CORYDON HANNALARA was the litter sister of Ch Corydon Handsome Hotspur. She had a limited show career because she was rather on the big side, in fact she was taller than her very famous brother. But again what a dam.
Her first litter to Ch Rokeby the Radical born 19/10/81 contained six puppies, three dogs and three bitches all sable and white, and contained one of the breeds great bitches Ch Corydon Glory Hallelujah.
Her second litter born 7/2/1984 to NZ Ch Corydon Hot Rod contained five puppies, one tri dog and two sables dogs and two sable bitches, and contained Corydon Hell Raiser a really lovely Collie who unfortunately got badly injured in a fight when we sent him to New Zealand. Before this he had won 2 CCs in his new country, and then he was bought by Denise Grace who looked after him so well. He sired several New Zealand Champions, but because of the injury he was not able to be shown any more. A grat pity as when I saw him in 1987 I thought that he was quite outstanding an opinion that was endorsed by Audrey Chatfield when she went there and saw him.
Lara’s third litter was to Ch Corydon Gold Star and produced four puppies three bitches and one dog, all sable and white and contained another outstanding dam in Corydon Gold Delilah, and the sable dog INT Ch Gorydon Gold Lariot.
Litter number four was again by Gold Star but contained just two puppies who went as pets.
Altogether she had seventeen puppies but only one tricolour.
Lara and Oscar her brother must be responsible for literally hundreds of champions throughout Europe and Australia and new Zealand. In fact there must be very few Rough Collies in those countries that do not have one or both of them in their pedigrees.
She again was a great pet and out lived her brother by a year, as so often is the case with brother and sister, the female lasting longer than the male.
