I enjoyed my day judging miniature wirehaired at the Dachshund Championship show, thank you, to the officers of the Dachshund club for inviting me, too the exhibitors for their excellent entry, and too my very competent steward Mr Paul Hayes. Sadly  found many with dirty teeth, and several with long untrimmed nails. On the whole coats were good, and toplines have improved since the last time I judged this delightful little breed.

Sp/ Beginner/ D/B

1st 2/1 Hawkins Storm in a Teacup for Lonaza. Dog of good size. He has a lovely head, length of neck, decent shoulders and ribbing. Bit soft in coat, moved out well, a bit close behind.

2nd Davies’s Jermaina IZ Novo-Peredelkino at Stardax (imp Rus) Smaller type than first, but a brindle girl of good weight. Decent head and shoulder, well ribbed, would like more hind angulation. Moved well.


1st Crossman and Kennedy’s Moonshe Bumble Bee, Neat little black and tan, with lovely head, well made front, good ribbing and hind angles, he looked really  good on the move when he got his act together, keeping a good topline.

2nd Stortons Dereheath Tony the Lonely, Quality red I liked a lot, looked super stacked. Sound front construction, with good shoulder and ribbing, well angled quarters, he needs to come together on the move, has time on his side.

3rd Hunts Earthsea Pin Ball Wizzard.


JD 3

1st Thorn Andrews and Billighurst, Drakesleat Kumqaut May, Quality dog, full of substance with good bone. Houndy head, long neck leading into excellent shoulder, and good ribbing, strong chunky quarters, in good harsh jacket. His handler not getting the best from him today, heading for top honours I am sure.

2nd  Kilroys.Black vein Cupid at Janacop, Very nice brindle.not the substance of one, sound  front construction, excellent ribbing, and well angled quarters. Moved out well…with purpose and forward reach.

3rd  Smiths Alncroft  Ivan Inkling.


1st Tites Onitsuka Tiger Vitoraz at Rijobeau (imp cze) Red of substance, with houndy head…he has good front construction, long neck, good shoulder into strong ribbing, chunky well rounded quarters, looked a picture stacked. He needs to settle on the move…when I am sure he will trouble the best.

2nd Salisbury’s Pennywave Nosey Parker at Brocklewood. Dark brindle, with a lot to like, lower to ground than one, good bone and feet, well made in front, with good ribbing, chunky well-made quarters, lovely free movement.

3rd Phillips Gulliagh Loganberry of Robinswood (ikc)

LD 3/1

1st Mills-Jones..Carlita Sunrise JW. Brindle dog with houndy head, prominent well angled front, strong neck and very good shoulder, ribbing well back, chunky well made quarters, good wire coat, he moved with drive and forward reach and lovely head carriage. CC

2nd  Clare’s Lordscairnie Love God, One I have judge before, of good type, with harsh coat and lovely head, good all round conformation, not putting his all into his showing today.

OD 5/3

1st Kirkwood-Emery Ch Helydon Laird Loki JW, Lovely chunky brindle with good bone and harsh coat.  Sound front construction, long neck into very good shoulder. Well angled hind quarters, moved well keeping a firm topline RCC

2nd Thorn Andrews Ch Drakesleat Ivor Notion, Neat smaller package than one. Typical head and furnishings, sound prominent front, very good shoulder placement and ribbing, well angled hind quarters, moved well keeping his topline, just preferred the substance of one.

OB 11/3

 Best class of the day first  5 were champions…all very worthy of their titles and a difficult decision.

2nd Thorn Andrews.. CH Drakesleat Too Gud to be True…Of different type to one, a smaller package. but full of quality..and breed type and very sound construction through, kept her top line on the move. Just preferred the elegance and substance of one.

VB 2/1

1st  Daykins CH Barratini Hot Gossip.JW   Such a lovely veteran…in first class condition and clean teeth. Super breed type and excellent construction through, harsh coat, and lovely free movement, a credit to her owner. I did consider her for res CC…. just proud at the rear in the line-up.
