I wish to pass on my sincere thanks to the very hard-working officers and committee working in very trying circumstances. I congratulate you on running this happy show with fabulous big rings. Thanks to my brilliant stewards running the ring to perfection. and exhibitors for their sportsmanship and remaining jolly throughout.

All exhibits were clean and well-presented, temperaments were excellent.

I have been away from the rings for a while so had a fresh pair of eyes not knowing the latest fashion. Social media should be avoided prior to judging as this does no one any favours. Size and type is more varied than ever. No one particular fault to pick up on, which I feel is a good thing, nothing of any real concern. I think we need to study pedigrees more carefully and not panic as the gene pool is smaller now, just be careful and stick to good sound honest types.

This was reflected in my main winners with strength in lower classes and top classes with bigger variation of type in the middle classes.

Special Beginners Dog/Bitch (4,2 Abs)

 

These classes are a great opportunity for new people to the breed to learn on the job and study experienced exhibitors in the ring, so good to see new people entering our breed.

 

1st: VINCENTíS Metadale Monica at Gainscroft

Very young inexperienced baby but has many good qualities, needs to gain experience, good overall balance shape should bring her owners a few nice wins next year.

 

2nd: VINCENTíS Tan Socks at Gainscroft-sweet girl well made all through but rather too small, giving her owner a lot of confidence, which was a joy to see.

 

Minor Puppy Dog (2 Entries)

Two promising babies with bright futures.


1st: BOOTH ELSLEY Abbalongdat I Had a Dream

 

Well grown puppy for 8 months, strong masculine head, good shoulder angulation, still needs to tighten in elbow excellent length of rib and firm topline, correct hind angulation allowing good drive so moved well, has a bright future when mature.

 

2nd: BOOTH ELSLEY Abbalongdat One of Us


Litter brother to winner, obviously similar remarks apply, easy to say he is just less mature, being softer in topline and a little loose all through at present. but still has all the same qualities and will swap places on many occasions.

 

Puppy Dog (3)


1st: ROBERTS Swansford Gabrieldor

 

Much has already been written about this youngster and I was not disappointed. He is of correct size and good proportions. Excellent head, reachy neck, correct shoulder placement ample forechest and upper arm. Good length of ribbing, neat underline and super hid angulation. Has a mature coat finishing off a good balanced honest dog. Moving he is outstanding with great reach and drive. Still a puppy with the world at his feet, a joy to award him RCC,BP and delighted to see him go BPIS congratulations.

 

2nd: REES Sundayshill Blackberry

 

Not disgraced being 2nd behind the winner, another with well chiselled head, good length of neck, ribbing and keeping firm topline. Muscular dog in good hard condition, Well angulated and strong drive. Looked good in profile and stacked.

Lovely masculine Stallion type dog. Good head and neck flowing into good lay of shoulder. Balanced length of upper arm. Muscular firm topline, powerful and balanced on the move, fills the eye when stacked. Moved with purpose and drive around the ring


2nd: CHAPMAN Africandawns Justin N Time for Melminds

 

Honest type, not over flashy and one you need to get your hands on to appreciate, well made all through, much more workmanlike, with strong topline and excellent ribbing. Powerful rear drive and covers the ground well.


3rd: DUCHENES Darsoms Zyjosh of Scandell

Limit Dog (8, 1 Abs)

One thing Dachshund breeders and exhibitors can always be proud of, our veterans! Proof that quality and maturity go together, dachshunds are built to last and we have over the years had some excellent veterans. Today was no exception.


1st: COOK & RHODES Abydachs Rides the Storm to Bournder

 

Put down to perfection, in tip top condition. I feel This dog should already have his title, correct size, elegant head, good neck, shoulders and front assembly. Strong topline, plenty of rib, well-shaped hind quarters, moves with ease and verve, leaving some of the youngsters behind. Powerful yet elegant. Totally fills the eye from all angles, no hesitation awarding him the CC in a very strong line up. Put in a faultless performance to take BOB, BV and eventually BVIS brilliant!

2nd: CHAPMAN Melminds Make them Gold

 

Well put together youngster, good head and front assembly, scores well in topline and rear angulation. Needs time to fill this framework. Although well matured in body she is very much a baby in his mind.

Good sized classic style honest bitch. Excellent type winning this strong class.

An incredibly strong and quality class all worthy of titles in my opinion, great news for the breed, terrifying to judge, really hair splitting as so much choice. Will all change places on many occasions. Thank you


1st:  LARKIN IR Ch Darsoms Zaneeta

 

Really Excellent type winning this very strong class. Excels in head, eye, reachy neck, well ribbed, strong top and underlines, well-shaped hind quarters, lovely depth of keel, moved soundly and with ease powering around the ring. Gleaming condition with correct furnishings so beautifully put together, she was pushed hard in the challenge, but her overall soundness and elegance won her this class and her first CC. I am sure her title will come.


2nd: ROBERTS Ch Swansford Gemmadora

 

Quality oozes from this girl, different type to winner, stockier build but not lacking elegance, not over done in any area, good overall shape and balance, totally sound all through and moves so easily with grace. Very worthy of being a champion, discovered she is mother to BP and what a good job she has done. When back to her full glory more top honours will be hers again RCC


3rd:  MCNAUGHTON Ch Cedavoch Circe

 

Veteran Bitch (4, 1 Abs)

Pretty bitch who again shows how well this breed can carry their age.  Well-constructed front and rear which she can still use with purpose on the move. Good head and neck. Keeping her outline both standing and on the move. A credit to her owner.


2nd: PASKINS Ch Abydachs Summer Dream at Kindeace ShCM

 

Have admired this girl from ringside, she moves out so well. Good neck into strong topline which she held both standing and on the move.  Balanced front and rear. Moved positive and true.
