The Midland Dachshund Club Championship Show
Saturday 24th July 2018 held in conjunction with the Hound
Association at Stafford Agricultural Show ground
Thank you to all exhibitors and committee for a
lovely day. Being indoors had some draw backs and some positives with
the windows and doors open it generally had a through breeze that made
it more comfortable for the dogs and humans alike. To see the dogs free
stand is a pleasure and gives the natural stance and shape. I found some
dogs with misplaced teeth and heavily boned exhibits which made them
look cloddy. On the plus side most dogs were in well toned condition
with strong easily seen feet and short nails. I felt very spoilt for
1. McCalmont - Silvae Trader - Smart brindle young
man Lovely hound head with almond eyes well filled chest and good ground
clearance lovely length of neck well laid shoulders and good hind
angulation need a little more time to firm up
2. Maes-Jones Derochaise Manhatton B/T boy not the
same fill of chest. Nicely laid shoulders and well sprung ribs moved
3. Stockdale Derochaise Monterrey at Fenwires
1. Wharton Greyhayne Hooray Henry Breed type
head conical in shape giving almond shape dark eyes, clean
full front with close fitting elbows, good depth and length to ribbing,
firm in topline, enough bone and strong broad deep feet he moved out
soundly. Finished with a lovely harsh coat and well muscled condition.
2. Adams - Wyldetarn Shoot from the
Hip JW Pleasing forechest full and capacious nicely shaped eye long
muscular neck ample bone, firm topline at times carried his tail a
little high at times.
3. Fitches - Derochaise Master
Post Graduate Dog
1. Vig Q-rrens-Dax Enzo-Topazo
Brindle jacket pleasing hound head shoulder lay could be better well
2. Howe Kissdachs Bilbo at
Bramalodge Finding 2 shows in one day too much. Bright alert dark eyes
well furnished head, beard and eyebrows the better harsh jacket lovely
filled chest and keel a little difficult to assess on the move.
1. Moore Cloudside Picasso A big
lad, bags of bone and ample ground clearance. Plenty of furnishings and
full beard almond eye long strong neck into shoulder angles equally
matched by hind angulation he moved with purpose.
2. North-Row Tendrow One More Time
Barmaud - Lots to like about this red boy although he was carrying a
little extra today which gave him his place. Well groomed out with harsh
red jacket tight broad feet and well angled shoulders ample spring of
ribs and strong loin he moved with a free positive stride.
3. Gibson Allfreys London Look
1. Wharton & Pughe Ch Derochaise
Black Tarquin This young man is in his prime he was perfectly
presented with no fluffy bits to accentuate or hide anything. He took
everything in his stride. Lovely houndy head, dark almond shaped eye
giving the required intelligent, courageous look. Strong long neck into
well laid shoulders suitably sprung ribs extending correctly back
muscular loin and matching hind angles he stood on tight well knuckled
feet and demanded attention spirited and intelligent. On the move he was
free and powerful covering the ground with ease CC.
2. McCalmont Silvae Kinsman this
young man has time to mature both mentally and physically. Typical hound
head conical in shape enough stop, well furnished eyebrows and beard.
Prominent keel when not paying attention stood close infront. Well
muscled throughout. Excellent harsh jacket on the move he was powerful
and keen to get on.
3. Gibson Allfreys Heres Lookin
Ch Zlowfox Av Larhjelm at Sunsong (Imp Nor) A worthy champion that
was in for consideration. Reaching length of neck sound shoulders firm
topline shown in well toned condition with full round hind. He moved
with assured confidence.
1. Maes-Jones - Ch Derochaise Black Orchid One I
have admired from ring side before she belies her age. A gentle
intelligent eye that has seen everything enough furnishings full strong
scissor bite, oval chest in keeping with well sprung ribs strong loin
and round well muscled rump which she used on the move. She strode out
with a sound positive action and a credit to her family.
2. Coverley Ch/Ir Ch Aventine Shaken Not Stirred
Another lady Ive enjoyed watching. Strong,
prominent chest well sprung ribs, not as positive on the move as one
Minor Puppy Bitch
1. North Row & Martin Full
circle Barmaud Florence RAF Exciting young puppy lovely chest with
good forechest well laid shoulders and depth of chest ample ribbing
matching hind quarters still loose on the move but plenty of time.
1. McCalmont Silvae Trademark At the older end of
puppy and more mature although still needing time to finish filling out
for her age she is at a good stage of development. Lovely length of neck
firm topline well angulated hind quarters. Positive on the move finished
with an excellent harsh jacket. Puppies change places regularly, the
future is bright. BP
2. Seath Sunsong Keep a Promise At the younger
end of age range with lots of promise. Good almond shape eye dark in
colour well laid shoulders topline not quite as firm oodles to like
3. Court - Derochaise Mariposa.
