Since judging the breed last the Breed Standard has been revised with regards to the ratio of height to length and this certainly influenced some of my decisions. One of my concerns last time I judged was that many exhibits were not balanced, and this is still the case, many were very short in the tibia, it is impossible for a Dachshunds hind end to have the required 90 degree angles if the tibia is short, the result, straight stifles. Feet on the whole were very poor with thin spreading pads. On the day, with the exception of one exhibitor, everyone took my decisions in good part considering that I was a replacement judge, I do hope Mr Mather will be well enough to return to his duties soon 
MPD (3) 1 Wharton’s Elmore James Greyhayne. Masculine head. Correct coat. Rather steep in shoulder at present, and long in loin. Well angulated hind end. Movement OK. 2 Howlett & Prowting’s Boloria Fine Spice. Well up in the leg. Lovely head. Well angulated hind end. Movement OK. 3 Russell & Hutchings’ Collidach Russell Leeves. 
PD (6,1) 1 Vines’ Cishelvine Coriolanus. Lovely red dog, best front construction, and best feet in the class. Moves well fore and aft. Would prefer a more almond shaped eye. Shorter in loin than most. Created a super outline stood and on the move. Best dog puppy. 2 Wharton’s Szymon Majewski Vh Rulwielse. Smart wild boar with fabulous coat. Not quite the front of 1, as shorter in upper arm. Moved well fore and aft, giving a lovely outline on the move. 3 Moore & Dean’s Upor Von Huberhornwith Dierfiur (Imp Rom). 
JD (5,2) 1 Vine’s Cishelvine Quinillion. Still very raw but had by far the best construction in the class. Very good feet. Excellent free movement, just needs to body up. 2 Shaw’s Tendrow Will I Am. Lovely red, plenty of him. Pleasing head. Super outline on the move, but sadly would not let me assess him properly on the table. 3 Adams Ellesophia Fly Me To The Moon. 
PGD (7) 1 Mountford’s Incordemeo Beetle About. Loved this exhibit. Aristocratic head, with great reach of neck. Feet better than most. Well angulated front and rear. Beautiful outline on the move. From a distance you could be looking at a Smooth, just the furnishings giving it away. I was very tempted to award him the CC but he wasn’t quite as polished as the Open winner in the Challenge. 2 Best’s Stanegate Set Em Up Joe For Bestina. A rather naughty boy that doesn’t immediately catch the eye, but very honest. Better feet than most and strides out well. The handler could get so much more out of him, I would recommend a change of lead. 3 Wills’ Kasalane Ostiriato Over Cishelvine. 
LD (11,4) 1 Norman’s Silvae Trade Name. Very happy chap. Attractive head with reachy neck. Excellent construction front and rear. Tail set a little high, but by far the best construction in the class. 2 Ord & Ainsley’s Cloudside Sebastian Of Marnadee. A bit on the big side for my tastes, but has a well constructed front and good feet. Hind end not as well angulated as front. Beautifully presented, and moved out well. 3 Matthews Stanegate Billy The Kid At Sonham. 
OD (5) 1 Vlad Megline British Tobacco. Of outstanding construction. Arrogant masculine head, good enough jacket. Moved really freely. Wouldn’t want him any bigger. Sometimes his topline falls away from the withers when stood, but not on the move and won the Dog CC on his free movement and superb construction. 2 Phillips’ Ch. Royal Pepper’s Vice Versa. Smaller dog. Well constructed , kept his outline at all times stood and on the move, very sound. Preferred the rear end of 1. 3 Carruthers’ Ch Aikton Alexander At Stanegate.
VD (1) 1 Coverley’s Ch Avantine Jamaica Inn. Nearly 10 years and not showing his age at all. Correctly constructed , no exaggeration and moved really well. Super feet. Well angulated and well muscled behind with correct topline at all times. An absolute credit to his owner. Best Veteran. 
SBD (3) 1 Tinker-Haldane’s Dollydash Never Enough. Has the better construction, and is shorter coupled. Nice jacket, though head needed attention. Again, I would suggest a different lead. 2 Horne’s Salixian Morroccan Mint. Well presented. Again short coupled. Preferred the front of 1, and pasterns need strengthening. 3 Mason’s Bramalodge Bet On The Blues 
MPB (2) 1 Hutchings’ Collidach Raynee Day. Red bitch right up my street. Well constructed, with excellent parallel hind movement. Lovely jacket, super outline stood and on the move. Best Puppy. 2 Graham Boloria Wild Spice. Fabulous jacket. Preferred the front of 1, but nevertheless a promising puppy. Pasterns need strengthening. 
PB (8,3) 1 Pughe & Fraser’s Bystock Sea Nymph. Very promising puppy, beautifully handled and presented. Best front in class and with more hind angulation the most. Lovely outline stood and on the move. 2 Rowe’s Boloria Sugar ‘N Spice. Another promising puppy of only 6 months. Lovely jacket. Free moving. 3 Matthews Stanegate Senorita.
JB (10,1) 1 Howlett & Phillips’ Tendrow Makes The Right Turn. Fabulous outline stood and on the move. Really well balanced having correct angulation front and rear. Pretty head, with a very good jacket. Made life very hard for her handler. 2 Coverley’s Aventine Aunt Patience. Very nice honest bitch. Had she been in full coat she may well have taken the class. Just the right size, lovely reach of neck, with good angulation fore and aft. 3 Waller’s Lady In Roseyred. 
PGB (7,3) 1 Mountford’s Incordemeo My Story. Very similar to her brother who won PG Dog and the reserve CC. Not quite as all together yet. 2 Phillips’ Tendrow What I Am I Am. Lovely red bitch, super outline stood and on the move. Correct angulation front and rear. Super jacket. Hind movement not quite so parallel as 1. 3 Brierley’s Bramalodge Bonfire Heart At Tatze. 
LB (10,2) 1 Hanney-Mitchell, McCalmont & McCalmont’s Silvae Time After Time At Bronia. No exaggeration here, so well balanced. Haughty, aristocratic head and expression, with good reach of neck. Feet better than many. Correct angulation front and rear providing true sound movement at both ends. Lovely outline stood and on the move. Sufficient ground clearance to comply with the new Breed Standard. Expertly handled and presented, I hear she gained her crown the next day, I’m not remotely surprised. Bitch CC & BOB. 2 Mountford’s Tendrow Special Creation. Gorgeous bitch, lovely shape. Good jacket. Superb front, with good hind angulation. Lost out to 1 on her feet. 3 Phillips’ Tendrow Wired To Succeed. 
OB (6,1) 1 Sail On Sailor To Full Circle. Nice size and not overly long. Correct angulation fore and aft, and moved out really well. Good jacket and better feet than most. Would like more ground clearance, and preferred the head and expression of the Limit bitch winner when it came to the Challenge. Res CC. 2 Hutchings Ch Collidach Brook Ling. Very nice bitch with lovely outline. Super construction. Lost out to 1 on feet. 3 McCalmont’s Ch Silvae Fan Dancer. 
SBB (4) 1 Mountford Incordemeo Angel Beside Me. Very honest bitch, well constructed and very feminine. Keeps outline stood and on the move. Well presented. 2 Parrot. Derochaise Blue Angel At Marondera. Super coated bitch. Not the front of 1 but pleasing outline on the move. Lovely feminine head. 3 Hudson-Lund Hototo Ain’t She Sweet.
