Dachshund (Miniature Wire Haired)
Judge: Mrs Y Kent
1) Hunt Earthseas Pocket Rocket RBD, brindle dog who stood alone. Nice dark eye and good ear set. Medium length neck, straight front but rather high on the leg. Level topline, would prefer more bend to stifle. Trimmed rather severely. Moved OK.
1) Thorn Andrews Drakesleat Win Tin Tin, brindle dog with a beautiful head, correct eye and high ear set. Excellent front, good bone, good ribbing and well laid shoulders. Excellent harsh coat. Level topline and moved very well. BD
2) Kugow Waldmeister Samuel JW, brindle dog who is taller on the leg and a little shorter in body than 1. Classic head with correct shape eye and good ear set. Long neck, good shoulder and moved well.
1) Thorn Andrews Drakesleat Scent Sybil, What a little star ! I had no hesitation in awarding this puppy BOB and BP. She had a beautiful classic head with dark almond eye and high ear set. Long neck flowing into well laid shoulder. Excellent ribbing, strong muscular quarters with good angulation, low hock. Lovely harsh coat in great condition. Moved well with level topline in a determined and showy fashion. Delighted to see that she also won the Puppy Stakes on the day.
2) Morris Fraulein Giselle at Briarlind, brindle bitch with correct head, good straight front, was a little tucked up and topline is a little too rounded. Moved OK.
3) Stargang Quintina at Pennywave
1) Hunt Earthseas Dark Sorcery, standing alone a brindle bitch who wasn't co-operating with her handler today. Good head shape with dark eye. A little narrow in front and moved a bit close. Good ribbing and well angulated quarters.
1) Kugow Waldmeister Hattie, very smart bitch with classic head and dark eye. Long muscular neck, well laid shoulder and straight front. Good bone and feet. Well ribbed, short loin, in excellent hard muscular condition. Good harsh coat. Moved well.
2) Addoo & Addoo Reulemill Freya Freywood, brindle with dark eye and high set ear. Medium length neck, shoulders a little upright, straight front, level topline. Moved rather close behind.
1) Thorn Andrews Drakesleat May Contain Nuts, another excellent exhibit from this kennel. She fits the standard to a T and moved so well but had to give way to her younger kennelmate today. RBB
