The Ladies Kennel Association 2019
Judge: Mr J E Hunt
would like to thank the
officers and committee for inviting me to judge. I have been lucky to judge at
this show before and is a favourite of mine With it's lovely Christmas
I have to say presentation on the whole was good but there are a lot of curly coats creeping in. Teeth on the whole were clean. Pigmentation was certainly not good light nails light noses .....
I feel the glamour puss of dachshunds is certainly hitting the skids. Quality was very poor front assembly was disappointing in a majority of the exhibits. Angulated and well placed shoulders were virtually non existent. I was pleased with my principal winners but I do hope some careful choice of stud dogs is used to advantage as I personally feel that if this breed were to carry on in this state I can not see any future for this breed.
1st DARE Mrs C Swansford Gasperdor Darsoms, Smart Black and Tan of super quality masculine head and arrogant expression. Correct front assembly well placed shoulders . Excellent ribbing carried well back super hindquarters keeps a good outline .pressed very hard for the CC please to award RDCC and BP
2nd CROSS Mr L J Loggeta Trouble In Texas, immature baby pleasing head pleasing outline but needs to tighten up on the move to finish the picture.
1st DARE Mrs C Larkhund Black Panther Darsoms (IKC) Quality Black and Tan who I have admired from the ringside. And wow did he not disappoint me. Your hands flow over this exhibit. He is so elegant masculine head super well filled front with excellent shoulders . He has a well arched neck well sprung ribs fabulous quarters which give thrust on the move . He move out with style and purpose. Had no hesitation in awarding him Cc and Bob I was delighted this made him up. He was handled to perfection to get the best out of him .
Post Grad Dog
1st JOHNSON, Mr T L & CROSS Mr L J Africandawns Myles Long, Black and Tan for me I would like a more refined head. He is compact in type but I would like more neck which would give a more elegant outline . Moved out well covering the ground.
This was a Very difficult class to judge.
1st JOHNSON, Mr T L & CROSS Mr L J Africandawns Night Trooper, red who for me I found to be too tall for his length which made him look unbalanced. He needs to carry more weight he lacks elegance as he moved around with his tail flying like a flag pole .
2nd GARLICK Miss E A Ranglewood Harvest Song, longer type to winner for me would like a better head piece he has a well filled front but lacks length of stride on the move.
1st BENNETT Mr J G Shardaroba's Country File, smart red but for me I found him on the large size. He is all male he has a super head well filled front . Presented in good coat. Moved out well keeping a good outline at all times.
2nd GARLICK Miss E A Ranglewood Arashi, smaller type to the winner he has everything in the right place but I found he lacked drive on the move.
1st COOK, Mrs I A & RHODES Mrs P M Abydachs Rides The Storm To Bournder, smart red presented to perfection. Very elegant boy . Masculine head without coarseness . Well filled front keeps a good outline excellent feet. Considered for the Rcc but I thought the youngsters today had the edge. Best Veteran.
