Judge Barrie Croft
 

We had no idea when we were competing in a very wet breed ring for Best of Breed that Russell CH Potterdale Platinum Plus would eventually be awarded absoloute Top Honours of Best in Show the following day.

This critique from Breed Judge Barrie Croft was amazing: "well what do you say about this super male? Fills the eye from nose to tail end, to top this quality entry today about says it all, I can give no bigger compliment than he is the best Bearded Collie I have ever judged anywhere & I gave it much thought before I made that statement! Loved him."

 

Thank You to Judges Derek Smith (Group 1) & Andrew Brace (BIS) for thinking so highly of our boy.

 
 
20th August 2016 Welsh Kennel Club
Judge Vic Salt
 
When we attended The WKC we never expected the last CC and BOB ever to be awarded by Vic Salt. He was his normal cheerful self and he was very complementary about Russell, CH Potterdale Platinum Plus and I'm sure he was very pleased to see him win Group 2 under judge Goran Bodegard. His critique: Pastoral group This group was dominated by the two top dogs the fabulous Australian Shepherd & equally star quality Bearded Collie which could & should be used as illustrations of breed type in all respect in education. Difficult to decide which of them should win.
 
 
 
Thrilled to hear that Russell's sister AM CH Potterdale Diamond Diva also in America completed her championship during one weekend. Congratulations to Christiana, Amy and Billy on Peekaboo's success.
