LEEDS CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW.. LONG HAIRED DACHSHUNDS. JUDGE VIVIEN PHILLIPS

THE GRASS WAS QUITE LONG IN MY RING AND SO IT WAS DIFFICULT TO ASSESS MOVEMENT. SOME EXHIBITS REALLY STRUGGLED AND LOOKED ALMOST UNSOUND. I MADE ALLOWANCES FOR THIS AND IN SOME CASES MOVED A DOG AGAIN… MY WINNERS WERE VERY WELL CONSTRUCTED WITH AN ELEGANCE IN HEAD AND WELL RIBBED WITH GOOD STRONG QUARTERS AND TIGHT FEET.. I DID , HOWEVER, FIND SOME SHORT RIBCAGES AND SOME FAIRLY FLAT FEET.
