CORYDON COLLIES

  What a year. We ended up with 10 Challenge Certificates, 3 Reserve   Challenge Certificates. TOP Kennel and TOP Dog. And 3 New Champions.

We started off well by winning 4 First Prizes at London Collie Club Open Show under Mr S Hall. Then CORYDON LA STUPENDA won the Res CC at The Midland Collie Club under Mrs V Geddes. CORYDON BLACKCAT won the Open Dog Class at The British Collie Club and the Limit Dog Class at Crufts. This was quickly followed by W.E.L.K.S Championship Show where CORYDON LA STUPENDA won the Bitch CC and Best of Breed under Mrs I Moores. So becoming CH CORYDON LA STUPENDA. Then within 2 weeks CORYDON BLACKCAT won the Res CC under Brian Hawkins at the National Show and he then awarded his daughter CORYDON KITTYCAT the CC and Best of Breed.

Then to Bath Championship Show where Harry Jordan awarded ALSSALA CANNY BAIRN AT CORYDON the CC, so he became CH ALSSALA CANNY BAIRN AT CORYDON.

Next to Paignton Championship Show with Hazel Hunt judging. CORYDON KITTYCAT won the CC and Best of Breed.

Then to Windsor Championship Show with Mrs M Spavin judging the breed. It started with CORYDON WILL SCARLET winning the Puppy Dog Class. CORYDON SUDDEN IMPACT won the Open Dog Class and was awarded the Dog CC and Best of Breed. CORYDON KITTYCAT won the Limit Bitch Class and was awarded the Res CC. CORYDON GOLD DEMELZA won the Open Bitch Class and was awarded the Bitch CC. So we ended the day with Dog CC and Best of Breed, The Bitch CC, Res Bitch CC and Best Puppy Dog. A wonderful day.

CORYDON KITTYCAT went on to win her classes at South Wales, National Working and Pastoral Breeds and Leeds Ch Show.

Bournemouth Ch Show had Stella Clark judging and she awarded the Bitch CC to CORYDON KITTYCAT. So she then became CH CORYDON KITTYCAT. At the same show CORYDON BLACKCAT won the Reserve Dog CC.

Next stop was the Welsh Kennel Club Show under Lisa Burtenshaw. Here CORYDON BLACKCAT again won the Reserve Dog CC, but CH CORYDON KITTYCAT won the Bitch CC and Best of Breed. So making her the Top Winning Rough Collie for 1996.

And still we had not finished winning this year, because we had Mrs Z Thorn Andrews judging the breed at Midland Counties where she awarded the Dog CC  and Best of Breed to CORYDON CAYOSS now owned by the Misses Flint, and the Bitch CC to CORYDON GOLD DEMELZA. Giving us the double again. Twice in one year is greedy!!!!!!!
