Firstly Thankyou to the officers and committee of Driffield for inviting me to judge
And to the exhibitors for the lovely entry .
As many who know me I judge as I see on the day - who is who or who has won what really doesnít bother me in the slightest
In general I would say in my opinion the overall quality of the breed has slightly deteriorated since I last judged this variety
Many look lovely stacked but movement leaves a lot to be desired especially the rear where pinning in flicking out back feet or very wide is apparent in many exhibits and in some classes you struggle to find a sound moving dog also yes they are miniature Dachshunds but they are hounds and should still move as one not as a tummy tapping toy .
This said front assembly and heads seem to have improved .
Another concern for me and one that I feel needs addressing at haste is the size and weight issues some exhibits are now pushing 12 pound and some well over there is a difference between a dog that is just carrying a little excess weight to one that is built to be these weights the latter for me is a major concern pretty soon there will be no difference between a small standard and a large Mini .
Please could we all try to help and encourage new people into the show world and help them with advice on how to show their exhibits and ring etiquette then hopefully there will be a future for showing .
My remarks above are genuinely said to make some Breeders and exhibitors just take a look and not to be kennel blind and help this lovely variety get better and better
My main winners pleased me immensely.

Puppy Bitch 7
1.Fleming Brogansian Gingerella .This Breeder really has a lovely type having bred my dog ticket winner -This young lady caught my eye on entering the ring and didnít disappoint on going over she is of a lovely size with the most femine head and eye compact neat well laid shoulders excellent length of keel true free mover . I wish you luck with her as given the chance she should reach the top tier .
2.Melbourne ,Carroll and Pagent Melriding Sisi .Another who presented a balanced picture standing with many of the breed attributes of above but today she was not in her best bib and tucker having apparently suffered an allergic reaction to something but a promising young lady
3.Bullis Amaffrey Flo Rider .
Junior Bitch 5 Hunts Mylforbe Red Velvet At Sunara .Wow just totally fell for this young lady who is of top draw quality she is the absolute double of her Grandmother whom I have previously given a CC to so obviously my type of Dachshund ,The most gorgeous head and eye beautiful reach of neck running into well laid correctly angled shoulders excellent length of ribbing reaching well back lovely hammy quarters standing absolutely four square her movement in profile is a dream where she also keeps the correct topline also very true front and back she really is the complete package for me I was delighted to award her her first CC&BOB and I am sure this will be the fist of many as other judges appreciate this top draw bitch
2.Coxans DíArisca Little Black Dress Attractive young lady who has appealing attributes but her rear movement really let her down today she was badly pinning in .

3.Holmes Gabmaddi Carolina Rose
Limit Bitch 5(1)
