Birmingham National 2007
Dachshund (Smooth Haired)
Judge: Mrs Lovaine Coxon
pd (3,1) 1 Bethel’s Hampdach Celebrity. A very raw puppy with real potential. Good forechest, well muscled hindquarters. 2 Starkey’s Carpaccio Top of the Class. Very unsettled on the table, liked his substance.
JD (5) 1 Dalgety’s Thundergay Arch Duke. Another with substance. Level topline and underline. Well muscled. 2 Walkley’s Churchoak Cardinalsin. Loved the type and shape of this choc/tan. Have admired him many times from the rinside. Unsettled on the table. 3 Wilberg and Blackburn-Bennett’s Coupduvent Del Conteverde at Kanix (Imp).
PGD (4) 1 Macdonald’s Carpaccio Black Out at Bensarka. Smart black and tan with hard, clean outline. Well filled front on well cared for feet. 2 Eales and Tite’s Lauralee the X Factor. Smaller than the winner, but of similar shape. Unsettled by the noisy surroundings. 3 Jeffery’s Rosenket Heir Apparent at Andax.
LD (8,1) 1 Eales and Tite’s Lauralee Role of Honour via Rijobeau. Red, loved his well filled front and forechest. His happy temperament also appealed. Res CC. 2 Wolage’s Matzell Milord. Clean outline when posed but lost it on the move. Good forechest. 3 Joy’s Rosenket Hot Property with Morailsa.
OD (3) 1 Lusk’s Ch Cedavoch Celebdil. Totally balanced male with a clean outline. Level topline, well filled underline. Sound movement both ways and a sensible, calm temperament. CC. 2 Melbourne’s Sunhaze St John of Melriding. Red and different type to the winner. Anotger with a calm and sensible temperament. 3 Harris’ Hun Ch Marictur Moliere Re (Imp).
PB (6,1) 1 Ellis’ Tealby Taken As Read. My notes read ‘ where did she come from?’ Lovely feminine puppy of gorgeous type. Correct shoulder placement, level topline and sound movement. Best Puppy. 2 Hunt’s Carpaccio Precious Pearl. Another with a sharp, clean outline with correct construction throughout. 3 Bethel’s Hampdach Gemstone.
JB (7,1) 1 Norton’s Matzell Maid of Honour. It pained me to separate first and second as I have admired both many times. The winner was of the type this breeder produced in the past. Very feminine and of ideal size. Beautiful front, great on the move. 2 Bethel’s Hampdach Duncina. Different type to the winner. Very elegant and smart on the move. Lovely clean outline held at all times. 3 Dalgety’s Thundergay Magdelena.
PGB (4) 1 Melbourne’s Lauralee Take That to Melriding. Another feminine bitch of ideal size. Did not always co-operate with her handler whilst posed but moved well. 2 Ellis’ Jotosu Lulu Guiness of Tealby. Very much liked this but was carrying too much weight. I would like to see her after a diet and some hard roadwork. 3 Hinwood’s Longmel Sparkler.
LB (2) 1 Bethel’s Hampdach Alinga. Beautiful deep red with a clean and classical outline. Long elegant neck, moved with drive. Res CC. 2 Mitchell’s Dubreys Dora the Explora. Heavier type than the winner. Plenty of substance, a very happy exhibit.
OB (3) 1 McNaughton’s Ch Cedavoch Arwen. Have admired this bitch since she came out as a puppy. She has bone, substance and remains totally feminine. Calm and sensible temperament. CC and BOB, litter sister to the DCC. 2 Rawson and Walkley’s Churchoak Hot Gossip about Rosenket. Larger than the winner and also with a calm and easy temperament. 3 Mercieca and Mercieca’s Malta Ch Emmanuela Nera at Chebec.
