Thank you to the committee for the invitation and congratulations on a well run show. It was a shame that this Premier show clashed not only with Blackpool but also with the Southern Dachshund Assoc Open Breed Show which undoubtedly affected the entry today. My thanks to those that entered and although it was a small entry all the dogs were well presented and a joy to go over.

1st Clarkes Tekalhaus the Excelsior, Red male 2yrs old, pleasing head properties and correct dentition. Good reach of neck set into well laid shoulders, correct depth of keel giving adequate ground clearance. Body was well ribbed with a short strong loin. Strong hindquarters which he used well on the move, held his topline at all times. BOB

Adequate length of rib and short loin. Whilst he moved straight fore and aft he lacked drive. Kept his topline at all times BOB Dachshund (Min Smooth-haired)

1st Pipers Macushia Michael Mosley at Avvoltoio, Brindle male 5 yrs. Pleasing head properties and expression. A tad short in upper arm but with an adequate depth of chest and good length of rib. Whilst he was well angulated behind, he was rather loose in hind movement. Another with a good harsh jacket. RBOB

1st Altendorfs Westwill Figaro, Brindle bitch 2 yrs. What a charming mini wire with a sweet head and expression. Would prefer a harsher jacket. A different outline to 1 and of a stockier build. Moved ok.
