Smooth Haired Dachshund Club 2011

Best in Show

I really enjoyed my day at the Show. The lunch was amazing and everyone very friendly. BIS was the Miniature Smoothhaired, Callows', Gartthorne Miss Dynamite JW. Wel balanced with superb head, correct shoulders and tight oval front. Correct length of ribbing. Strong well angulated hindquarters. She kept a beautiful outline moving and stacked. RBIS was the Standard Smooth, Cooper's, Ch. Sontag Simon Le Bone JW. This elegant dog was also Best Veteran in Show. Stunning head, deep front, correct length of body to height. Moved well. BPIS was the Miniature Smoothhaired, Read's, Cedax Octavia Surprise for Deercroft. Loved this young lady. Showed herself so well. Feminine head with correct eye. Tight front with elbows tucked in. Correct length of ribbing. Moved out well using her hindquarters to advantage. RBPIS was Rawson's, Rosenket Pillow Talk. Lovely head and eye. Correct shoulder placement. Strong topline. Would have preferred tighter bunchier feet and shorter nails.
