open by Kym Drady.

Thank you to the committee for the invitation to judge, the warm welcome extended to
Dulcie and I and the delicious homemade food on the day. As it was their 75 th Anniversary
show, there was also beautiful celebration cakes to mark the occasion.

There were 47 standard dachshunds present, 1 Junior Handler and 1 present in AV Miniature
Open Stakes. All of the dogs entered were in excellent condition and of sound temperament. I
would like to particularly single out my steward for thanks, who was exceptional on the day.
There were quite a few absentees, but the weather was simply atrocious. I would like to thank
every competitor for their entries and for allowing me the privilege of judging your beautiful

Miniature Smooth Haired
Puppy (2/0)
1st Kent’s Lokmadi Catherine Wheel: 12mth b/t bitch, A lovely head, set on an elegant neck and with good front and rear angulation. Maintained a level top line when moving. This she did with sound drive. BP
2nd Mutton’s Montone Her Ladyship: 10mth red bitch, An elegant head and neck, moving with really drive but not holding a level top line consistently today. RBP
Junior (3/1)
1st Yeoman’s PinedaxMurcas Little Girl at Klynerbyner: 13mth chocolate bitch, a super size and construction but would like her a little more positive on the move. Maintained a level top line throughout.
2nd Watkinson’s My Boy Samson Lee: 12mth red dog, lovely proportions and movement but too big for my liking, but maintained a level top line with excellent drive.
Yearling (6/4)
1st Dare’s Darsoms Zoe: 19mth b/t bitch, From her classic head, through elegant neck and great angles front and rear, she was a great example of the breed. Level top line at all times and straight driving on the move.
2nd Edwards’ Little Glass Slipper: 19mth b/t bitch, A little too leggy for me but showed gooddrive on the move and maintained a level top line throughout.
Post Graduate (1/0)
1st Lewis’ Roonard Calendar Girl: 2 1/2yr b/t bitch, Great head with sound front and rear angles. Level top line but would like more drive when on the move.
Limit (9/1)
1st Startup’s Curtisey Head Gardener: 4yr red dog, spot on in every aspect. A great example of what a miniature should be, plus attitude, just lost out to the open winner by fractions. RBOB
2nd Lewis’ Ardenrun Maid of the Weald: 4yrs red bitch, another excellent breed specimen with little to fault. Just not driving to the extent of the class winner today.
Open (6/1)
1st Muggleton’s Mosiarto Miss Minimum: 6 1/2yr b/t bitch, super classy with everything I was looking for including the ability to show herself off on the move. BOB
2nd Mutton’s Poshpride Alfa Lady: 6yr b/t bitch, pushed the winner hard but was beaten on drive on the move. Would be a worthy winner on another day.

Miniature Wirehaired
Puppy (4/0)

2nd Grant’s Pennywave Percy at Granhoward: 7mth dog, larger stamp than the winner but also spot on in construction. Would have liked him to give me a bit more in the drive around the rind. RBP
Junior (3/2)
1st Black’s Lordscairnie Cauld Be Love: 17mth dog, soundly constructed with great drive and a level topline on the move. Just watch the weight.
Yearling (2/1)
1st MacFarlan’s Bassodon Minerva: 8mth bitch, Not flashy but so sound in construction and movement. Another to watch in the future.
Post Graduate (4/0)
1st Selley’s Ubu Fascinating Aida to Heleanne: 2yr bitch, So sound without being flashy. Excellent front and rear construction with so much balance on the move. BOB

2nd Ward-Blower’s Whitewebbs Painted Black by Willowmist: 10 1/2yr dog, Still strutting his stuff at this age but lacking the drive of the winner on the move.
Open (3/1)

I would like to thank the committee for giving me this opportunity to go over the three standard dachshund breeds. It was interesting to go over what should essentially be the same dog but all of the three breeds have their good and bad points which vary from breed to breed. I was very pleased to see that my main winners featured highly in the Best in Show judging. The show was very well run and there was an excellent sporting atmosphere round the rings. The only downside for the dogs was the flooring which did not allow them to move out as well as they undoubtedly could. My most difficult task was the unenviable judging between two great children in the junior handling class.

Wirehaired Dachshunds
Puppy: (2 entries, no absentees) 1. Phillips’ Tendrow Turns The Right Page, 11 month old red bitch, good harsh coat, nice almond shaped eye, pleasing feminine head, correct top line, good length of ribbing and bone, moved well BP (and BPIS) 2. Howe’s Bramalodge Blue Monday, 6 month old brindle dog, excellent harsh coat, decent length of neck, a little short in upper arm, good top and underlines, limited upper thigh and rear angulation, rather liked his tail but otherwise moved well, could not compete with a puppy almost twice his age, plenty of time for improvement.
Junior: (3,0) 1. Coverley’s Aventine Dolcetto, 17 month old brindle bitch, good harsh coat, feminine head, correct eye and ear set, good clearance, pleasing top and under lines, sufficient rear angulation, not quite enough front, moved well 2. Gibson’s Allfreys Matilda, 13 month old brindle bitch, good front, feminine head, good eye, good angles all round, correct top and underlines, moved well, just lost out on maturity 3. Clayton-Smith’s Cairparavel Kiss From A Rose
Yearling: (2,0) 1. Coverley’s Aventine Amarella, litter sister of junior winner, very feminine, excellent outlines, good front, correct shoulder angulation, decent length of neck, good clearance, tight feet, good movement 2. Clayton-Smith’s Cairparavel Lilac Wine, 18 month old brindle bitch, rather heavy in coat, good height/length ratio, pleasing head, not the length of neck of class winner, good top and under lines, decent length of ribbing, down on front pasterns, could lose a pound or two in weight, moved well
Post Graduate: (4,0) 1. Howe’s Bramalodge Betsy Button, two year old brindle bitch, well presented with harsh coat, nicely proportioned, maybe a bit heavy over the shoulders, moved with balance, best in class by far and not far off reserve placing 2. Clayton-Smith’s Cairparavel Lilac Wine, as above 3. Howe’s Kissdachs Bilbao At Bramalodge 4. Munday & Spalding’s Cishelvine Can’t Catch Me With Kubear
Limit: (3,1) 1. Chambers’ Cishelvine Just A Kiss With Hototo, 21 month old red dog, good head and eye, strong front, tight feet, good top line and ribbing, good rear angulation, so full of himself, strong and masculine, moved with verve, BoB 2. Chambers’ Tendrow I Am A Legend With Elderkine, three year old dark brindle bitch, ribbing could be longer, rather low to ground and carrying too much weight but good front and outlines, and moved well.
Open: (3,2) 1. Gibson’s Allfreys Helena, I have liked this two year old brindle bitch for some time, good harsh coat, excellent size and proportions, good front and tight shoulders, really well angulated, moved well with parallel rear action , but just a bit fidgety and not quite as composed as normal which lost her top spot in the challenge, RBoB

Longhaired Dachshunds
Puppy: (5,2) 1. Dare’s Swansford Gasperdor Darsoms, 10 month old black and tan dog, very masculine head, good eye, profuse coat, correct shoulders, decent length of neck, good front, top and underlines, tight feet, moved out well but not quite as much rear drive for perfection, BP (and RBPIS) 2. Booth Elsley’s Abbalongdat I Had A Dream, seven month old red dog, good length of coat, pleasing male head and eye, front angulation could be better, good top line, moved well and good rear movement but not so impressive coming towards 3. Booth Elsley’s Abbalongdat One Of Us
Junior: (3,0) 1. Johnson & Cross’ Wardax Angelica, 16 month old red bitch, good size, correct proportions, good length coat, feminine head, decent front, level top line, lacked ribbing (but not alone in this), moved reasonably well but rather close front and rear 2. Dare’s Larkhund Black Panther, 16 month old black & tan dog, profuse coat, on the large side, front not as good as class winner, good top and under lines, moved very much as class winner, preferred size of winner 3.

Junior Handling
Junior Handling (6-10 years): Two very young handlers, neither of whom had great experience but who will hopefully take encouragement from what must have been quite a daunting experience in a large ring with many onlookers, 1. Maria Vaitekunaite, who followed advice and instructions and handled her dog very well and with some confidence. Whilst clearly not strong enough to place her dog on the table she nevertheless managed to set her dog correctly and then walked him calmly around the ring and did as asked, 2. Sam Smythe, who needs a little more training and did become a tad confused on a couple of occasions but nevertheless did not lose heart and carried on valiantly and walked his dog as asked.
Junior Handling (11-16 years): No entries
