The Reserve CC Winners


Born 28/8/1966

By Ch Larkena Vanara Golden Victor ex Corydon Bella Donna

His win:

5/4/1969 West of England Collie Society - Judge Mr T D Purvis.

He was a nice well balanced dog who never grew quite enough coat to get any really big wins. But he was important to us as he figures in the generations, being the sire of Corydon Quo Vadis.

He did win Third Prize in the Open Dog Class at Crufts in 1969. This was quite an experience because we had a very heavy fall of snow overnight, and as we had to leave early I drove on virgin snow for the first 50 miles. But it was worth it, as due to this win he fronted the Breed in the Crufts Catalogue the following year.

We gave him to some friends when we moved to our present home in 1972.
