Judge Alan Hood
 

A great day for Potterdale as 'Alice' Potterdale Birthday Star To Ragellie gained her third CC making her the 43rd Potterdale Champion in the UK. Well done to Pat Styles on doing so well with your lovely girl.

This 7 year old brown and white bitch is classically marked with full white collar and such a beautiful brown coat of the correct length and texture took my eye as soon as she entered the ring. She didn't put a foot wrong, her lovely head and gorgeous eye colour sets her face perfectly, lovely muzzle with big brown nose. Nice stop and good flat head leading to lovely proportioned neck, her lay of shoulder compliments her free and easy movement along with a great reach, front and back, without exaggeration. The more the class went on the better she got and was in such high-quality company. Would be proud to have owned or bred this bitch, I loved her, CC and her Title on the day subject to KC, it is clear to see why this kennel has made such a major impression in the breed quality, quality, quality.

Thanks Alan for this critique
