Few breeds have given me so much pleasure through my doggy life as the Miniature Wire-Haired Dachshunds. Kari and I breed and exhibited this lovely breed for years. We made up 12 UK champions and won a hound group with one of them on our way. The truth is that I am still missing these attractive and funny creatures with such amazing personalities.
In general, I was pleased with the quality of the dogs shown under. Most of them were sound and of good type with the right proportions. I would, however, have liked to see a few with better coats and the tail carriage was a problem. It was too many flag poles. Here is what I thought about the different exhibits:

Puppy - Dog 
1ST HIT SEDONA IZ DIVNOGORGA (MRS J M & MISS E V NORTH-ROW), This is a very promising puppy of excellent size and quality. I liked everything about this baby and my guess is that he will have a great future. He had a nice head and a superb outline with the correct tail carriage. He is well angulated, and he moved very well. BP
2ND PENNYWAVE NOSEY PARKER AT BROCKLEWOOD (MRS G SALISBURY), Similar to the winner in type 
and quality but preferred the topline on the winner on the move.
3RD BOTHLYN STORM TROUPER (MRS E & MISS G FULTON)

Limit - Dog
1ST RUSSTECK THE BRUCE (MRS C RUSSELL), Itís a lot to like about this nice dog. He has a good head and neck and he is well developed in body with a good for chest. He moved well, but 
topline could be stronger

Open - Dog
1ST CH RIDANFLIGHT RICARDO (MR S ROSE). Here he was the King of the day. He impressed me no end and I was taken by his wonderful head and outline. He had the right ribbing and the 
keel was perfect. He moved with drive and emotions without being overdone. I understand that I gave him his CC number 46 which makes him the new record holder.I therefore want to send Ricardo and his breeder my most serious congratulation! 
CC & BOB
2ND CH HELYDON LAIRD LOKI JW (MRS D, MISS A & MISS A KIRKWOOD-EMERY). Here was another top-quality dog which also impressed me. He was just unlucky to meet Ricardo in such great form. RCC

Veteran - Dog
1ST HOLRIK MISTER MISCHIEF (MRS C & MR N CORNER), A great old gentlemen which still is in excellent 
form. Stands and moves well.

Puppy - Bitch
1ST JOLANDA UPTOWN GIRL AT BOTHLYN (MRS E & MISS G FULTON), Promising puppy of excellent type. She gives a superb picture standing and moves very well, but her tail carriage was too high.
2ND BOTHLYN A WHISPER AT DACHIENNE (MRS J WHYTE), Nice bitch of good type. Good head, front and topline, but she could have been better angulated behind. Moved well.
3RD GRAGARETH GIRL AT CARCORN (MRS C & MR N CORNER)

Junior - Bitch
1ST STARGANG PEGGY SUE AT PENNYWAVE JW (MRS C A MORRIS), Red bitch of excellent type. She has a nice head and is very well constructed with an attractive outline. The topline could, however, be stronger on the move.
2ND BOTHLYN A WHISPER AT DACHIENNE (MRS J WHYTE) 
3RD MOLLONEY WINNIE TERGAMES AT WISTEX (MISS J & MRS L STEPHENSON & SEXTON)

Post Graduate - Bitch
1ST EMEM CONSTANCE SUNSHINE (MRS M M DANCE). This was my little princess because she reminded me so much of the bitches Kari and I used to show in the old days Yes, I might have liked to see her with a slightly better head, but this did not take anything from the positive impression this little star gave me. Her outline and construction were superb and her tail carriage and movements were perfect. CC 
2ND HELYDON MAGICAL MIKA (G KIRKWOOD), Nice bitch of good type which unfortunately wasnít in the best of coat on the day. Well-constructed but topline could be better. Moves well.
3RD FALLOWMILL INDIAN RUNNER (MRS J C HOWELLS)

Open - Bitch
1ST EMEM SUMMER SUNSHINE (MRS M M DANCE), I can now see that this is the litter sister to my CC winner, but I could have guesses that just by looking at them. They do look like twins and it was a close decision between the two of them. In the end I did, however prefer the and tail carriage of Constance Sunshine so that swung it to her advantage RCC

2ND CH HELYDON FABULOUS FREYA (MRS D, MISS A & MISS A KIRKWOOD-EMERY), Excellent bitch of high class. She was pushing hard, but in the end, I preferred the winnerís outline on the move.
3RDBANBURG SVETLANA AT SHARNPHILLY (MRS S ODDIE)

Special Beginners - Bitch
1ST CHARANSCO BACK TO BLACK (MISS N S THOMPSON), Nice typical birch which unfortunately is naked on the day. She is well constructed and moves well around but could be better in front
2ND GRAGARETH GIRL AT CARCORN (MRS C & MR N CORNER), Typical bitch with a nice head. She is 
sound, but her topline curves to much over the loin.
