South Wales KA 2015
Thank you for inviting me to judge this prestigious show. I enjoyed my day with you all. Grateful thanks to my steward who helped sort out an awkward moment. Overall since I last judged them I was pleased with the condition, structure & temperament of dogs under me today, both Standard & Miniature with one exception.
JD & PGD (0). OD (2) 1 Armstrong’s Lauralee Nicholas Nickelby, just my type, loved this boy, a Dachshund as it should be within our Standard. Strong, of good size & powerful, masculine head & dark eyes, prominent forechest, good width between front legs, well padded feet on good strong legs, good length of body, clean underline, powerful quarters with good turn of stifle, sadly lacking today in so many. Moved around the ring with drive & purpose, could really do a day’s work, a dog fit for function, well done to his breeders. BD, BOB & G4; 2 Jones’ Hampdach Who Made Who for Adnerb.
JB 1 Allam’s Levelis Ma Blushin Rosie to Maganhol, withheld & withdrawn. PGB 1 Bennett’s Shardaroba Dream Baby, feminine bitch with good reach of neck, leading into well placed shoulders, level topline kept on the move, long ribbing, clean underline, moved out well, well handled. BB; 2 Jones’ Hampdach In These Arms of Adnerb. OB 1 Armstrong’s Lauralee Lush Lashes, red bitch, good in head & eye, ample forechest, plenty of bone, lost her topline on the move, but plenty of drive from behind. RBB.
