Critique for Dachshund (Miniature Smooth Haired)

Puppy (4):

1. Anderson and Watt’s Nisyros Luciana, feminine shaded red of 10 months, stood out for overall outline and construction, well made fore and aft, good ribbing, good topline held on the move, sound mover, if a little reluctant at times, RBB;

2. Kay’s Dachienne Charlie Brown at Lochlip, nearly 11 months dog, very nice overall and shown in super condition, not the front of 1;

3. Wilson’s Clentry Back In Black at Linburndax

Junior (5):

1. Anderson and Watt’s Nisyros Sergio, shaded red dog of 10 months, stood away here, had the best of outlines, is well angulated through forequarters, good topline and well ribbed, correct ground clearance, moved well out and back and carried himself so well in profile maintaining his static outline, should have a good future, BD, Best Junior, BPIB, then later BPIS4;

2. Wilson’s Linburndax Haggis Bon Babe, 17 months bitch who was free moving in profile and kept a decent outline, rather barrel hocked behind;

3. Wilson’s Shantallah Secret Shadow at Linburndax

Novice (2):

1. Kay’s Lochlip Quantum of Solace, nearly 2 years male, with pleasing head and level topline, scored in hind action but tail carriage could be better;

2. Bain’s Clentry Rewrite the Stars, bitch of nearly 2 years, pleasing overall and shown in super gleaming condition, rather barrel hocked;

Open Dog (3):

1. Cumberland’s Mumysami Clicalicious for Yorami, 6 years and shown in fit, well muscled condition, good in profile both standing and on the move, pleasing topline, could be a little more positive behind;

2. Whyte’s Chequevar Paddington Bear at Dachienne, 4.5 years and of pleasing type and overall shape, another in good condition, just not the topline of 1;

3. Burnett’s Zobears Watchman

Open Bitch (2):

1. Metcalfe’s Metadale Legacy Lives On, yearling shaded red of lovely type and outline, well made all through with correct head shape and eye, well-constructed through forequarters, well ribbed with correct topline and underline, well-made hindquarters, maintained her outline on the move in profile and was very sound out and back, has a look of quality and filled my eye, will follow her future, BB and BOB;

2. Cumberland’s Mumysami Clickety Clic for Yorami, 6 years of pleasing type overall, moved soundly;
