Blackpool Championship Show 24th June 2023 Thank you to Blackpool for their kind invitation, which was originally to be 3 years ago, my two Stewards, Steve & Norrie were real gems; I think everyone appreciated the layout and large rings. It was a pleasure to judge this Breed which I enjoyed very much, there were some really good quality exhibits on the day, and I thank those who entered for their politeness and acceptance of the final placings. Dachshund (Long-Haired) Puppy Dog (2) 1 abs 1st O’Neill’s Ranglewood Finlaggan at Donnadach bl/tan with plenty of substance, wellshaped conical head, dark eye and displayed a good overall shape, good prominent forechest, elbows held nicely against ribcage, good feet & well off for bone, level backline held nicely, nicely angled quarters, moved out well in front but did bunny hop quite a bit in the windy condi?ons. Junior Dog (2) 1st Roberts Swansford Prestonador rich red/sable with lovely conical head shape of equal length, good expression, strong jaw & correct scissor bite, strong neck to well laid & angled shoulder, good prominent forechest & length to sternum, excellent ribcage well sprung, nicely rounded rump & muscled well angled quarters, strong hocks, feet with good thick pads & dark short nails; had exuberance on the move & showed personality, forward reach & good drive from his quarters with strong parallel ac?on showing his pads with an easy gait. Coat dense & of good quality; he was outstanding in the class & even more so in the Challenge, pleased to award him Dog CC & BOB and wish him the very best for his future career. Best Junior & very pleased to see he went Junior Group 3 later, well done. 2nd Reid’s Cavallibrook Final Legacy at Maudaxi very nice deep red with a\rac?ve overall look, masculine head, slight stop, shoulders placed well & had good width in front, ribs extending well back & blending nicely into abdomen, croup gently rounding to quarters, moved with forward reach but would prefer more drive off the rear quarters but unlucky to meet the winner on such top form as he’s a nice prospect. Limit Dog (1) 1st Cook & Rhodes Abydachs Free Spirit for Bournder, red with the most a\rac?ve head & good eye, was nicely constructed in front, short forearms, decent ribbing, slightly longer in loin, reasonably well angled quarters, strong hocks, nicely coated, tended to hop rather than move out so was difficult to assess his movement. Open Dog (4) 1 abs 1st Geeson’s Ch Abydachs Return of The Night deep red/sable, most a\rac?ve exhibit with lovely head shape & good eye, strong & good neck into nicely laid shoulder, good return & elbows ?ght to ribcage, prominent forechest & good ribbing, strength of loin to nicely angled quarters, coat in beau?ful condi?on, he looked a picture moving & was pleased to award him the Reserve Dog CC. 2nd Roberts Ch Swansford Gregorydor, lovely masculine red/sable very similar colouring, masculine in head, strong jaw & correct den??on, lovely propor?ons & super angula?on front & rear, well sprung ribcage & short strong loin, strong rump, tail set good & held well, moved out freely with purpose & lost out by a whisker to 1 who I felt just had the edge in this class today. 3rd Garlick’s Ranglewood Harvest Song Veteran Dog (4) 1 abs 1st Garlick’s Ranglewood Arashi deep red/sable of 9 years, nice overall outline, he had a nicely shaped head & good eye, strength of jaw, lovely strong neck to well laid shoulder, good forechest, feet ?ght with thick pads, ribbing good but would prefer slightly more body, level backline, rounded rump & well angled quarters, good ground clearance & moved well enough to win the class and was Best Veteran. 2nd Hirst’s Ranglewood Lantana at Kejana 8-year-old black/tan, bigger & rangier than 1 & preferred head of winner, nicely laid shoulder & good forehand, well bodied with good ribbing but a shade longer in loin, nice strong back, angled rear, moved soundly but needed more posi?vity. 3rd Chapman’s Melminds Zsylvester ShCM Puppy Bitch (4) 1st Geeson’s Abydachs Hot Patoo?e fell in love with this lovely red, liked her femininity & overall balance, perfect head shape & strength without any coarseness, lovely strong neck to correctly laid shoulder, good return, excellent feet, good forechest & prosternum of length, underline blending nicely, well sprung ribs & strong topline, muscled loin & good quarters, parallel hocks used very well driving evenly across the ring, a showgirl too. Best Puppy 2nd Heap’s Ranglewood Katrine black/tan who nearly threw away her chances but her overall good construc?on couldn’t be denied here & she displayed good balance; obviously need to se\le but has plenty of ?me to do so, deserved her placing. 3rd Chapman’s Melminds Up On The Catwalk Junior Bitch (3) 1st Hanney-Mitchell’s Cavallibrook Final Fling Bronia rich red & what a cracker, couldn’t get her out of my mind; has aetude, nice for size & looks like a hunter but is feminine with good conical head & lovely eye, overall construc?on is as good as you would expect from her wellpropor?oned stacked outline & underline, super body & gleaming condi?on, moved out with ease, purpose & drive demanding a\en?on. Bitch CC. 2nd Roberts Swansford Aquadora beau?fully constructed light red of huge appeal, feminine well shaped head & good eye, good earset, front construc?on was super, elbows held ?ghtly, good long ribcage blending nicely, strong loin & good well angled rear, good hocks & tailset. A delighgul prospect who should gain her ?tle with ease, today she tended to lean on the go around in the windy condi?ons, sound as a pound, loved her. 3rd Garlick’s Kyrenia Queens Request with Ranglewood Yearling Bitch (3) 1st Whigield-Roberts Swansford Patriciadora beau?ful red/sable of quality throughout, gorgeous headpiece, dark eye of good shape, strength of jaw, lovely strong neck, shoulder & upper arm good, strength of body with prominent forechest, lovely ribbing, strong loin, quarters good, moving well in the class showing soundness & purpose. 2nd Paget & Carroll’s Cavallibrook Final Say at Marvale nicely presented feminine black/tan with excellence right through her body, lovely balance & construc?on, beau?ful condi?on & coat & has a style about her, moved out well with reach & drive should make up. 3rd Foley’s Beauty Long at Clavennae Post Graduate Bitch (4) 1st Chapman’s Melminds Meryl Streep very a\rac?ve red, handled to perfec?on she had a lovely strength to her head, super expression & dark eye, good well feathered ears, lovely length of neck to nicely laid shoulder & good return, forelegs held well under her, long ribcage & strong loin with excellent shape over her backline to nicely angled rear & strong hocks, she moved out very well in this class with reach & rear drive, beau?ful condi?on. 2nd Rodrigues Amberteckel Bal?c Dawn at Islewin red who had a slightly broader back skull, nice dark eye, not the forechest of 1 & slightly longer cast, her ribs were well sprung & front & rear angles were matching, lightly feathered coat, needs to move with more purpose but she displayed soundness & differences are always frac?onal. 3rd Nicholson’s Zarcrest Jennifer Lawrence at Betsymira Limit Bitch (5) 1st Garlick’s Ranglewood Islay rich red with near perfect head, beau?ful young lady with very good front angles good forechest & ribbing well back, well bodied, strong rump & muscle tone, angled quarters, she moved well in this class but faded a bit in the Challenge; well presented. 2nd Chapman’s Melminds Make Them Gold nice looking red, lovely eye, liked her overall shape, body & construc?on but she lost out here with lack of reach & posi?ve drive, I think some of the exhibits were struggling with the windy condi?ons. 3rd Cheese’s Ranglewood Titania at Suecaseus Open Bitch (4) 1 abs 1st Geeson’s Ch Abydachs Fire in Her Soul gorgeous rich red & another lovely exhibit from this kennel shown in ?p top condi?on, beau?ful outline with good construc?on throughout, perfect body condi?on & tone, well off for bone & good propor?ons, moved out well with good carriage & was so close to the top spot, pleased to award her the Reserve Bitch CC. 2nd Roberts Ch Swansford Glendadora gorgeous red of quality which this kennel seems to turn out ?me aler ?me, great aetude & super head & expression, well-propor?oned with good angles and good topline, she was just slightly more controlled in her movement here today but a lovely exhibit and worthy Champion. 3rd Chapman’s Melminds Maybelline Jill Cross (Gilari)
