East of England Dachshund Association Championship Show

I was honoured to be asked to judge BIS at this pleasant show. Run by a happy

Committee who made everyone welcome. Thank you


1st. Kents “CH. BARRATI JEEVES AT LOKMADI” This little chap is so full of confidence, he is a min Smooth , black and tan 7 year old. He has a good head and expression, very well placed

shoulders. Correct top line, spring of rib, and strong hind endthat he uses to propel himself forward with a certain arrogance, and accuracy. Moved like the Champion he is.

2 nd . Suttons DAMAI MASTER BENEDICT ShCM” this Longhaired dog is, at the age of 10 years + , a credit to his owner, A pleasing head and expression, teeth were sparkling clean. Held his top line well both standing, and on the move Good angles, both shoulders and hind end are well set. Good condition.


-BEST IN SHOW. This was a lovely line up of high quality Dachshunds, and gave me great

pleasure to see them all.

Blackburn Bennett’s “CH LOKMADI SEA HOLLY AT STARGANG” A four year old Min Smooth red bitch of great quality. She has a lovely outline and, whether standing or moving, she maintains her shape. A sweet head and strong neck leading into correct shoulders, a strong

top line. The rear end is correct and movement is accurate. Very pleasing. Best in Show

RESERVE B.l,s. went to Starkey’s “CARPACCIO JASPER FRON HAMOURA” a four year old Standard Smooth. He has the most eye catching outline, Good bone and construction. Moved well, with drive and purpose. Beautiful head and expression.


1ST Smith & Flowers “BINGOBONGO’S SHORT AND SWEET” An extremely nice Min Wire. The first and lasting impression I got was what a cracking coat. Crisp and beautifully presented.

When I got to the body of this little bitch, I was not disappointed. Correct mouth, pleasing head, nice sweep of neck to a fair shoulder, Good spring of ribs leading back to correct loin placing. She moved well, and seemed to enjoy herself. Happy to award her Best Puppy in


2 nd and Reserve Best Puppy in Show.

Rodrigues “DARSOMS ZANTOR” A pleasing Black & Tan Longhaired dog. Nicely constructed and well covered. He is in good condition, and he put everything into moving well.
