The Midland Dachshund Club Championship Show Saturday 24th July 2018 held in conjunction with the Hound Association at Stafford Agricultural Show ground
Thank you to all exhibitors and committee for a lovely day. Being indoors had some draw backs and some positives with the windows and doors open it generally had a through breeze that made it more comfortable for the dogs and humans alike. To see the dogs free stand is a pleasure and gives the natural stance and shape. I found some dogs with misplaced teeth and heavily boned exhibits which made them look cloddy. On the plus side most dogs were in well toned condition with strong easily seen feet and short nails. I felt very spoilt for choice today.
1. McCalmont - Silvae Trader - Smart brindle young man Lovely hound head with almond eyes well filled chest and good ground clearance lovely length of neck well laid shoulders and good hind angulation need a little more time to firm up
2. Maes-Jones Derochaise Manhatton B/T boy not the same fill of chest. Nicely laid shoulders and well sprung ribs moved well
3. Stockdale Derochaise Monterrey at Fenwires
1. Wharton Greyhayne Hooray Henry Breed type head conical in shape giving almond shape dark eyes, clean full front with close fitting elbows, good depth and length to ribbing, firm in topline, enough bone and strong broad deep feet he moved out soundly. Finished with a lovely harsh coat and well muscled condition. RCC.
2. Adams - Wyldetarn Shoot from the Hip JW Pleasing forechest full and capacious nicely shaped eye long muscular neck ample bone, firm topline at times carried his tail a little high at times.
3. Fitches - Derochaise Master Design
Post Graduate Dog
1. Vig Q-rrens-Dax Enzo-Topazo Brindle jacket pleasing hound head shoulder lay could be better well muscled through-out.
2. Howe Kissdachs Bilbo at Bramalodge Finding 2 shows in one day too much. Bright alert dark eyes well furnished head, beard and eyebrows the better harsh jacket lovely filled chest and keel a little difficult to assess on the move.
1. Moore Cloudside Picasso A big lad, bags of bone and ample ground clearance. Plenty of furnishings and full beard almond eye long strong neck into shoulder angles equally matched by hind angulation he moved with purpose.
2. North-Row Tendrow One More Time Barmaud - Lots to like about this red boy although he was carrying a little extra today which gave him his place. Well groomed out with harsh red jacket tight broad feet and well angled shoulders ample spring of ribs and strong loin he moved with a free positive stride.
3. Gibson Allfreys London Look
1. Wharton & Pughe Ch Derochaise Black Tarquin This young man is in his prime he was perfectly presented with no fluffy bits to accentuate or hide anything. He took everything in his stride. Lovely houndy head, dark almond shaped eye giving the required intelligent, courageous look. Strong long neck into well laid shoulders suitably sprung ribs extending correctly back muscular loin and matching hind angles he stood on tight well knuckled feet and demanded attention spirited and intelligent. On the move he was free and powerful covering the ground with ease CC.
2. McCalmont Silvae Kinsman this young man has time to mature both mentally and physically. Typical hound head conical in shape enough stop, well furnished eyebrows and beard. Prominent keel when not paying attention stood close infront. Well muscled throughout. Excellent harsh jacket on the move he was powerful and keen to get on.
3. Gibson Allfreys Heres Lookin at You.
1. Seath Ch Zlowfox Av Larhjelm at Sunsong (Imp Nor) A worthy champion that was in for consideration. Reaching length of neck sound shoulders firm topline shown in well toned condition with full round hind. He moved with assured confidence.
1. Maes-Jones - Ch Derochaise Black Orchid One I have admired from ring side before she belies her age. A gentle intelligent eye that has seen everything enough furnishings full strong scissor bite, oval chest in keeping with well sprung ribs strong loin and round well muscled rump which she used on the move. She strode out with a sound positive action and a credit to her family.
2. Coverley Ch/Ir Ch Aventine Shaken Not Stirred Another lady Ive enjoyed watching. Strong, prominent chest well sprung ribs, not as positive on the move as one today.
Minor Puppy Bitch
1. North Row & Martin Full circle Barmaud Florence RAF Exciting young puppy lovely chest with good forechest well laid shoulders and depth of chest ample ribbing matching hind quarters still loose on the move but plenty of time.
1. McCalmont Silvae Trademark At the older end of puppy and more mature although still needing time to finish filling out for her age she is at a good stage of development. Lovely length of neck firm topline well angulated hind quarters. Positive on the move finished with an excellent harsh jacket. Puppies change places regularly, the future is bright. BP
