I would like to thank the committee of The southern Dachshund Association for inviting me to judge the standard smooths and greatly appreciate the exhibitors that entrusted me to go over their lovely dogs on the day.All were presented beautifully and have super temperaments.

MPD   (4)


1st   Tite, Phaeland Special Driver.

Very smart red in excellent coat and body condition.Balanced head with dark oval eye,good expression.Smooth flow from the top of his head through his shoulders to his tail,prominent prosternum .

Well ribbed and good depth of keel,nicely angulated front and rear,tight feet and correct tail set.Good width throughout.Moved out well around the ring keeping his topline ,parallel fore and aft.

2nd Jeffrey—Carpaccio Swan Song at Andax

Another lovely puppy in excellent coat and body condition,strong head and dark oval eye.Good width throughout,prominent prosternum and well sprung ribs.Tidy feet and good tail set.

Was all at one with his handler and moved out well around the ring.Just preferred the infill of 1 coming towards me.

3rd—Mrs W Starkey –Carpaccio Topic of The Day is Hamoura


PD      (2)

1st Caroe, Matzell Magnus

Dark red in super condition,lovely to go over on the table .Strong masculine head and jowl.Clean neck running onto good shoulder placement,well sprung ribs of good length ,short loin and hammy rear.Looked a picture on the table.He did give his handler a hard time moving at times but can be forgiven as it was the first show for both handler and dog and I am sure with time he will settle nicely. BP

2nd Hone, Pachego Compare The Markets with Oxondachs

Black and tan puppy who was much more settled showing.In good coat and body condition,not quite the topline of 1 and a little short in ribbing.

3rd Steel & Aitken Proud Hunter Big Mac(Imp HUN)


JD (1)

1st Armstrong, Lauralee Nicholas Nickleby

Super bodied Blk and Tan dog in superb condition.Strong Masculine head and strong jowl.Good width and depth throughout,well sprung ribbing of good length,nicely angulated rear with hammy bottom.Tidy feet and correct tailset.He was definately considered for top honours,it all came down to tidier rear movement on the day.


PGD (1,1a)


LD 6

This was a difficult class for me to judge,they were all different types.

1st Tite, Rijobeau Hot On Ya Heels

Blk and tan dog,He won this class because of his length and depth of ribbing and overall width throughout and fairly tight elbows.Strong head and dark oval eye.nicely angulated,hammy rear.

He moved out very parallel fore and aft but do wonder if allowed his head a little more he would reach out better in front giving a more settled profile picture.

2nd Ellis, Tealby Red Sail in The Sunset.

Taller type to 1,Good looking dog ,masculine head with strong jowl.Clean neck running onto level topline,good tail set,tight feet,in good coat condition,just would like more body on him to finish the picture.Strided out in profile and very parallel going away showing good clean hocks.

3rd McNaughton---Cedavoch Sanquhar.


OD (5)

Super Class ,all a real pleasure to go over.

1st  Higgins Leveliss Saucy Sailor

Blk and Tan of Superb quality.Very masculine head ,strong jaw and the darkest of eyes.He just flows from the top of his head through very clean  neck and shoulders,tight elbows  into a level topline.Well sprung ribbing of good length and depth and nicely angled front and rear.Just so balanced all through and not overdone in any way.He just flowed around the ring covering the ground with ease and has superb parallel movement.

I was thrilled to award him the CC which I learnt was his 3rd well done.

2nd Seago &  Gibbard Ch Amlida Dramatiker

Another super dog and a very worthy champion. Again so good to go over and to watch moving around the ring,In great coat and body condition.It was a very close decision and just splitting hairs in the end.  RCC.

3rd Hunt Ch Cwmharian Hogan’s Hero at Carpaccio


MPB (4)


1st Tite    Phaeland Starlite Dancer

Quality red puppy,sister to mpd,like peas in a pod!

Conical head ,dark oval eye,lovely expression.Well off for bone,tight feet ,good tailset.superb topline and underline.She looked good in profile and moving fore and aft .An easy winner in this class.

2nd Raggett, Dansila Reach for the stars

Finer bitch,taller and elegant.conical head and dark eye,in good coat condition,just a very raw baby that needs time to develop.She showed well for her handler.

3rd Piggott Alexia-Anais V.D. Wouwerfor Merriteckels (imp)


PB (5,2a)

1st Jones Hampdach In These Arms of Adnerb

Red bitch in good coat and body condition,conical head and dark eye ,good earset and expression.Very elegant neck running down onto clean shoulders.Length and depth of ribbing good ,nicely angulated rear,tight feet.Needs to stride out more on the move to show her off at her best.

2nd Marsh Bonavoir Amaryllis at Marshwick

Blk and tan bitch.Attractive head and correct earset.Reasonable neck but did not have the flow from head through neck and topline  to finish the picture and cuts up underneath.

3rd Steel, Morailsa Simply Sybil with Steelthorn


JB (3)


1st Jones Hampdach In These Arms Of Adnerb

2nd Morgan Aitken, Morailsa Secret Romance For Demorgan

Good coat and condition,would benefit from a little less coverage overall but has an attractive head and good expression.Looking heavy across the shoulders and is a little deep in keel which makes her cut up underneath.She actually looks better on the move than standing and strides out well with parallel movement for and aft.

3rd Hone, Oxendachs Enchanted



PGB (5,2a)


1st Marsh, Marshwick Harmony

Blk And tan ,conical head and good earset .depth and length of ribbing okay,oval throughout,correct tail set.Moved out with verve holding her topline and is very parallel in fore and aft movement.

2nd Morgan Aitken, Moiralsa Secret Romance for Demorgan

3rd Valentine, Amilda Elise


LB (6,1a)


Lovely class

1st Hunt, Sontag Shanda Leah

What a stunner,my pick of the day! Red bitch of top quality,could not fault her in any way.So well balanced throughout.Just so pleasing to watch on the move.I was thrilled to award her her first CC and BOB

2nd Dare, Hampdach One Way or Another

Another beautifully balanced bitch of top quality in fabulous condition didn’t put a foot wrong. Like 1 excels on the move.RCC

3rd Armstrong Lauralee Lush Lashes


OB  (5) Another super class


1st Higgins Ch Leveliss What She Said

Super bitch with champion stamped right through,loved her depth and balance and clearance to power around the ring.So good to get your hands on.

2nd Seago & Gibbard, Ch Amilda Evora

Again another bitch with champion stamped right through ,in top condition , super to go over ,such a very hard decision,just feel very honoured to have had the pleasure of going over her .
