2014

The end of another year of showing. A year that produced mixed results but I think also anther breed record. I cannot think of any other kennel breeding five different puppies who won Best Puppy awards at Championship Shows in any one year. These were CORYDON BLUE FIZZ Best Puppy in the breed at Crufts. CORYDON THE RINGLEADER. Best Puppy at the Yorkshire Collie Club Championship Show. His litter sister CORYDON FEMME FATALE FOR MEJOLA won Best Puppy at Richmond Championship Show. CORYDON DARK VICTRESS Won Best Puppy in Show at the Smooth Collie Club of Great Britain Ch Show, and her litter sister CORYDON VICTORIANA AT DEMELEWIS won Best Puppy at Midland Counties Ch Show. This is really an amazing record.
Sunday 31st August was Yorkshire Collie Club’s Championship Show. Dog judge was Thomas Rohlin from Denmark. The real surprise was our new dog puppy at his very first show. Aged just 6 months and 24 days. CORYDON THE RINGLEADER. He won the Minor Puppy Dog Class, the Maiden Dog Class and the Novice Dog Class. In the Challenge for the top honours he was awarded the Reserve Challenge Certificate. He then won the challenge for Reserve Best in Show. He must be the youngest ever Rough Collie Dog to win such a high award in the UK. He was also awarded Best Puppy in Show. With this win he also won his way into The Kennel Club Stud Book. There were over 130 Rough Collies entered at this show. Several were Champions. He went on to win his title is style winning a Group on the way. For me one of the best Rough Collies I have ever seen. Mejola My Blue Heaven For Corydon was the CC winner this year and we had 4 Reserve CC winners

CORYDON THE RINGLEEDER at Yorkshire Collie Ch Show where he won the Reserve CC and Reserve Best in show at the age of 6 months and 24 days.
