1991

This was a quiet year as we had a holiday and judging appointments
in Australia and New Zealand. We had, as usual, a wonderful time. If
you ever get the chance, go. The Blue Mountains are extraordinary.
And the scenery in New Zealand is just unbelievable.
Back to showing. This was the year of CORYDON MOON MIRACLE.
He won 2 Challenge Certificates and one Res CC. The first big win
came at Southern Counties under Mrs A C Hutchinson who awarded
him the CC and Best of Breed. This was followed at Three Counties
where Robin Searle awarded him the CC and Best of Breed. He was
short listed in the group that day. His Res CC came at Midland
Counties under Joe Kirk.
The year was also memorable in that we introduced 4 bitch puppies
from 3 litters that had been born within 2 weeks of each other. They
were all to have a big impact on the CORYDON Kennel and Rough
Collies in general. These were CORYDON LA STUPENDA,
CORYDON WHISPER WILLOW, and the blue merle litter sisters
CORYDON SILVER MOON and CORYDON MOON GODDESS.
They all won first prizes during the year. La Stupenda was the most
successful as she won Best Puppy in the Breed at Notts County Open
Show (this always had a big Rough Collie entry.) and was then
awarded Best Puppy at Bath Ch Show under Mr Bernini from Italy.
Looking back on this win it is strange that his dog (a Pelido) should
return to the UK and be mated to La Stupenda. A mating that
produced Ch Corydon Il Supremo. But more of that in later pages.
Also this year we introduced AUS CH Moon Wizard At Corydon who gave us
Ch. Corydon Blackcat before he went to Australia where he attained his Australian title
