Rutlands Australian Cobberdogs - Super Sire
Rutlands Kelby - A Legend in his own lifetime
The name of Kelby is beloved by families across the world. This wonderful dog and his large following of fans still remember him in 2017 through the amazing puppies he sired.
Kelby's progeny all bear the hallmarks of their illustrious sire, in intuition beyond logical explanation, magnificence in stature and their gentle loving natures. The inspiring tales of Kelby's sons and daughters would fill a website larger than this, or a book of voluminous proportions.
His tragic loss by deceitful means through the alleged collaboration of Twyla Pyles in Texas and her alleged accomplice Kate Pappas in California, will not affect his influence on the breed, due to his frozen semen and through his progeny still breeding, but on a personal level I will forever mourn his physical loss to me. The last time I looked into Kelby's beautiful expressive eyes in Texas, I thought it was 'au revoir' but it was to be 'goodbye'. I didn't know it, but I think Kelby did. There was something inexplicable in his expression that I couldn't read on that fateful night but which I understand now. Wherever you are Kelby, I will always love you.
Kelby sons and daughters, grand children and beyond, carry on his legacy here and across the world.
