1987

A very quiet year on the show scene, but we did have a wonderful 4 weeks in Australia and New Zealand.
Barbara had been invited to judge in Newcastle and Perth in Australia,
and in Wellington in New Zealand, while I had been invited to judge in
Christchurch, New Zealand.
We were able to see our family members who had emigrated to
Australia and also to see our many friends in both of these countries.
We were reunited with some of the Collies that we had sent down
under. Notably NZ CH CORYDON HOTROD and CORYDON
HELLRAISER
in New Zealand.
We did not go to quite as many shows this year because of the
overseas trip, but we did show Ch. CORYDON TUCK’S TIGER a few
times. He won the CC and Best in Show at the Lancs and Cheshire
Collie Club Championship Show under Phil Rodford. He also won 5 Res
CCs during the year.
The year was also quite important because we started to show
LOWERPARK MOONLIGHTER AT CORYDON. He won Best puppy in
the breed at Windsor Ch. Show and at Welsh Kennel Club Ch. Show.
Two bitches that we showed with a little success were CORYDON
TUCK’S WHISPER and CORYDON MEG MERRILLY.
Meg won herself
into the Kennel Club Stud Book by winning 3rd Prize in Open Bitch at
Midland Counties. Unfortunately she was not quite good enough to
show, so we gave her away to a very good local home. She did give us
the CC Winner Corydon a Merry Twinkle
Whisper won a Best of Breed at Retford Open Show, but she was
really too small to win at the Championship Shows. But she did give us Corydon Whisper Willow.
