Lancashire & Cheshire Dachshund Association

Breed: Dachshund (Miniature Smooth Haired)

Many thanks for my lovely entry. I haven’t judged this variety for a while so it was great to have so many lovely dogs to go over. There were some tough decisions and it was down to minute details in some classes and especially awarding top honours.

Minor Puppy Dog (6 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: BELL Tolberg Liquorice Torpedo Black and tan super baby, lovely head and expression. Nice arched neck leading to correct placed shoulders. Good length of ribbing and moved positively coming and going DCC. He just lost to his sister for BOB at the end of a long day.

2nd: MILLS-JONES Carlita Made in Wales, Shaded red youngster. These will surely change places many times . Another super mover, moving with drive and keeping his topline. Cracking head and expression and good length of rib. Close decision.

3rd: CONNOLLY & DONNELLY Rosilath Emmet

Puppy Dog (3 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: CONNOLLY & DONNELLY Rosilath Emmet Nice little red dog, best mover in this class. Correct head and eye and good ribbing. Had the best feet of the day but didn’t go so well in the challenge.

2nd: DUNHILL Gellijams Russian Sun Quite a nice shape but carrying a little to much weight and on the move was a little loose behind.

3rd: JENNINGS Jenivon Mr Mischief

Junior Dog (4 Entries) Abs: 2

1st: HUNT Wolferlow George Brown at Carpaccio, Petite Chocolate dog well put together and moved really well . Prominent forechest and excellent ribbing a little to round in eye for me.

2nd:MASON Teckletown Something Magic Black and tan, would prefer a more masculine head and although he moved really well he was reluctant to show himself to advantage while on the table.. Higher on the leg than the winner.

Novice Dog (1 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: BELL Tolberg Liquorice Torpedo

Post Graduate Dog (2 Entries) Abs: 0

1st: STARKEY Carpaccio Black Obsidian For Hamoura b/t with a dfair masculine head, fair ribbing and keel and reasonable width in front. .Moved out holding his top line.

2nd: ANDISON & PEEL Clentry Hear Me Roar Red Dog a bit rangier than the winner and slightly loose behind but generally well constructed. Could do with a little more forechest. A very happy soul

3rd: RUDKIN Siouxline Ross For Dynastydax JW

Limit Dog (7 Entries) Abs: 1

1st: ROBERTS Wingcrest Supersonic to Denver Black and tan dog, well balanced with correctproportions. Handsome head, good neck, would have liked a little more forechest. Long deep ribbing, correct length of loin, moved well..

2nd: ANDISON & PEEL Clentry Knock Em Dead Norman Good dark eye and expression and a stronger head than the winnerhowever although he had a better forechest than one he moved loose behind which lost him his first place.

3rd: BEACH Izia Klara Difino (Imp SVN)

Open Dog (7 Entries) Abs: 2

1st: MITCHELL Ch Bronia Biaggio Black and tan Close decision between the first two in this class. Both top quality dogs in tiptop condition. This dog is well constructed throughout with good angulation making him the best mover of the class. Nice head and expression with correct front assembly. RCC

2nd: BLACKBURN BENNETT Stargang Barracuda. When I went over this dog I thought he was my winner. He is a lovely shape throughout and preferred his head to the winners. Great forechest and ribbing and lovely angulation front and rear. However today he moved a bit close behind. I’m sure he’ll soon get made up.

3rd: ROBERTS Denver Darling Doctor Who
