East of England Championship Dog Show 2016
A satisfactory entry of 85 with a few absentees some of which I know the owners were at the Smooth-haired Dachshund Champ show which clashed with Hound day here. Such a shame that the KC cannot use computers to avoid these clashes that seem to happen so frequently. I enjoyed my day despite the torrential rain and the atrocious ground condition which really taxed some of the dogs. My top winners were superb and there were others that could easily have taken top honours. Thankyou for showing your lovely dachshunds under me.
MINOR PUPPY DOG. 3 1 abs. 1st Woodvine-Shone’s Ralines Elstar. Baby only 6 months 4 days. Pleased to find he is the son of my DCC winner. Lovely head and eye, pleasing construction with good angulation fore and aft. Coped well with the ground for one so young. Very promising. Best Puppy Dog. 2nd Bedford’s Dinkidudlor Webba Wundah. Another baby only days over 6 months. Shaded red, well off for bone. Couldn’t cope with the ground. Rising slightly at the rear on the move.
PUPPY DOG. 5 1 abs. 1st Broad’s Eldmour Sea Lord of Dinkidudlor NAF TAF. Most beautiful flat coat on this glamorous boy. Very nice head with dark eyes. Moved soundly in this class keeping a good out line. He had had enough by the time the challenge for Best Puppy Dog but one to watch. 2nd McCarthy’s Nagshall Port Au Prince. Couldn’t decide whether this boy was dark cream or pale red but whatever he was a lovely colour with very dark points, most attractive. He moved fairly well to take 2nd place. 3rd Bedford’s Eldmour Kango Kajali of Dinkidudlor.
JUNIOR DOG. 6 3 abs. 1st Norton’s Halunke Pure Magic. The first of this owner’s dogs which were all of similar type. Loved this clear red boy. Super head and eye, good length of neck, well constructed body. Moved soundly keeping a good topline. 2nd McCarthy’s Nagshall Justintime. Shaded Cream, well shaped head and eye with lovely dark points. Good forechest, a little too long in body for balance but held his topline well on the move. 3rd Pitfield’s Luna Capres D’oroed’argento of Follyfield [Imp Ita].
YEARLING DOG. 2. 1st Brooks’s Inkums Chilli Pepper at Lyndarlea. Loved the construction of this shaded red boy. Just a bit too much of him but couldn’t deny him 1st here. He moved so soundly coping with the ground really well. 2nd McCarthy’s Nagshall Digby Mac. Another of similar type to the others from this kennel. Cream with dark points. Couldn’t match the 1st on the move particularly in front action.

OPEN DOG 6. 1st . RCC Norton’s Halunke Going Dutch. Super rich red boy. Love the type this breeder is producing. Ideal length to height proportions enabling him to cope well with the uneven ground. Attractive in head and eye, good length of neck, ribs carried well back and correct angulation fore and aft. To be hyper-critical, and it is nit-picking, I would like a touch more forechest. 2nd Broad’s Neertanauf Sea Magic JW SHCM. Liked this boy a lot. Very well constructed. Lovely head and eye. Coat needs to grow in to finish the picture. 3rd Bedford’s Rossdach Cream Of The Crop.
VETERAN DOG 3 1st Woodage’s Totonian Toscannini. B/T brindle. Pleasing head and outline. Coat and topline better than 2nd . 2nd Pitfield’s Andynromadax Dave of Follyfield SHCM. Black & tan. Lovely to see the old dogs enjoying their day out. He has a good head and is sound. Carrying a bit too much weight for his size today.
