DACHSHUND - MINIATURE SMOOTH HAIRED
PD (6,3) 1 Ergis Siouxline
Zebedee. Correct clean lines presenting a good balanced shape, well ribbed into
a strong loin. Moved well in the slightly too long grass. BD & BP. 2. Hunt &
Tarn's Poughleyvale Magic Man At Carpaccio. Not as mature as 1st and just
lacked the substance I would like, but has time on his side. Good colour and
condition again moved well. 3 Punter's Welcumen Guinness.
JD (3,2) West & Rogers Dinkelbui Lional. Good front construction into correct length of ribbing. Would have liked a little more to the head in terms of proportions to body.
PGD (1) 1 West & Rogers Dinklesbui Louis. Not the bravest of souls on the table. Markings were not as good as I would like for a Black & tan. Moved well and kept topline on the move. Pulled into a reasonable shape when stacked. A sturdy type.
OD (3,2) 1 Ergis Siouxline Timon. Lovely forehand with correct front construction with a good neck and shoulders in to a strong topline. Moved well enough would just like a little less length of loin. RBD.
PB (8,1) Salisbury's Brocklewood Calypso. Pretty feminine head with a nice expression. Well constructed front assembly. Moved well enough over the ground just a slight too much of a rise over the loin but should settle with age. 2 Spencer's Chelridge Carolina Red. Correct rear construction and moved out with purpose around the ring. Not quite as well made in the front as 1st. 3 Phillips Lilydach Velvet Night at Daxphilly.
JB (4,2) 1 Bourne's Yaapeet Matilda. Unfortunate that the tan markings ran out underneath. However moved well and kept topline on the move. Nice rear end construction and good placement of keel on the ribbing. 2 Phillips Mosiarto Top Totty at Daxphilly. Movement was best today especially the rear movement. And looking somewhat tucked up in loin.
PGB (3) 1 Reed's Cedax Octavia Surprise for Deercroft JW. Nice head and soft expression. Good neck and shoulders and lay of front construction. Nice length of rib into the loin. Moved well. Would have liked a slightly stronger tan colour. RBB. 2 Salisbury Brocklewood Black Velvet. Would have liked a little less of her all over. Just lost her topline on the move with a slight drop off at the croup.
OB (4) 1 Hunt's Cwmdarhian Back to Alabama a Carpaccio. Pretty head and expression. Moved well both ends and kept a correct topline on the move in profile. Correct rear construction and drive from the rear end. Preferred the overall balance of her compared to 2nd. BB & BOB & shortlisted in the Group. 2 Ergis Siouxline Thomasina JW. Again another quality bitch moved as equally well around the ring as 1st. Good front construction and well placed back keel. Would have liked a little less in the loin. 3 Hughes Minmead Maid To Love Fo Julidachs. Breeders Mrs S Ergis. Siouxline.
