LONG HAIRED DACHSHUND.
V (1) 1.Robert’s Ch Swansford Warrador
Eight year old in lovely condition and beautifully presented . Masculine head of correct proportions with a nice dark eye. Enough neck and forechest ,good topline , strong quarters and tail set good.
Very sound on the move covering the ground with ease. BV
PD (2) 1. Robert’s Swandsford Gabrieldor
Seventh month old puppy , super conical shaped head masculine but not over done , good ear set ,correct bite and dark eye. Good keel , and legs well under ,tight feet. Lovely angulation front and rear with a good topline and strong quarters .A joy to watch moving very composed for a puppy excelled for me in reach and drive . His super neck and shoulders gave him the edge over my RBD BD BOB & BP
2. Eve’s Sundayshill Benedict
Six month old puppy lacking the maturity of first ,and being naughty today .
Correct head proportions strong bite . I would like to see a little more keel , balanced fore and aft just struggling to hold his topline on the move this will settle with maturity ok coming and going .
PGD (1) 1. Wedge’s Peverleigh Autumn Lois at Dolans
Two year old. Masculine head correct ear set and bite. Enough angulation , and ribbing I would just like a more developed second thigh .moved with purpose and at one with handler.
PB (1) 1. Wedge’s Danton Fire Dancer at Dolans
A ten month old pretty bitch nice dark eye and correct bite . A little more forward in shoulders than I would like , well ribbed with good proportions. True coming and going topline improved when she settled into her stride.
JB (2,1) 1. Vincent’s Tan Socks at Gainscroft
Just out of puppy and not settled to day. I would prefer a little more length in foreface and ear set lower, strong jaws , correct bite and a lovely dark eye. Shoulders ok enough length of rib in good condition and coat moved ok
PGB (1) Wedges’s Faulksfollie Miss Minaver at Dolans
A pretty head of correct proportions and shape with a nice dark oval eye . Oval chest good ribs well muscled and in coat .Moved soundly I would just prefer a little more ground clearance
OB (3,1) Ch Swansford Gemmadora
A quality four year old , lovely head with a soft feminine expression . Well developed keel , good in neck and front , level topline, and super quarters ,
Lovely to watch on the move showing great reach and drive beautifully presented . Delighted to award her BB she only narrowly lost out to PD who stole my heart.
2. Burke & Manston’s Bonavoir Ermintrude
Unfortunate to come up against the first a lot to like about this bitch just not in as good condition today. Pretty head good neck , shoulders could have a little more lay back, correct proportions and tail set . Moved soundly RBB
