Judges report for the Miniature Dachshunds at the Eastern Counties Dachshund Association Open Show held on 28th May 2017.
A lovely run show with a garden party atmosphere in the sunshine and a good steward. I found no bad mouths and all dogs were presented well and all had acceptable heads and black toe nails. Some of the classes were challenging.

MWH P. (3,1) 1. Crow’s Martinks Drives You Dotty, well balanced pup of 9 mths. Nice head with good pigmentation and well set ears. Harsh coat and moving well. 2. Smith’s Creme De La Creme Sandra Buttock (imp) Slightly larger B of 10 mths. Good pigmentation and moving well from well muscled quarters. J (1,0) 1. Flower’s Vostock Zapad Viking for Bingobongo 10 mths bl/t of 10 mths, correct head with well shaped eye set on a good length of neck and well placed shoulders with prominent sternum. Level topline, harsh coat and moving well BP. Y(0) PG (5,1) A close decision. 1. Crow’s Compania Pandora Mature bitch of 3 1/2. Nicely constructed B with pretty head, good coat, well knuckled feet and moving well. 2. Morris’ Pennywave Uptown Girl JW. Nice headed b of 2 ½, good length of neck leading to well held topline and good tailset, coat harsh to touch, not quite the scope in movement of 1. 3. Ward-Blower’s Willowmist Brown Sugar. L.

Ward-Blower’s Whitewebbs Painted Black by Willowmist. Nice head and good shoulder. Well muscled quarters and wiry coat, at 8 yrs old a credit to her owner. O (2,0) 1. Morris’ Pennywave Top Totti JW ShCM . Lovely correct coated b.of 3years. Very well blanced. Everything fitting together with no sharp angles, your eye just flows over this girl from the tip of her nose to tip of her tail, firm topline and well set tail, moved with a free and easy reach and drive . In a nice entry a stand out winner. BOB. I later heard I had given her Group 2 at a show last year and she has gained letters after her name . 2. W. Painted Black at W.

Thank you so much to the committee for asking me to judge at their show. It was a very enjoyable day amongst friends and I really enjoyed myself. The dogs were better than last time I judged miniatures and I was pleased to see there were none that looked drastically underweight.
There were, however, a couple of dogs that were over long or too tall which doesn’t help when trying to keep correct weight. Most displeasing thing I saw today though, was several dogs with very dirty teeth, one in particular being only 7 months old (the first miniature smooth I judged). It takes little effort to correct this and keep them clean so please, exhibitors, pay more attention to your dogs.

Eastern Counties Dachshund Association
Open Show
5th June 2016

Thank you to the committee for inviting me to judge today, I think this was one of the best atmospheres at a show I have experienced. The dogs I judged today were all in superb condition, I am pleased to say that on the whole mouths were fine, temperaments were wonderful, but for me too many ribs/keels stop between the front legs and I was also disappointed at how many, especially youngsters, were either too deep in chest and/or too short on the leg I do like to see daylight, I know I am repeating myself. May I also thank my Steward Ian Seath for his help to keep things running smoothly.
