Dachshund (Long Haired)
Judge: Miss J Lanning
DACHSHUND - LONG HAIRED
A very good entry awaited
judge elect Stuart Mallard, who was unable to be present. I thank, exhibitors
for accepting at short notice me as replacement judge. It is good to see the
this variety back to a sensible size. A time when they were some who too heavy
and over boned. I often refer to the standard using the word 'compact' regarding
body proportions. The Dachshund must always be well-knit, in body. A unit,
everything fitting tidily together. Some are over long in body, and makes for
weakness in the back. Some good fronts around, and I looked for some ground
clearance in my winners. Some were being too low to ground. A good tail carriage
helps by putting a stamp on an already good dog. There were several, with 'dead'
tails. One likes to see a dog using its tail on the move. My main winners, all
good representatives of their breed.
VD (2,1) 1 Sutton's Damai Master Benedict ShCM. Excellent head and eye. Good feet and front. Moving well. Must have been a good winner in his time?
PD (1) 1 Chapman's Melminds Zsylvester RCC &BP. High class youngster. Good head and eye. Level top-line, moving well. Has everything going for him.
JD (1) 1 Mitchell's Bronia Mr Pepys. Top class youngster. Ticks all the boxes, excellent front, good topline. should finish well.
PGD (2) 1 Dare & Guy's Melminds Zitanic At Darsoms. Pleasing size. Has all the essentials, but not using his tail on the move. 2 Cooper, Steadman & Hendren's Darsoms Zethro. Built on bigger lines, real quality, but was rather unsettled on the day.
LD (2) 1 Booth & Elsley's Abbalongdat The Visitor. A shade overdone in length of body. Lovely quality, firm front. Went well. 2 Halsall's Labbadax Anastazio. Pleasing size. Front could be firmer, and not using his tail on the move.
