Very pleased to judge this variety of Dachshund which on today's showing has a satisfying depth of quality and a good future especially noting some lovely puppies present. Weight and body cover does not appear to be a serious problem with only 2 exhibits today pressing the top weight on the scales. I was very pleased with my winners and in some classes otherwise prize winners had to leave cardless. Congratulations to my CC winners and hope they go on to achieve their titles.

MPD
(4)1 A pleasing class of good quality puppies to start my day's judging. 1 Kent's Lokmadi A Boy Named Sue, a 7 month old B/T who for me has a super side profile which is balanced, not only in angulation but in length to height. Good bone and construction development with pleasing forechest. Attractive expression and typical head, set on a neck of good length flowing to a firm body and top line. Best mover of this class. 2 Phillips' Carpaccio Mr Selfridge Of Robinswood, an 8 month old and another promising quality youngster who is of similar make and shape to 1st. Good forechest and body width. Pleasing head and expression with sufficient length of neck compatible with his overall body and length. Moved out well in front with extension but would prefer more parallel width behind. 3 Ergis' Siouxline Flynn Rider.

PD
(6) 1 Paget & Carroll's Bronia Valente Of Marvale, an 11 month old who is typical in construction and distinctive in mature look and characteristics. He has a pleasing profile both in head and overall body outline being long and low but with good leg length completely in proportion to his length. Well made body with prominent breastbone and being firm in substance and top line. Moved with a sound, true active gait. Best Puppy Dog. 2 Heptinstall's Pascalli Blue Moon, another attractive 11 month old who is pleasing in quality of type and conformation. Well proportioned head with a pleasing expression. True front with good angulations which is in balance with the angles of his hindquarters; excellent overall shape with a firm correct line of body although just preferred more finished look of 1st. Moved with purpose and confidence. 3 Keenan and Smith's Bronia Vivaldo Of Citycroft

JD
(4)1 Smith & Connor's Bronia Gregorio. a super quality 17 month old B/T who has attractive clean lines all through which combined with all the essentials in characteristics, construction and breed type produce an excellent top quality male. He has an attractive head which he carries proudly and in noble fashion; he has ideal overall balance and proportions which catch the eye of the observer. He moved with purpose and confidence with true extension in front and good parallel width and drive behind. He is of the make and shape that I look for and was good to go over. He impressed me with his sound front, his firm well made body and strong well angled parallel rear construction. My Dog CC winner. 2 Protheroe's Grandgables Crafty Lil Devil At Royalmaple, a 13 month old Red who is nicely developed being a well made male who possesses many of the qualities of 1st while being slightly longer on the leg. Another with the balance in side profile and overall length that caught my eye. Well made front and forequarters with good width all through. Attractive head shape, lines and expression. Firm in body which is of pleasing overall length with tail set on high enough. Moved out well with good front action but tended to be closer in rear than I prefer. 3 Melbourne's D'arisca Flaunt It At Melriding.

UGD
(2) 1 Hunt's Mylforbe Matchmaker At Carpaccio, attractive 13 month old B/T of the type, make and shape that I like. Lovely expression with a typy head set on a neck of good length flowing onto a well made body and top line. Pleasing profile with good obvious forechest and having balance in angulations front and rear with ideal length of leg to suit him. One who possesses quality and promise. Moved well especially in front with true parallel action but preferred the rear movement of the CC winner. My Dog Reserve CC winner. 2 Bishton's Lokmadi Jack Be Nimble At Jaydania, an 11 month old who is pleasing in overall shape. I liked his head and intelligent expression. He is of ideal width all through with the desirable prominent breast bone I like. Well made in body which is of firm cover, spring and depth with pleasing top line. Tended to sit into himself which detracted from his profile on occasions. Moved freely but preferred rear action of 1st.

PGD
(3)1 Carey's Swingletrees Abracadabra, lovely shaped 2 year old red that has an attractive head, lovely dark eye, with nicely set ears, all of which go together to give him an attractive expression. Very attractive side outline with good length on the leg. Well constructed all through with a true front and obvious fore chest and excellent overall body length and having a firm level top line. Moved out well with an active gait. 2 Nolan's Kelmbeck Lord Of The Dance At Eddyval, a 5 year old b/t who is well enough bodied and mature in look. Pleasing in head and expression with good width all through having spring and depth and being well ribbed back. Needs to tighten in front which would help both standing and moving.

LD
(5,3) 1 Burton's Swingletrees Razzamatazz JW, very typical 2 year old red who is refined in head and expression and shapely both standing & moving. He held his top line well with good length in neck and pleasing head carriage. True front with good fore chest and width all through. He is firm in body with enough spring, depth and overall length to present an attractive picture. Moved out well and the better of this class. 2 Nolan's Kelmbeck Lord Of The Dance At Eddyval

OD
(3) 1 Paterson's Kinzel Hidden Promise, super male who is impressive in make and shape and has quality and promise in abundance. Very attractive head shape and expression, full of breed qualities. He is soundly constructed all through with a particularly well made front and forequarters. He has ideal width and is pleasing in balance of angulations front/rear. Eye catching profile with good height to length ratio and having enough length in leg to be fit for function. An easy mover with a free, true action with plenty of drive and extension. Close up to my top winners and will trouble the best as he develops and consolidates his quality. 2 MELbourne"S Metadale Nikolai Of Melriding, a 3 year old who is of a different style to my 1st being a more compact and substantially constructed male. Typy masculine refined head which is pleasing in profile and is in keeping with his overall body outline and balance. Good dark eye and good ears. I liked his front and forequarters, overall body and top line. Moved out freely but needs to settle in front. Watkinson's Manakoora Hawaiian Amakihi

Vet D
(1) 1 Sim's Little Wizard Of Kelmbeck, a 7 year old b/t mature male who has an attractive overall make and shape. Pleasing head both in shape and expression. Ok front but would prefer more width; he has good overall body length and is balanced in front and rear angulations. Moved freely but tended to be unsettled in front and close behind.

MPB (10,2) 1 Paterson's Shelsall Ginger Rogers At Ambiesque, a mature looking 6 month old red who is well boned and well developed having all the desired conformation qualities and an abundance of promise. She is of the make, shape and style that appeals to me. She has a look of fitness power and strength and is well constructed in front and fore quarters with ideal width all through; stands true. She has a very attractive side profile with balance in angulations and is ideal in body and leg length. The best of movers with superior head carraige.

She is excellent in conformation all through. Super head shape and expression, well developed with a sound true front with good width and fore chest. Firm in body and correct in top line. Moved with purpose and active confidence in true puppy style but not as precise as 1st. 3 Oddie and Dyer's Stargang Sea Folly At Riowood.

PB
(11,2)1 Salisbury's Brocklewood Black Rose, a super quality 11S month old b/t bitch of solid make and substance. Eyecatching in profile both standing and on the move.

She has a true front which is of ideal width and full nicely let down hindquarters which are broad enough with legs set parallel. Moved really well, true, freely and best of class. 2 Kent's Lokmadi Goodnight Irene, a 10 month old b/t who is another very promising impressive quality youngster. She is of very similar construction and style to 1st and shares many of the same qualities and comments; today I just preferred the head profile of 1st. She moved well and true enough with good extension in front and width behind. 3 Scott's Wolferlow Mary Quant.

JB
