PGD – 1 Entry

1st – Lewis, Bastlefords Toffee Crisps At Trixhund

Red dog who moved out well in profile and used his strong rear to move true away but would just prefer a little more width in front, retained a good topline, well angulated shoulders, good depth to ribbing with a good underline.

LD – 6 Entries, 2 Absent

1st – Thorn Andrews, Drakesleat Hostile Takeova

Lovely conical head set on good neck, good angulation front and rear, well ribbed with correct topline and underline, balanced throughout with a clean cut outline, harsh coat, good muscle tone which assisted in his sound and parallel movement.

2nd – Boyns, Brindeckel Diamond Geezer

Good size and overall shape, lovely head proportions typical expression, jacket of harsh texture, correct pro sternum, would prefer more length to the ribbing, moving with drive to cover ground in profile.

High quality sound boy with great temperament, lovely typical conical head, clean and balanced in outline, well ribbed back with good depth and underline with sufficient ground clearance, quality harsh coat , strong quality bone into tight feet, moved soundly with extension and drive, true fore and aft, he is a true Dachshund in miniature, super presentation, pleased to award CC.

Red dog who is elegant in outline, Super conical houndy head with correct eye shape and lovely pigmentation, long neck, clean sweep to prominent keel, well ribbed for depth and length with good ground clearance, good condition and muscle tone, moving with a free stride and well handled by his experienced charge, unfortunate to meet the first in such good form as I am sure he should make up, RCC.

1st – Morris, Pennywave Uptown Girl

Pretty bitch with a classy feminine head piece, long neck into well placed shoulders, well balanced height to length ratio, well ribbed back with good underline, moved soundly and true fore and aft, today carrying just a little excess puppy pulp, she should do well in the future.

2nd – Way, Sudasam Murrurundi

Clean limbed young girl with clear outline, long elegant neck, good depth through the brisket, moving true fore and aft but needed to put more into her profile gait, I feel the ground did not suit her today

Lovely elegant and feminine puppy with super outline, long neck leads to clean well placed shoulders and good topline, good ribbing and underline, sound through the quarters, moved with good track fore and aft and free stride in profile to win the class, gave up a little in the challenge for best puppy, should mature into a lovely bitch.

2nd – Blackburn, Stargang Liberty Belle

Lovely breed type and quality, typical head and wire expression, sound in front assembly , good depth and length to ribbing, good quarter angles, moved well in front but unsettled today in rear movement on this ground, another who should mature well as I think the best is yet to come.
