A happy new year to all readers and Corgi enthusiasts everywhere, and let’s hope for good luck in everyone’s breeding plans during 2020. It would be great to see more new exhibitors and more people interested in breeding responsibly and more cheerful camaraderie round the ringsides would be wonderful too.
Sorry to hear of a couple of households for whom the holiday season wasn’t been altogether joyful. Sadly Teresa and Pat Maddox have lost Salvenik Super Duper Star at the age of seven. ‘Dave’ was by Ch/Am Ch Rosewood Set Sail to Salvenik ex Salvenik Star Performer, from the repeat mating of that which produced Chs Set To Star and Swing On A Star.. He won a CC and several reserves.
Then Chris and Elizabeth Cuthbert have said goodbye to Salvenik Star Magic with Triella at not quite three years. ‘Evie’ was by Redfordhill Magic Moments to Salvenik ex Salvenik Star Drop and had done quite a bit of winning.
Both sets of owners are heartbroken and we send our sympathy.
Here’s a look at the reserve CC winners of 2019, starting with the males who also won CCs during the year, and whose details I gave last week.
Redfordhill Magic Moments to Salvenik won four RCCs, and Ch Penliath Spanner In The Worx three.
