Best in Show.
Lewis’s – Trixhund Euphoria. Jw Shcm. (Dachs. Std L/h)
My first impression was how this boy took off around the large main ring with the most magnificent movement that left the others behind, superbly balanced & a powerful driving action keeping a topline that was strong & very breed typical, presentation & handling of the highest quality with attention paid to the finest detail, this is a dachshund of rare & outstanding qualities that is a real show stopper.

Stephens – Brightmeadow Strand of Gold. (G.S.D)
Very close to winning B.i.S, the outstanding natural movement & unaided stance this superb two year old male example of the breed showed today was the last thing I expected to see, presented a perfect outline, nothing extreme or out of order but an honest natural fit healthy specimen of the breed who was shown to perfection.

Son of the B.i.S winner & no mistaking ‘ a chip of the old block’, all the star qualities of his father & the movement to match for one so young, this kennel certainly produces the goods & knows how to present them, this young lad should have a good future show career.

In this very close class this boy had the edge today when I thought my 2nd placing couldn’t get any better, it just did, masculine all round with head & body so well constructed & perfectly conforming to the male breed standard, so well turned out & presented in fully furnished immaculate coat which flowed when moving with his absolute soundness & balanced action which proved to be outstanding in the group, when deciding best in show he was one of the top three for consideration, I believe this one is a serious future contender in the breed. Best avnsc.

This outstanding male I gave best puppy in show to three years previously & now matured into a true champion has proved my faith in him, still has that superb ring presence & head & body that befits the standard so well & movement so impeccable but for a breeder to repeat a mating & produce a younger version that can supercede this one is a gamble that has paid off & proof of a top quality kennel.
