Dachshund ( Smooth Haired)

Judge : Terry Edge

SMOOTH HAIRED All bitches on the day. Where have all the young men gone?!.

PB (2). 1 Thompson’s Spengretta Shooting Star. A very nice bitch full of quality, good front and follow through, keeping top line on the move and stood. She is a little on the close side in rear, good head, neck and shoulder, BP; 2 Punter’s Kiddles First Choice for Welcumen. Nice type of smooth, size good. She is my type being long and low with a level top line, she was rather unsettled, perhaps needs more time. Again moving rather close in rear.

JB (1). 1 Walkley’s Follicott Angel One Five. B/t bitch of 12 and a half months. Carrying far too much weight was very unsure of herself. Good front and shoulder, but again moving close behind in good condition perhaps a little too much.

PGB (1). 1 Boyd’s Fuzaketa Amaryllis. C/tan girl, my favourite colour in smooth. Good top line, good head and eye, nice neck into good shoulder, moved nicely, she is rather short in keel giving her too much length of loin. Lacking a little in hind angulation, moved very well with confidence.

LB (2). 1 Turner’s Marrictur Morgan La Fay. Takes your eye as soon as you see her. Terrific keel extending well back giving length of rib and nice short loin. Attractive head, ear set and kind expression. Has the best of shoulders, moved well both ways. Had to be BB and BOB; 2 Punter’s Roleta Spoilt for Choice at Welcumen. Smart b/t girl still suffering from maternal duties. A very neat girl with good neck and shoulders. Keeps a good outline on the move, one to be proud of, super expression.

OB (1). 1 Turner’s Ch Maricctur Marnie. This six year old bitch in super condition and moved like on half her age. Top and under line very pleasing, very good front with the best of shoulders. Liked her a lot. Had to stand back on the day for her daughter, RBB.
