This variety of Dachshund impressed me today with the overall quality within the breed.  Most heads were excellent shape, balanced & expressive,  front construction on the whole was pretty good,  as was length & depth of rib. In some classes I could have awarded first to several and it was a case of splitting hairs particularly in the bitches.

Minor Puppy Dog (4)
1.  Hunt's LAURALEE HUCKLEBERRY FINN AT CARPACCIO. At just 6 months this youngster shows lots of promise, perfect head shape with dark eye giving lovely expression, correct length with excellent ribbing carried back, good pro-sternum, sound quarters, balanced outline which he maintained on the move, I'm sure he'll have a bright future.  BEST PUPPY & pleased to see him go RESERVE BEST PUPPY IN SHOW.
2.  Chauhan's WANDERHUND VIVA LAS VEGAS.  Another promising puppy with lots to like, balanced head with correct eye shape, long neck leading into sound front assembly, well ribbed, good turn of stifle, he moved true fore & aft, just preferred outline of 1, but very nice baby.
Puppy Dog (2)
1.  Andison & Peel's CLENTRY PEPE LE PEW.  Extrovert brindle, loved his attitude and very happy nature,  a tad more on the leg than some but he is balanced all through. Lovely head & expression, good length of neck & ribbing carried back, firm backline, well turned stifles, he moved freely with drive.
2.  Paget & Carroll's LAURALEE OSCAR WILD AT MARVALE.  6 months litter brother to 1st in previous class and very nice he is too, typical head with correct eye, good neck & pronounced sternum, neat front, well ribbed, he was a little fidgety today and didn't move as well as 1 but he has many qualities and I'm sure will win well in the future.
Junior Dog (3,1a)
1.  Higgins' MEGANOL BLACK MUSKETEER OF LEVELISS.  This B/T 14 months boy has  correct head shape with lovely expression, sound front assembly with adequate pro-sternum & tight elbows, good length of ribbing, firm topline, would like a little more bend of stifle but his hind movement is parallel and he moved soundly.
2.  McNaughton's CEDAVOCH TROPICAL STORM.  Lovely red boy with plenty to like, unfortunately not moving soundly behind today, however his overall construction is good, lovely head & expression, long smooth ribbing, balanced outline with correct length,  a quality dog.

1.  Seago & Gibbard's AMLIDA ASTON.  Liked this boy's overall balance and true movement, good head shape & ear carriage, just a little round in eye, neat forehand with good pro-sternum & tight elbows, firm topline with good length of rib, well bent stifles,  maintained a nice outline on the move.
2.  Goffin-Thorogood's MATZELL MALIZANI.  Attractive red with many attributes, his head is balanced with correct eye shape, sound front assembly with adequate forechest, ribbing carried back, strong quarters, he moved well but was a touch apprehensive on the table.
LImit Dog (9,2a)
1.  Kerry's KIRETON BEAU DIDDLEY.  Masculine B/T with a super front, lovely to go over,  great depth throughout but with sufficient ground clearance, well placed shoulders with tight elbows & deep keel going through to a long smooth ribcage, firm topline, well turned stifles, he moved true fore & aft maintaining a balanced outline. RES.CC.
