1983

This was a good year for the Corydon Kennel. We made up 2 New
CHAMPIONS – CORYDON POLLY HERA and CORYDON GLORY
HALLELUJAH.

Hera won her third and qualifying CC at Birmingham City
Championship Show under Mrs C Sutton.
Glory won her 3 CCs in just 2 months. Her first was under Mrs P Walsh
at Lancashire & Cheshire Collie Club, her second under Mr J Broderick
at Collie Club of Wales, where she was also Best in Show, and her
third CC at LKA under Mr N Plimmer. She also won a Res CC under Mrs
A Bishop at Darlington.
This year we also introduced 2 dogs who were to have an influence
both here in the UK and down under. These were CORYDON HOT
ROD and CORYDON GOLD STAR.

Hotrod had a spectacular puppy career in the UK, winning 6 Best
Puppy in Show awards. Including Best Puppy in Show at the British
Collie Club Championship Show.
Denise Grace came to England, fell in love with him and took him back
to her home in New Zealand. He did even better there as he quickly
became a Champion. He won 22 CCs and sired at least 14 Champions.
He mated UK & AUS CHAMPION CORYDON GLORY HALLELUJAH,
a mating which produced 5 Champions. Before he left us he sired one
of the Corydon GREATS, this was CH & AUS CH CORYDON TUCK’S
TIGER

Goldstar became a UK Champion and was then sent to Mrs Blatchford
in Melbourne who had great fun with him as a stud dog. He again
produced quite a lot of Champions. Before he left us he sired CORYDON CARUSO and SW CHCORYDON GOLD LARIOT who won 7 C.A.C.I.B.s in Sweden.
During 1983 our dogs won a total of 56 first prizes.
