Owner : Kirkbridgend
Breed : Border Collie
Birthdate : 13th September 2009
Black and White Bitch standing at 461mm and now spayed. Poppy has spent some time in the breed show ring and qualified for and competed at Crufts 2012 and Crufts 2015. She was also introduced to sheep and did some sheepdog training. She mainly concentrates on agility but will be shown in some veteran classes while I show her grandkids and daughter. Poppy has achieved her KC Agility Warrant Silver (AW(S)) and her KC Gold Good Citizen award.
Poppy started UKA and Kennel Club agility Spring and Summer 2012. In the few times she has attended UKA shows she has progressed to the Senior Performance Programme and the Champ Steeplechase Programme already having won classes in each. At KC Agility she won out of G1 at a big champ show with a 3rd and 4th on the same day. She has had numerous top 10 placings in both agility and jumping classes and at her first day in G2 had a 3rd which also beat the winning G1 dog by a second and a 6th both in classes of over 100. She gained more than the points needed for her Agility Warrant Bronze in only 11 days competing at KC agility in 2015. Over the 2015/2016 winter she was the overall tournament winner (all grades, all heights) of the 5 part Kelluki Winter Agility Series with an amazing number of clears including many top 3 placings in her C1-3 classes. She was lightly competed again in 2016 due to her daughter having a litter in June and my back having a disk problem. She still managed to gain her Agility Warrant Silver with many top 3 placings including two jumping wins and an agility win which took her to G3. She has already had a 2nd in G3 jumping behind her daughter. I am very proud of her as she has been very lightly competed due to having a litter and spending a lot of time in the show ring, she also has to put up with me as her handler! Please see Poppy's page on our website for her full competition results.
At home Poppy lives in the house with us and is a much loved pet. She loves being a lap dog and cuddling up on the sofa and watching TV with us. We couldn't ask for a more cuddly and loving dog!
Poppy will not be having any more litters and has now been spayed.
Poppy's critique written by breed specialist judge Jo Ratcliffe for her Crufts 2015 qualification 2nd placing in Post Graduate bitch at BCC of Wales Champ show July 2014:
"2nd – Kirkwind Poppet at Kirkbridgend. Finer framed bitch who is adequately angled fore & aft, and this balance shows in her movement. Head is in proportion to the body, with an alert outlook. She gained her 2nd place on her side gait, which was excellent."
Poppy's critique written by breed specialist Sam Tyedeman for her 2nd place in Post Graduate bitch at Wessex BCC Open show May 2014:
"2. Bridge’s Kirkwind Poppet at Kirkbridgend. Prick eared 4 year old b/w bitch. Feminine head with correctly shaped, lighter shade of brown eyes. She has an athletic body and is slightly longer in the body than 1. Balanced angulations and neat hocks. She has good muscle tone and moved soundly with a level topline."
