May I thank the miniature Dachshund Club for their kind invitation to judge. This was my first time judging this variety of dachshund, my main winners pleased me being unexaggerated with good balance and outlines both stacked and on the move. Having said that there was a variety of type over the entry with some too low to the ground whilst others were too exaggerated in length, one or two were bordering on being too big. A couple topped the scales and there were a couple who although not thin would have benefitted with a little more padding. Overall movement needs addressing as many are short in upper arm giving a very short choppy front action and rear action needs to drive the dog forward very few have correctly constructed rear ends to create the drive needed for this. I do think many would benefit from harder conditioning in the form of more sustained exercise. I know just how hard this has been this wet winter but you do have the advantage of not having to cope with long coats to dry and groom when you get home! Vet (3)1 Middleton's Bensarka Too Darn Hot for Lokmadi. 10 year old bitch belying her age. Well made with good balance with good top and underline held on the move. Correctly shaped head held on arched neck. One of the few who had correct length of ribbing and short loin. She really moved out well in the challenge, just pipped by the younger Open bitch. RCC. 2 Paterson's Yasmin Fire Babe Another ten year old lower to the ground than first and not moving as freely. Good overall shape held on the move. MPD (6,1)1 Carroll and Pagget's Bronia Valente. Good head and expression. Well balanced with a good outline held on the move. Preferred his overall type to second in class. 2 Watkinson's Manakoora Arookanam. Taller on the leg than first and not as mature. correct head with a well arched neck flowing into topline held on the move. Slightly out at elbow at the moment but this may tighten along with his back movement with maturity. PD (3,1)1 Hunt's Myforbe Matchmaker at Carpaccio. This boy looked really well stacked with a good front attractive head carried on a well shaped neck flowing into a good topline, with good length of ribbing. Just preferred the hind movement of cc winner in the challenge. RCC Best Puppy in Breed. 2 Heptinstall's Pascallie Blue Moon. Different type from first with a good head and expression, but not as balanced or as free on the move. JD(4)1 Melbourne's D'Arisca Flaunt it at Melridding. Neat well balanced red with good head shape and arched neck. Tight elbows with correct ribbing and short loin. Moved out well but I would prefer slightly more ground clearance. 2 Russell's Russteck Figgy Duff. Balanced dog with more ground clearance than first but not so good in front and rear angulation hence not the driving movement from the rear or the reach in front. yd (4)1 Burton's Swingletrees Razzamatazz JW. Red of balanced shape stacked and on the move good head on good length of neck. Better hind movement than many, just wish he would relax more when stacked. 2 Lee's Pyknikspring Kaisho. Bigger type altogether with less angulation throughout. Good head and length of neck. Held a good outline on the move. pgd (4,1) 1 Muggleton's Solar Flare at Mosiarto. Looked better stacked than on the move when his lack of angulation let him down. Reasonable head carried on good length of neck, would prefer longer ribbing. 2 Robertson's Mosiarto Masterpiece at Ravenwood. Better construction than first but wouldn't stand to be assessed on the table. Moved well and really got his place on his better movement over the rest of the class. ld (7,1)1 Daykin's Barratini Jonny Cash. Neat red with classic head, good front and length of ribbing. Kept a good top and underline on the move. Shame he just lacked that sparkle in the challenge as I really liked him. 2 Smith and Connor's Bronia Gregorio. More compact than first and not as correct in head, good body shape when stacked but high tail carriage spoilt his outline on the move. OD(6,1)1 Muggleton's Mosiarto Mister Big. Nothing big about this boy neat well shaped body with a good front correct length of ribbing with short loin, correct top and underline held on the move. Moved with drive round the ring. CC 2 Ergis's Ch Siouxline Levi. Taller type with good front and rear assembly. Pleasing head and expression. Not moving as well as first in class today. MPB (13,3)1 Salisbury's Brocklewood Black Rose. Mature puppy for age, correct head and eye shape with a pleasing expression. Good top and underline when stacked and held on the move, slightly taller on the leg with good front and hind angulation. 2 Stokes Webbers Swansong. Not as mature as first, good shape overall, with good topline held on the move. Not as much ground clearance as first but moved out well. PB (6,2)1 Muggleton's Mosiarto Miss Understood. Promising puppy with a good outline held at all times. Good front and hindquarters with better length of ribbing than most in this class. Moved with enthusiasm. Best Puppy Bitch. 2 Reed's Deercroft Spring Promise. Heavier type to first and not so positive when moving her high tail carriage doesn't help. Good head shape and reasonable front and hind angulation. JB (12,3)1 Blackburn-Bennett's Stargang Serena's Song. Red with correct proportions, and angulation. Good outline held on the move. 2 Caroll and Paget's Stargang Silver Star at Marvale. Dapple of more compact outline than first. Well shaped head and pleasing expression. Moved out well holding her top and underline at all times. YB (14,3)1 Kent's Lokmadi On Silent Wings. Well-proportioned bitch with a good head and expression. Good length of ribbing and short loin giving a good top and underline held at all times. 2 Blackburn's Stargang Desert Vixen. Good head and eye shape held on reasonable length of neck. Not the front and hind angulation of first, and consequently not the free movement of first. PGB (14,4)1 Andison and Peel's Clentry Despicable Me. Pale red with reasonable angulation, would prefer more length of upper arm. Outline held on the move. 2 Boyce's Tysar Moon River at Hollygar. Good overall shape with enthusiastic movement spoiled by short upper arm giving a choppy front movement. LB (12)Class of very different types, some over long and others short and lacking in ribbing. 1 Callow's Garthorne Little Eva. Well balanced bitch, with pleasing outline held at all times. Good head and expression. 2 Mitchell's Bronia Fabrizia. Another balanced bitch with good outline held on the move, not as good in forehand as first. OB(7,2)1 Ergis's Ch Siouxline Aurora. Elegant red who flowed round the ring. Well placed shoulders leading to prominent oval forechest. Correct outline with good length of ribbing and strong hindquarters. CC & BoB 2 Hunt's Carpaccio Crimson Ribbon. Quality compact bitch, with good head and expression. Just a little hesitant on the move today.
