The History of CORYDON

CORYDON COLLIES

2010


  This was a dreadful year, as Barbara was seriously ill until her death in September. It is going to be difficult to carry on without her, although Miranda is now very keen on showing and continuing the Corydon line. She is also now the secretary of East Anglian Collie Association.

  We asked for donations to Collie Rescue instead of flowers for her funeral and this raised the wonderful total of more than £900 in her memory. I would like to thank everyone who donated so generously to this Charity who do so much for the unfortunate Collies who have been abandoned or neglected.

  We also found out who our true friends are, as they helped so much during these difficult times.

  And then we found out who were the fair weather friends. We would like to ignore them and forget them. This included the OUR DOGS magazine for which Barbara was the Rough Collie Breed Notes Writer for more than 37 years. It seems such a pity that they could not even send a condolence card, let alone send a representative to the funeral. We do not subscribe to this magazine any more and I would suggest that readers of this column who do take it, have second thoughts.

  Obviously the show scene was not as we would normally have liked. But we did have 2 Best in Show wins with CORYDON ONCE IN A BLUE MOON and his daughter MEJOLA MY BLUE HEAVEN FOR CORYDON. Also the dogs won 2 Reserve CCs. These were DEMELEWIS DARK MOON DRIFTIN OVER CORYDON at Bournemouth and his nephew CORYDON ONCE IN A BLUE MOON at Three Counties.

 Largely due to Miranda’s efforts, the dogs won 36 first prizes during the year.
