SKC W/H Dachshunds 


1.Adams’Teckelgarth Gatling JW,well shaped with masculine head.Clean skull,strong jaw and lovely  expression.Well filled in thorax for a baby,well set shoulders with elbows well tucked in.Strong body of good length.Soundest mover.In the challenge I thought he looked the so well balanced and smart.CC & BOB. 

2.Binks’ Tannahill Oslo,typy head with good eyeshape.Good reach of neck,though he looked a little overdone in forechest but should settle down as he settles.Well bodied would like a shade less length of loin.Well boned and moved very soundly with good width all through. 

3.Christie’s Tanahill Bergen at Deccaleigh. 


1.McPherson & Paterson’s Brumberhill Mr.Wilks, Quality chap with lovely head type and expression.Very nicely shaped with a strong topline he kept on the move. Well balanced in both front and rear construction and moved with strength and width.Lovely crisp jacket. 

2.Tanahill Bergen at Deccaleigh,Not my type of head but overall a good shaped bady with plenty of forechest.Would like more substance to bone down to feet.Good topline with good width of loin,moved freely. 


1.Brumberhill Mr.Wilks. 


1.Gibson’s Allfreys London Look,for me the most typy in the class and won here on overall balance and soundness.He has a good body and kept his topline both standing and moving.Would like a harder jacket.Moved soundly. 

2.Vine’s Cishelvine Caught Out,lovely to go over on the table,has good jacket.Lacked strength to his topline and moved narrower than expected. 

3.Maes Jones & Bates Derochaise Manhatton. 


1.Gibson’s Allfreys Here’s Lookin At You,headed a lovely class of quite different types.This chap appealed in head type although I would like it a shade longer.His overall structure was very good with lovely body shape and strength topline. I though he was very workmanlike in his style and sound. 

2.Moore & Downes’ Megline Aramis,totally different in type.Not my type of head but again is masculine and workmanlike.Lovely overall balance and shape and has a great masculinity about him.Sound mover. 

3.Maes-Jones & Bates’ Derochaise Versace JW. 


1.Gibson’s Allfrey’s Matilda,what a pretty baby.Feminine,balanced head with lovely eyeshape.Combines strength and balance for such a youngster,moved well with good width and has an excellent jacket. 


1.What two lovely girls to head this class and see they are litter sisters.I’m sure they will change places many times as there is lots to like about both of them,spoilt for choice! It took me some time to decide on which to place 1st inCoverley’s  Aventine Amarela,she has a lovely reach of neck into her shoulder and she at present has settled into her upper arm but still needs to develop in thorax when viewed from the front.She is of a larger frame and will take more to mature,but looks impressive in profile. 

2.Coverley’s Aventine Dolcetto,again appealed very much in type.She is of more compact build and therefore more forward in body development.Well ribbed and I like her legs and feet quality.Moved with good width,just would have like a shade more length of upper arm. 

3.Vine’s Cishelvine Kiss Me Quick. 


1.Gibson’s Allfrey’s Helena,pushed hard by 2,loved her quality feminine head.Well balanced with substance,lovely legs and feet.Well filled in in thorax and carried back through ribbing.Moved soundly and kept her shape in profile.Res.CC. 

2.Carruthers’ Stanegate Catherine Wheel,very much on a par with 1st for quality.A little bit heavier in type but still feminine  and workmanlike.Her construction is excellent and it shows in her strength to her front,body and topline.She moved with good width and soundness. 

3.Vine’s Cishelvine Can’t Catch Me. 


1.Vine’s Cishelvine Just An Enigma.Typy,well balanced head and lovely overall body shape.Strong neck and front with well developed thorax.Mature body maybe could be a shade shorter to balance,moved soundly. 


1.Carruthers’Brumberhill Bellina, mature bitch of lovely type with good texture to jacket.I like this balance of strength without exaggeration.Another of workmanlike make up,balanced head with strong underjaw.Strong neck of correct length and well angulated front with plenty of fill in of thorax.Spot on in front,mature body,I really liked her shape over the hindquarters.Moved soundly and came to stand with a lovely outline.CC.
