CORYDON COLLIES

1958 Ch Inglebrooks Wen Jenny Complete Show Record for 1958

The CORYDON prefix was registered at The Kennel Club


I exhibited at my first ever show, CRUFTS !!!.


We did not have to qualify in those days. Crufts was held at Olympia in London.The judge this year was Mr Leo Wilson, an all-rounder with a world-wide reputation.


I showed LIGHT CAVALRY OF LADYPARK in the puppy dog class, but he was unplaced in a class of 28

Barbara showed BIRCHBOUGHS BARON in the Graduate Dog Class and he was placed VHC


This show was interesting because one dog, Commander of Crannyglen, won all the dog classes and was Best of Breed. He never became a Champion. He was by Lockson of Ladypark ex Gibson Girl. Owned by Mrs V Wheelan.

The bitch CC was won by Inglebrooks Wen Jenny owned by Mr Fendley (of Ralvera’s fame) and bred by Mr Rippon, she was by Ch Mywicks Model Examiner ex Brooklea Wendy.


It is also interesting to look at the entry in comparison to today’s shows. In 1958 - 127 Rough Collies were entered, but they made an entry of 302. In 2003 - 257 Rough Collies were entered, but the entry had dropped to 280. A sign of the times? Maybe because today’s exhibitors are not as keen as we were 45 years ago. I cannot think of any other reason, because a second entry for the same dog is free. Surely not everyone is expecting their dog to win its class and be in the challenge for the CC. I can remember going to some shows where we had entered a dog in several classes and started off by him not being placed, but in the last class he won a first prize. All good fun, so someone is missing out.
