Jack was up early to travel up into Scotland to Billy Steel's FTCH Copperbirch Paddy of Leadburn to line Cuckavalda Jilly June. Paddy has just qualified for the second year running in the IGLs which this year are held high up in Scotland. The IGLs is a competition which involved the top 50 retrievers. Rollo is Jill's father . His dam is FTCH Ernvale Maud of Tudorcourt -top Retriever in Ireland in 2008 and his sire a FTCH. Paddy's mother is also FTCH Ernvale Maud but lined with a different sire a FTW. We have been told that this mating on paper is very good so fingers crossed we will have some first class pups. As far as we know this is the first time that FTCH Maud will appear in both sides of the pedigree .
