Alaskan Sunrise at Kelltara
16.12.99 to 5.8.09
Alaskan Sunrise at Kelltara, aka “Corby” was bred by the late Janetta Parkyns & Pat Phillips out of Tulluq av Tasermiut (imp) and by another top winning Greenland Dog Artik at Seacourt (imp), he was owned by Janetta & Steve Phillips.
He is the breed record holder and a few of his many significant wins include; a puppy group at Walsall open show at 7 months of age, he took his 1st best of breed and also best puppy under Terry Thorn at Darlington at 9 months of age, he was reserve best puppy in show at the Nordic Show under Mrs Clare Coxall at 11months of age, he was top rare breed working at the National Working & Pastoral Breed show, he won over 30 best of breeds, he was best of breed at Crufts 4 times and was Top Greenland Dog for many years.
He was loved by everyone who knew him and was a wonderful ambassador for the breed. He was responsible for winning many people over to Greenland Dogs with his exceptional, friendly temperament and his commanding performances in the show ring.
He will be remembered fondly by so many people and for those who visited him at home, they will surely remember the huge marrowbones he would proudly parade around with. He has sadly been taken far too young and will be missed by many.
