Ruby, our Standard Poodle

Reserve champions in the 4-H beginner dog showmanship class at the Holt County Fair! We are very proud of both of our girls. Ruby is the fist standard that we have ever been around. She is an amazing part of our family and we all absolutely adore her! We find ourselves falling in love with Ruby and the poodle breed over and over again. She is a perfect example of what a standard poodle should be: Loving, funny, smart, athletic, friendly and a natural in the show ring. Thanks so much, Barb, for introducing us to the red poodles and for breeding in quality and health in such beautiful dogs. In our rural area, standards are very uncommon (especially the reds). People are pleasantly surprised when we tell them that our "fancy" dog loves a good mud puddle! We receive countless compliments on what a pretty dog Ruby is. We feel that we don't deserve the credit here ~ so here's to Heartland Classics and their dogs!!!
