Naughty But Nice
interesting entry for my twelfth
time giving CCs. in Wires (since
1976) and the first time I have
ended-up with the male as Best of
Breed! In fact the interest and
competition appeared mainly to be in
the males. The last appointment was
at Southern Counties in 2011, so
only a couple had been under me
before and with differing fortunes,
but you can only place them as you
see the "on the day". It was nice to
have so few absentees. As usual I
tried to go for breed type,
structure, coat, balance topped with
a bit of character while avoiding
the stodgier ones and making most of
the decisions on the move. As for
temperament, they were their usual
delightful selves except the one
that growled on the table) and this
always makes Wires the most
entertaining and enjoyable variety
to judge and I'd rather they played
around a bit than be drilled into
standing like statues! Mouths were
better that I expected with just a
few rather tight bites - but still
serviceable. Feet, however, were
mainly as thin and flat as ever but
there were not so many short keels.
Some underlines could have been
better shaped and length of ribbing
appeared to be better in the bitches
than the dogs. Angulation has
improved over the years and not so
many flatten in front on the move,
but shoulder layback on some could
be better. Most had hammy rears on
the table but "bums" were often lost
on the move with toplines falling
away. Coats are more consistent
these days - and there were some
crackers - and these covering eager,
free-moving dogs that could free
stand when coming back to me made
such dogs stand out and fill the
eye. Reading the catalogue, as far
as breeding went it turned out to be
quite a Tendrow, Atahira, Cishelvine
day and to find that my Best of
Breed sired all four puppy class
winners was a bonus and to watch
that gorgeous puppy go Best Puppy in
Show was the icing on the cake. MPD.
(2,1) 1 Sorensen's Tendrow Time
After Time. Nearly 7 months and what
a start to my day! This red/brindle
baby certainly made his mark in the
ring, several times! A delightful
character who holds so much promise.
Good head and mouth, well-boned and
oval-bodied with good head, neck and
shoulders and a well angulated rear
allowing him to be a free and easy
mover when he got the hang of it. A
real jelly baby of a pup and when he
dries-up I'm sure the wins won't!
Just loved him, Best Puppy and Best
Puppy in Show. PD. (3,1) 1 Bellamys'
Veneen Onyx Resetin Gold at Garjay.
10 months brindle by the BOB.
Hard-coated with a topline to match,
gentle underline, good forechest and
well let-down rear of good width.
Pleasing for head, neck, bone and
feet. Could be a bit more positive
in front but scored on his greater
freedom of movement. 2 Herrods'
Kindeace Wish You Were Here. Brindle
the same age but far less ready at
this stage. Good head, neck, topline
and overall type covered by a
cracking coat but outmoved by
winner. JD. (2) Two litter brothers
by Zucchini out of the lovely Black
Orchid. 1 Vine's Derochaise
Justified for Cishelvine. Lovely
character with the harder coat and
kept his outline better on the move;
a bit low in front but moved freely.
I preferred his length to height
proportion. 2 Wharton and Pughe's
Derochaise Black Tarquin. Handsome
brindle, lighter colour than his
brother and with a pleasing head and
neck. Very stylish but a bit flat on
top and longer. It will be
interesting to see how they end-up.
Tendrow Elberta. Neat sized 21 month
brindle who won this class with
something in hand. Best length of
rib so far and a lovely type,
temperament and coat. Good head,
neck, bone, oval through front, hard
topline, well let-down rear. Moved
well both ways and kept his outline
going around. Nothing overdone and
all in proportion. 2 Smiths' Jethard
Two To Tango at Salixian. Smaller
red a couple of months older. Good
head, expression, coat, overall
balance. Not the scope or freedom of
movement of the winner but kept his
shape better than the next two. 3
Clares' Bellavin's Illustrious. LD.
(8) A good class that was very
competitive and quite a headache to
sort out with some I've admired in
the past ending-up down the line. 1
Vine and Baxter's Cishelvine Red
Admiral. A most impressive 3 year
old red I can't remember seeing
before and I was dying to find out
who he was! Built like a good Smooth
with all flowing lines and no sharp
corners. Good head and a lovely line
down his neck over his shoulders and
along his topline and all kept on
the move. Well angulated both ends
and a free mover who was just a
little untidy coming at me which is
where the ultimate winner scored
over him. Reserve CC. 2 Phillips'
Wiretap Here I Am. 20 months red
Canadian import who is so stylish
with great presence and quality.
Handsome head, hard topline and
gentle underline. I thought at first
he would be my winner, but he is
still at the coltish stage and needs
to drop and settle his angulation in
front, lovely boy. 3 Paskins'
Tendrow Replays The Red Guy at
Kindeace. OD. (6) Another good
class! 1 Phillips' Ch. Tendrow
Replayed In Blue. The whole package.
This handsome brindle is still only
21 months and out of the little red
bitch who was my
BOB. last time.
Everything I would want in a Wire
and everything in balance both
standing and on the move which he
does with enthusiasm. Super type,
handsome head, well-boned with good
feet, complementary angulation and a
fit, hard body covered with a super
coat. Never left the issue in any
doubt putting on a great
performance. If he can continue to
sire puppies like his first clutch,
should be a great asset to the
variety. CC and BOB. 2. Davies'Ch.
Atahira Joie De Blue. Another lovely
male. This 3 and a half year old
brindle is another hard-coated,
hard-bodied dog of unexaggerated
type that I appreciated for his
qualities. The sire of the winner
and the greatest complement any stud
dog can have is to stand second to
his own son! 3. Warren's Wagsford
Lincoln. MPB. (2) Phillips' Tendrow
A Page In Time. Red brindle sister
to the BP. Lovely baby, all over the
place but sound both ways and free
on the move. Oval through the front
with good shoulders and body
properties and well-made all round
with nothing to change at this age.
2 Maxwells' Bardrestan Queen Of The
South. Another lovely puppy of 7
months and a difficult choice
between the two. Beautiful head,
neck and outline and lovely length
of ribbing. This is obviously a
vintage year for pups if this entry
is anything to go by. PB. (4)
Tendrow Time'N Time Again. The third
one from this lovely litter. Dark
brindle of a neat size and
well-balanced with nothing overdone.
Agai oval-bodied with good head and
eye, nicely angulated and good top
and underlines. A difficult choice
over her sister for Best Bitch
Puppy. 2 Vine's Cishelvine Careless
Wispa. A lengthier lighter brindle
by the Res. C.C. winner and another
lovely puppy nearly a year old.
Another with a lovely outline but
not quite the shoulder placement of
the winner. 3 Rowes' Boloria's Tiger
Lily. JB. (6) 1 Hastings' Lesandnic
Sleepytime. Nearly 15 months lighter
brindle and I see she is by a
Norwegian dog from a kennel I've
admired and out of my Junior winner
from last time. Quite a big girl but
in no way lacking in quality or
femininity with good forechest,
shoulders, head, neck and a well
let-down rear and resulting in
movement that was very positive. 2
Wharton's Greyhayne Lotty Merry. A
good all-rounder who moved well
keeping her shape, good shoulder
placement and a better underline
than the winner but not as good in
coat qualities. Preferred her
hindquarters to the third. 3 Pughe
and Fraser's Bystock Extra Virgin.
PGB. (4) 1 Vine's Gravetye Kiss Me
Kate Cishelvine. Very nicely
balanced 2 year old red with
everything in proportion and
well-angulated both ends. Nice
balance of bone to size, a smooth
neck into shoulderline, good top and
underlines and a very free mover who
went well both ways. 2
Clayton-Smith's Boloria's April
Fool. I didn't really consider this
little bitch to start with but once
you get into her and look past the
plain head and unattractive colour
there's a lot to like about her and
she grew on me as we went along.
Very free-moving and sound with good
length and outline, a very good
underline and well let-down behind.
Not one of the glamour girls but has
so much to offer. 3 Kent's Liebling
Blarney Stone. LB. (9) Biggest class
and all present. 1 Warren's Wagsford
Lydia. 2 year old dark brindle by
Zucchini out of an Atahira bitch.
Lovely type, big bodied and lovely
all round with well-carried neck and
good length of ribbing. Moved very
well and positively both ways and
covered the ground from the side
with just a slight flattening over
the croup. Very nicely coated and
the one that added-up best overall
among an entry of pleasing girls,
earning her the CC. 2 Phillips'
Hototo Swellegant Gal at Tendrow.
Very nice type and coat, well
constructed and well-bodied and
moved well both ways but I'd like a
bit more freedom in her front action
to be really critical. 3 Davies'
Tendrow Joie De Vivre by Atahira.
OB. (6,2) This class was a real
poser with a great battle between
two lovely and mature bitches. 1
Phillips' Ch. Tendrow Peaches. 4 and
a half year old red who had to
really pull out all the stops and
work on me as she came into the ring
looking rather "mumsy" after
maternal duties and not tightened-up
in underline. Such a well-made
little bitch who can't stand or move
wrongly with her shoulder placement
and rear angulation. Stood second up
to the last time I moved them around
the ring when she just got better
and better. Very interested to see
that she is the dam of the puppies
and of the Post-Grad. D. Reserve CC.
2 Pughe and Fraser's Ch. Bystock
Pussy Galore. 4 and a half year old
brindle of lovely size and type.
Came under me last time and I wasn't
that impressed at that stage but she
has certainly come on a bundle as
the finished article. Again good
shoulder placement and rear
angulation and all parts fit and
flow. Very well-bodied but just a
shade overdeep in the chest. Put up
a great fight and was in lovely hard
nick. Moved truly both ways, but not
the great freedom of the winner. 3
Patersons' Ambiesque Allure.
I WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE MIDLAND
DACHSHUND CLUB FOR INVITING ME TO JUDGE THEIR
CHAMPIONSHIP SHOW,THE WORK THAT DANIEL AND HIS TEAM
PUT INTO THE SMOOTH RUNNING
OF THE SHOW IS OBVIOUS TO SEE.
THANKYOU TO THE EXIBITORS FOR THE LOVELY ENTRY YOU
I HAVE TO SAY IN GENERAL I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH
THE QUALITY OF SOME OF THE
EXIBITS TODAY,MY MAIN WINNERS PLEASED ME IMMENSLY.BUT
SADLY THE NORM NOW SEEMS
TO BE SHORT NON EXISTANT NECKS,BAD SHOULDERS WITH
VIRTUALLY NO ANGULATION AND
SHORT RIBBING,DACHSHUNDS ARE HOUNDS AND SHOULD MOVE AS
SUCH NOT LIKE TOYS
TUMMY TAPPING WITH SHORT LITTLE STEPS IS NOT
ACCEPTABLE TO ME BUT SEEMS TO BE
THE FASHION AT THE MOMENT, PRESENTATION IN A LOT OF
CASES LEFT A LOT TO BE
DESIRED A QUICK SPRAY WITH GROOMING SPRAY BEFORE GOING
IN THE RING IS NOT
ENOUGH AND THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR DIRTY TEETH.
TEMPERAMENT IS MUCH IMPROVED.
I WOULD ALSO SAY THAT IF YOU ARE GOING TO SIT AT THE
SIDE OF THE RING AND BE CRITICAL
TO OTHER EXIBITS THEN MAKE SURE YOUR OWN HOUSE IS IN
ORDER FIRST AND YOU ARE NOT
SEING YOUR OWN STOCK THROUGH ROSE TINTED SPECTACLES,
THERE SEEMS TO BE AN AWFUL
LOT OF BAD SPORTSMANSHIP WITHIN THE BREED , HEALTHY
COMPETITION IS GOOD BUT
BE PLEASED FOR OTHERS AS WELL AS YOURSELFS,WE ALL TAKE
THE BEST DOG HOME BUT AS
FAR AS THE BREED STANDARD GOES THERE IS QUITE A LONG
WAY TO GO IN MANY CASES.

It is some ten years since I judged the
breed last and during that time the breed has changed if
todays entry is representative. Generally heads are much
improved, with fewer round eyes and associated over defined
stops and weak muzzles. Coats on the whole were excellent, a
few needed attention and some had been trimmed into shape to
accentuate fronts or depth of brisket, pity. Movement was
generally very good, though many exhibits clearly did not
like the stripes on the floor. On the down side front
assemblies still leave much to be desired with very short
upper arms being common. There were many with flat, splayed,
turned out feet. This is a working breed, a Dachshund with
flat feet would not be able to do their job. These are all
construction problems, but I was most concerned by the
significant number of very nervous exhibits. This really
needs addressing as soon as possible. MPD (2) 1 Presenails
Taree Useless Loop. Dark brindle with pleasing head and dark
eye. Well constructed with fabulous front. Correct jacket.
Well angulated hind end. Movement OK Best Dog Puppy. 2
Hayward and Howells Fallowmill Cambera. Very attractive
head, but not the front construction of 1. Very good hind
movement. Crisp jacket, and a lovely temperament. PD (2,1) 1
Kugow and Holt's Waldermeister Darby. Dark brindle with
super jacket. Rather short in upper arm, but has good hind
angulation. Keeps top-line on the move, but lost out for
Best Dog puppy on hind movement. JD (3,2) 1 Jones Bimini
Starstruck. Super little chap with lovely head and eye.
Correct front assembly, with ribs carried well back.
Excellent hind angulation, with correct movement fore and
aft. Super jacket. Excellent top-line at all times. Res.
C.C. PGD (2) 1 Flower and Soderberg Baltiskiy Talisman
Indiana Jones (Imp Rus) Amazing colour! Aristocratic head.
Super hard coat, Very well boned. Reasonable feet. Very good
hind angulation, and super top-line. 2 Hunts Earthsea's
Billy The Kid. Pleasing head, and good coat. Needs to mature
in all respects. LD (1) 1 Shone's Strax Gogol. Only 16
months. Very dark brindle with lovely head and eye.
Excellent front assembly with tight thickly padded feet.
Excellent jacket, though a little untidy in places. Hind
quarters not as good as the front, and moves rather wide
behind. Keeps top-line at all times. OD (6) Huge variation
in type in this class. I particularly liked the exhibit
placed third, but he just would not cooperate with his
handler on the move. 1 Rose's Ch. Ridanflight Ricardo. Super
well balanced dog with good brindle coat. Pleasing head.
Excellent front construction, with ribs carried well back.
Correct movement in all respects. CC, BOB and res BIS. 2
Barney's Verrami En Trac Didn't grab me at all until I went
over him. Good tight feet and hard coat. Well balanced. Good
top-line and moved well. 3 Thorn-Andrews Drakesleat Hostile
Takeova. Beautifully constructed well balanced dog who would
not cooperate with his handler on the move. Such a pity. MPB
(10,3) 1 Shone's Phantasia Lady. Super brindle with
excellent coat. Good front construction. Pretty head. Moved
very well with correct hind angulation. Fabulous
temperament 2 Billinghurst Drakesleat Mrs Shilling For
Jiljac. Beautifully constructed with super coat. only 6
months and rather overwhelmed by the occasion. Super front
and feet. Lovely dark eye. Very promising puppy. 3 Selley
Ubu Frida Kahlo To Heleanne. PB (7,1) 1 Flowers and Smith
Bingobongo's Short And Sweet. Super well balanced bitch with
an excellent front and good reach of neck. Well angulated
hind end. Correct movement fore and aft. Lovely dark eye. 2
Morris Pennywave Uptown Girl. Very compact with lovely front
construction. Not quite the flowing lines of 1 Super tight
feet. Well angulated behind. Good depth all through. 3
Billinghurst Drakesleat Mrs Shilling For Jiljac. JB (9,1) 1
Russell's Russteck Sofair A Dream. And what a dream! Super
dark brindle with an excellent front. Long reach of neck,
giving lovely flowing lines. Very good tight thickly padded
feet. Fabulous outline stood and on the move. Correctly
angulated hind end. Harsh jacket. Beautifully presented. CC.
2 Fulton's Bothlyn Dancing Queen. Unusual Chocolate and
tan. The same comments apply as for the class winner, but
not as confident as 1 and this reflected in her movement. 3
Blackburns Stargang Liberty Belle. PGB (9,4) 1 Kirkwood
Helydon Fabulous Freya. Very little to choose between these
two bitches. Both have good fronts and excellent coats.
Pleasing heads. Both moved well. Preferred the better ground
clearance of 1. 2 Morris Pennywave Top Totti. 3 Walkers
Oselle Irenee. LB (10,2) 1 Haywards Foxearth Fatma Salkan. A
true Dachshund in Miniature. Wonderful red, hard coat.
Excellent front. Beautiful outline. Correctly angulated hind
end. Very happy person. Res C.C. 2 Blackburns Stargang
Compania Faerge. Pushed so hard. Lovely compact type.
Fabulous when stood, but not very keen on the floor and this
