Judge: Mrs Judith I Armstrong (Lauralee)
Thank you L.K.A. for the invitation to judge Standard Smooth Dachshunds.
Thank you Smooth exhibitors for your entry.. Take away the Lauralee’s and the politics of the breed and I was more than pleased with my entry.. It is quite difficult to judge to a type as with the influence of overseas blood in particular places like Russia where the type is finer and taller this made it somewhat challenging . Having said that I was pleased with my main winners.
PD. 4. All these puppies were at different stages of development ,physically and mentally .
1st Macdonald’s Bensarka Limerick. Handsome red with well made skull ,showing a correct eye shape, good strong mouth and jaw ..Correct dentition no narrow underjaw here. Flowed from his neck into his shoulder ,stood on good feet ,enough bone for size..Top line maybe a little soft at this stage but only a baby, enough rear angulation ,handled well on the table ,moved out smartly .Shall watch his development with interest, was pleased to award him BPIB.
2nd Heels Daxanory Menacing Dennis . Another promising puppy ,well off for bone with pleasing head .Just needs ring training to make the most of himself and show off his attributes.
JD2. 1st Burke and Manston Bonavoir Murdoch ..If i’m being picky I would like more size about him for a male.. Having said that what was there of him was well presented.. Decent enough head piece with good mouth ..Moved out with purpose.
2ndCox Dovestream Black Russian at Dachshinbull.Black and Tan from a larger mould than winner . Not as balanced as my winner.
PG. 2. 1ST Andison and Peel Tramardachs into Infinity ..Red with good skull shape ,correct mouth no lack of underjaw . Eye’s of good dark colour, well made rear which he used on the move . would have liked to have seen him carry a little more body to complete the picture . Seeemed quite unsettled at first but got his act together in the end.
Williams and Jackson Almida mythos atWherrypoint.. Longer cast right through , not the finish of above .
Limit 3. 1st Cunningham Clentry back to black for celandine.. Smart black and tan.. You have to go over this hound to appreciate his many qualities. Very masculine head piece ,good strong jaw with good strong bite , stood on well padded feet , enough length of ribbing , well sprung , moved out with ease around the ring was pleased to award him the res cc.
2nd Borrelli Carpaccio trouble in store ..This owner has worked well with hound. Houndy looking headpiece , good mouth ,topline good held on the move .. just appreciated the make of rear of above.
Open 2 1st Mrs and Miss Kerry Kireton Beau Diddley . I have often seen this hound carry to much condition but today he was on the money. Strong masculine head ,correct mouth , good lay of shoulder with enough upper arm . Topline maintained at all times ,enough ribbing ,strong sound movement , at one with his handler ,stood four square and presented a clean outline..Pleased to award him dog cc.

2nd Vaitekunaite Majestic poppy ringo letenele. Smaller mould than above .. Head ok ,but would prefer better eye shape ,, handled ok .

2nd Mcnaughton Cedavoch Windstorm . Red girl not the front assembly of one .Pleasing sort in head , correct mouth , well off for bone .Good bred type.
OB.7 2 ABS. 1ST Chauhan Take a chance on me at Raajput .. Beautiful black and tan girl .. Presented in fabulous condition ,with right amount of condition , so well put together , sound as they come , no goose stepping around the ring with this girl. Its easy to pull a good shape but so often because of the lack of upper arm they then fall to pieces on the move and end up treading water . Very pleased to say this is not the case here, enough bone . Neat feet enough ribbing, so well balanced , well made rear with out being over done . Good ground clearance , Showed her self off on the move and stack was delighted to award her cc and bob .

VB 1 Borrelli Carpaccio Black Pearl .Well put together bitch , very sound back and front. Correct mouth gave a good account of her self at all times .. hands just flowed over her.. maintained her good outline at all times .. not overdone . Looked as if she could have moved all day .pleased to award her res cc.
