LANCASHIRE & CHESHIRE DACHSHUND ASSOCIATION 20TH OCTOBER 2018 JUDGE VIVIEN PHILLIPS

MINIATURE SMOOTH DACHSHUNDS.

THANK YOU TO THE COMMITTEE, WHILST NUMERICALLY VERY SMALL ON THE DAY, WORKED SO HARD TO MAKE THIS A VERY PLEASANT AND ORGANISED SHOW. I ENJOYED THE JUDGING AND WAS PARTICULARLY PLEASED WITH MY MAIN WINNERS. I WAS SURPRISED AT HOW MANY EXHIBITS ACTUALLY EXCEEDED THE 5KGS WEIGHT LIMIT. THERE IS STILL A PROBLEM WITH OVER LONG BACKS AND SHORT RIBCAGES. EXCESSIVE WRINKLE ON LEGS NEEDS TO BE WATCHED ALSO.

MINOR PUPPY DOG NO ENTRIES

PUPPY DOG (2) 1 BARRETT’S AYSEEBEE TWINKLING STAR. LIKED THE OVERALL SHAPE OF THIS 9 MONTH OLD BLACK AND TAN YOUNGSTER, I WOULD NOT WANT HIM LONGER IN BACK. GOOD HEAD AND EYE. CORRECT NECK AND SHOULDERS, WELL DEVELOPED KEEL AND RIBS GO WELL BACK. STRONG IN TOPLINE AND HINDQUARTERS. MOVED WELL FOR A BABY. 2. STARKEY’S CARPACCIO BLACK OBSIDIAN AT HAMOURA. ANOTHER NICE BLACK AND TAN YOUNGSTER, SHORTER IN BACK, AND HE ALSO HAS A NICE HEAD AND FRONT, BOTH HAD TIGHT FEET AND THIS BOY ALSO HAD RIBBING GOING WELL BACK. IT WAS A CLOSE DECISION, BUT HE NEEDS TO TIGHTEN UP SIGNIFICANTLY IN HOCK, HIS HIND MOVEMENT WAS A BIT ERRATIC.

JUNIOR DOG.(4) 1 MITCHELL’S BRONIA BAGGIO. LOVELY HEAD AND EYE ON THIS DOG. SUPER FRONT AND FEET. BLACK AND TAN WITH ELEGANCE .WOULD NOT WANT HIM LONGER. BUT HE HAS STRONG HINDQUARTERS WHICH HE USED WELL ON THE MOVE. 2.BURKE & MANSTON’S BONAVOIR BLACK JACK. ANOTHER BLACK AND TAN OF NICE TYPE. SHORTER IN BODY. GOOD SHOULDERS. FEET COULD BE A LITTLE TIGHTER. WELL RIBBED. WOULD PREFER STRONGER HINDQUARTERS ON THE MOVE. 3. PROTHEROE’S ROYALMAPLE FIDDLESTICKS

NOVICE DOGS NO ENTRIES

POST GRADUATE DOG. (3) THREE DIFFERENT TYPES HERE. 1 SHUTT’S MELRIDING CAPTAIN HOOK OF DONNADOON. I LIKED THE SHAPE OF THIS BRINDLE 17 MONTH DOG AS HE CAME INTO THE RING. LOVELY SIZE. GOOD HEAD AND EYE. CORRECT SHOULDERS AND KEEL. GOOD TIGHT FEET. CORRECTLY RIBBED.. STRONG HINDQUARTERS MOVED EXTREMELY WELL. RES CC. MUST HAVE A BRIGHT FUTURE.. 2. BLACKBURN’S STARGANG SEA BIRD. .ANOTHER DOG OF DIFFERENT TYPE WITH A GOOD HEAD AND EYE. SHADED RED WITH CORRECT FRONT AND FEET. HE IS WELL RIBBED, BUT WAS OVERSTRETCHING ON THE STACK WHICH SPOILT HIS OUTLINE. NOT THE STRENGTH IN HINDQUARTERS OF MY WINNER.

 3 JENNINGS’ DUDDONDAXS JUDGE JUDE.
