4th August Paignton

Paignton was a brilliant day for Potterdale! We won both CCs under judge Ann Andrews. 'Russel' Potterdale Platinum Plus won the DCC and Maureen Sale won the BCC with the beautiful 'Roxy' CH Potterdale Star Potential. Ann gave BOB to Russell who went on to win Group-2.

Critique: What a stunner this young dog is. Caught my eye as soon as he entered the ring and didn’t disappoint on going over him. Handsome dark slate with a beautiful expression, good masculine head, excellent pigment and nicely arched neck leading into well angulated shoulders. Great length and depth of rib and correct rear angulation. Moved effortlessly round the ring with reach and drive. His second CC today and I’m sure it won’t be long before he gets his crown. Delighted to see him perform perfectly in the group and be awarded Group 2. A lovely dog who should have an exciting future.

 
 

12th July National Working & Pastoral Breeds

We had a fantatic day under breed judge Don Moir awarded 'Russel' Potterdale Platinum Plus his first CC. We followed this by winning the RBCC with our lovely 'Eden' Potterdale Seagulls Ringside Rumour at her first show after her litter four months ago. 'Alfie' Potterdale Paladium JW won Limit dog and looked gorgeous! Just unlucky to be beaten by his younger half brother.

 
Beautiful dark slate with lazy action movement which in actual fact means he is covering the ground at high speed without any effort. Excellent strong head and pigment, eyes to match. Super neck flowing into such well set shoulders which are complemented by a back end which gives plenty drive. Excellent coat without being overdone. Such a calm boy with wonderful temperament. In the challenge, he just kept moving without distraction or concern for anything so I surprised myself by awarding him his first CC at only 19 months old. Will go all the way, and soon. On being told that I had awarded his mother and grand mother the CC previously, it all made sense.
