This was the 11th time I have judged this variety, so by know exhibitors will know I donít like big, exaggerated or nervous. Not a big entry and some dogs I have admired from afar not present, you have to be in it to win it. Those present were generally of good quality, well presented and sound in temperament. 
PD (2) Different in type and both with a lot of virtues. 1 Chauhan, Neithund Angus At Raajput. Would like him shorter in loin and back for ideal balance, but has a firm topline and better feet than 2. Conical ahead, dark eyes. Long neck. Slightly forward in shoulder. Long keel. Well spring ribs. Good rear with low hocks. Parallel mover with lengthy stride. He presents a classical Dachshund outline. CC & BP. 2 Chapman-Reith, Hayvenhund Hunky Dory. He has better proportions than a 1. Liked his head. Dark, almond eyes. Long neck. Enough forechest. Well sprung ribs. Can settle in topline. More moderate in rear than 1 and slightly narrow coming towards but a dog that should do v well. 
JD (1) 1 Young, Craimose Adonis. He has a super outline and ideal proportions. Liked his conical head with correct width and length. Lengthy neck. Well laid shoulder. Good ribs. Level topline ok rear. Could be better out and back and just a bit more at one with handler. 
YD (3,1) 1 Rycroft, Fantastic Frank at Trisensara JW. Liked him for size and proportions, could loose a little weight to advantage. Super head. V good eyes and ears. Long neck. His angulation is a bit moderate but v well balanced. Well ribbed. Level in topline. 2 Graham, Marvale Chancellor at Ravold. Bigger d but I liked his outline. Masc head. Lengthy neck. Quite a good front. Would like better feet. Level topline. Could be shorter in loin. Not as good on move as 1. 
PGD (1) 1 Rycroft, Jacksondax Hornet Hurrah JW. Really liked his size and proportions, probably the best in the entry in that regard. He has a long head. Slight stop. Well set ears. Long neck. Could be slightly better in shoulder and longer in upper arm. Moderate forechest. Well ribbed bed back to a short loin. Level topline. Well made rear. Accurate on move, could just stride more. RCC. 
LD (1) 1 Small, Imp Almaznyi Laretz Ershalaim At Devondax. Good honest type of smooth. Masc head. Ears could be better set. Medium neck. Quite a good front. Would like better feet and more slope in pastern. Deep chest. Longer in loin than ideal. Level topline. Well made rear, could just be more positive going away. 
MPB (1) 1 Cox & Cox, Bulldaxit Sooner Or Later. V fem b of good size and proportions. Liked her head, eyes could be bigger. Enough neck. Quite a good front. Level topline. Could be shorter in loin. Well made rear. Can settle moving. 
PB (1) 1 Chapman-Reith, Hayvenhund Hissy Fit. Fem pup of v good proportions, rather proud of her tail but that could settle. Quite a good head, a bit deep in stop. Medium neck. Quite a good shoulder. Enough forechest. Well ribbed. Firm topline. Ok rear. Could be firmer out and back. 
LB (3,2) 1 Small, Ulybka Fortuny Zlatovlaska At Devondax (Imp Rus) Standing she has a super shape. She is v fem in head, almond, dark eyes. She has a lengthy neck. Turns for front feet in. Deep chest. Well sprung ribs. Somewhat long in loin. Well made rear. Could have a better topline on the move. In super condition. 
OB (4) 1 Chauhan, Ch Adnerbs Take A Chance On Me At Raajput. Top quality b. She is longer than ideal and could have better feet, but that is about all I would change on her. Super head with fabulous eye and expression. Long neck. Well laid shoulder. Long and sloping upper arm. Despite her extra length holds a perfect topline. Super rear. Accurate mover and such a long and free stride. Was my BIS last year at Great Joint and today CC & BOB. 2 Hanney-Mitchell, Ch Bronia Solar Flare. I actually preferred the proportions on this quality b. She has a super head, ears slightly long. Good neck. Her angulations are v well balanced. Deep chest. Could have less loose skin and a certain softness to her. Slightly proud of tail but she is a v good mover holding her topline v well. RCC
